Craig served a 5 year apprenticeship with the well known building firm Whitaker and Birtwistle. When their partnership dissolved Craig carried on working with one of the partners for 14 years until the urge to run his own building company got too much. He struck out on his own and swiftly created a strong client base.

CSB now compromises of Craig Blood, the founder who has been in the building business for 19 years.
The companies Foreman is Alex Toothill who has a wealth of building experience gained through his life in the Yorkshire Dales. He specialises in traditional dry stone walling as well as wet walling. CSB is also committed to passing their hard earned expertise and to this end they have taken on a local lad as an apprentice. He currently works and studies Bricklaying at a local college but he will soon be moving onto plastering and other CSB specialities!

As part of being a Main Contractor CSB have built up a broad array of contacts. If your job needs an electrician, a joiner or a roofer, then CSB can find and hire a reliable one to make sure that you receive the best possible job.

CSB tend not to advertise, they dont need to as they get a lot of work through referrals and recommendations.

Craig intends the business to remain a small one, he doesn't want to expand the firm much further. The reasoning behind this is that he firmly believes that a small business is a friendly business. Each and every day spent on your job you'll see the same team, unlike some of the bigger players. This means you can see the hard work, effort and passion that CSB put into each and every one of their jobs.
