After leaving school in 1995, Danny decided he wanted to pursue a career in Carpentry. After applying and taking a basic skills test, Danny was enrolled in a 3 year full time modern apprenticeship with Jarvis PLC. Reflecting on the progress of his training in his third year, Danny had realised that he did not want to go into the major ‘’construction’’ side of the industry where quality was of secondary importance to productivity.
Thankfully, Danny approached ourselves and has now worked up from apprentice to a Site Manager; gaining an immense amount of experience on the way. Danny’s first large project was based in Doughty Street. This was a Listed Building that benefitted from a full refurbishment with a bespoke extension to the rear of the building. Since, Danny has successfully delivered large projects at a number of fine residential properties in Islington and has recently carried out the full internal and external conservation and repair of St Michaels Church in Blackheath.
A proud Londoner, Danny comments “During my 20 years with Fullers, I have been lucky to work in some of my home town’s most prestigious buildings and have taken great pride in restoring them sympathetically to their former glory.”
In 2016 we had a great project restoring various sections of St Mary-Le-Bow Church (Cheapside). As a child, I always recall my grandfather saying, “you’re only a true Cockney if you were born in the sound of the Bow Bells”, and here I was…..
Only 10 weeks into the project, I had the opportunity to meet legendary Louis Spence, as Children In Need was filming in the church courtyard. I even appeared on the TV broadcast wearing my Fullers apparel.
