Apprentices are the way forward

A TOP Saddleworth building and construction company is looking forward to a development of its own as it welcomes new apprentices to its team.

Oldfield Construction, headed by Andy and Stewart Potts, is taking on the trainees as part of their on-going in-house training program, which is site-based and complemented by college study.

The apprentices will learn their trade working on both large construction contracts and smaller home projects with the company, which was established 21 years ago.

Renowned for high-quality workmanship and being timescale and budget sensitive, the team of eight offers an intimate service working with local trusted electricians, plasterers, and plumbers.

Surrounded by ever-developing technology, the company prides itself on its modern green-conscious approach, which includes evaluating the existing building and making cost affective improvements to its existing fabric along with energy-saving new build techniques to help clients reduce energy bills.

In fact a recent eco-friendly project for Mark Nichols at Hale Barns produced a kitchen/diner extension to the existing house that is ‘the warmest room in the house’.

Other start-to-finish work includes a loft conversion and underground gym for a house in Wilmslow, and the regeneration of a large residential house into flats in Salford.

Closer to home, the team is preparing for a barn conversion and renovation in Diggle after helping with the planning applications and architects – guiding clients along every step of the way.

Oldfield’s work ranges from home im
provements, including extensions, conservatories, patios and kitchens, to commercial contracts of new builds, renovations, and conversions. For more information, advice and free estimate with a detailed breakdown, call: 01457 870369, email: or visit:
