Behind every wall, every door and every staircase there’s a practised worker using their skillset to safely build our environment – and they’re probably a perfectionist.
Craftsmanship is a perfectionist’s middle name. They’re no stranger to a challenge and embrace any environment– nothing knocks them off their game.
Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence."
- Vince Lombardi
Bricklayers lay bricks, pre-cut stone and concrete blocks in mortar. They construct, extend and repair domestic and commercial buildings, and other structures such as foundations, walls, chimneys or decorative masonry work. Bricklaying offers a real sense of achievement. At the end of a project, you’ll see the results and be able to say, ‘I built that’.
Carpentry is one of the oldest construction trades and is in high demand. Carpenters use natural materials (wood/timber) to install wooden fixtures and fittings. As a carpenter you could be installing doors, floors and furniture in new builds, renovating or refitting existing structures, building sets for film and theatre companies and much more.
