This week on under construction with Chadwick's.
Aidan Power 0:04
This week we find out if there's such a thing as high tech boats, we find out about chadwicks highly specialized fixing center and chat with Pete the builder about the number one most critical issue facing the industry. And it's not lack of money or materials. seatbelt,
check your mirrors, volume. The under construction podcast with Asian power and Franco starts. Now
Aidan Power 0:29
while we're chatting about our school days. And it turns out Fred and I both did woodwork as I'm sure many people listening to that as well. during school Fred, did you make any good in what
Fred Cooke 0:38
I made with everyone made in the 90s? Which was a spice rack? Which was like Shrek, which is still have no, it's more used these days. Because back in the 90s the only spices we had with salt and pepper. Was it so I don't know why. Like, time, time was something that you know people from extra called time.
Coriander was the thing your mom watched in the evenings. And they told me like it was like, spice right wash. And I didn't make it. Another thing would just become so unneeded as a tape cassette holder. I made a tape cassette holder which I still have. I probably use it now just to dry out my nine month old son socks. Just tiny little things. That's that's what it's for. Like,
Aidan Power 1:24
I wonder how many houses across the country have spice racks and tape holders made by the kids in school?
Fred Cooke 1:31
It was a great time like you know, like what what was your wardrobe teacher like Aiden?
Aidan Power 1:35
Oh, wow. He was Sam. Well, I want to be kind to him. He was a character and I want to be kind because he may no longer be with us. But we call him smokey Joe. We didn't call him by his actual real name. We call her smokey Joe and it can take from that what you will think father jack thing father jack with a mallet. That was when I think back to afraid like 1314 year old young fellas let loose in a class full of dangerous tools. We had bench saws, we had hammers, we had mallets we had nails. And smokey Joe was nowhere to be seen. But you knew where he was by the puff of smoke that was coming from the back room and the storeroom and the odd grumble and mumble and god knows what else he was doing in there. And we would just let loose messin and hitting each other and doing all sorts but we did. We did turn out a few objects like a lamp and a book rack. So that was that was ours. Any other cool woodwork projects you've heard about Fred?
Fred Cooke 2:28
Oh, I like the one of my my year I only did it for first year now. So when I look at leaving church here, those guys are amazing. One guy made an electric guitar right but most electric guitars that you'd buy have 22 fracks right. But these guys have more friends to his guitar so we could get higher notes than any other guitar couldn't. So if you're walking by if you're walking down the street, when when things open up and you hear guitar tones really high. There's a lot he made himself in 20 years ago. Another guy right this is a bit lazy now. He said he he showed it to us so this is jr shirts. And he says oh yeah, I made a jewelry box but it was just a box. It was just a box you can't it's a box no to jewelry. It's not just because it's a box. That's just the same lab that the next year he made it. He said he made a shelving units. But it was just another box on top of another box. That's all it was. With one side taken out. This is so lazy, you know like you had to work in your mind
Aidan Power 3:30
is a genius. All right, we'll be talking plenty about carpentry on the show today and chatting with Pete Finn, aka Pete the builder. I'm Brian Taylor from chadwicks excellent specialist fixing center in Dublin,
under construction with Chadwick's over 40 stores nationwide, so we're always local.
Aidan Power 3:47
First, let's have a look at our photo of the week where you send us a picture of some work that you are very proud of. I want to share it with everyone listening if you look at your phone or whatever you're listening to us on right now, you should see a photo of the iconic Guinness Storehouse and specifically the gravity bar at the top. Now while most people take into view at Dublin we're more interested in the cladding which was done by Niall Colin and the team a crown roofing and cladding.
Unknown Speaker 4:09
Crown roofing and cladding was contracted by the main contractor, PJ Haggerty to undertake the Guinness Storehouse James's gate, Dublin Ace Commercial Roofing Installation of 2000 meter squared VMs zinc roofing and sulfur cladding installation of 1000 meter squared trocar single ply roofing on metal decking and the installation of 500 meter squared mineral wool insulated panels. This was a challenging and intricate project with the visually stunning end result.
Aidan Power 4:42
Thank you now and the team of crown roofing and cladding and for bringing that to our attention. I've been to the Guinness Storehouse a couple of times Fred, I've admired the view looking out but I can't say I've ever looked up and seeing that cladding that Niall is talking about and boy is it amazing?
Fred Cooke 4:57
Yeah, it's unreal. And you know, it kinda reminds me It's like nothing I've ever seen. You know, it's kind of like you're the FBI, you've said that this is true that the government have said that there's aliens do exist, do exist, but I reckon it was just on Route while we're bringing this stuff to the Guinness Storehouse. FBI ladder and 10 Temple Bar and and seeing this stuff because it's just like, it looks like it looks like on wordly started to say, yeah, it's kind of space age, isn't it? Yeah. Unreal. Yeah,
Aidan Power 5:23
almost futuristic. It's very modern. It's very contemporary. But the attention to detail is stunning. It also might remind you and I mean, this is the best possible way of like, you know, those elements and aluminium trade issues your model tartan, like the bass is one of those. Yeah, I'm not sure that was part of the concept design, you know, in terms of what they were trying to model it on. But
Fred Cooke 5:42
that's what it looks like to me. incredible detail. And, and like, you know, it's one of those things as well, like, you wouldn't want to make a mistake halfway through it, because it's all connected to each other crop.
Aidan Power 5:54
Well, thanks. Oh, well, thanks, Niall. And remember, if you'd like to share a photo of some work you were proud of, and share it with everyone listening as our photo of the week you can just watsapp us and send us a voice message along with that 2087 7754 triple five. That number is always in the show description.
under construction with new episodes every Monday on Apple, Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts.
Aidan Power 6:23
The last year to chadwicks has opened a specialized fixing store in Dublin which is proving very popular with subcontractors and commercial clients and to get the nuts and bolts of how to get the best value on fixings for your job. We're joined by manager Brian Dale and Brian Welcome to the podcast. Hey, how are you guys? Thanks for having me. Brian. You came up in the business true carpentry I believe Where did you get your start?
Brian Dillon 6:43
I started in the family business. I started out with the with the Father and went on site and I was basically did my apprenticeship through Bolton Street and was on my tour with them for about 14 years.
Aidan Power 6:56
Okay and did you specialize in any particular area of carpentry?
Brian Dillon 6:59
My dad was a kind of a house builder so we did extensions and conversions was was our main kind of job. I would usually be in on the digger digging foundations right up to high end doors at the very end of the job.
Fred Cooke 7:12
Did you ever see anything interesting from the vantage point of a roof
Brian Dillon 7:17
depends on when you're looking go on Tell us more Come on Come on. Well, believe it or not I actually met a girl through a roof one day looking in the window there we end up on it for two years. So it was
Aidan Power 7:36
Wow, I thought that was going to end up but he ended up in a garda station. So so you're on the roof and you see her truth the truth the bedroom window are we in the race room here? What's happening?
Brian Dillon 7:47
Not quite though it sounds sounds a bit crazy. No, no, it's just that I was working on the roof in an area and it hasn't stayed that's okay. But God said it was the longest roof ever took the longest
Aidan Power 8:02
brilliant bride when it comes to fixing and load bearing obviously you know your stuff and had to pull clients as well. Tell us about the other guy that works with you and what's his background?
Brian Dillon 8:14
So Andy is a is a quantity surveyor by trade. So he's a qualified quantity surveyor on he has worked in previous Stam and companies selling very similar products. So he has I think between us we have a good to do to his probably 10 years I've bought in 15 maybe so trade so nearly 30 years experience.
Aidan Power 8:32
Wow. Okay, so good partnership and your boat running this kind of nice section of Chadwick's called the fixing center.
Brian Dillon 8:38
What is exactly. So the fixing center we're based in Thomas Street, we're based in chadwicks branch and the main branch put on the right hand side as you drive in the yard. We are on the right hand side. And we're kind of a standalone store. And we specialize in fixings, accessories and power tools.
Aidan Power 8:55
Hmm, you're kind of hidden off Thomas street there, aren't you?
Brian Dillon 8:58
It is your go to the arch. There's a famous arch there really literally right beside Vicar Street. So but Fred might know that that area for you? Well, so right into the arch. We're in there on the stones pocket in the middle of town. So it's a great little spot. Right? And what are the main lines that you carry there? So we kind of specialize in commercial anchors. So am we, I suppose there's normal nuts and bolts and screws and normal chadwicks all the way across the 40 stores across the country. But in our store our store, it's a little bit more engineering behind it. So we specialize in eta approved anchors, which is kind of an engineering term I suppose its eta is like a third party outfit who tests an anchor, let's say so they test an anchor to its maximum and then they give a rating on that anchor. So where we are kind of in that end of So for example, if you are hanging let's say an air units in a concrete seat on the ceiling with extended concrete, you would supply us with the with the weight of the unit and then we can run that through the software. And we can suggest and what correct anchors us.
Aidan Power 10:03
So this is quite a specialized service that you offer, is it? It is it is. Yeah.
Brian Dillon 10:09
It's basically we have we have engineers behind this. So what we do is we get a few weeks. So say for example, do you want to hang something so you give us the base material, which is really important. So is a concrete is brick, is it steel is a timber, the environment that's going to be in is going to be indoors is going to be outdoors, and the load bearing that's needed. And we run that through a software, and it's basically spits out an anchor spits out something that will be proven to hold.
Aidan Power 10:38
So Brian, tell us more about the engineering behind these particular anchors, how are they tested?
Brian Dillon 10:43
So there's a test if you it's just for example, if you're in a supplier, and you come up with a brand new expansion bolts, and you want to put it out in the market, you basically send it to DGA, which is a European technical assessment. And what that does is they're a third party and they would test the anchor to its limit. And they would suggest a load bearing based on their their findings.
Fred Cooke 11:06
So so big jobs, right, need a price value down to the last. And so how do you do this for contractors,
Brian Dillon 11:12
we basically price per project. So if you have a large project, and we can basically price it right down to the last fixing perfect scene. So say for example, you have a student accommodation, and you need four floors of piping being held to the ceiling or to the floor to the wall, we can actually price perfect seam all the way through the project. right down to the last bolt. So yes, yes, it's it's approved, and we can supply the tools. And we can supply the drill bits that go with it. So we can actually sell the system. And speed and productivity is the biggest cost on site. So we can we can actually supply you with a battery operated high power drill, a forehead carbide tip, drill, this still works, we can we can briefly listen to the works. So if you have electrical cable example, for example, and you run the underside of the ceiling, we have containment clips that you can literally use a battery powered gas gun to fire up these clips to hold in the cables.
Aidan Power 12:15
Tell us more than about these particular power tools and the bigger tools that you can supply for commercial jobs. But also, I guess, show people how to use them as well.
Brian Dillon 12:24
Yeah, exactly. So we have them, we have a lovely little store here. And Thomas here, as I said, so we have an all to display. So we can actually do in store demonstrations as well. And there's a couple of brands who do a large battery platform ccpd was a flexible battery system got Makita on the 40 volt system. And you have also have Milwaukee. So these would be kind of traditionally bigger machines and they'd run off a bigger battery, then you a standard combi drill, say, and most of the larger sites, you're not allowed us extension leads on the site janal It's a trip hazard. So a lot of the bigger contracts, your feet scope, seven floors, you don't want to be logon up and extension leads and transformers and so on. So we have battery power tools, who can give you the same performance as a traditional corded machine.
Aidan Power 13:15
Let's say finally, for now, Brian, what kind of site are you working on at the moment?
Brian Dillon 13:19
So we're working on a number of sites across the city, anything from student accommodation, right up to data center, right down to the standard house builder,
Aidan Power 13:29
everything and anything all in there? We've taken off. Thanks for the moment, Brian, but come back for a podcast shortly.
This is the under construction podcast from Chadwick's. Let's get it done.
Aidan Power 13:42
Well, we're coming to the closing stages of our weekly competition where we want to start yet with something in chadwicks that we call the Tula dreams. And it's the kind of thing you'll see in the branch that's perhaps a luxury or on your wish list. It's definitely something that you want, but you don't want to be spending a heap of cash on and that's why we call it the tool of dreams. Now each week for the crack we set Fred a challenge to come up with a jingle in the style of someone famous. As soon as we're chatting about carpenters this week. easy one for you, Fred. Your theme
should be wood, wood, wood, wood, Ward's
Fred Cooke 14:10
rice, all I can think of is like Woodstock fans to paid Woodstock, but also Utah, Utah. Remember that Aiden and then Fleetwood Mac.
Aidan Power 14:19
Yeah, yeah. Okay. Yeah.
Fred Cooke 14:21
Maybe all Frankie Goes to Hollywood. What you think Hollywood, okay, they're
Aidan Power 14:25
getting weaker and weaker.
Fred Cooke 14:28
What about us? Yes. Yeah, bird, baby
Aidan Power 14:32
bird. Oh, okay. All right. Okay, she's good. Isn't this alright fried shrimp on the guitar, close your eyes and think would have got
Fred Cooke 14:41
all lemon tree. Of course.
Unknown Speaker 14:44
sandals your job for the two love dreams. If you think you're funny and you'd like to win with us your job, your job, father to love dreams to love you.
Aidan Power 15:02
He cleverly done wood three level. Yeah. Wow, you're one step ahead of us. And thank you for putting that desperate song back in my head now, it took me a decade to get it out. And now it's back of the rosary for you to win your dreams. All we're asking you to do is send us a WhatsApp voice note, we joke a funny story, the numbers Oh, eight 777 54 triple five. And the jokes we use across the podcast series are all in that draw in about 10 days time to win the Tula dream. So here we go with this week's contender. It's Justin Murphy.
Joke of the Week 15:36
What's the best thing about Switzerland's? Well, we don't know what the flag is a big clause. I haven't heard that one before. No, I love it. Yeah.
Fred Cooke 15:54
It's funny as education. A great teacher. Yeah,
Aidan Power 15:59
yeah. The other joke I've heard about a country's flag was Japan. But that's not for this part. All
Fred Cooke 16:05
Aidan Power 16:07
yeah. Justin at mighty fine stuff. You are a definite contender for the Tula dreams well done. If you can beat that time is running out. So send us a WhatsApp message. Now with your joke. Oh, eight 777 54 triple five. Remember, next week will be our last joke of the season. So send yours now if you want to win, we will find that WhatsApp number and all our contact details in the show description on your phone right now.
trade talks, tips and boundaries. This is the under construction podcast from chadwicks pledge getting
Aidan Power 16:38
time for a little trade talk now and a catch up with Peter Finn, who started as a carpenter by trade then co founded the construction company Finn and Flynn and of course, he is the star of Ortiz home rescue TV show and he's also becoming the star of this podcast. And there's some important issues that we want to talk about this week, starting with the critical problem in the trade at the moment. What is it peace?
Pete the Builder 16:59
And well we've got a lot of problems in the in the trade at the moment bought and obviously materials is a serious issue. But also men getting and and ladies getting basically workers on sois train workers and qualified people to do to do to jobs that are stacking up boy today are difficult. So it's certainly a challenge. And as a lot of different factors involved in in sort of creating the environment that we have at the moment, you know.
Aidan Power 17:27
So what was it like when you entered into into the trade compared to how it is now? Is there just more opportunities out there for young people? Are they less willing to get their hands dirty?
Pete the Builder 17:36
I think these days, people are more leaning towards going for college. And I think Unfortunately, our construction industry is kind of looked upon as maybe a section the second option rather than the forest option. And oil genuinely think that's wrong, or you think getting into construction, especially a trade getting a trade is such a valuable asset to have. And it doesn't mean that you're a carpenter or your whatever the trade is took off for the rest of your life, you can advance yourself and you can go on and do for tanks. It's a very good stepping stone in the right direction. What also Aiden it is an opportunity for you to leave school and straightaway get into a job that is paying you while you're getting trained. And that is unusual. Most times you're in college and you're scrounging around trying to do you know work or getting grants or getting loans and those things. Whereas in construction, you're straight away you're walking so you're you're getting paid for making mistakes, and learning your trade along the way. You know,
Aidan Power 18:32
alright, if I'm a young fella, I'm 1617. And I'm curious about this. Like how would you go to pay me Pete to go on site with you?
Fred Cooke 18:40
Well, you Aiden, now you've up on a big brand. So what should I get paid to tender a way that you can pay? Me?
Pete the Builder 18:51
And I know in an answer yours news, lads, it's a it's based on a percentage of an overall tradespersons wages. Once you get sort of forced here you get, I think it's 20% or 40% of a tradespersons wage, which is absolutely enough to keep you going when you're at that age. And then you incrementally go forward and your second year you get I think it's up to 60% and your tour de are up to 80% in your in your fourth year of your apprenticeship with your last year, you're actually up to 90% of a tradespersons wage. And then obviously as soon as you're qualified, you're onto a full tradespersons wage. So you usually be taken home between 550 and 600 euros in your in your fourth year as a 40 qualified tradesperson um, boy, normally it's that's not a bad wage. And if the opportunity then to go and do other things, maybe go out on your own. You can go do price work, you know, the disclosure limit.
Aidan Power 19:42
Right? Well, the people who be listening right now are people like you, they're their trades people and they're going yet tell tell me something new. We know how difficult it is to find these people. So have you any advice for people who are looking to take on apprentices or get more workers?
Pete the Builder 19:57
Yeah, well, it's kinda it's kind of hard look. I usually do it through people I know what I've been looking off out, like I've had probably about 14 apprentices come through through my company. And, and about 10% of them have actually been brought on, you know, it's been, it's been actively been very lucky Oh, usually, I try and have some sort of connection with the person force. Because when you're taking on an apprentice, or when you're an apprentice with that person, you're you're starting a relationship with them. It's nearly like a nearly a father and son figure, it depends on the size of the company and that type of thing. But you really are going to be committing yourself to the person on both sides. So it's important to like them
Fred Cooke 20:32
you like to Mr. Miyagi of carpentry? Yes. Grandma's fragile? And well, you know, it's
Pete the Builder 20:47
a good analogy, though. Because you do you learn and, and, you know, when the karate kid was starting off, he couldn't even wax on wax off. And but yeah, but he was, he was thrown out, it's hard to kick left, right and center board. And now look at it. Like, that's, that's kind of what you're doing, you're going to learn off someone you're getting to get their experience. Obviously, if you're on a bigger stage, or touching off different raise people, and you're going to learn all different tricks off different people for you know, I think I think it's important for both people to kind of maybe have some connection, I've got a few through the GAA club, I've got, you know, through, you know, friends and neighbors and things like that, then I've had a few people that have just shown really good commitment, have sent me letters of you know, and sent me emails and just kind of said, looking and looking for a trade and, you know, being persistent about what and I've gone and I've met them, I've given people to Troy, Troy same as same as any job, you're, you're going through a probationary period. And of course, it gives the person an option, like, you know, after three months to say, you know what, so is not for me, I'm going going back to college, or I'm going to do whatever. So either way, you're going to get a good learning experience, what do you say to people is, have a go with it, and try it. And if it works out, you're in a really good situation, if you get that apprenticeship, you've got your ticket to travel, it's like your license, to be able to make money and to do whatever you want. And all across the world. But obviously, you can advance as well, you don't always have to be an employee, you become like, you know, most sole traders and in in industry or in the construction industry. So, you know, there's really, really is lots of different options and lots of different directions that you can go on it, you know.
Aidan Power 22:15
Okay, Pete, let's talk about the ongoing issue of materials. It's changing by the week, how bad is that at the moment,
Pete the Builder 22:22
or hidden, it's, it's real bad, it's tough. Like, you have to be so organized, you have to kind of have your materials list of two to three weeks ahead of you already tired about this week. And I'd love to say on that organized, bought, you know, it's hard to do that. And then you know, you're you're, you're relying on the suppliers and look like Chadwick, Thomas, he are one of the best lawyers, they're my go to all the time, because I've got a very good relationship with them. But also they've got good stocks and in store, and they've got really good connections with lots of different suppliers. Well, even even the best of the suppliers, they're on quotas now. So even the companies that are making some of these materials on supplying someone to materials dare on quotas, so there is literally a global shortage of the raw materials to make our building materials. And then therefore, there's a shortage of our building materials. Now it is starting to break a little bit, you're here and sort of whispers that, you know, it's going to start easing up a little bit soon. Well, at the moment, the supply and demand are kind of very, very imbalanced. And it's a tricky, tricky situation. So really, you just got to be as organized as you possibly can and get your orders in quick, quick, quick.
Aidan Power 23:30
Okay. And that's affecting cost.
Pete the Builder 23:33
I'd love to say the costs are gone down, but unfortunately, they are not. Yeah, supply and demand is a funny old thing. And you know, it's, it's very difficult because like oil price jobs two years ago, I know you still have to match those prices. Now you don't I mean, so it's quite stressful. Most people are understand that I'm going and you can approach us or you can approach an architect or a client and say, Look, we genuinely cannot do the job for that price of you're going to have to work with me. And here's the evidence. And the evidence is turn on the news. Open your phone read the newspaper. It's everywhere. It's happening all over the world. It's not an isolated incidents situation in Oregon. So tricky tricky times. But you know what, if you're if we communicate and we're transparent with our clients, architects and project managers usually day will play ball with you.
Fred Cooke 24:16
Yeah, because because you do seem so organized and you're great at getting stuff done. And it's just sinking in and I were talking earlier on about about leaving search and and people who do go into trades but you're leaving search woodwork project must have been amazing. Like what was the house?
Pete the Builder 24:33
No, it was actually it was only it was a handy one was a place called a patch Mahal. Just me and one of the other lads
Fred Cooke 24:39
made the Taj Mahal
Pete the Builder 24:40
Yeah, just for my school price. No, I gotta be honest, right. I I learned more when I met with my friends your boy. I found as young lad as it goes on. It's true. That's what I started off doing. Like I live out the stakes in Saigon and they're awkward all the farmers so it was a bit rough handed decided to offer and I had to calm down and lowdown and and get the get the soft torches you know so um no I really I really enjoyed woodworking school and deconstruction studies down and fifth and sixth year and I loved I loved the ROI ROI from them and I'd love to say that I was getting straight A's from young age but now now unfortunately I had to learn a lot and I had to get better but that's that's you know,
Aidan Power 25:23
it sounds a Pete will lock it so good to have you back on the podcast we we appreciate your time and we do look forward to seeing you on home rescue on Etsy after the summer so once again Pete the builder Peter fan, thanks for being with us. Thanks, man. It

Aidan Power 25:44
Well, Brian Dylan for chadwicks fixing center on Thomas threepeace back with us and about to play our pod quiz on behalf of a chadwicks customer who can win customized answering message by Fred cook for the mobile phone this week. Our listener is Mike and Mike is an engineer from barossa nursery Good luck trying to get that into a song Fred
Fred Cooke 26:01
are three bars in Austria there's nothing common there. Yeah engineer don't fear Mike hike I didn't know but all three I need an extra day on this.
Aidan Power 26:11
Well yeah, yeah 60 seconds and it's all down to Brian now to get at least three right Brian Are you read it? Yes, sir. All right, Brian, very best to look here. 60 seconds start. Now. Which kind of saw makes cuts in wood with a spinning circular blade whose angles can be adjusted. Circular Saw? Yes.
Fred Cooke 26:30
euro's England plays in white. France plays in blue. What color are the Belgium team? Red, yellow and black? or red with little black?
Aidan Power 26:41
Yeah, well done. Alright, question three. Which song starts with the words born down in a dead man's town. The first kick I took was when I hit Brown.
Brian Dillon 26:51
That's a Bruce Springsteen song is his most famous one. And he was born. Were born in New Jersey, born in New Jersey. Next question, Fred. German or American? American. Yeah. True. True or False bolts
Aidan Power 27:14
with forged heads are identical in strength to rods that have a knot welded to one end.
Time is up as a confusing question. The answer was false. But regardless of whether you got any any of them rise or not, you win for saying born in New Jersey. New Jersey. New Jersey.
