Loaring Development Ltd has grown over the years since it’s creation in March 2011. Read about the team and the director Phil below.
Who We Are
Phil Loaring set up Loaring Development Ltd in March of 2011. Since then the business has grown from a small business to one that now employs 9 full time staff. Meet the team below.
Loaring Development Ltd has a large portfolio of successful projects including new builds, conversions, refurbishments, insurance jobs and is continually growing, see the building project portfolio page for examples of Loaring Development’s work. Phil tends to look over the private work mainly which is what he enjoys. He is keen to ensure all his workforce are trained correctly and have the adequate qualifications and certification; including first aid training, working at height, asbestos and health & safety training.
Director and Master builder.
Phil started off as a bricklayer once he left school, training on the job and through college for the first 5 years. After 5 years gaining experience and qualifications Phil changed his job role and joined a new company where he was Site Supervisor for 6 years, overseeing projects and ensuring health and safety standards were met by his workforce while on site.
In his personal time Phil likes to follow his beloved Chelsea FC, and enjoys watching his son playing football and his daughter riding her pony.
- Project Management
Shane joined Loaring Development in 2015, once the company had started gaining large projects and being involved with insurance claims. Shane previously worked as a self-employed plasterer, so has much experience in the building trade. He is Phil’s right hand man and works closely with Gemma throughout all the insurance claims.
Shane’s main role is being in charge of all our Insurance job claims, which means he goes out to policyholders addresses to assess the damage and validity of the claims that we have been assigned.
He does a risk assessment while at the claim address so all our works are completed in line with our Health and Safety policies, whilst taking photos of any damage to pass to our insurance company.
Shane builds a scope of works, including the cost on each job, which can be very technical. This enables insurance companies to get an idea of what the cost of the works will be for us to make everything right again for the policy holder.
In his spare time Shane enjoys playing golf…. We don’t actually know if he’s any good…

Clare has the extremely important job of making sure our suppliers are paid on time as well as staff and managing the finances and accounts. She ensures the company’s finances are in order, reconciling all accounts within the company, budgeting each month to run in line with company financial predictions and managing business liabilities to HMRC.
Clare has a good eye for detail and has brought with her many years of book-keeping and computer skills to the company which helps her deal with the day to day tasks efficiently. Clare manages our payroll and ensures that timesheets are collected every month, so it runs a little more smoothly and our employees are paid correctly without any queries. She is keen to do her best and is always finding ways to improve the running of payroll within the company.
In her spare time Clare enjoys salsa dancing, and socialising with her friends at the weekend.
Gem is our office manager who started with Loaring Development in July 2019 and has a wealth of past experience in admin and office work. She has a great telephone manner with suppliers and clients alike and also accurate computer skills which help during Loaring’s extra busy periods. She keeps the office running smoothly, working towards bigger and brighter things, and tries to make improvements to help the office and company run more efficiently with smarter ways of working.
She’s is responsible for Loaring’s public image after helping Phil to rebrand the Loaring logo and new website, and creating more marketing opportunities for the company, but her main responsibility is for the administration of our building projects, private and insurance works, she is the first point of contact for all insurance job customers, and is responsible for arranging the pre-site visits for Shane visiting insurance jobs.
She likes to keep up to date on works by making constant communication Phil and Shane, and helps Clare with invoicing and filing.
Nick joined Loaring in 2011 when Phil first started the company, so is one of the original and longest serving members of staff along with Phil.
Nick has a wealth of knowledge in the building trade, and can undertake most work thrown his way with no worry. Nick shows great tutorship for any new young apprentices or labourers we have on board and will always offer an extra hand on other jobs if his project has finished early.
Nick shows good work ethic and will always put in the hours to get a job done.
