What our Clients Say...

Currently awaiting updated Client Testimonials from 2009.

Project Showcase:

Chartwell House: Contracted by the National Trust to re-roof Winston Churchill’s house in Kent.This £100,000+ contract was an unusual test of our craftsmanship as the contract stipulated that we had to source hand-made clay tiles from the area (we had them made in Westerham). To make life interesting, no power tools or modern tools were allowed. We used the old Victorian tools for perfect authenticity.

The Oxford and Cambridge Club: Contracted by the club to create a roof garden while the rooms were in full occupancy. This was a complicated job in which all materials equipment and plants had to be delivered by crane. We erected a crane over the weekend to minimise disruption to traffic in Pall Mall and we were then able to take mixing machines, steel girders and asphalt to the work area without ever inconveniencing club guests. We are regularly brought in by the club to carry out maintenance works.

Park Place Business Centre: We were contracted to remove a giant 40-year-old central heating and air conditioning unit from this six-story building in St James Square. The unit weighed many tonnes and was too large to be dismantled and removed out the front door. Our solution was to take a large section of roof off then bring in a mobile industrial crane to remove the defunct unit and to crane in a new one and then replace the roof section. We did this over a weekend to minimise disruption to traffic and to the occupants of the business centre.

The Bucks Club: Contracted to carry out roof and external repair works on this 160-year-old gentleman’s dining club for over 150 years. All works had to be carried out without any disruption to diners and their guests. We scheduled our work around their key periods so we ceased working when lunches and dinners were being served. To ensure we replaced the lead roof and repaired damage to the building within the timescale stipulated, our staff worked seven days a week until completion.

All Saints Church: Contracted to restore this listed building in Kingston-upon-Thames using the original materials only. The most skilled part of this contract was replacing the old lime putty plaster on the walls. The lime putty contains horse hair, but not just any old horse hair - the lengths of the hairs have to be correct and the quantity of hair per batch of lime putty has to be exact, too. It took considerable research and experimentation to arrive at the perfect mix - which then took three weeks to dry and three layers needed to be applied.
