The Richard Grimes Snr Academy

Richard Grimes Snr was born in Carramore just outside Westport, County Mayo, Ireland, on the 14th July 1935. He came to England in the 1950’s and worked for Wates Construction before eventually becoming a plasterer and floor screeder. They were tough times but he was a very tough man. 

He excelled as an amateur boxer and was known as “the bull” due to his powerful build and fighting ability. He worked in the plastering and drylining sector of the construction industry for many years as the chief executive of one of the largest companies in the Midlands at that time, until his death in October 2004 after a long illness. 

Richard Grimes gave many young men the chance to become plasterers and dryliners, and now through the Richard Grimes Plastering Academy he will always be remembered for his contribution to the plastering trade. We know he would be happy to know young men and women are being trained in his name today, in the very skillful and hard to master, hand applied trade of plastering. The Training Academy is based at South Birmingham College’s Bordesley Green Campus.
