Alex Lavrentiev has over 18 years of experience working in plumbing and gas engineering with a wide circle of international clients - fixing, maintaining and installing heating systems for luxury homes, and specialising in devising and constructing individual systems.

Each home and client has particular specifications, requiring a unique design and engineering approach to ensure complete harmony with the space, and full expression of the client's needs and vision. Nothing is more individual than the homes we live in, and this extends to all aspects of the interiors and the services that underpin them.

Alex prides himself on the highest technical standards, both in design and execution, bringing an exactitude and finish to each of the home services his team provides, which has often led to client relationships spanning several decades, even across generations. His dedication to his craft is matched only by this personal touch; the warmth and respect that he brings to each home, which, together with his technical quality and expertise, forms the basis of the long-term trust that his clients place in his work.
