About Louis Kingwill
I am fundamentally a very hands on and practical person and I love my job.
I have 13 years experience as a self employed general builder. I have worked in and around the Bath area for all of this time. I have during this time been fortunate enough to work on some fantastic older listed buildings as well as a few contemporary projects.
Midford Castle, Dyrham park, Dittarage house to mention but a few.
I undertake projects ranging from loft conversions, extensions, garden landscaping, complete refurbs and renovations, natural stone & hard wood flooring, bathrooms and kitchens to bespoke timber and steel work.
I have during this time expanded my own "prowess" and also fine tuned my team of guys to encompass "all things building"
I am able to do any work from plan. Or can provide advice and guidence for smaller projects.
I employ a small team of 5 chaps whose skills range from labourer, carpentry, plastering, tiling, flooring, structural steel work, welding, hard & soft landscaping, roofing to brick laying & stone masonry.
I make use of a vetted and trusted array of sub contractors for plumbing, electrics, damp proofing, home alarm systems, upvc installation as well as some other specialist trades.
I am always happy to put clients in touch with my aproved architect, structural engineer or planning consultant.
This business model allows me to provide a more personal service while still enabling me to keep overheads down!
I have a very good relationship with local planning authorities and am always happy to manage this aspect of build if required.
Lastly and most importantly. I am flexible! I accept and embrace the complexities of my chosen profession and take great pride in resolving any challenge.
