A history of Metropolitan Construction (London) Ltd

Rob Dixon, the Managing Director & founder of Metropolitan, served his apprenticeship as a carpenter & joiner and once he had qualified in 1981, became self-employed, working on small projects for clients.

The projects gradually became larger as a result of Rob’s attention to detail and high standards and by the mid-eighties, he was a fully fledged property developer, converting large houses into flats and building complete houses such as 2 and 3 bed detached properties in Surrey and South West London. This continued for a number of years until a change to the tax laws prompted Rob to switch back to a more conventional building business and he formed Metropolitan Construction (London) ltd in 2002.

One of the first jobs which Metropolitan Construction was involved, was a build in Hackney where the architect was the Chairman of RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) at that time. The gentleman in question liked what he saw in terms of the work Metropolitan produced and he recommended Rob and the business to other architects with similar projects. As a result, Metropolitan found itself working with a number of prestigious London based architects on a variety of builds.
