Local Skilled Tradesmen

Why Tradesmen and Why Local ?

A tradesman is a skilled manual worker in a particular trade or craft. Economically and socially, a tradesman's status is considered between a laborer and a professional, with a high degree of both practical and theoretical knowledge of their trade. Palace Estates use local time served craftsmen to undertake thier projects and have an extensive pool of talented tradesmen to call upon during high project volumes.

The training of a trade in European cultures has been a formal tradition for many centuries. A tradesman typically begins as an apprentice, working for and learning from a Master, and after a number of years is released from his master's service as a Journeyman. After a Journeyman has proven himself to his trade's guild (most guilds are now known by different names), he may settle down as a Master and work for himself, eventually taking on his own apprentices. We have built relationships with families and in some cases we have worked with 3 generations of the same family from father to son to son over the last 30 years.

Few trades still make a distinction between a qualified tradesman and a master craftsman and we use both.

We continually check the quality of the work completed by our tradesmen and only accept the highest standards in the marketplace.
