WEST is owned and run by Simon Dale.
Simon has 25 years experience in the construction trade including several years with an architectural iron work company where he worked on the Chinese Gates in Soho, the gates in Downing Street, the Roman Arches in Bow and a massive steel and glass atrium for the Galleries shopping centre in Wigan. For the last 20 years he has been renovating town houses and tenements in Glasgow, many of which are listed buildings, and also worked on the seven star (Hilton standards) renovation of the Waldorf Astoria Palace Hilton Hotel in Dubai.
He has worked for the stars of stage and screen and as a contractor on Carol Vordermans Better Homes and he has in depth experience and knowledge of the restoration work required on Victorian and Edwardian buildings.
“We have to be kind to the original features and we often have to work on buildings that have had terrible DIY jobs and poor repairs,” he says. “A lot of remodelling is involved as well. We create new rooms, shift kitchens and bathrooms to other parts of the house and put in ensuite bathrooms which can all be quite complex. Not a square inch goes untouched so we can deliver the perfect house once we are finished, with everything replaced.”
All our works are comprehensively project managed and are carried out by a dedicated team of seasoned trade professionals.
