    At this time of year we start to think of the 'thread of the year' awards...

    All we need now is, ahem, Mark Jackson from GEO BUILD, to sign up under some pseudonym to make counter accusations and/or personal threats a la the 'Atlas' thread of last year and we'll have a full house.

    Keep up the good work.

    P.S. Mark Jackson from GEO BUILD

    One sincerely hopes that Mark Jackson from GEO BUILD does indeed find this corner of the intertubes and decides to make some account of himself.

    Is that something that you might consider, Mark Jackson from GEO BUILD?

    Oh that turned proper nasty - I'm stuck with a tippety-tap screen at the moment so am not really 'up' for massive missives, or linkage etc, but @tek-monkey would no doubt enjoy furnishing with detail.

    Yes, sorry about that - have now worked out how to do the whole 'link' thing with the tipetty-tappety thingy-ma-jiggy.

    We should definitely keep this thread dedicated to GEOBUILD.

    And specifically to Mark Jackson from GEOBUILD.

    Still waiting for Mark Jackson from GEOBUILD to get all lairy all over this thread...

    So Geo Building Services Ltd was struck off on 12 July 2016 and his latest company Geo Build Stafford Ltd was incorporated on 16 November 2017 https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/11067393 with a significant gap between the two. But there is also Geo Build Ltd which was incorporated 10 April 2014 and still seems to be an active company https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/08989298

    Yes Mark Jackson from Geo Build does appear to change the name of the company every few years.


    At the very least he should be done for false representation under the trades description act.
    On his website he describes himself as "Honest" and "Reliable"

    He is neither.

    An example of really bad project management is this (in addition to the other catalogue of disasters)

    After waiting weeks for a certain job to be done, we were then informed that the said person could only work weekends.

    So on a Sunday morning at 8.00am guy turns up to do the work only to find that the materials required for him to do the job are not there.

    He asked where the stuff was? He then phoned Mark Jackson from Geo BUILD who said that we, the customer should have ordered the materials.

    We pointed out that we had paid Mark Jackson from Geo BUILD to project manage the job, and we had paid for materials in advance and anyway, how would we know what to order as we are not builders?

    He went ballistic with Mark and said he'd never do a job for him again.

    So he walked off site at 8.20am which left us with another job unfinished.

    We've had a weekend of various building professionals round trying to put right the dreadful work that Mark Jackson from Geo Build did.

    One builder looked at the brickwork of the garden room and said "it's shocking, if my bricklayers had left a job like that, I'd sack them"

    The roofing/tiles hadn't been fitted correctly. Some were upside down and back to front and it hadn't been pointed correctly.


    As was pointed out by one guy trying to put it right
    '" It's unbelievable that they would leave it like this when it wouldn't have taken much longer to actually do it correctly"

    Hi Carole it sounds like you are not the only one to suffer at the hands of this unprofessional company, have you thought of reporting this to BBC Rogue Traders? They have an online form which you could complete and they may investigate if it appears there are other complaints against the same company. They are always particularly keen to hear about individuals who repeatedly dissolve one company then set up another with slight name variations to avoid their legal obligations.

    Mark Jackson from Geo BUILD once copied in my husband by mistake the work schedule.

    They do indeed have at least 8 jobs going at the same time.


    One day after promise after promise after promise that work would continue a GEO BUILD truck appeared on the drive.

    I went out and said "this is a surprise, what are you doing today"

    Them "no we're not stopping, just dumping some stuff in your skip"

    Me...... "No, I don't think so, I've not seen you for two weeks, I'm not having you dumping others people's rubbish in my skip"

    They did eventually stop dumping stuff from other people's jobs in our skip when we asked them to but afterwards we spent a considerable time sweeping a huge amount of broken glass up from our drive.

    They have no concern about people's feelings or property.

    Hi Carole, I've spent the weekend talking to six people who have had and are having poor work done by Mark Jackson of Geo build I can't believe he's still in business! I've been on his website and contacted rated people, I suggest you do the same!

    This is indeed turning into another Atlas, I hope things get sorted in some way.

    What good is rated people who Mark Jackson of Geo build advertises on his website with five star reviews. Apparently you can only rate his work if you go through rated people to book him!
