Our History

The team is led by Phil Thomas, now following his personal enthusiasm for property and interiors, after a career devoted to delivering multi-million pound projects for household names in creative industries.

Alongside his professional career, Phil has spent the past two decades developing property and sourcing interiors. With three children and a golden retriever, Phil’s obsession for authentic design and quality couple with his thoughtful and considerate approach to produce inspiring yet practical solutions.

Albert’s House benefits hugely from this uniquely rounded experience, giving an understanding of the process and potential pitfalls, from both contractor’s and client’s perspective.

Our Approach

We spend time getting to know our clients and develop a feel for your style, lifestyle, tastes and aspirations. Through open dialogue we build a picture of you, your space and exactly how you want it to be used.

Every house and every client has their own unique character. An Albert’s House project will respect and reflect that. Success comes from getting the balance right. The balance of individuality and practicality; of heritage and modernity; of dream and delivery.

Once we agree on a shared vision, we approach the project with the perspective of a client – with a client’s resistance to compromise.

Using the best operators across all trades and professions, we commit to give an outstanding experience through integrity, responsive service and the highest levels of craftsmanship.

Our Process

STEP 1

Discovery, Planning and Consultation

Through discovery meetings at the property, Albert’s House will take the time to fully understand your requirements and offer clear, honest guidance and advice.

Working closely with you, we can ensure that all details are covered, to clarify the vision and provide the optimum concept solution. Where required, we’ll introduce you to appropriate architects for your build. Alternatively, if you have already engaged professional services, we will work with your chosen architect to provide the highest levels of service across the project.

STEP 2

Pricing and Specification

An accurate costing and specification from the outset is of paramount importance to all clients.

Thorough planning with our professions and trades enables us to estimate and provide the correct price, first time, for all aspects of your project. That way you know exactly what you’re paying for and are clear on the cost.

Inevitably you may decide to amend options as we progress, but with accurate upfront planning, unexpected costs are minimised.

STEP 3

Engaging Albert’s House

Prior to commencing, we’ll review your project in detail and provide a full schedule of works.

This precise explanation of the process and timeline will enable you to understand exactly what to expect and be assured and confident from the outset.

STEP 4

Project Management

Effective management and co-ordination is critical for any project to run to time and budget.

Phil and the team ensure that this is the case for all Albert’s House projects, with clear and timely communication back to our clients to be certain they remain fully briefed.

STEP 5

Post-completion follow-ups

Our commitment to the highest levels of service and craftsmanship does not end the day we leave site.

Post project follow-ups one month, six months and twelve months after completion, allow us to check-in with our clients and ensure their on-going satisfaction.
