Experience You Need,
Workmanship You Can Count On


There are many things to consider when renovating your home or building an extension to your period property.

The team you choose must:

  • Create and adhere to designs
  • Be skilled in traditional building materials and methods
  • Have qualifications, certification and insurance
  • Problem-solve with modern-day tools and processes
  • Maintain a good relationship with local building control offices
  • Be able to envision your dreams
  • Communicate clearly and effectively


…all within your budget and timeframe.

With Parker SW, your home is in good hands.

Alex Parker combines over 35 years of experience in the trades with an approachability and air of respect that has his clients returning and referring many times over. After 10 years in new build construction, he was hired by the National Trust to maintain their locally listed properties. He had found his passion, and he spent the next 20 years maintaining historic homes using traditional materials and methods while conforming to building control standards.

In 2014, Alex founded Parker SW Ltd. to provide a different kind of building service to homeowners in Gloucestershire County: one that is skilled, professional, reliable and highly communicative.


Here’s what some of them have to say:

"I would be happy to recommend Alex to anyone thinking of undertaking building work. The work was of a very high standard and met all of our expectations. Communication was excellent and we felt we were able to ask any questions necessary, and trusted Alex's input. Alex put us at ease throughout the process and we were confident that the job would be satisfactory from the first meeting."
Kirsty Armstrong
"Alex is a good communicator and kept me informed of the progress on a weekly basis. His team always turned up on time and work very hard to complete what was logistically, a difficult project to execute. The workmanship is excellent and the oak timber work outstanding. In short, a quality outfit."
Keith MacEke
