Ethos

Our philosophy is simple. Maximise the potential of the property within the client’s budget, whether that be a simple refurbishment, structural renovation or high-end fit out. We build strong, trusted relationships with our clients through honest, professional and creative advice, cutting-edge design and craftsmanship and budget-conscious intelligent build solutions.

 

We work with you to turn your property dreams into a reality and create exceptional living spaces; designed, constructed and carefully thought through to maximise contemporary living requirements while emphasising your own personality, taste and design flair.

Evolution

Zulufish was founded in 2004 by property developer Felix Milns. Conceived to offer the client the design and build service that he had been unable to find as a client, Zulufish puts customer service, innovative design and expert project management as the cornerstones of construction.

 

Every personal development that Felix has ever undertaken has broken local sales price records, and we bring the same level of design-led and budget-conscious attention to detail to our clients’ projects, taking great pride in not just the end product, but also the manner in which both the design and build are conceived and delivered.

Expertise

Our in-house architectural design team is headed up by Patrick Owens, who has 15 years of experience extending London homes up, down and out. With over 20 years’ experience in textiles and interior design, Caroline Milns heads up our sister company Zulufish Interiors.

 

On the construction side our team of highly skilled project managers bring an additional layer of technical expertise, customer service and a wealth of experience. We have built up a strong core team of site managers and specialist trades, from roofers and joiners to tilers and decorators. We are Safe Contractor approved and proud members of the Federation of Master Builders, use trusted NICEIC electricians and Gas Safe plumbers, and work with a select number of long-term trusted suppliers, from cabinetmakers and stonemasons to specialist paint finishers and structural glaziers.

Engagement

There are several different ways you can engage us, either directly or through a third party architect/interior designer. We provide a full design and build service but can also work to pre-designed plans and drawings, either directly for individual homeowners or as main contractor for a wide range of award-winning architects and interior designers. These firms have come to trust us to deliver not only a superior finished product, but also to manage the build in a measured, timely and creative way.

 

The design and development background of our in-house team offers the additional benefits of creative design input throughout the build, making the experience as stress-free as possible, for both design professional and client.
