We believe that our customers deserve better.

At Butler Harwell, we are driven by a desire to deliver smart homes and smart buildings that we would want to live and work in ourselves. To this end we have assembled a team of highly experienced industry professionals with a diverse set of skills and backgrounds, as well as affiliating with energy-efficiency leaders Huf Haus to ensure that our projects deliver far more than just a technological upgrade to your home or commercial building.

At Butler Harwell, family is everything

With many of our team raising young families, we wanted to build a company that would allow us to support our kids. We aim to take this familial approach to our client relationships, taking a highly personal, hands-on approach so that our customers feel they are part of the Butler Harwell family, rather than simply dealing with yet another anonymous corporate contractor.

After falling short in his attempt to become a professional cricketer, Damien joined Sky in 1999 as a systems installer, before working his way up through various management roles within the company over the next 13 years. Setting out on his own as an installer, he initially specialised in TV systems before branching out into other areas including home cinema, security system, high end audio and garden speaker installations.

He has worked for several prestigious clients over the years – including pop stars, premier league footballers and other A-listers – as well as bespoke projects such as the conference facilities at The Shard. Having met Tom through mutual contacts, Damian made the decision to join Butler Harwell and head up the project management and engineering side of the business.
