Friendly and enthusiastic he’s worked on many projects, including a series of repairs for the National Trust and for other local businesses as well as in family homes.
Upholding high standards of professional practice, responsibility, ethics, workmanship and morality, Duncan decided to resign from the Dry Stone Walling Association (http://www.dswa.org.uk) when they failed to adhere to their own rules when operating LANTRA tests that require fair and impartial standards that apply equally to all. These examinations are always tough and should be equally so for everyone, not maintaining these standards in all cases undermines the hard work and high standards of the majority of professional candidates and despite me raising these points to the association I received an inadequate response which I felt was morally wrong.
He is ConstructionLine registered and SSIP (Safety Schemes in Procurement) accredited to demonstrate he's operating safely and complying with legislation. Through this scheme, backed by the HSE, Duncan can demonstrate efficient, time and cost saving processes and best practices. These quality marks are widely recognised in both public and private sector organisations, giving clients confidence they are dealing with a credible contractor.
Duncan is fully insured as a legitimate contractor in his own right but when work demands has now established working relationships which give him the ability to call upon further skilled resource. By using handpicked bonafide sub-contractors he can ensure that
they provide work at skill levels that align to his own exacting standards.
He also has experience in providing training in this art.
Duncan would be very pleased to visit you to prepare a free competitive quote for new builds, repairs or training.
Not your 'run of the mill' builder.
Duncan had the courage to let go of who he was and become who he might be!
How do we do it? When can it be done?
What are the benefits for me, our wildlife and for our heritage?
