Meet our Renovation Consultant for Berkshire and Basignstoke, Ray Allison!
Ray Allison heads up the Refresh Renovations Berkshire and Basingstoke team; the region’s leading home renovations specialist firm. Ray has compiled a team of the most skilled tradespeople and builders in the country and pooled their expertise to provide comprehensive renovation services for properties of all types, shapes and sizes.
Ray’s professional background has laid the best possible foundations for a fantastic all-encompassing renovations service provider. Starting with an honours degree in estate land management, Ray moved on to a 23-year career in corporate real estate management and operations handling; during which time his interest in environmental and sustainable developments grew. Taking this interest and incorporating it into his work role, he created one of the UK’s most ambitious carbon neutrality programmes for a household name brand – gaining both knowledge and skills along the way that are regularly transferred to the home renovation property projects Refresh work on.
You’d think that such a senior job meant there was little spare time for Ray to indulge in passion projects, but somehow, he found some! Embarking on some personal property projects, he quickly gained an understanding of how to manage home renovations… and having discovered his enjoyment of such work, moved to make it his full time role and started to manage Refresh Berkshire and Basingstoke.
Refresh Berkshire and Basingstoke operate throughout Oxfordshire, Berkshire and Hampshire. Working with the unique Refresh Renovations method, they manage every project from end-to-end – seeing through all refurbishments right through from conception to completion, taking care of every detail and allowing experts to oversee and work on their specialism. A dedicated Refresh Project Consultant is assigned to every project and their role is to manage all staff and the project plan, as well as maintain open and clear communication with all involved and resolve any issues or concerns if or when they arise. Refresh Project Consultants maintain strategic working relationships with local planning authorities, various specialist tradespeople and material suppliers in order to ensure every aspect of their renovations is delivered on-spec, on-time and on-budget.
Ray’s team work on a variety of home renovations, including kitchen design and builds, bathroom design and builds, garage and loft conversions, open-plan layouts, architectural interventions, structural engineering requirements and single-storey extensions. Prices quoted are all-inclusive of the full project management scope and a full quote can be provided during a home visit to see the property and plan out the requirements.
The team in the office with Ray are always willing to chat and will happily talk your ear off when it comes to property renos! They are happy to be approached even at the ‘blue sky thinking’ ideas phase and can work with you to advise what is possible in your home. Refresh can work with you to design your renovation and make it just right for you – no matter how big or small.
All Refresh Renovations franchises are independently owned and operated.
