GBS Construction Contracts Ltd.
Hello my name is Brett Marshall and he’s a bit of history about us and how we started.
After leaving school at 14 in 1998 (before taking any GCSE’s due to unforeseen circumstances in a family tragedy), I started working for a local builder who my family knew. Obviously very young at the time but i’m like a sponge with taking in information or learning.
At 16, I decided to go to college and enrolled in a 3 day a week city and guilds bricklayer course.
I did this for a year, the other days I had spare I worked for a bricklaying gang to learn my trade. After a year of the course I passed my level one and decided to do one day and week and carry on working with the bricklayer gang for the other days. I worked as a hod carrier while I was still learning my trade and when I got time in the work days I would lay bricks as much as I had time for as well as looking after 3-4 bricklayers.
At 21, I decided I wanted to try and go out in the big wide world and try and run my own business so I did just that. I set up my first business doing hard landscaping and got in with a couple of people and it grew from there.
At 23, although very young, I had already been involved in the building Industry for nearly 10 years. I had a couple of older guys working with me at this time who had a lot of experience in the groundwork side of the business. i.e. foundations etc. when I started to build great foundations at age 25, GBS Construction was formed.
It went from strength to strength. Not only were we doing the brickwork for extensions we were also doing all the groundwork and drainage from the foundations up. Now 20 years after I started we now have a wealth of experience in our team. All my team are fully qualified fully professional and have a very high standard of work as I expect nothing less. I pride myself on doing the best possible job we can and I’ve got very high standards.
99% of our business is through recommendations and referrals.
We provide both pre and post works care, ensuring all of our clients are satisfied with works carried out and take great pride in the resulting reputation which as you will see from our testimonials has resulted in repeat work for many clients and a high referral rate for new business.
There’s is no job too big or small for us to accommodate.
I formed our new limited company GBS Construction Contracts Ltd. as well as another I am involved in a different sector in December of 2016 and we are going from strength to strength with repeat business.
We specialise in building the super structure.
For you guys who do not know what this means it is that’s we are employed to build the shell of the new build of extension or whatever it may be. Meaning we come in excavate the foundations, drainage, concrete. Get the brickwork and blockwork shell up and then get the roof on and get the job watertight and then normally move on to the next one.
In some cases we will take on the whole job start to finish as I have all the different trades men and women on my books if need be. But we really do specialise in all of the above. We do offer a full project management service also.
Thanks for you time to read about us and hope to hear from you soon.
