Dave’s farther Stuart started his working life as a apprentice builder and chimney specialist before joining the family business his father had set up, making high-quality timber frame buildings. Stuart helped transform that business into a supplier of Swedish kit homes, which included ground-breaking heating technology not seen before in the UK.
Having retired from that business and joined his son Dave at Gondwana, Stuart brings a different angle to the heating systems firm. He deals with any aspects of the business involving construction, from building chimneys to rendering fire places.
He says: “I come from a time when things were a wee bit slower and the priority was that everything be done properly, not quickly and as cheap as possible, so I fit in well at Gondwana. Our clients want the best and it is a great pleasure to put the perfect finish on the systems and stoves that we have helped them choose and design.”
