K10 in Partnership with South Eastern Carpentry

K10 & SEC

We enjoy our ongoing relationships with sub-contractors on major development projects throughout London. Thanks to one of these partnerships with South Easter Carpentry, we’ve been able to place Keenon and Omar on site of a Wilmott Dixon project.

Both started on the Old Admiralty Building project, which is transforming the grade 2 listed building into the new home of the Department for Education, in spring of 2019.

When asked about their experiences, the two carpenters responded: 

“I have really enjoyed my time with SEC and have loved the opportunity to work on this great project with the company. I am looking forward to future work with them.” 

-Keenon

“The work is good, I have been given the opportunity to learn carpentry, work with a good team and in an amazing building. SEC have always ensured that I can work at my own pace and pick up the trade as I go along, which is fantastic for my development.  ” 

-Omar
