REGISTERED BUILDERS NORTH SHORE - OUR STORY
HOW IT ALL BEGAN
As the years progressed, the curiosity and the passion for building only grew. Having explored what university and the work force had to offer me, I realised I couldn’t deny my heart’s desire to work in the construction industry.
STARTING OUTWhen I set out to find a building apprenticeship times were tough and opportunities were scarce. Despite this, I was accepted into a labour company’s apprenticeship scheme. From there I had to serve out a trial period, at first labouring, to prove I was going to uphold their name and honour their financial commitment to me.
After labouring, I began my apprenticeship with Wayne Jensen at SCD Builders. Here I was placed in the care of 3 builders, who between them had over 80 years experience in the industry – I couldn’t have asked for better people to learn from. Each offered different areas of expertise and I soaked up their knowledge like a sponge.With Wayne and the team, I worked on commercial office units and renovations. I also assisted the team on building a number of new houses – a highlight being a country estate for one of our country’s wealthiest people.
Cain Built is growing and we only employ the best. All of our tradesmen are either trade qualified or training through The Building and Construction Industry Training Organisation (BCITO) to gain their certification. We’re also dedicated to further developing our builders – licensed staff are actively upskilling themselves, attending trade learning events and reading the latest trade publications to stay current with industry changes and continually expand their knowledge.
THE NEXT PART
After working for Will for five and a half years, I left to further develop my skills, working for Bridgens and Thomson. I remained with them until beginning my own company, at the end of 2014.The road to becoming a builder hasn’t always been a walk in the park, but often the road to the best things in life aren’t. As a result, I have determination in ‘spades’ and will work through any challenges to achieve my goals.
