The LRC Team

We have an excellent team here at The LRC with highly competent, trained tradesmen who excel at their own individual responsibilities.  We cover all building aspects including plumbing, electrics, gaswork & boiler installations, plastering, carpentry, painting/decorating and tiling.  All of these skills are carried out to the highest standard and in conjunction with governing regulations.  Plumbing, electrical and gas works are fully certified and lodged with the appropriate councils and authorities.  Originals will be given to the client for their own retention and guarantee.  We enjoy working with our clients, giving them a personal, flexible service with the understanding that sometimes the needs of the client can change as the project progresses. We remain flexible to this whilst completing projects to a high standard.

Should you be interested in The LRC undertaking a project for you, please see our details on the Contact Us page to arrange a free, initial meeting in which we will be happy to give you some advice on your project and a free price estimation.

Meet Tom (the Boss)

With a background in steelworks/construction and 6 successful years in the fire brigade, where I gained invaluable experience in health & safety/fire regulations and abseiling, I came to London to project manage, and be fully hands on with the 4th phase commercial metal work package at St Georges Wharf, Vauxhall, London. This included installing the state of the art Gull Wing Roof, for which the abseiling came in very useful!

Once this project was successfully completed, I led a team on domestic refurbishment projects in London.  After a year, and encouragement from my wife, Gill, I decided that it was time to start my own company.

The LRC was formed in 2007.  I started on my own doing bathroom / kitchen refurbishments, whilst also working as a freelance tiler and kitchen fitter for Topps Tiles and Magnet / Howdens respectively.

Fast forward and The LRC now both employs, and works on a regular basis with various tradesmen, who are all excellent at their individual trades and enjoy working together.

We strive to deliver a high quality job which we feel proud of, which gives the client exactly what they have asked for, and, most importantly, something they are delighted with.  I have learnt a lot in my job and I know how much of an invasion building work can be on a households routine.  Client satisfaction stands top of our list on every project, throughout the team.

We run a clean site, 90% of our skip waste is recycled and cardboard is recycled on a daily basis. The LRC cares about every aspect of each project no matter how small or large and I personally project manage each of our projects. Our best adverts are our clients, so please check out our latest testimonials. I love my job!
