The history of Parker & Son

Parker and Son have a history spanning back to the 1930s as a specialist building contractor.

Since being established in 1929 by Fred Oaten, the firm has stayed within the family and is now in it’s fourth generation, having being passed to Roy ‘Curly’ Parker, to Chris Parker and finally to Chris’ son, James.

Our focus has always been on quality, in regards to materials, products and workmanship, with regular recommendations from satisfied clients thanks to our knowledge of all aspects of the building industry.

This commitment to delivering the very best service has earned us many high profile jobs, such as set building Turner Prize winning art by Steve McQueen.

One of our projects was to carry out the complete refurbishment of Tickerage Mill, the last home of the famous actress Vivien Leigh. Why not visit Vivien Leigh’s website for pre and post-refurbishment pictures, as well as further information about the property.

We have also appeared on a home improvement TV show with Sarah Green and Ivan Massow.

Long term clients include structural engineers and architects, public services such as the NHS, local authorities and property managers like the National Trust; you can see details on most of these projects in our previous work section.

Today we still operate a small, long term and tight knit team and run apprenticeship schemes for young employees who train on the job with our experienced staff. We invest regularly in training and specialist courses and are members of the Confederation Roofing Contractors and Quality Assurance associations, adhering fully to their codes of conduct on working practices and customer service. The company is also an authorised installer for products such as Sealoflex and Marley Redland Roof Tiles.
