The Foundations Up Construction Team
Founder & Head of Projects
Mike founded the DIY Doctor website in 1999 having already run his own building company for 25 years, starting out as an apprentice he worked his way up and has gathered a wealth of experience and expertise. Whilst he manages our building teams, you will find Mike is very hands-on and enjoys getting stuck in. It is his expectations of craftsmanship that set the standard across the team and which we are guaranteeing 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 started life in the Army, having had 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 his belt, he joined Mike at DIY Doctor in 2013. Charles has a Masters in Business Administration and looks after all the administration and finances for Foundations Up.
Charles is also trained as a domestic energy assessor, so when we were approved as LoftZone installers, it made sense for Charles to look after this area of the business and conduct loft surveys.
