What Our Clients Say

COVID-19 Company Statement


We are trying our best during these difficult times and are following the advice of the Government, as and when it is announced.

The aim is to continue and complete projects whilst we are legally allowed to do so; however the safety for our Staff, Clients and Families remains priority.


At present we are trying to continue working, to honour local projects & timescales as and where we can. Please be patient if we need to make changes, if a total lockdown is imminent, as you will appreciate our workload for this year was already carefully planned before the impact of Covid-19.


We will be following the strict social distancing guidelines and expect our Clients to do the same. If any of our team develop symptoms, we will of course cease work for a given period of time and we expect our Clients to notify us if they have the same.
