Having had a complete renovation and refurbishment for her new home, she found that as a working couple it was extremely difficult to manage the builders, time spent liaising and the stressful experience!

Sadia decided to change the business model and provide the full "360" Building service for residential market and since then the business has grown from strength to strength. The aim is to develop her business by providing the customer service which has been lacking in this industry. Building sector which is primarily male dominated needs a feminine input to bring that personalised service.
