About Parker SW Ltd

Your home is in safe hands with Parker SW Ltd

Parker SW Ltd is a building contractor based in the Forest of Dean and covering the surrounding areas.

The company is owned and managed by Alex Parker. Alex has over 35 years experience working within various sections of the building trade; he began his career working on new builds, but was later hired by the National Trust to maintain their locally listed properties. In this, Alex found his passion, and he spent the next 20 years carefully restoring and maintaining historic properties.

In 2014 Alex founded Parker SW Ltd, a company which works on new builds and extensions to both old and newer properties. Parker SW Ltd uses a range of approaches depending on the project. The company has a strong belief in maintaining the integrity of the building, always working on producing a result that is sympathetic to the existing structure and its surrounding environment.

In order to achieve this, a mixture of traditional and modern building methods and materials are used, whilst conforming to current building control standards and regulations.

Our most recent project has been a new build events room at The Speech House in the Forest of Dean. The Speech House is a wonderful building; a former 17th century hunting lodge. Parker SW Ltd was selected as the main building contractor to manage the project from start to finish, creating a large timber frame, locally sourced stone building to be used for weddings and functions.

We work hard to be accredited by The Federation of Master Builders and we also appear on MyBuilder.com. You can read some of our customer testimonials on these sites.

Here’s what some of them have to say:

"We hired Alex for an extension to a stone cottage. He was enthusiastic and helpful, suggesting ideas we hadn’t thought of, and always responded promptly and in detail to emails and phone calls.

Workmanship was high quality, with materials used complementing the existing house, and problems were dealt with quickly and without complaint."
Mr Brian Philips
"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
