BESPOKE BUILDS


We talk to Brad from Bradley Building Services to find out about the family business he runs with his father, Colin


How long have you worked together - why does it work so well? Dad and I have worked together since I left school - so around 17 years. I even used to come to jobs from as young as five so I’ve been around building sites for as long as I can remember. I think we work well together as we’re polar opposites and our skills sets complement one another.


For example - Dad is hands on, an extrovert and a natural leader so he is great at keeping the lads in check, dealing with customers and taking care of technical problems on site. He’s the face of BBS.


I’m an introvert, more computer-literate and more of a strategic person, so I’m better suited to overseeing the whole operation from the office, scheduling projects and trades, taking care of our sales process, estimating, admin and finances.

Also the fact that we’re family run means there’s a depth to BBS. It’s more than just a business to us so we’re both very dedicated to its success and as a result, to our clients.


Tell us about the business’s experience. We’ve been at it for a combined total of 50 years so there’s plenty of that! We both started on the tools so we’ve been there, done that and got the scars and grey hairs to prove it.


How do you get new work - is it architect referrals or straight from client? We have a few different sources of enquiries. Recommendations from previous clients have always yielded the most for us which is the way we like it. It means we’re doing something right. We also get some from architects, advertising and direct mail.
