About grand urban ideas

We have certainly had a few hurdles to cross over the yrs, some quite literally in the form of a boggy swamp which involved a 2 tonne machine & the construction of new timber causeway ! Another being the small matter of getting 30 tonne of marble patio slabs up 6 stories to lay a terrace, whilst our crane blocked one side of the approach to Battersea bridge for 4 hours!. Just a few examples of the challenges and obstacles that keeps the job exciting even after 20 yrs.


After succesfully completing a three yr bricklaying apprentiship gaining level 2/3 NVQ i have been working in the industry both for myself & for a number of developers, gaining a large amount of knowledge over 20 yrs, putting together a creditable portfolio (cscs card holder) Covering all aspects of brickwork: design & construction, We also specialise in the design & construction of complete garden and landscaping projects. I have worked on varied landscaping projects for many years, for myself, and was lucky enough to work along side designers and landscapers for some years, whilst being a foreman, then head foreman of DCKG landscapes based in Dorney, Eton. This period of work enabled me to enhance my knowledge of design processes, pricing and quantity surveying projects.
