B.D. Upton Builders


Dick Upton 1946-2019

Tuesday 19th May 2020

Dick sadly passed away on the 28th of November 2019 after bravely battling leukaemia. He will be greatly missed and we will try and keep building to the high standards he set himself and us through the years.

Dick Upton was born in 1946 and began his career as an apprentice at WG West Builders in Wisbech. He very quickly worked his way up to Foreman/Manager and then decided to go on his own in business in 1972. Dicks wife, Roz did the book keeping/payroll and general office duties for many years before retiring.

Together they concentrated mainly on the extension and refurbishment market, with some new build properties and some Industrial and Local Authority work so Dick had a wide range of experience and a flexible approach.

Dick retired at in 2012 at the age of 67 and Chris his son continues to concentrate on new build properties for sale and rental purposes. Louise his daughter runs the office side of the business.
