Name: Stuart Bowman
Job Title: Technical Surveyor
What is your job: It is my job to take final, accurate measurements for manufacture of our doors and windows. I liaise with our customers on final details such as colours, designs and their requirements checking things like designs and colours of frames, hardware and any shapes or coloured glass needed. Anything bespoke about the product is clarified with me and I ensure the manufacturing team are made away of these.
How long have you worked for ERW? 4 Years, starting in May 2012. I used to be a subcontractor here before enquiring about full time work and was taken on as a technical surveyor.
How would you describe working at ERW? Interesting and challenging due to the different natures of the work that I undertake. As I work with the client to ensure they get the product they wish things often change daily and I find myself in new situations where I have to adapt.
What is your favourite part of the job? Meeting different people on a daily basis and producing scaled drawings.
What have you worked on recently that you’re proud of? We have recently completed a project where we replaced old rotten timber windows with intricately designed bay windows, door arrangements and sliding sash windows in a historical building in Little Ayton, North Yorkshire.
What do you look forward to doing at work each day? Meeting different people and helping them achieve their requirements and also knowing that I have achieved a full day’s work.
What is the most important thing you have learnt working here? To be considerate to others and listen to people. Check, check and check again.
If your co-workers could describe you using three words what would they be and why? Small, friendly and approachable because of my age and experience.
What do you like to do to relax when you aren’t hard at work? Me and my wife do a lot of walking in Rosedale, Farndale and Great Ayton. The scenery is superb and they are brilliant places to lose yourself in, relax and switch off. We also love attending quizzes and giving ourselves names like ‘The No-Nouts’ and socialising with our friends.
