Gareth Guiver

Gareth created Distinction back in 2004 having originally trained as a plumber and then advanced on to hold managerial status is several other companies.  He then went on to qualify as an estimator, surveyor and has furthered his education in business studies and construction  to obtain a BTEC NC & NVQ levels 3, 4, and 5.

Having been an FMB member for over 10 years, Gareth was asked to join the executive panel  4 years ago.  Working closely with the FMB to further promote it’s awareness within the public sector, Gareth was voted in as Chairman of the Federation of Master Builder – Bristol Branch in 2013.

As the managing Director of Distinction with 20 years experience in the construction industry, Gareth’s main role is to make sure that the company is providing the excellent service and quality expected by it clients.

Don first worked for Distinction as an electrical subcontractor back in 2007 when he managed and run his own company.

After just a short couple of years it was clear that Don was going to be part of the team so he came on board full time with a clear passion for estimating and surveying.

In 2010 he was made up to a Director in the company and has looked after a large proportion of the residential sector work specialising initially in kitchens and bathrooms but soon progressed on to extensions and loft conversions.

With 14 years experience in the building trade, Don has become  a great asset to the company providing an electrical background to match both Gareth and Richards Plumbing and Carpentry skills.

Tony Smith

Tony Smith

One of the originals… having worked with Gareth Guiver for close to 10 years providing scaffold services from other companies,  Tony and Gareth decided it was time to start their own scaffold company.

Gareth said “we needed a reliable scaffold company that could deliver the same service as Distinction but had the knowledge and technical ability to tackle even the most complex scaffolds, Tony was the only person who could deliver on all of the above”.

Tony is a very experienced scaffolder having previously owned his own company & been project manger of one of the largest scaffold companies in Bristol. Since joining Distinction he has carefully chosen a select team to work with him to reflect the Distinction ethos.

Tony and the Distinction team have provided scaffolds for the Mecure, Novotel and Ibis group,  Rolls Royce,  Scottish  Southern Electric, Thornhill,  Avon  Somerset Police Authority  as well as a large number of separate building contractors and Distinctions own residential clients.

CITB Registered with relevant Construction Site Safety qualifications.

Well.. ..we are not allowed to mention his age, but experience is certainly not lacking with Richard, he joined Distinction as a Director back in 2006 having run his own company and project managed several others. Richard is used to working with traditional materials and combining them with modern techniques.

As a qualified plumber, carpenter and joiner Richard also progressed on to achieve a BTEC NC & HNC in construction – equivalent qualifications to a Building Inspector.

Richards main duties are to project manage the larger construction works, as a working manager on site he liaises directly with the client providing sample materials upon request and offers the flexibility to alter the specification should a tailor made decision be requested by the client.
