The company currently operates with a team of five Quantity Surveyors in addition to the administration team and is very proud to have supported business administrator Jade Wilson who has recently completed her apprenticeship with PRP Training Wales. Jade originally started with the company on the Welsh Government’s Kickstart Programme and progressed onto an apprenticeship of which she has now completed.
