“The extension to our 1950’s cottage was something we’d dreamt about for many years and its seamless implementation has made a huge, positive impact on our lives.

John was the consummate, professional manager throughout all aspects of the project. From the very beginning he was completely open and honest about costs and timelines. As a result we had no major surprises or over-runs – everything was completed on time and within budget. John implicitly understood our needs and helped throughout the build to cut costs wherever it was possible. And he always managed his team, the contractors and external suppliers with respect, showing leadership throughout, whilst also managing other major projects.

But it was his focus on quality that impressed us during the course of the construction and which makes our living space such a joy now. His team were skilled craftspeople who always took pride in their work and understood the materials they worked with. These are the kinds of people he will always gather together because quality is obviously John’s main priority.”
