Downing Street, Prince Abdul & Harrods - Aude Artisans

James Gordon Roe is a fully qualified and time-served builder and carpenter.


After a five year apprenticeship, James was employed in an Antique Shop in the UK for two years as restorer and cabinet-maker.


From there James worked on the restoration and maintenance of listed and million pound properties, including No. 10 Downing Street, for three years.  This was followed by two years in Saudi Arabia, where Prince Abdul Aziz employed James as manager and building foreman, in his major property maintenance and building material business.


On his return to the UK, James worked on many projects as a self-employed shop fitter and designer.  These were mainly in London and the Home Counties and included the Trocadero (Sega World), Harrods, BHS & Pizza Land restaurants.  James was also involved in the building of stands for major international exhibitions, including the London Southampton & Hamburg Boat Shows.

In 1999 James set up Aude Artisans - a professional building renovation, conversion, gardening & property maintenance business in The Aude region of France.
