Foundations Up is the building company associated with the highly successful and leading home improvement site, www.diydoctor.org.uk. For many years the team from DIY Doctor has been working on various sites and projects, largely to get images and videos for the DIY Doctor website. Inevitably this took off as more people asked us to help, and we found it hard to say no.
With a passion for building and making homes even more comfortable, we do this for love rather than because we have to. We want to understand exactly what you want to achieve and then deliver this – or even better this.
Our team is the team behind the leading DIY and Home Improvement Website, www.diydoctor.org.uk.
Mike Edwards – Head of Projects
Mike founded the DIY Doctor website in 1999 having already run his own building company for 25 years. Having started as an apprentice and worked his way up he has gathered a wealth of experience and expertise. While he manages our building teams, you will find Mike is very hands on and very quick to get stuck in. It is his expectations of craftsmanship that sets the standard and which we are guarantying for life; Mike leads by example.
Mike is a people person, as you will know if you have ever seen him on the DIY Doctor YouTube channel or speaking on TV or at a Trade Event. He likes fishing and golf, but absolutely loves his dog, Widget!
Charles Dowson – Finance Director
Charles started life in the Army. Having has the edges knocked off there, he started a vehicle tracking business with some friends which was sold successfully in 2009. With two relatively large scale renovation and extension projects under the belt, he joined Mike at DIY Doctor. Charles has a Masters in Business Administration and looks after all the administration and finances for Foundations Up.
Charles is in the middle of the next renovation project and, we suspect, almost certainly will always be doing one project or other. Being a customer of your own business is always a good thing!
