Our Team

In October of 2018 we held a team building day at Arena Pursuits near Bewl Water in Kent.

Take a look at the short video we made of the event and find out from Managing Director Charlie Rivers why he thinks team work and team bonding is key to being successful in business.

Our most important asset is our people. We pride ourselves on having a strong group of individuals who not only demonstrate years of construction experience but are personable, respectful of, and care about the clients for whom we provide our services.

Having a builder in your home can be disruptive, messy and inconvenient at the very best of times, but we go to great efforts to ensure that our clients have a positive experience and stress-free time whilst our tradesmen are on site.

I am extremely proud of what Step Three stands for and the ethical approach we have to building. Our clients trust us, they value our knowledge and experience and are happy to recommend us to others because of our team and what we consistently deliver.
