About Me

Welcome to ThatBuilder.Co.UK

I’m Mark Cullen, the proud owner of this platform, and I warmly welcome you to my blog. As a grandfather and father of six, my life has been enriched with family and a passion for the construction industry. For over 30 years, I have dedicated myself to mastering the art of construction, and it has been a rewarding journey.

While a recent health challenge has led me to step away from on-site work, I am determined not to let it hinder my commitment to sharing my wealth of knowledge and experience with others.

And now, I’m thrilled to pass on everything I’ve learned to you.

I have a wealth of experience and qualifications in construction, including City & Guilds, CPCS and CITB certificates. These are recognised by the industry as the highest standards of training and competence.
