Our Story

My names Dwayne Graham, my early career was working in the City of London working for various stockbrokerages and financial services platforms. To be frank I just got tired of marching over London Bridge like a worker drone. I still trade and invest in the markets.That will never leave me as I have an appetite for risk and a sucker for free money.


I started dabbling with painting and decorating back in 2013 just at home making a mess, sloppy but found it quiet therapeutic. I would paint family members houses here and there over the years. Some how I developed a real passion for this new hobby of mine. 


Fast forward to 2016 I decided to break into the industry applying for jobs as a painter and working through agencies. I lost count of the amount of times I got sacked in the early days. I found out very quickly that theres a lot more to just slapping the paint on the walls. Theres levels to this, you got the Sunday league and theres the premiership.


I practiced my finishing and got better but was still quite slow. After about 6 months I no longer was getting sacked anymore so I took that as I must be an  average painter now. I choose to still work through the agencies as I wanted to gain experience working in all environments. Domestic, Commercial, New builds, Theatres, Schools, Hospitals, Retail, Interior and Exterior. 


I was advised I should learn snagging then I would know what is acceptable and what is not at the highest levels. I did snagging at the Embassy Gardens in Vauxhall and the Shard Apartments in London Bridge to name a few. All part of my continued development.


When it got to the point companies were trying to take me from the agencies I now knew I was above average.


Over the years working with different companies who specialised in different aspects of painting and decorating. Seeing my work first hand wow the architects and winning the company more 7 figure contracts. I knew I had arrived now.
I left Singapore January 2020 and the pandemic came, we all know how that went. thats when i decided to go it alone.

Surprisingly my client base grew quicker than I anticipated and also the size of the jobs all just from referrals. 


I started Doctor Build LTD and underestimated all the extra additional responsibilities of running a LTD company and working on the projects myself and decided to go back to just being a sole trader.


Lessons have been learned and due to gaining more commercial clients, and rapid expansion we are now Doctor Build Group LTD!

The Vision & Mission

Having personally saved so many site and project managers over the years and companies who over promise and under deliver, personally they should be politicians! 


The goal is to continually grow and deliver an outstanding service from start to finish, creating long lasting beautiful spaces for our clients.


To constantly challenge ourselves to improve and maintain the highest standards within the industry.


We believe in exceeding all expectations from the initial consultation to the final clean up. Our clients are not just another project to get out the way and move on. 


We generally care and take extreme pride in all our work. There have been times where the client is happy but our eagle eyes see something that should be better; we still rectify it.


This is instilled in our company culture and to maintain this 80% of future tradespeople will only come through as apprentices.
