Our Team

Our staff's skills and experience have allowed us to not only expand but to diversify.

As a company, we built our reputation on discreet, efficient refurbishments, concession work and extensions across the retail spectrum. Those services are still central to what we do.

Since 2011 we have expanded our offering to include much larger projects and complete new-builds.

Helping to enable this scale of expansion are a great many new members of staff. They extend not just our numbers, but also our skills, expertise and experience.

Managing Director Nathan Dartmouth heads the company’s day-to-day operations. The son of founder Michael Dartmouth, Nathan is a Chartered Surveyor with extensive experience of project managing retail site construction and refits. His team of experienced project managers, site managers and operatives have a wealth of experience in all aspects of construction, electrical and mechanical works.
