Company info

I am a bricklayer by trade, but undertake all manner of building works. New builds, refurbishment, landscaping, groundworks, home improvements, , general plumbing. I have over 20 years experience on all manner of projects. Our aim is to create a company that is synonymous with quality and hard-work. We strive to use the best tradesmen we can find, and most importantly the right trade for the right job. 

I found my way into construction by starting out as a bricklayer. I attended local college. I then worked my way up through our apprenticeships on various projects, ranging from new build houses, in brick, block, stone work, and Bath stone. I have worked a lot on house renovations and re modelling, including structural works, to internal walls, removal of walls to form openings, and the insertion of steels to accommodate this work. I have also worked on various listed building projects, and are familiar with lime mortar work.


I have a high level of experience with project management, these projects range from extensions, new build houses, and large refurbishment jobs. Notably a large housing development in Bradford On Avon which I project managed.


Great Western Building Services are very focused, determined and have high expectations of what we would like to achieve. This simply is to provide the best service at the best price possible. Our attention to detail, and quality of finish is what ensures GWBS stands out from other contractors.


We very much believe in our abilities and hope that you will give us a chance to prove that, with attention to customer service and great communication between us and our clients, not all builders are the same.
