Through Josh Marais –
A former student of Tibshelf High School, Christian Peat (17) is the latest addition to DBCP’s technical support team.
Christian joins the leading provider of building control services in Derbyshire and Staffordshire Moorlands as a Level 3 Business Administration Apprentice.
Having studied construction and the built environment at school, Christian was familiar with building regulations and health and safety, which sparked his interest in the sector.
Based at DBCP’s Chesterfield office, Christian now works alongside the technical support team to manage inspection requests for the company’s team of 26 building control experts.
He said: “It’s a very varied role with DBCP, which is great. My father is a quantity surveyor and my mother also worked in planning, so I have experience through them in these areas. Working in building control adds to my skills and helps me identify what I would like to pursue as a career once my apprenticeship is finished.
Welcoming Christian to the Company David Pratt, Director of Building Control at DBCP, said: “I am delighted that Christian has chosen to begin his professional journey with DBCP. It is important that companies in the building control sector invest in training and skills for young people to avoid a future skills shortage.
“Looking ahead, we have started our recruitment process for two building control graduate apprentices. It is vitally important that we have trained and qualified Building Inspection Surveyors for current and future construction and renovation projects in Derbyshire and Staffordshire.
If you are considering a building control degree apprenticeship before you leave school next year and want to find out more, contact David Pratt, DBCP Building Control Manager, on 0333 880 2000 or by email at [email protected]
