About Us:

We are a new business that has recently started within the Swansea area. After working in the building industry for over 35 years, always working on site I have made a commitment to starting up my own company.



I started work as a decorator at the age of 15 years old, after 4 years I decided to attend college to learn plastering & spent the next 4 years as a professional plasterer. As a plasterer I was following on from the bricklayer so I decided to return to building school & mastered the trade as a bricklayer. After spending the following 4 years as a on site bricklayer I progressed onto a working foreman with an underpinning company of which I picked up carpentry, damp proofing, etc.
