How Danford, Brewer & Ives Work For You

We are contactable, punctual and honest. We keep our customers informed and work to agreed programmes with starting and completion dates for any building work that we undertake. As a building company we are very aware of Health & Safety dangers within our industry. We work with qualified consultants, and our staff are kept up to date with any changes made to regulations, and they are trained to high standards of safety within the workplace. This allows us to offer the excellent service that we provide, and is in the best interest of our customers, ourselves and the general public.

Apart from the constantly changing regulations, new methods and products become available, and as a company we like to keep up with these changes by constantly checking and upgrading so that we can offer the very best methods and products to you, our customers. There are some fantastic ideas and improvements to the building trade being thought of out there (and a few not so good ones), but most ideas are worth a look, and we enjoy and encourage all of our staff to keep up to date with these changes. They apply the best methods available and adapt their working practices to suit each individual job as they work on traditional and often listed buildings.

Spring 2014

It's spring - let's hope it brings some sunshine!

A lot has been going on at Danford, Brewer & Ives since the start of the New Year.

Some of us have been down to the Triton Head Office in Dartford to attend training courses recently. Between them, they completed courses in:
Isola Cavity Drain Systems, Triton Waterproofing - The Use, Application and Installation.
Triton Chemical Damp Proofing, Timber Preservation and Associated Products - The Use, Handling, Application, Health and Safety, PPE, and COSHH.

A bit further north, we have been very busy with damp proofing and basement works, as well as a flurry of reroofing jobs since the storms at the beginning of the year.
The guys have also found themselves in South Yorkshire, Merseyside, Lancashire, and Derbyshire carrying out a variety of building works for a nationwide shopfitting firm, including structural alterations, concreting, paving, access ramps, and making changes to shop fronts.

New recruits and changes of personnel:
We have said goodbye to Gilly, Owen, Michael and Yvonne, who have moved on to pastures new, and we wish them all the best for the future.
Say hello to our new recruits; Audrey Wood - Administrator and book keeper, Mike Gilman - previously a construction tutor at Harrogate College, now working for us both on site and in the office, Jimbob Hinchliffe and Karl Brown - experienced plasterers who will be carrying out more of our damp proofing works, and Lee James - builder and ground worker. Dan Ash has started this week as an office apprentice, to help in our increasingly busy office, and will attend college to further his development in Business Admin.
