Established in 2012 by Laurence Wrenn and Edward Stace, our company was born out of a vision to redefine the standards of service delivery in the construction and maintenance sectors.

We recognised a gap in the market – a need for streamlined management and a focus on client satisfaction amidst the complexities of construction projects. Thus, we set out to create a company that embodies efficiency, innovation, and integrity in every aspect of our operations.

With over 40 years of combined industry experience, our founding directors bring a wealth of expertise and a hands-on approach to every project we undertake. As a primary contractor, Metropolis Projects provides a comprehensive end-to-end service delivering excellence in all aspects of the construction and ongoing maintenance of your premises.

Our Mission

At Metropolis Projects Limited, our mission is simple yet profound: to provide a dynamic, proactive, and practical service that surpasses the expectations of our clients.

Our Values

At the heart of Metropolis Projects Limited lies a set of core values that guide our every decision and action. We believe in transparency, integrity, and accountability – values that form the foundation of our client relationships. We prioritise open communication between your point of contract and our project lead, to ensure easy collaboration and project delivery. We have a genuine passion for what we do, ensuring that our clients feel supported and valued at every stage of their project journey.

Our Expertise

Over the years, we have proudly served clients across a diverse range of industry sectors, including residential property, the retail sector, healthcare, education, office, and utility services. Our portfolio boasts a myriad of successful projects, each showcasing our ability to adapt, innovate, and deliver results that exceed expectations.

From large-scale developments to intricate refurbishments, we approach every challenge with enthusiasm and a commitment to quality craftsmanship. In fact we are often the contractor that will take on the projects that others may shy away from, simply because we thrive on new challenges that call upon our depth of expertise to provide a successful solution.

Company Directors

Laurence Wrenn
Laurence WrennCommercial Director
Laurence has been involved in the industry for all of his adult life, having joined a medium sized Principal Contractor as a Trainee Quantity Surveyor straight from school. He was quickly promoted through the ranks to Senior Quantity Surveyor whilst also studying to complete his HNC Building & Surveying and BSc in Quantity Surveying qualifications.

Following a sabbatical in 2005, Laurence was installed as a Senior Commercial Manager and was responsible for the contract administration, financial management and client liaison of several projects at any one time.

Along with Eddie Stace, Laurence co-founded Metropolis Projects in 2012 and together they have organically built a prestigious and trustworthy client base to collaborate with. Having worked in the high-end residential, educational, retail, arts and healthcare sectors, Laurence has the broad range of knowledge and experience required to lead the team on most projects.

Outside of work, Laurence is kept busy in a number of volunteer roles, mainly centred around his 3 sons and their array of sporting activities. He is a coach for Hendon Youth FC and Chairperson for Parnells Youth GAA Club. He is also an Arsenal season ticket holder and Kerry GAA fan – Up the Kingdom!

Eddie Stace
Eddie Stace Construction Director
Eddie began work as an Aeroplane Technician working for Boeing on various contracts for over 10 years. Making the switch to Construction in the 90’s, Eddie was a Contracts Manager for a leading Glazing and Curtain Walling Contractor before joining a Main Contractor in 2000 and mainly working on Healthcare, Education and Retail projects.

Eddie’s management style is the definition of ‘hands-on’ personified. If there is an issue on site, then Eddie will see this as a challenge and will find a way to overcome it.

Eddie founded the company along with Laurence Wrenn and takes great pride in the projects he carries out and in being able to provide a service that benefits others. His no-nonsense approach is valued by our clients who know they can rely on him to find the most cost-effective solutions without compromising on quality.

When he is not getting his hands dirty, Eddie likes to attend music festivals and travel around Europe in his camper van. He is also a proud Grandad, which may have softened him a little over the years!
