Milestones....25 years service Gary & Steve...
Our sectors and subjects of work are consistently challenging and demand innovation and dedication to produce the successes we are known for. We could not achieve the accolades and repeat business we have without the direct support, loyalty and abilities of our long serving employees.
It is to our benefit that shortly before New Year we celebrated 25years of service with our Gary Earl (Site Manager) and Steve Francis (Senior Estimator). Neither Gary nor Steve is known as a self publicist and they barely agreed to photographs and handshakes. Our Managing Director Nick Wilson attempted a resume of their achievements in 20 minutes; needless to say he barely scratched the surface.
Gary has continually stepped up to all challenges that have been presented to him over the years and is known for both a wry sense of humour but above all a willingness to adapt, take on problems and to bring solutions. Gary would not shine a light on his technical achievements; however he is responsible for many of our successful projects including one of the country’s largest most complex hydraulic lime mortar conservation projects completed, sometimes in challenging circumstances at Pentonville prison.
Steve has been the backbone of our estimating team since starting out originally with a branch of Stonewest based in Cheltenham. Steve is well known for his resolute attitude (you will not change his opinion with ease) and his ability to be precise in both his work and his actions. It has been known for the entire company to check their clocks and watches by Steve. The successes we have had in the tendering of work are in great amount due to Steve and his absolute intention to do a job properly.
Sincerely, Gary, Steve, from all at Stonewest, thank you for all your graft over so many years. You are both very much appreciated by us all.
