TWO apprentices have joined Cardiff-based fabricator Dudley’s Aluminium’s estimating department.
Apprenticeships combine studying with practical training and gaining valuable workplace experience, allowing participants to earn as they learn.
Dudley’s Aluminium has created bespoke apprenticeship opportunities for Izaak Lenney, 20, and Lewis Richards, 18, to help the pair develop their skills as Estimators and Quantity Surveyors.
Supporting the fabricator’s estimating team, Izaak and Lewis help prepare estimates, cost plans, rates and bills of quantities for curtain walling, windows, doors and storefronts for customers. Other responsibilities include managing costs of ongoing projects, carrying out construction valuations and ensuring that projects are completed within their projected budgets.
Izaak Lenney said: “Since starting my apprenticeship I have been working alongside experienced staff at Dudley’s which has been so helpful for me. Shadowing someone allows you to learn at a faster pace and this has really helped build my knowledge as well as improve my personal and social skills.”
