Tony Peech

Tony has been working with Thomas Interiors since 2012, when he joined the Company as an Estimator. With an incredible eye for detail, coupled with his consistent ability to produce high standard, quality tender submissions, Tony was the natural candidate to be named our Lead Estimator in 2019.

Coming from a shopfitting background and with extensive joinery experience, Tony has the unique ability to visualise a project in relation to how the job is to be built, by simply studying a scope of works at the tender stage. It is with this unique perspective that Tony is able to quantify our quotations and ensure that our clients can be assured that our tender submissions are designed with buildability in mind and ensure that there are no hidden surprises as the job becomes live and budgets are approved.

Tony works closely with our Pre-Construction Director, to distribute all tender enquiries to our team of experienced Estimators and to manage workloads, to ensure that our tender submissions are handed back to our clients on time and to the highest standard.
