Your restoration project is our passion
After leaving school in 1986 I applied for and was successful in securing an apprenticeship with a local brickwork company. I was taught, from the bottom upwards, the skills and methods used and in the period from 1987-1990 I attended Waltham Forest College on weekly day release to obtain a recognised qualification in brickwork. Upon completion of a three year study I received 2 Distinctions and 1 Credit at City and Guilds Standard, in Brickwork Theory, Technical Drawing and Practical Methods.
I found standard brickwork unchallenging and shortly after passing my City and Guilds I changed fields and started working in the building restoration area, I soon became fascinated with the different types of methods used and my base grounding in brickwork proved to be advantageous.
In the year 2000 I decided to found Finelay Construction and we have completed numerous projects in the building restoration field since.
I still find this field of work hugely fascinating and rewarding when seeing a project through from beginning to end and I believe that this passion has kept my company operating through the recent times that unfortunately we have all been forced to endure.
