“Excellent quality and workmanship, excellent site management, well run site”
P. Lewin, Kingsway Primary Care Centre & Trust
The project proceeded very smoothly and it was rewarding working together. Team work was to the fore throughout the project
Philip Stanyon, Beech Hill Methodist Centre
We were very happy with all aspects of Gray & Sons Builders’ work on the Design & Build contract for Beech Hill Methodist Church & Primary Care Centre in Luton.
It was a complicated site, falling over 3 metres diagonally from corner to corner, but Gray & Sons rose to the challenge and produced high quality workmanship, resulting in an excellently finished building, both inside and out.
Peter Trower, The Tooley & Foster Partnership
“I have used your company over the past two years and have found your work to be excellent, well organised and competitively priced.”
Alan Payne, Southways Early Learning Centre, Tewin Cowper CofE Primary School, Great Gaddesden CofE Primary School
“You have carried out the work to a high standard. In particular the extension work involved breaking into the existing structure in several places and working in close proximity to existing classrooms and students. As much of this major work was carried out during term time you have managed the whole process with due regards to Health & Safety and the particular problems when working in an occupied school. Project management remained flexible around the needs of the school day and the project was completed on schedule and within budget.”
Tony Cella, Queensbury School, Dunstable
“It is a pleasure to work with professional, honest and hard working people in the completion of this project.”
Laura Callaghan, St Josephs School
“This was a project that was challenging from both technical and practical perspectives and one which your company took on at very short notice. Additionally no-one foresaw the extent to which the scope of the project would increase during the first half of its duration. Your staff and workforce have worked hard too achieve the accuracy and finish that we required in the time that was allowed in spite of the inclement weather that pervaded the week. Sometimes we can be too demanding and expect too much but, what-ever we have asked, you have “pulled out all the stops” on this one and met our expectations.”
Cliff Robertson, Millbrook Proving Ground
“I would firstly like to say having visited site last week, as works are now complete, that both Project Manager Gary Silver and I have been thoroughly impressed at the professional management of your team throughout this project. Whilst there may have been some unavoidable delays outside of your control, the overall Building Contract has run very smoothly. I would therefore like to thank you and your whole team for all the efforts that have been put into the job, which definitely shows in the finished building.”
Graham Kershberg, Kershberg & Company
“May I take this opportunity to thank you and all involved with the project for your attention and diligence in dealing with a complex and difficult building operation. It has received much praise from the client both in the manner it was carried out and the quality of the end product.”
Philip W Bellew RIBA, West Wady Architects & Town Planning
“Gray & Sons completed the works to the new Medical Centre in accordance with our programme and our budget to provide a quality medical facility for Elstow”
Peter Walker, Moult Walker Chartered Surveyors
