Tom is Olive & Umber’s founder and I (Claire) jumped on and came along for the ride. I have done various bits and pieces since the beginning but I accidentally stepped into my social media role in September 2019 when I could see this was something the business was missing.

Olive & Umber was born out of frustration! Tom began to see a pattern emerge the more he spoke to people about their experiences when embarking on a major renovation/build to their homes. The domestic construction world seemed to be tarnished by the same poor customer service and quality of build, time and time again. It was this that made Tom want to provide a service that everybody embarking on a project deserves.

Tom is at the forefront of everything that happens with Olive & Umber. He is the one that drives things forwards with passion and focus that I greatly admire. He has a way of explaining things to clients, simplifying the process and helping them feel at ease and fully involved.

If you were to choose our turnkey service, or full design & build package it would be Tom that would have an overview of your project. Currently he oversees every project as Project Manager and is there from day 1 and throughout your project, right until the very end! The consultancy slots that we are now able to offer are aimed at people who are doing their own self renovation project but need a little bit of expert support. These calls are all taken by Tom to ensure you are getting the most of time you book with us.

I (Claire) am the one behind all the social media platforms for Olive & Umber. I am a woman of many words. I love to talk. I love to ask questions and I love to express myself. I get excited over the simplest things and I am super organised…

Being involved in Social Media world was not something I ever anticipated doing in my lifetime but as time goes by I realise it is right up my street. Everyday is varied and as the business moves forwards, the social media world always makes me step back and go wow! It suits my personality. I like the fast moving pace of it and the energy from other accounts.

I aim in every post and blog to get our personality across so that you can get a better insight into who we are and how we work.

We may be different but in this business our personalities seem to compliment each other quite well and long may it continue!
