You can find below some information about my qualifications and find out how I got started in Kitchen and Bathroom installations:
Main Qualifications:- City & Guilds in plastering | City & Guilds in carpentry | Part P Electrical
Personal Profile: Stuart Grayling
I have around 35 years experience in the building industry, having started as a plastering apprentice. Plastering is a very useful skill and I quickly became good at producing a superior job and finish. I picked up new skills all the time. As my skills improved I moved on to more complex projects such as carpentry and general building, decorating and plumbing. This enabled me to tackle all aspects of bathroom and kitchen installations.
I also worked in the TV industry for many years making furniture and refurbishing studios. This involved designing and making items of bespoke furniture from scratch using timber, metal and glass. Based in a central London workshop, I continued making furniture for the company and also undertook commissions for individuals.
Having built up enough experience and skills to begin full bathroom and kitchen installations for a wide range of customers, I started my own company and have been doing bathroom and kitchen installations for the past 14 years.
