Having apprentices onsite is a great way to bring renewed perspective and innovative ideas to the workplace. As newcomers to the field, they may have a different outlook and a new approach to problem-solving, which can contribute to creativity and drive innovation within the organization.

H.E Sugars and Sons have always been easy to deal with and work with Master Builders to be compliant and quick responding. The work they do in the commercial sector is of top quality, whether it is multi stories or custom. They provide apprentices with a good learning experience and some of the projects they get to work on would be an eye-opener.
