I initially met Simon for a small job at the start of a large reconstruction. He quickly became an absolutely key part of the reconstruction and with incredible commitment (working weekends, involving his contacts to help get a steel we needed at very short notice), worked with great skill on a wide range of jobs. These included putting in steels, dropping a chimney stack and of course the original job of bricking up a doorway. He also was very open and honest about works - only charging his day rate and showing any receipts for materials. His advice and expertise enabled the project to continue at the pace it needed to and after the job was done, he turned out to be one of the best tradesmen I have ever had the fortune to get in contact with.
