Ryan Shann came to us from the same training scheme as Darren Roberts, back in 2001. A basic NVQ level 2 in Construction operations got Ryan started and he’s never looked back, now having earned a further NVQ2 in wall tie replacement and a third NVQ 2 in damp-proofing & timber treatment. He’s a Cintec approved installer and trained Vandex waterproofing technician too.
With fellow technician Craig, he has completed training on our latest heavy duty diamond drilling rig, completing a substantial job with it straight away; over 140 52mm diameter holes, 1600mm deep for Cintec anchors, on a Yorkshire Victorian prison.
Ryan’s trowel skills are a joy and he loves his work. Attention to detail is a given with Ryan; he really wants the job to be just what the client ordered. He is IPAF qualified to operate mobile elevated work platforms safely, which is a great benefit when clients have needs for wall tie replacement or structural repairs in hard-to-get-to places.
He re-sat the PCA technicians course in 2014, passing with flying coloiures and is also PASMA qualified for safe erection and use of tower scaffolds, which is crucial for our smaller sites, where aluminium towers are often used.
He and wife Rita have three gorgeous daughters, and has their names proudly tattooed on his arm, Beckham style.
We hear he’s been seen down the gym too, usually begging for help ? The wimp!
Joking apart – Ryan has also recently being added to the national professional biocide users register. This is only achieved after a training course and an exam. If you are looking for a safe and secure woodworm or dry/wet rot treatment; Ryan’s your man
