Just a short 45 years is what it takes to get to where Ian Duerdan is, after starting his plumbing career in 1972. Based in Oldham, Ian is proud of his career, having started off as an apprentice at the age of 15. He takes his job extremely seriously and rises to any challenge put in front of him, regardless of size. One project which impressed the judges was a £9.5million refurbishment of 119 flats across 15 floors, which had laid empty for two years. Ian oversaw the entire project from beginning to end.
