Gary Paice- Managing Director

I am a Chartered Building Surveyor with over 30 years experience in the local Extension & Home Improvement market. My father trained as as an Architect & from an early age I drew my own house designs, and built them in Lego! After graduating from Reading University with an honours degree I worked in Surveying practices for several years before venturing out on my own.

I support Reading FC, and enjoy Photography, Guitars & Golf!

My favourite place on earth is Anna Maria Islands, Florida. I enjoy a good curry!

I built this web site from scratch

Paul T - Foundations & Brickwork

Over 25 years experience, and still loves coming to work every day, rain or shine!

Paul organises the team that usually arrives on day one of an extension project. Passionate about his football & fishing. Spends his Monday nights chasing much younger legs round a 5 a side pitch, still hoping that he will get spotted by Arsenal Much to his wife's embarrassment. An ideal evening out involves a cold beer, and a seat by the pond, with the BBQ on the go. He lists his favourite pastimes as home improvements, gardening, eating, drinking & going on holiday!

His favourite place is Florida.
