TN Design & Build Team

The people that build your dream!

Tom Nicholls


I’m Tom Nicholls and ever since I can remember I have had a passion for building things! Spending over 10 years perfecting my trade as a bricklayer on many a building sites across Surrey. With projects running over time, over budget and not to the highest standards, I avidly believed then as I do now, that we could offer something better.

It was my dream to start TN Design & Build in Walton on Thames, Surrey, over 8 years ago. With a vision to provide the highest quality workmanship and personal experience to each and every customer. I now get to help people every day build their dream home.

But I certainly don’t do it alone.

For each project, we bring on our talented and trusted partners. These relationships are critical to success and we thrive on these long-standing relationships and the different perspectives they bring to ensure we keep our design and builds up to date and competitive.



Unlike many other small businesses, we have our in-house accountant. Sharon ensures we deliver on one of our core standards of trust.

Keeping your project costs up to date and with fortnightly invoicing throughout a job, there will be no hidden or surprise costs.


Office Co-ordinator

In the office, is Kimberley. As your first point of contact, she will arrange everything from the initial meeting with Tom through to keeping you up to date at every stage of the build.

As a busy mum, she understands the challenges of juggling family life with work commitments, let alone a new build project too!

Kimberley will listen to any concerns, answer your questions and provide reassurance throughout the life of your build.


Site Foreman

Regardless of the nature or size of job, you will have your own dedicated Site Foreman running the smooth day to day management of your build. Their main priority is to organise and deliver your build on time (or ahead if they can) and to the highest standard.

Chris is one of our Site Foremen and he ensures that his designated sites run smoothly, whether that is hands on working on site or in the office coordinating behind the scenes. He has many years of experience in this role and also the personal experience of undergoing a house renovation on his own home.


Accounts and Admin Assistant

Emma works closely with Sharon and Kimberley to continually work on refining TN's customer experience and help with any enquiries to ensure that your project always runs smoothly.

As a member of the office team, Emma is also another proactive and reassuring voice who will be a point of contact throughout your build.
