Qualified Wall Tie installers of course!

15 October 2009

When you have your work carried out by us you can be assured it is done by qualified wall tie installers.

Five of Brick-Tie’s staff have recently achieved the City & Guilds NVQ level 2 in Wall Tie Replacement. The qualification has been available for a few years but until now, there was no training provider willing to take on the assessment work required to enable us to achieve the qualification.

Our technicians are amongst the first in the country and the only ones in Yorkshire to achieve independent recognition of their wall tie replacement expertise. Well done Stuart, Darren, Ryan, Craig and Bryan.

Brick-Tie have been specialising in wall tie replacement for over 24 year years, with Stuart Lattimer and Bryan being in the business from the start.

As Stuart Lattimer explains, “Replacing wall ties isn’t rocket science, but the completed work is hidden from view and customers depend on us to do the work properly, because they cannot check it for themselves. It’s a big responsibility.”

MD Bryan Hindle recently signed The Skills Pledge, which is a government sponsored initiative to get more businesses to put training and staff achievement at the top of the agenda. “Signing up, really is a no brainer” explains Bryan. “Brick-Tie Preservation are only as good as those we employ. ¬†Improve them, improve everything. Customers want to deal with well motivated, happy and committed people. Clearly if we want to keep the best people for as long as they want to stay with us, we have to invest in them. We do, and as a result, our staff turnover is incredibly low.”

Our thanks go to: Construction Skills, City & Guilds institute, The Wall Tie Installers Federation, T-Centrix and our training manager; Katrina Jackson for all the hard work they’ve done to bring this NVQ into being.

Well done everyone!
