About T White Building Services

After leaving school I did one years full time pre-apprentice course followed by five years apprenticeship in bricklaying. For this I received a YCFE certificate passed with distinction. I then went on to achieve an advanced craft certificate in bricklaying and general building passed with distinction, silver trowel award and completed a three years Technicians course at Building College, passed with honours. I followed my career in building on various sites doing many types of work ie/ nursing homes, housing, schools, hospitals and multi-storey buildings, specialising in chimneys, bullseyes and arches. I built my own house in 1988 (a four bed detached) that I still inhabit. I spent three years property developing with a partner. After this I began working as a Site Manager for various companies, some as long as 8 years, based in various cities such as London and Glasgow. My time spent in London was working on long term contracts with both Harrods and the Royal Albert Hall, totalling 6 years on these two projects alone. After my time working away from home, I decided to set u my own small local building company based in Leeds, where I offer a range of services such as full builds, extensions, refurbishments etc. With all my experience gained in all aspects of building I am able to offer a service that is of an outstanding level of quality and reliability. Most of my work is gained through recommendation and word of mouth from previous clients. I retain the belief that anything in construction is attainable and a level of quality workmanship should always be adhered to.
