We have a solid reputation in the Bournemouth area and continue to get work through word of mouth. As our portfolio continues to grow, we are becoming many people’s first choice for heating and plumbing services in Bournemouth and the surrounding areas.
As a company we aim to deliver quality workmanship in a courteous and timely manner. Our work is guaranteed and we are GAS Safe (TM) Certified.
I started plumbing 7 years ago after becoming tired and bored of sitting behind a desk. Prior to starting SCD Plumbing and Heating, I worked for JP Morgan and Liverpool Victoria. At the age of 28, I changed direction and went to Dorchester College for 2 years, whilst working for a building company doing labour work.
Following this, I went to Eastleigh College to get my Plumbing Level 3 Qualification and Gas Safe. I started working for a plumbing company called Solwat for 2 years, before moving to Drewsons Plumbing and Heating for a further 18 months.
In May 2016, I started SCD Plumbing. I started sub-contracting for local agencies for around 4 months whilst lining up enough jobs to keep me going and haven’t turned back since.
Work became so busy that I had to take on an apprentice in October 2016, who is on day release from Bournemouth College.
Although I have a IT Degree from the Southampton Institute, from back before my plumbing days, I hope never to work near a computer again!
