About Us

Owner and Director of the company,
Steven Blades (L.C.G.I), has over 25 years experience as a general builder and bricklayer. He started his career with a three year apprenticeship at R.Hogg and Son, a highly recognised restoration company, where he learnt all aspects of historical and general building. He went on to successfully pass his City and Guilds in Bricklaying with distinction and credits, as well as gaining a Diploma in Construction.

Steven won "Apprentice of the Year" at West Suffolk College and represented the college in three regional and national competitions.
Steven started his own business in 1995.

Steven is proud of the reputation his company has acquired over the years for quality and reliability.

Cherri Blades
is joint director of the company and whilst is not involved in the day to day running of the company, she provides strategic input and guidance.

David Fletcher
joined in 2003 as a newly qualifyed bricklayer. Over the years he has developed and perfected his skills in all areas of building work. David's knowledge and experience mean that he is confident when appointed general foreman on jobs.

He has an NVQ level 2 in brickwork and is fully trained in first aid.

Outside work, David is a keen footballer playing for his local team.

A carpenter by trade who initially worked for the company as a subcontractor. Given the amount of carpentry work that we undertake and the quality of his work we were delighted that he joined SP Blades Construction Services Ltd as our full time employed carpenter. Richard is very experienced and can turn his hand (and does!) to much more than just carpentry.

He joined us recently as an apprentice bricklayer and is combining working on site with studying for his NVQ at West Suffolk College in Bury St Edmunds one day a week

Even though retired,
Terry Blades, has a valuable place in the team. He continually helps to order and collect the highest quality materials and has vast knowledge in bathroom and plumbing fittings. Over the years Terry has built good working relationships with suppliers and can be relied upon to source materials at the best possible price.

Terry likes attending all types of auctions and has a keen eye for a bargain.

Rebekah runs the office ensuring that paperwork is dealt with efficiently. She is responsible for settling all accounts, managing the website (with Hannah, Steven's daughter) and Payroll.

When in the mood Rebekah is a dab hand with the hoover!

Steven employs a specialist team of subcontractors who have detailed and extensive knowledge in their industries. They include electricians, plumbers, carpenters, plasterers and decorators.

All subcontractors are carefully vetted by Steven and most have worked with him for many years. Steven is happy to endorse their work and have them as part of his team.
