  • Living some distance at the time  from the development, we were pleased that Simon and his team provided regular updates on progress, consulted us on any specific issues as they were encountered and  project managed the development to meet tight time constraints. Helpful suggestions were made at the design stage, there was excellent liaison with our architect and we were delighted with the completion . A number of neighbours have, as a consequence enquired about work themselves, having seen the final outcome.

  • In writing this testimonial I have reflected on what I wished for in the person I chose to build the extension to my home. I wanted someone:

    • With high standards of work including materials used
    • Who would coordinate the work of the different trades and the various authorities eg building control
    • Who would resolve issues are they arose and liaise with me regarding the solution and any additional cost
    • Reliable so work was completed on schedule and as per the estimate
    • Who did not disappear to another job
    • Who was personable
    • I felt was trustworthy to be in my home

    Simon ticked all the boxes and we are very pleased with the result, so I would highly recommend him.
