Renovate Contracts Ltd was formed in August 2003 and currently has two Directors; Duncan MacLauchlan (Managing Director) & Olliver Whittington (Contracts Director).

Duncan has been working with Timber for the past 35 years and has a wealth of knowledge when it comes down to timber. Duncan’s background in flooring dates back to 1992 when he started working as a Sub-Contractor. This means that he can assess, explain and problem solve the majority of flooring issues, due to his extensive knowledge and experience in the flooring industry, whether it is damp issues or sub floor works ranging from sprung floors to metal access floors.

Olly started working for Renovate Contracts in October 2003 as a sub-contractor, learning as much as possible from Duncan. He has over 10 years’ experience on the tools. Olly was employed by Renovate Contracts in 2011 and has worked his way through the ranks of the Company. Olly's focus is on running the team and is predominantly responsible for winning new work and maintaining client relationships.
