The new build contracts include working for Scottish housebuilding giant Cala homes – a longstanding ambition for DDMG Services Group Managing Director, Darren McGhee. The business also has roofing contracts with Barratt Homes. Taylor Wimpey, Balfour Beatty and David Wilson.

Darren says, “I’ve now got a good group of tradesmen, apprentices, and labourers all working in the way we do things. I’ve only had a small team, but when you get professionals that know what they’re doing it’s enough.
