My History

I was born in St. Mawes, Cornwall. I left school at 15 because I had the chance of an apprenticeship in carpentry & joinery, I did 4 years at college on day release I acquired passes in City & Guilds of London institute in Carpentry & Joinery Craft, Advanced Craft, A.I.B.I.C.C, Construction Technicians Certificate and a full Technological Certificate in Building Crafts in Principals of Construction, Building Science, Building Calculations & Craft Foremanship Studies.

I am confident conversing with Architects, Structural Engineers and Quality Surveyors and I will always try to steer all of those professions to my way of thinking to eliminate costly and impractical designs. I have been a member of the FMB for 10 years which has government endorsed standards in the TRUST MARK SCHEME.

We are also warranted builders and can provide insurance cover with the masterbond warranty for anything that we build if that’s your requirement.

We are also members of the CITB and have trained employees in Construction Skills and Health and Safety.

We have built a public building and we specialise in New Builds, Renovations, Conversions and Extensions.

I have been working in construction for 43 years of which 6 was employed and the rest are self employed. I started my own company 15 years ago and now employ 7 employees who are talented, hard working men. I use my own name for the company, not St. Mawes builders or A.B.C builders, and if I do a bad job my name is on it.

I do 90% of my work mainly in a 15 mile radius mainly in St. Mawes. I am going nowhere and I can’t hide. I will always be here on the end of a phone to call on to put anything right if that should occur.

I have strong traditional values incorporating and constantly evaluating new methods, materials and new technology, using green and sustainable materials, solar energy moving towards a self sufficient future.

I believe in producing the best possible job and getting it right first time this will conflict against speed but drying out time is very important to minimise shrinkage and getting a good finish.

A building with a good finish will look good forever and that’s the most important thing!
