Our History & Culture
Potter Raper was founded in 1970 by the late Gerry Potter and Mike Raper.
Founded in 1970 by the late Gerry Potter and Mike Raper, we have continued to grow our Construction Consultancy and are proud of our continued success, quality service and outstanding reputation we have built.
Our business has expanded from a single house, to employing in excess of 170 members of staff, operating out of four offices in London, Beckenham, Colchester and Brighton.
Our success is built upon the trust of our Clients, upon long-term working relationships and the certainty of repeat business. We prioritise the quality of our service delivery over short term commercial gains; we do “whatever it takes” for each and every job and we aspire to be the best in everything we do.
Ours is a modernising business in an industry which demands this. We are a diverse team, guided by experience, leading and investing in young people, committed to developing the careers of all who work for us.
We believe in sharing our knowledge and experience with our peers and clients to the benefit of both ourselves and the industry as a whole.
It is this ethos on which we have built a successful, trusted and respected company and on which we will continue to build for the years to come.
