Thorogood Building is a family-run business, directed by David Thorogood. We are a team of construction professionals with a strong track record in residential projects. We have a range of clients. Some are very much hands-on others just want the job done with minimal involvement. Drawing on 25 years experience we have a sound knowledge of building and construction techniques and work with architects, designers and our clients to determine what works best for them. Helping to find the best possible solutions, our philosophy is to build homes - not houses. 

David has a varied background. He started out in the military with the Royal Engineers working on projects including a school in Kenya and the Kenyan Army Barracks. During his subsequent career, he worked for major building contractors in London and the South East on large scale projects such as the redevelopment of Whiteleys shopping centre in Bayswater with Balfour Beatty. He also has 8 years experience in infrastructure development with Consultant Engineers Symonds.

Relocating to Devon in 1997 to start his own business, he worked on his own residential developments and building projects for clients, eventually specialising in the construction of oak-framed houses. David is now back in London running a team of builders and project managing renovations, refurbishments, extensions and new builds across Central London.

David and his team are committed to delivering high quality buildings that are beautiful and practical. Recent projects have included:

  • a design and build refurbishment in Bayswater
  • a Landscape garden project in Chiswick
  • a mansard roof repair and associated works to a Grade two listed house in Kennington
