My first experience of plumbing was at the age of 14 when I did my two weeks work experience from school at a local plumbing company in my home town. After the two weeks I had then decided what I wanted to do when I left school at the age of 16. With my reference and my two weeks experience I easily found a four-year apprenticeship working for a large plumbing and renovation company.
After the four-year apprenticeship I had passed my advanced plumbing and gas engineering city and guilds. I then carried on doing electrical engineering then a diploma in site management and became a member of the chartered institute of building.
After six years I wanted to experience and learn more skills so I decided to take my tools to work and explore Europe. I manage to find work in most western European counties and learnt different ways of plumbing and renovation plus also the different materials used.
After working around Europe, I then tried my skills in Australia, America and even Santiago Chile.
After three years of travelling and working around the world I settled In York and started my Plumbing and gas engineering business. My business was doing very well but after three years I decided I needed a new experience. With my French wife we decided in 2006 to move to Antibes and Start a plumbing company. I quickly realized there was a need for a experienced Plumber and bathroom fitter. After three months of doing all the work myself I then started to build my team who are able to match my high standard of work. Every year I meet more tradesmen, but only found a small amount who can carry out high standard of work. Now after twelve years I have a team of highly skilled tradesmen who are very reliable trust worthy and can offer good competitive rates.
We have worked together for nearly ten years now and my large number of clients based on the Riviera phone me for any work they require to be done properly the first time. If I do not have somebody in my team who can carry this work out I will usually know a company who I have used before who can carry out the work to the high standard my clients expect.
We specialise in designing and building bathrooms, designing and installing air conditioning, heat pumps. Carrying out all plumbing and drainage work to new builds plus complete renovation projects.
