Meet the team : Andrew Aitken

In this blog series we have asked each of our team members various questions so you can get to know us a little better.
This week we catch up with Senior Painter & Decorator Andrew Aitken

Describe your perfect project? - An old building like you would find on India Street. I like the characteristics - woodwork, cornices, etc. which go together so well. I enjoy stripping these features back to the original state and bringing them a new lease of life.

What got you into the industry? - I've always been good at art. I come from an artistic background and family. It suits me.

Explain your role in the company? - Senior Painter and Decorator. All activities are carried out with attention to detail and to a high standard. Some of my tasks include: ordering of materials, planning of works, preparation, painting, wall papering and any special effects. In addition, I train and support our apprentice.

What do you love most about your job? - Just what I’ve always liked to do due to my artistic background. I like to see the end products. I love to hear the client's thoughts - there’s nothing better than a happy client.

What do you think sets Edel apart from other similar companies?- The company works with you. We have the freedom to do the work the way it should be done and the way it was done.
