RAW Building is family owned business, owned and managed by partners Richard Coudret, a qualified carpenter and Wendy Sherlock, marketing/business professional.
So where does the name RAW come from? Well, it's a simple story. When trying to choose a name for our building business, we both knew that people struggle to pronounce Richard's surname Coudret (say it like "Coo-dre' with a silent 't') so we went for something straight forward that combined both of us - R for Richard And W for Wendy.
Richard has over 17 years of carpentry experience, working on a wide variety of projects. From architecturally designed homes, home renovations, extensions to existing houses, extensive alterations to group home new builds.
Richard is a Registered Master Builder, a recognised hallmark of quality. Master Builders are recognised for their qualified and experienced builders who take pride the quality of their workmanship. As a Master Builder, we can offer you the peace of mind of a 10-year Master Build Guarantee on residential work. To become a Registered Master Builder, building experience, trade or professional qualifications and practical management experience are assessed. Workmanship is inspected and previous clients contacted, to ensure the applicant’s work is of a high standard and has satisfied clients’ expectations. In addition applicants must provide evidence of financial responsibility with written references from their bank, accountant and building material suppliers.
Richard also draws upon the expertise of various sub contractors, quantity surveyors, architects and contract qualified building staff to fulfill the requirements of each project.
Wendy's experience lies in project management, HR, business processes, accounts, H & S and marketing. She also has almost two decades experience in marketing, particularly digital marketing, project management and bespoke digital developments whilst juggling a young family.
