Our History


Standage & Company Limited is established by William H Standage, Alan G Chambers and Percy Mitchell “to carry on the trades or businesses of builders.”


Alan Brain buys shares in Standage & Co. which is carrying out groundworks on behalf of London County Council.


Alan Brain’s son, Mike, becomes Managing Director and transforms the business from local builder to recognised contractor in London’s public sector refurbishment market.


Chris Brain, Mike’s son, takes over as Managing Director and develops the business into the private sector whilst maintaining good and recurring relationships with the public sector.
