Failed Projects

Here you will learn about those projects that Keith Pickstock will not have told you about when trying to gain your confidence, your business and most importantly, your money.


Each of the owners of the projects shown here would be delighted to speak to you and tell you about their experiences of contracting with Keith Pickstock - just fill out the form on the Contact page and they will contact you directly.

October 2013 - SW London


Keith Pickstock started work on this site in the summer of 2013 and was fired in the first half of October 2013.


We are awaiting further details of this project.

July 2013 - SW London


Keith Pickstock started work on this site at the end of June 2012, and was fired at the start of July 2013 after he took his men off site demanding that the contract be ignored and that he be paid on a day rate until completion of second fix (he had already received virtually all monies due to him, having exaggerated his progress and understated what was left to do).


This image shows the state this site was left in - many weeks away even from first fix - when Keith Pickstock was fired from this project ... That's rubbish all down the centre, which prevents anyone from working and took a week to clear.


Wondering what the red arrow is indicating? That's the wooden support that is holding up the scafolding platform providing access to the site... and the yellow supports were only put there when he was ordered to.  LBHF Building Control were about to close this site down - why don't you ring them to confirm this? Full details can be found on their site

May 2013 - NW London


Keith Pickstock started work on this site, a basement project to first fix, in September 2012.  He subsequently walked off site demanding unjustified extra payments and the owners took control in May 2013.


Further details will be added in due course as we receive them.

March 2013 - NW London


May 2012  - March 2013  (contract to first fix only)


The images show the state this site was left in after Keith Pickstock took his men off site for a second time - and disappeared.  In particular you should note that the delta membrane was not properly fitted, the insulation and screed had not been laid, and, again, the huge amount of rubbish left on this site.


Keith Pickstock had previously taken the workers off site in order to extract significantly more money from the owner than both his and the owner's quantity surveyors had agreed was owed for extras.  The owner only reluctantly agreed to this extra demand due to the prohibitive cost of getting a reputable builder to take over the site at this stage - a fact that Keith Pickstock would appear to exploit to the full.  


A payment plan was then put in place with the final payment not due until after the project was completed, but even then Keith Pickstock got significantly behind schedule and tried to demand the final payment before the project was completed - in clear breach of the agreement. The owner was willing to negotiate but Keith Pickstock just disappeared - leaving behind what you see in the images.
