Tom’s previous employment saw him working alongside a builder for 5 years in an around the North Cotswolds, this hands-on experience is already proving hugely beneficial when involved in the technical side of construction projects or helping to diagnose defects within properties.

Project case study

Kirkham Pryer were proud to have been involved with the full refurbishment and extension of a semi-detached property half a mile from Cheltenham town centre. KP were involved with creating a specification applicable to the proposed works which was then used to invite competitive tender from suitable contractors. Once a building firm had been instructed, we were then involved with the project management of the works, right through to completion.

The client was keen to incorporate a host of modern alternative methods for using energy and water. The final result included roof tiles which were designed to look the same as the chosen roof tiles; grey water harvesting which collected the rain water from the roofs of the property, which was then used to flush toilets and for cleaning cars and the most up to date insulation including triple glazed aluminium windows and doors.
