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 & Travel!

My favourite place of late is probably Cornwall. Though Crete is up there too.  A good curry, and a Jalapeno & Anchovy Pizza hits the spot!

I built this web site from scratch
