Our family business was founded over 80 years ago by my grandfather, John Tilbury, and since then we have built and refurbished thousands of residential and commercial properties in and around London. Over the past forty years, my father David Tilbury Senior has worked for his father John Tilbury. His tradition continues, and he now works with me… does that mean he works for me? Having extensive experience in the field, David Tilbury Senior is a skilled builder who is capable of doing almost anything.
My father gave me the opportunity to work for him in 1994, which certainly presented some challenges. I soon gained confidence in my own abilities due to Dad and our team’s constant results. After leaving University in 2001, I realized I wanted to carry on the family tradition, but my parents encouraged me to complete my education first.
