From Manufacturer to Contractor – James Cramp Joins Highview



From Manufacturer to Contractor – James Cramp Joins Highview

10 years into his construction career, James Cramp recently made the decision to bring his knowledge and experience from roofing manufacturing, to benefit our delivery at Highview, in his new role as Regional Director. 

We asked James to introduce himself and share some compelling insights from his unique CV…

Background

“I come from a construction family which led me to attend university to study architectural design technology and production at the Leicester school of architecture, based within De Montfort University. During my time at university I worked a placement year, and then part-time, at Moss Architecture as an architectural technologist. I also worked part-time for a local tanking company called Midlands Tanking as a CAD draughtsman.”

“After a brief stint in recruitment I joined Marley Eternit as their first ever graduate scheme. I spent 2 years working in their technical department specialising in Pitched roofing and Facades. This then led to my first area manager role, as a Façade specification manager in the South West, which then increased to the whole of the South over 2 years. An opportunity then became available at Bauder, where I worked for 6 years.”

Roofing Systems

“I have a strong knowledge of most flat roofing systems, having used all within my time at Bauder.”

“The systems I used the most were Bituminous, Single ply and Liquid. I also have a good understanding of green roof requirements.”

“From my days at Marley, I have a good technical knowledge on pitched roofing from clay tiles, concrete tiles to fibre cement slates and I have a very good knowledge of fibre cement facades.”

Manufacturer to Contractor

“I loved working for Bauder, who are an incredible company, but decided it was time for me to gain a greater experience elsewhere. Progression is a key thing in my career and I believe making the move now will benefit me in the long term.”

“Having worked with the teams at Highview previously, and working alongside Dan Costen during my time at Bauder, the opportunity to join the company and the role given to me is one I didn’t want to turn down.”

Highview Ambitions

“I would like to grow the business with a strong and loyal client base.”

“We will strive to offer the best service possible and where there may be times when this is stretched, it will be all about our honesty and integrity to meet the clients’ needs.”

“I hope to influence the business growth, bringing my technical knowledge, alongside my organisational skills, to increase an already thriving business.”

Giving the Clients Extra

“With my extensive knowledge of flat roofing, pitched roofing and facades, I have been on both sides of the fence. I understand the manufacturer’s route to market and what they will want for the client and marry that up with what we can offer from Highview.”

New Roofs in Oxford – House Builder Appoints Highview

Construction is underway at a new development to the south of Oxford, creating 14 houses and 3 apartment blocks for the affordable homes market. 

We are thrilled to have been instructed to install the new roofs on these homes and will be mobilising our teams to commence works from November 2020, through to May 2021.

Using an Axter Hotmelt system, along with Bitumen felt work, we will complete each roof in tandem with the builder’s programme to ensure a coordinated on-time delivery. 

We look forward to growing our new relationship with this award-winning developer.
