Karolina values, above all, order, maybe apart from spreadsheets. Or colour coding. Let’s settle on colour coding in the spreadsheets.
Although Karolina majored in humanities, she has worked in construction industry for the past 4 years while gaining experience in procurement, administration, market research, accounting, managing different types of IT and marketing projects. Besides all she is extremely creative, productive, and the best addition to our team we could ask for!

Originally from Ukraine, Andrew has over 25 years of construction experience and is our most seasoned foreman.

With over 15 years’ of experience, Denis knows every part listed in his many plumbing catalogues lying around his van. It has been confirmed by many pop quizzes the site crew have subjected him to over the years. We have never come across as dedicated and passionate a person about pluming as Deniss. He immediately sees the layout of the pipes in one’s house by looking at the water basin, as if he had an X-ray apparatus in his eyes.
When off duty, he is a quiet family guy enjoying his country life in Surrey.
