What makes you so happy?

“Working in the fresh air and with a wide range of skilled people,” says Hayley Chilton, a construction worker for Barratt Homes. “There is never a dull moment in construction, and a lot of satisfaction to be had in creating something from scratch. Handing over the finished product, especially to a first-time buyer, is incredibly rewarding.”

Paul Findlay, Site Manage for Bargate Homes Agrees:
















What makes you so happy?

“The best part for me is when you get to hand over a house, knowing that everything is how they want it. It’s quite a buzz.”

He also enjoys seeing the physical results of his labour. “I love the idea that in 20 years’ time I’ll be able to drive around the region looking at homes and saying, ‘I built that’.

“Plus, at the moment, when we’re experiencing a boom, there’s job security and the knowledge that I can provide for my family.”
