Meet the Team

 James Pack, Company Director
James Pack, Company Director

I started work as a stonemason when I left school in 1985. I completed my apprenticeship with Ernest Ireland Construction and the City of Bath College and finished with an Advanced Craft Certificate in Masonry.

Initially I worked with lots of local firms gaining experience, and then when the economic climate changed I worked across the North of England and the South East which enabled me to work with different materials and learn different practises. I have worked on many prestigious projects including Tower Bridge and Windsor Castle where I was involved in making the cases for the crown jewels as well as other big projects in London.

My love of my home town was always going to bring me back, so when the climate allowed I came back and have been involved in many projects that are familiar in the local area: numerous projects on the Royal Crescent, new builds on Bartlett Street in Bath and I was part of the team that restored St. Catherine’s Court on the outskirts of Bath. I have also been involved in many extension projects in and around the Bath area.

After many years in banker shops and then fixing gangs, things evolved into me running a business and I started up a masonry company with a partner which ran for 7 years. Eventually my circumstance changed and I set up Pack Masonry Ltd in 2014.
