Meet one of our four ground workers, Jack Davies

21st October 2019

  1. 1. Job title

Ground worker

2. How long have you worked at SB Homes?

To be honest, I don’t know the exact date but it’s around 10-11 years.

  1. 3. What does your typical week look like?

Every week is different for us, in fact most days are.

We put the underground drainage systems in place for the whole site - it's a job that's never seenOn the other hand, a role that can be shown off, and that we are proud of, is the landscaping and gardens. Whether it's building a fence, creating patio areas using indian stone flags or constructing the dry-stone walls that are on our developments, there's plenty to do.
 

There’s always a mixture of jobs to get your head around – it keeps us on our toes!

  1. 4. What do you love about your job?

Standing back at the end of the day and seeing what you’ve achieved is definitely rewarding.

All of my colleagues make work a lot more fun – especially the banter on site.

  1. 5. Why should someone buy an SB Homes property?

The quality of the homes we build are second to none. No stone is left unturned and it’s always amazing to see the end result.

The purchasers have so much choice, so they can really make their own.

  1. 6. What's your biggest achievement in work?

I wouldn’t say I have one main achievement, but when a site is complete, and we look back at what everyone has achieved over time, there’s no better feeling!

  1. 7. When you're not at work, where can we catch you?

Usually with my friends, having a beer and chilling – I’m good at that when I can.

  1. 8. Describe your dream home

My dream home would be probably an old house, with all the mod cons inside. I’d love a big garden. But I wouldn’t want my house to be too big, I’m not a massive fan of the vac!

  1. 9. Where would you like to see SB Homes in ten years?

I'd like to see SB Homes progressing and carrying the quality of build on.
