The Kitchen & Loft Company is celebrating a decade in business. From loft conversions to kitchen extensions and full house renovations, Jason Briggs and his team have the expertise and experience to take even the most challenging project from initial design to build completion

When Jason Briggs, owner of the Kitchen & Loft Company, says that he provides a full design and build service right up to final delivery, he really means final. ‘When we hand over a kitchen the client should be able to walk in and cook and, with a loft conversion, the bathroom should be tiled, fitted and ready for use.’

And Jason is equally no-nonsense in his approach to pricing. ‘We quote for the finished project. I make a point of explaining the complete budget – and that means the build cost and the likely spend on fixtures and fittings. Then, once we’ve agreed a price, it’s fixed. We never ask the client for more money.’ Listening to Jason’s clear-cut business philosophy you sense why he has built such an excellent reputation in Hammersmith and Shepherd’s Bush. He’s justly proud that the Kitchen & Loft Company offers such a dedicated service. ‘We’re a one-stop shop from initial meeting to completion,’ he explains.

‘We have an in-house designer to draw up spatial and structural plans; we guide clients through the planning and Building Control process and we know how to work best with planners to ensure that our applications run smoothly and on schedule; and, of course, our build teams have the expertise and experience to work on all ages and styles of property.’

While Jason is a born and bred West Londoner – he moved to Loftus Road in 1988 and now lives just off Askew Road – his early career was spent abroad. ‘I spent 15 years building factories and managing supply chains in the Far East. But I ended up spending two weeks in every six away from home and, when my first son was born, I found that I was missing too much family time.’

Looking to apply his construction and managerial skills back home, chance then intervened. ‘I was renting a house in Brackenbury and saw a team working on a loft. I liked what I saw, introduced myself and proposed doing a trial conversion with them. I then bought a property and so that first project was actually my own loft. From there the business expanded into kitchen extensions
and whole house renovations and we’re now celebrating our tenth birthday.’

The Kitchen & Loft Company is a traditional building operation. ‘We do not sub-contract out our projects,’ says Jason. ‘All our teams consist of permanent staff and my key people have been with me for at least five years. Each site has its own foreman and I visit every site every day. We have weekly site meetings and clients can always call me direct when they need to.’

With 85% of new work coming from personal recommendations, Jason is always more than happy to show clients around previous projects. ‘From day one you’ll know exactly what to expect from us,’ he says. ‘We enjoy what we do and this is reflected in our work. We’re happy to meet any challenge, we work creatively and we deliver the highest standard of workmanship.’
