A St Ives site manager has clocked up 40 years’ service at a design and build company.
Peter Durman, 63, joined Kent-based Clean Room Construction (CRC) in 1974 as a site foreman.
Since then he has managed projects across the continent, including in Belgium, Switzerland, Hungary, France and Spain.
His work also enabled him to meet Lana, his wife of 26 years, while working in Moscow in 1988.
He said: “Over the 40 years the business has changed dramatically.

“Whereas most of CRC’s jobs used to come from the defence and pharmaceutical sectors, we now have an extensive portfolio of customers spanning every corner of science and technology.
“Projects have become more and more sophisticated and the demand for quality cleanrooms for cutting-edge display technology, microelectronics, nanotechnology and other advanced or emerging technologies is continually growing.
