Professionalism and Training

We recognise that our success is only as good as the people that work for us. All our tradesmen are experienced professionals who can meet the creative challenge of even the most meticulous of jobs. And when additional specialist skills are required, we draw on our well-established list of experienced, highly skilled sub-contractors, ensuring that everyone on site echoes the quality and professionalism that is synonymous with the Stonewood name.

Achieving exceptional professionalism in building is about attaining the right skills and honing them with experience and training. This is why our training philosophy allows all our employees to continually build their knowledge and abilities. This approach has helped to produce a highly skilled team that takes great pride in what they do.

As a member of the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB), we provide many opportunities and provide a mix of off-site and in-house training for all our employees through NVQ and other schemes. We also work to develop the skills of apprentices through collaborations with local colleges to help younger people move into skilled work and have won industry awards for this commitment to education.

We particularly invest in our Site Managers who play a crucial connecting role between our clients and the project delivery. We ensure they are all trained on the (CITB) Site Managers Training Scheme, are experienced in health and safety, and are able to lead our approach to environmental responsibility.

We don’t just rely on practical skills though – we ensure all our employees understand the importance of developing great client relationships and delivering on the values of quality, professionalism and service that underpins the business.
