Apex Brickwork & Scaffolding Ltd
Has evolved over a number of years with the coming together of the directors and senior management from major bricklaying and construction companies to have formed what is now one of the fastest growing brickwork companies in the south of England.
Head of the Board Andrew Mcgill has a team of management working with him to provide all the attributes that make a strong professional committed player in the bricklaying field, together they have completed some of the largest and prestigious brickwork projects in the south of England with a wealth of knowledge over a combined total of 70 years
We believe we have found our niche in the subcontract bricklaying market as a medium sized company that is not looking to stretch themselves by offering a service they cannot provide like many do but giving total commitment on secured projects we have negotiated with our clients.
We have set our company ethos at being able to supply professional tailored packages to suit each and all the different package requirements to the commercial and the domestic contractors in the industry, at a realistic competitive level during the current climate offering varied brickwork packages from Labour only to full Labour plant and materials and scaffolding, with our in house estimating and surveying department working together they are constantly coming up with innovative ideas to obtain the most efficient ways of any value engineering to obtain the most competitive price for our clients.
At present we have to hand at any one time up to 150 bricklayers and labourers plus forklift drivers and banksman with slingers all of which been CSCS carded and skills tested before being employed by Apex we also pride our self as one of the few contractors who maintain employing at least one new apprentice each year.
Every brickwork contract awarded will go through meticulous planning for labour and material requirements that have to interface with other trades and milestone dates within the main program our onsite bricklaying gangs are never more than 4 bricklayers without a charge hand who monitors their outputs and quality and reports back to the site supervisor who then carries out the ITPs which are then signed off by the main contractors site manager.
Due to the turbulent years in the industry of boom and bust 70s 80s and 90s we have looked to keep a 50- 50 work load of Commercial and domestic contracts, as you can see from our clients and projects to date we are maintaining this by being more focused on that as our goal rather than constantly seeking to increase turnover.
