About Ubuilt

Working within the built environment for 30 years. Specialising in conversions house refurbishments, loft conversions and extensions.

I started within the property sector as a property manager back in the 1980's. I rubbed shoulders with property developers and property investors and soon became hooked on getting involved hands on.

I have since gained both technical knowledge via university and 20 years hands on experience in all aspects of building. To compliment my experience on site I have also completed practical courses in plastering carpentry and joinery.

I am involved hands on in the building process rather than managing from afar. I am totally comfortable around complex plans, architecture drawings and calcs and can confidently troubleshoot problems as they arise.

I work with a small trusted team across all the disciplines and am totally comfortable managing teams for works outside my specialism where needed.
