Looking back on another successful day in the concrete, I was thinking about the team we have here at Walker Concreting & Resurfacing, not only being efficient tradesmen in placement and finishing of the grey stuff, but also a damn good bunch of blokes to work alongside.
I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce the regular lads that work with us on our concrete and resurfacing projects and give our clients a little insight into the boys.
WARNING: Images may or may not truly depict each team member.
AKA: Ben HURRRRR
Age: 35 years, often feels much…much older
Strengths: Screeding and singing
Has had his boots in the wet stuff for around half his life, which can either be a good thing for experience….or a terrible thing thinking “where the hell did I go wrong?” Jokes aside of course, you’ll find Ben giving his upmost in professionalism towards his clients and his work, whilst all the time pursuing his passion by rattling off random jingles all day long.
AKA: Tommy Diamond
Age: 51 years
Strengths: Finishing and yelling at truck drivers
Ollie has been concreting longer than concrete has been around. He paved the first footpaths in Rome and was an integral part of Emporer Vespasian’s building design of the Colosseum. Having invented the Stippler finish, he has then continued on to ply his trade throughout the centuries, subsequently ending up in the warm embrace of Walker Concreting & Resurfacing. He has also been a competitive body builder throughout his time and for a little bloke, really has quite the set of guns on him.
AKA: Cool McGool
Age: 50 years
Strengths: Finishing and staying stress free
Greg is another veteran of the mud borne from the fires of Mount Vesuvius and carrying on his expertise for centuries to come. Quite possible the coolest cat you’ll ever meet, always having the hair tied back and a smoke hanging from the lips, stress is just not an option here. Often referred to as the Bionic man, he’s got two false hips and several pins and plates in his legs due to shenanigans that would make confidence driven 20 year old men shiver with fear.
Brad Mooney will often find his way to our sites from time to time to show the boys how to screed. Claiming to just be warming up after 200sqm, he’s the only man we’ve seen able to hold a beer and screed at the same time, something we’re all yet to master.
Hopefully you’ve enjoyed reading a brief run down on our team.
As you’ve probably noticed, the boy’s aren’t the youngest concreters you’ll ever see, however, age breeds experience and experience breeds success. Some of the best quality concreters getting around the Gold Coast. (Apart from the boss, he’s usually just there to do the heavy lifting….go figure).
Give us a call soon to have us quote your work, you’ll enjoy our company.
