Hartley and Son recently completed the refurbishment of the Latimer Minster rectory. The Buckinghamshire project, in excess of £200K, was completed on time despite many technical difficulties. Working with a local Architect, the high standard of finish has led to the company being asked to tender for more work in the Gerrards Cross area.
The project also provided an excelent opportunity to continue our work with the Lost Boys Network. From the first day to the very last we took on two apprentices, Stewart and Gary, and gave them hands-on experience of the whole project, from demolition right through to brick-laying, carpentry, electrical installation, and decorating. Working with Slough Jobcentre Plus, Stewart and Gary proved their value to the site and the client, daily cycling 10miles each way from the station to get to and from work. They both received regular coaching and feedback from the Site Manager, and were given excellent references at the completion of the project.
Stewart is now working for a construction company in the south and Gary working full-time in Maidenhead.
