Colin started his training in the construction industry as a designer for a pre-stressed concrete supplier before going on to work for himself as a draughtsman carrying out the design of many projects and home extensions. C&S Fox Developments was formed in 1990 and we built our first house in Great Stukeley.
Colin Fox manages the "building side" of the company, starting with visiting potential clients at the initial sales meeting, costing and producing the detailed quotation for the project and then designing and drawing the plans, estimating and ordering the materials, planning in the necessary staff for the build itself and then managing the site on a daily basis to ensure the projects run smoothly. He also liaises with the local planning authority and manages the building regulations ensuring work meets all necessary approvals.
The S in C&S Fox Ltd is Sarah – office manager, administrator, book-keeper, and sorter of legal matters as well as contributing on the interior design of projects. She has been known to occasionally don a hardhat and help on site if needs must. Sarah studied business studies at Humberside gaining an honours degree and started work in London for a Finnish engineering and forestry company. When family life beckoned she gave up commuting and stayed home to become mother to three children and to help Colin run the building company.
We have since built over 35 new properties in the area and carried out the design and build of many extensions and home renovations.
