Meet The Team
By combining our specialist skills, the individuals at Blueridge Flooring come together to achieve exceptional results.
PETER BONSALLAn engineer by trade, Peter Bonsall began his career working for a Canadian mill in the 1990s, contracting wood floors in the UK into Wickes and Screwfix. Peter’s passion was always in timber’s aesthetic potential and this led Peter to seek out designers who shared his enthusiasm for higher specification solutions, ultimately setting up his own workshop to fill the gap in the market. 20 years later, Blueridge has become one of the UK’s most respected producers of bespoke hardwood flooring and joinery.
PAMELA BONSALLPassionate about design, Pamela Bonsall is our client services director, translating client briefs into breath-taking realities. Pamela leads our team of craftsmen and installers as the creative force in the business, serving as the key client contact as a project comes to life. Pamela is a lifelong equestrian, a daughter of deepest Shropshire and a mother of two.
VICKI THOMPSONWith a background in estimating for several UK main contractors, Vicki Thompson’s commercial knowledge is invaluable in leading our marketing strategy. She likes large dogs and long, blustery walks in the Shropshire countryside.
ANDY BODENWith many years’ previous experience of running his own building services business and managing a shop-fitting operation, Andy Boden joined us as operations manager in June 2014, bringing valuable planning and project management expertise. As well as making client dreams a reality, Andy is also a heavy metal enthusiast and a keen twitcher. But not at the same time.
Phil Evans has many strings to his bow and heads up our financial strategy, keeping us all in check. Phil enjoys travel and a good cuppa.
A NOTE ABOUT OUR INSTALLERS
To ensure perfect delivery on every project, we run teams of highly trained site installers, all of whom are local to us and take great pride in representing the company across the UK and Europe. Our teams follow high standards, running full pre-installation checklists, site readiness surveys and completion certificates, completing all QC and H&S paperwork. All of our site staff have CSCS cards and we do not employ on a contract basis. We are also investing in the next generation of artisans, with each of our lead fitters responsible for an apprentice on their team. We support external specialist training too – most recently at a sanding and sealing course with a well known finishing supplier.
