About Private Building Services

My name is Chris Stovold and run Private Building Services. My time in the construction industry goes back 20 years. I started off labouring on various jobs for a couple of years. I worked for British Rail on one of their gangs repairing stations, retaining walls etc, and worked for a year labouring with a carpenter on a high spec private warehouse conversion. I then dipped a toe into the world of building maintenance and worked for a housing association repairing their properties. After that I got myself a van with tools and started to do private building work and handy-manning for domestic customers. During this time I also did an NVQ 2 in plumbing, and as part of my personal development at this time... worked as an emergency plumber for a big plumbing firm for a few months. Since then I have been self employed doing bathrooms, toilets, shower rooms and general plumbing work.
