"Oh I'm sorry I didn't see you there, I was just constructing some stuff."
~ Construction Jim
Born and raised in a building site, Construction Jim is one half of the 'talented' duo known as The Construction Men.
As hard as it is to believe, in their early years The Construction Men were extraordinary builders; creating works such as Stonehenge, The Giza Pyramid Complex, The Great Wall of China and even once a birdhouse for a pigeon that Construction Gaz claimed was in love with him. Construction Jim was once quoted as saying that had The World Trade Center been built by The Construction Men, it would still be standing today.
Tragically though, both labourers sustained terrible brain injuries after getting outstandingly drunk one night and striking each other round the head with their sledgehammers 'for a laugh'. The aftermath of the incident was heart-rending. Both men lost their architectural talents, and Construction Gaz is now never able to recall Construction Jim's real name. Today they roam the streets of Daniel Brighton, skull indents covered with a hardhat and flat cap, just hoping and praying that someone will give them some work.
After being unsuccessful in their attempt to get the BBC's attention, they decided to sit down and watch the award winning documentary "The Disappearance of Daniel Bright". It was after previewing this video that something snapped in The Construction Men. They felt hopeful for the future of Daniel Brighton and consequently hopeful for their own. It was with this motivation that they were able to attain a BTEC in Bricklaying from City College and erect the glorious Beach House. ("The Construction Men", "The Eviction")
