Adam Pate

Adam Pate

Adam Pate is the proprietor of Croft View Construction. Adam carried out his joinery apprenticeship with Storey Construction aged 16.

He then became a professional rugby player for Barrow Raiders in Cumbria and Cessnock Goannas in Australia, but had to retire early due to injury.

Following 6 years of joinery employment, building up his skill set and competency, he started Croft View Construction in 2006 as a sole trader.

Due to Adam's extremely high level of skill, determination and quality of workmanship the Company has gone from strength to strength with an ever growing team.

Joe Birch

Joe Birch

Joe worked on his family farm in Bakewell and carried out his joinery apprenticeship in 2009 with Brocklehurst Property Maintenance. He competed in CITB's SkillBuild, coming second in 2009’s regional final and first in 2010’s regional final at the age of 18.

Joe's biggest claim to fame is that he appeared on the Bafta winning show 'The Island with Bear Grylls' in 2014! He loved the experience.

After meeting the love of his life and moving up to Cumbria he joined Croft View Construction in November 2015. We are extremely happy to have him on board as he is not only highly skilled and trustworthy, but he is an all round nice guy and someone we hope to have on our team for years to come.

Ali

Alison Pate

Alison Pate is Adam's wife. She is always on hand to support in the office and support the team with the view to making sure everyone is happy, healthy, and glad to be at work.

Ali is originally from Gloucestershire and moved to Carlisle to live with Adam.

She works part time for Croft View Construction, and the rest of the time is at home looking after their two small daughters.

She is a keen horse rider, new yoga enthusiast, wants to save the world from harsh chemicals and is a general busy body! Ali is an active campaigner for quality education that takes a child's individuality and mental health into account.

Stacey McEwan

Stacey McEwan joined us in March 2017, poached for her excellent work ethics and skills she can bring to our team. She is working with Janine and Ali in the office as a Office and Quality Co-coordinator.

Stacey studied and achieved her BA (Hons) Business Management Degree. Stacey has worked for the University of Cumbria for 5 years in a Administration role and then went on to System Training where she worked for the Quality and Audit team for a further 5 years.

Stacey lives in Annan with her husband and 2 small children, and enjoys reading and spending time with family and friends. She is always at the centre of a whirlwind of activity like every supermum excelling at her career and the more important job of parenting while she organises the lives of her family and her colleagues.

Janine Toms

Janine came on board to do a bit of marketing, business development, and interfering. She works alongside Stacey and Ali.

She studied languages at university, which required that she live in both Russia and Italy so she could become fluent, and nearly 20 years later there is little evidence that such fluency was ever achieved...

Janine worked in the lower echelons of the legal profession for nearly a decade before deciding a career change was in order for the sake of her sanity and has since honed her customer service and communication skills at System Group where a talent for, or obsession with, words landed her in marketing.

She has no claim to fame besides some childhood TV appearances (autograph requests can be made through our contact form) and a single (self) published children's book.

She loves spending quality time with family and friends and is a keen collector (hoarder) of vintage items of dubious practicality.

Mike

Mike Pate

Mike qualified as a plumber and heating engineer in the 1960's, with an established firm John Corbetts.

In 1979 Mike became self-employed and registered with CORGI, now known as Gas Safe. Two years ago Mike semi-retired and is now employed by his son, Adam, for Croft View Construction.

Mike's Saturdays involve refereeing at Cumbria Rugby Union matches, and he plays 5-a-side football on Friday evenings. If Mike is not fishing in Australia you will find him trout fishing on the River Eden.

Mark

Mark Stainton

Mark has joined the team with a wealth of experience having been a brickie for 44 years.

When he's not laying a course of bricks, he's walking a course of golf. He's a modest bloke and doesn't like to boast so he hasn't said how good he is but he kept quiet about his bowling skills too and did rather well on the scoreboard at the last staff outing - a bit of a dark horse!

Malcolm

Malcolm Anderson

Malcolm is a very talented, highly skilled joiner with 30 years' experience. He's dedicated and detail oriented and a pretty funny guy to top it all off.

He loves travelling and exploring new and interesting places with his wife when he isn't hard at work.

Gary

Gary Waugh

Gary has been a joiner for 28 years. He served his apprenticeship at Grahams in Langholm, who enjoyed the fantastic fruits of his labour and considerable skills until it closed its doors. He has now brought his experience and his talents to the Croft View Team and we couldn't be happier to have him here.

In his spare time, he likes to get out on his motorbike, go out for meals with his girlfriend and friends, and visit family, his niece and two nephews in particular.

Fame beckoned when he and another joiner renovated a large bell tower in Dumfries and were filmed on the day that it was craned back in place at the top of the tower. If you want proof that this is a true story, you'll have to climb up and have a good look around for Gary's name chiselled into one of the oak posts!

George Hutton

George Hutton

George is an apprentice in the Croft View Team. We were extremely impressed by George's professional attitude to gaining his apprenticeship position with us.

George is already proving to be a valued member of the team, joining in well and most importantly working hard with a dedicated attitude. His enthusiasm will take him far in his course and we look forward to helping him along his way.

In his spare time George is a keen football player, regularly playing for Abbeytown. He also enjoys keeping fit at the gym and socialising with his friends.

James

James Aherne

James joined us as a brand new joinery apprentice. He has already impressed everyone with his work ethic and with his enthusiasm. He is definitely one to watch as his skills grow and grow and we're so pleased to be a part of building (pardon the pun) those skills as he learns from the absolute best in the business!

In his spare time, James loves to practice his football skills and plays whenever he can.

Faye Davidson

Faye is an apprentice who came on board as an Administrative Assistant. She is supporting Stacey and Janine in the office and has been doing an incredible job. She works hard, is very organised, and is super efficient.

She previously studied Level 2 Beauty Therapy at Carlisle College before switching to Business Administration. She is interested in interior design so will hopefully get to build some experience in that area in the company's property development!

In her spare time, Faye loves going for walks around the Lake District, spending time with friends and family, and going out to eat. She keeps an eye out for new eateries and adds them to her wish list - maybe it's time for her to start a restaurant blog!
