Company partner Keith began working in the stonemasonry field in 1978, helping out the local stonemason in his work. In 1982 Keith moved to a full apprenticeship, working on the restoration of the Royal Pavilion, Brighton, and then continued to work on restoration and conservation projects throughout the region. A specialist in fine carving and hand cut lettering, Keith's skills and experience really show in the beautiful work he produces, and his knowledge of local and regional historical buildings is second to none.
The second part of this stonemasonry partnership, Wesley's experience stretches back to 1993 when he first began working with Keith. Whilst undertaking a block release apprenticeship in 1994, Wesley's skills really shone through, achieving himself the Best Apprentice award, bronze and silver medals for a SkillBuild competition, finalist status in the Youth Skill Olympics and of course, an NVQ in stonemasonry. Specialising in architectural masonry and on site fixing, Wesley demonstrates a keen eye for detail and a commitment to great results.
Mark first met Wesley and Keith in 2000. He followed Wesley's example and took the block release course at Weymouth College, finishing with an NVQ Level 3. Since 2003 Mark has worked closely with Wesley and Keith and become a highly skilled mason, both in production on the banker and out on site fixing. Mark is the registered First Aider and will often be in charge of the day to day running of larger sites.
