We’re a multi-trade contractor focusing on residential projects. We started in 2014 and we now have hundreds of projects in our portfolio. Most of our work involves bathrooms, kitchens and building work.
This business started in 2014 as an experiment with an estate car, a few hundred pounds and a lot of optimism. It was started by Ilie and Claudiu, father and son, hoping to start a small local business. The former had a lot of construction experience abroad from owning a house building business that hit hard times during the 2007’s house prices crash. The latter was back then an Economics student at University of Aberdeen.
The first job lead was a £40 job that felt like £4000. Little by little, having won a few leads, this encouraged Ilie to quit his job with a major contractor in Aberdeen and Claudiu gave up the part time jobs to focus on this business full time. While the road was very bumpy in the very first months, especially due to Aberdeen’s downturn, things improved gradually.
We changed a lot in the past few years as a business. We have a 6 people team now, multiple vans, a huge amount of quality tools, branded uniforms, jobs in our portfolio exceeding £50 000 and the confidence that we can do work at very high quality levels. All of this was possible mainly due to the fact we reinvested most of our profit back into the business, rather than taking big payouts out of it.
What differentiate us from the other small builders are the complex situations we can handle and the efficiency of our work. Except for the fact that we work hard, we work smart and we are open to change. Every month we try to become a better version of ourselves: we admit where we make mistakes and certainly make sure we avoid them in the future.
There are so many building businesses out there, but so few actually make things right: they are either too expensive, either intentionally undercharge and increase costs later on during the project, lack the experience in that particular field or simply are one-man businesses that simply can’t do everything right on their own. The prices that most of these companies charge are shocking for what they offer, they have a business model that relies on low turnover and a high profit (they get a very large percentage from the sales so they’re happy with just a few very profitable sales)
We are different for the very fact that we are a team that wants to create a valuable service for the community, something that we know is the sure way to guarantee the success of the business in the long term. More specifically this translates in high turnover and small profit (we have hundreds of thousands in turnover, but the profit is just a small percentage from this amount). There’s a lot of work involved in this process and we have virtually no serious competition at the moment.
We’re probably the best option you can get (as long the scope of your project falls into what we do).
