After training, Mike began working as a plumbing and heating engineer in 1979. He started working for Devon County Council, mostly in schools and from there it all grew, to the point that Mike says, "there can't be a public building in Exeter that we haven't worked in!"
In converting bathrooms, he and Adrian Taylor have worked together for 18 years. In all that time, they have never had a cross word. Mike says that working in a 2 metre room for 5 days a week, they have to get on!
Adrian began his 3 year apprenticeship as a carpenter and joinery at Woodmans & Son, in Exeter in 1974.
He then worked at Exeter City Council, where he ran the Joinery Shop and was responsible for all carpentry for the Council. He started working with Mike in 1989. He now specialises in the carpentry side of the business particularly bathroom conversions, fixing the equipment and tiling.
Another Exeter man, Terry started his apprenticeship as a bricklayer at Sleemans (now ROK). He then spent 9 years in the Army, in the Royal Engineers. Terry deals with all the ‘wet trades', bricklaying, plastering, floor screeds. Terry's son has now joined the team.
Tony has lived in Exeter for 45 years and worked for Mike Gozna for 27 years. He loved metal work at school and has built a career on his favourite subject. Tony runs the Workshop, going out to site to measure up for the more technical side of the job.
