Director Graeme Millar

Graeme Millar has been actively working in the construction industry for over 30 years.

The majority of that time has been spent as Managing Director of Bain & Irvine Ltd Roofing contractors in Peebles.

Graeme became Managing Partner of Bain & Irvine in 1987 and has gradually built up his company to the force in the industry we know today.

The acknowledgement of the roofing industry to Bain & Irvine’s quality of workmanship was confirmed by the award of Slating & Tiling Roofing Contractors of the year (2009) at the National Federation of Roofing Contractors Scottish awards, Heritage Roofing award in 2010 and shortlisted for an award in the Heritage section at the National Federation of Roofing Contractors awards in London 2014.

During Graeme’s management of Bain & Irvine Ltd he was consistently being asked for his opinion on roofing matters specifically from the legal profession. His decision to instigate the setting up of an independent roofing consultancy business GMRC Partnership has been a huge success and the business has become acknowledged throughout the legal fraternity as an honest, independent view on all aspects of roofing ranging from advice on statutory notices, to expert witness appearances in the Scottish Courts.

He lists among his many clients, Shepherd & Wedderburn, HJB Gately, Balfour Manson, Simpson & Marwick, The NHBC, The N.F.R.C, Anderson Strathern, Dundas & Wilson, Police Scotland, Trading Standards and various Scottish charities.

Graeme is currently a Fellow and Governor of The Institute of Roofing, a former Chairman of the Scottish Region of the National Federation of Roofing Contractors, and is immediate past President of the N.F.R.C.  Included within his duties at the N.F.R.C is: chairing the Heritage Committee, chairing the Slating and Tiling Committee and also heading up the N.F.R.C Finance Committee.

Graeme has recently completed writing the N.F.R.C Standards for Best Scottish Slating Practice (Technical Bulletin 43) which, in his opinion, has been overlooked by the Standards Committees for many years.
