“Rob Moore and his team have carried out a number of building projects at our home, from knocking through a double fireplace to building our new patio area. All of the projects demanded attention to detail and a sympathetic eye and Rob and his team were extremely able to fulfil our brief.
Rob was always punctual and up front about any issues that came up during the building work. During work that was potentially dusty or disruptive, Rob ensured that all precautions were taken to minimise mess. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Rob Moore and his team and we will be getting him back for more work in the near future.”
Rob Moore has a wealth of experience in the building trade, learning his skill sets from a large firm, before branching out and setting up his own renowned company.
"I worked for large building companies for a decade following a three-year apprenticeship. Although I trained as a brick layer (gaining my City & Guilds) I learned so many other skills during those 10 years and they have stayed with me to this day.
I left in 2004 and set up my own company. My first job was building a house extension. I loved the work and the freedom of running my own business and since that day I’ve never looked back.
Business boomed and I took on work throughout Somerset, both working directly with my own clients, but also as a sub contractor for other builders. I’ve always preferred to keep my team small, and I’m hands on with every job we do. I like to have direct experience, I do everything with my team — from laying concrete for a new house’s foundations, to installing roof trusses."
… and away from work
“I love to run marathons, having taken up running 7 years ago. So far I have raised well in excess of £10,000 for charity, and earlier this year I completed the London Marathon. More recently I was delighted to cross the finish line of the 100-mile South Downs Way ultra marathon, which involved running through the night to Eastbourne.
Regularly since 2012, I have also visited Africa to assist with the charity project Village by Village, which is associated with the Clean Hands Save Lives project. I made my first trip in November 2012, when I worked on water harvesting and kindergarten construction projects.
In late 2016 I returned to Ghana again, this time working with the community to put in drains around a football pitch. Flash floods had washed part of the pitch away and our work meant that the people could play again, reviving the sense of community that was slowly being eroded without the pitch.”
