Our history

Charles Alexander Ltd was established in 2002. Over the last ten years it has grown into one of London’s leading building and refurbishment companies.

After graduation, Henry Shiffner, the company’s founder, worked for three years in the dynamic exhibition industry, followed by a further three years as a project manager for a leading London-based interior designer. It was during this period that Henry developed a fascination in the practicality of building, combined with considered design. This led him to set up Charles Alexander Ltd.

The company’s diligence and attention to detail meant the scale of projects grew rapidly. Bathroom and kitchen fit-outs led to loft conversions, extensions and full residential refurbishments, as well as more commercial building projects.

Today a core team of management, expert tradesmen and site foreman oversee the detail of each project. Our emphasis on great design and clear communication ensures each scheme is completed to the highest quality finish.
