About us tells HAROLDS OIKIA story.
A Construction, Education, Manufacturing and Accounting journey.
That uses knowledge and experience to create beautiful spaces to suit lifestyles.
By pulling ourselves up by the bootstraps to get the job done.
After an apprenticeship in masonry as a teenager, a flying career in education as a primary school and secondary school design and technology resistant materials teacher, bespoke joinery manufacturer and Sage accountant, Everton creates beautiful spaces using his accrued knowledge and experience skillset.
An avid table tennis and cricket player with a passion for integration and beautiful living spaces, Everton has a vast wealth of experience in construction, manufacturing, interior design, business and accounting.
Very early in his teaching and business experience he learnt integration creates efficiency, quality and consistency. As a matter of fact, non integration is very costly.
Whether it is writing integrated lesson plans; designing a bespoke door cutting list in excel; putting the cutting lists plus its stock items from global supplier chains into Sage; designing kitchen cabinets in Cabinet Vision using screen-to-machine technology to give a seamless customer, supplier and manufacturing experience; or creating an organisational structure for S&P Global TRUCOST to inform its Sage Accounting, Payroll and Forecasting framework… all these processes showed the power of integration.
