Meet the Team – Damian Cartmell




In this week’s Meet the Team series we chat to Damian one of our Furniture Installers here at Ultimate. Find out what makes Damian’s perfect weekend and what incredible new invention would make his job easier…


1. Let’s start from the beginning. In brief, describe the role of your job at Ultimate and what you do?

My role at Ultimate is Furniture Installations. I am responsible for ensuring that all furniture installations are delivered and installed to the clients brief and expectations.

2. All things considered, what type of work is most likely to spark the fire in your brain? What is your dream project?

All projects are dream projects no matter how large or small. They are all different in many ways and when the project is complete it is satisfying to see the end result and the client’s expectations fulfilled.

3. What incredible new invention would make your job easier and turbo charge your productivity?

A magic wand, so the furniture would always fit into a lift of any size or magically find its own way up the flights of stairs when there is no lift.

4. When all the hard work is over, what is the most satisfying aspect of your job at Ultimate?

Delivering and installing a complete project to specification, and within the timescale given, to a satisfied client.

Watch, listen and learn from your colleagues as their knowledge is priceless.

5. If you could send out just one message that sums up your industry, what would you say?

Challenging – in a forever changing industry, but ultimately very interesting and satisfying to see the end result.

6. If you could teach one lesson to your younger self about your area of work, what would it be?

Watch, listen and learn from your colleagues as their knowledge is priceless.

7. When a project presents you with a difficult challenge, what is your ‘go-to’ tactic for tackling it?

Understanding the issue and using my knowledge and experience in solving any on site challenges and creating a satisfactory outcome.

8. Finally, at the end of a long working week, what does your perfect weekend involve?

Total relaxation and spending some quality time with family and friends.
