Hi, I’m Tom, founder and co-director of THS Concepts. I started the business in February 2013. Before THS Concepts, I was a marine civil engineer working for a company called Red7Marine.
I started the business to provide local architects with quality survey information to base their proposed designs from. Obtaining accurate survey information for a building project from the start is important. I found that architects often lacked the time and the equipment to undertake this task correctly.
The business was started from my kitchen table, however, this quickly graduated to a small office nearby as the business grew.
In 2014 I was joined by my good friend and now business partner Chris Horton (B.Arch). Before THS Concepts, Chris was working for SimpsonHaugh, a large architectural company based in London.
Chris has helped enormously with the business and has used his experience in architectural design to bring a new level of professionalism to the business.
Six years, three office upgrades and about 1,000 jobs later, THS Concepts is a team of six people and one of the leading surveying businesses in South East England. We’re based in Leigh-on-Sea, recently voted the happiest place to live in the UK.
Chris and I both have our dogs (Rolo and Ronnie) which we are in the fortunate position to be able to bring to the office when they need looking after.
