1973 – 2018
Graduating from the Inchbald school of Design in 1971, Tim Thursfield started his career at a well established architectural practice in London, before deciding to set up his own Venture, Broseley in a small office in Kensington in 1973.
Named after a village in Shropshire with historic connections to the Thursfield family, Broseley started life as a team of three. Tim was not only the business brains, marketing guru and van driver but also chief builder.
The company grew rapidly and within 10 years, he employed more than 20 people and had established Broseley as one of the best known and competent construction companies in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, specialising in private residential building and refurbishment.
In 2005, after years of being involved and interested in the family business, Tim’s son John joined Broseley full time. He is now Managing Director working closely with his father, who is Chief Executive Officer.
Since the early days, the company has stayed true to its values and principles and its commitment to offer an unparalled service to its clients. Broseley has grown considerably and now employs more than 60 people. A good size for economies of scale, yet small enough for a personal and hands on approach.
Fast forward to the present day, and Broseley is now firmly established as a leading building company in central London and recognised by all the top architects and interior designers. Their work ranges from listed property to contemporary homes, from small apartments to large houses. Their highly skilled in-house workforce create basements to roof tops and everything in between.
“This is more than a job to us, and we’re on top of our projects and on every site daily. Where some see limitations and difficulties, we see challenge and opportunity” – John Thursfield
“It’s a family affair where not only do clients, and their relations and friends return to us frequently, but we also have fathers, brothers and sons working for us” – Tim Thursfield
