Triple crown for Darsey

Erith Contractors MD takes up role of NDTG Chairman.

The delegates at today’s annual general meeting of the National Demolition Training Group (NDTG) voted to elect Erith Contractors managing director David Darsey as chairman with McWilliam Demolition’s Craig McWilliam elected as vice-chairman.

It is the latest of many accolades for Darsey who has previously held the position of National Federation of Demolition Contractors’ president and is the outgoing president of the Institute of Demolition Engineers. He is also an honorary life vice president of the NFDC.

While it is unquestionably a proud moment for Darsey, it is a positive move also for the NDTG at a time when the NDTG faces a number of key challenges, not least the switch of competence card authorities. Darsey is not just a proven and vocal advocate of training across all demolition disciplines but he is a tough negotiator and will be capable of pursuing the wider industry’s agenda.
