Candour Ltd - Testimonials

Below are some testimonials received on recent projects.

"We would like to recommend the firm of Candour to anyone looking for a good construction company.

We have recently come to the end of a 7 month, £700,000 plus refurbishment of our home. This was a top-to-bottom transformation following the innovative designs of our architect for two extensions and various layout changes, with top quality joinery, fittings and finishes throughout.

It also involved new and overhauled roofing, gutters, pipes and drains, rebuilding chimney stacks, installing a new heating and hot water system with under floor heating, new lighting throughout, new bathrooms throughout, new windows, a two-way fireplace, new laundry area, a high-tech audiovisual system, new terrace and electronic cedar-wood gates. The list goes on.

Candour were asked to work with our architect and our quantity surveyor, and from day one they organised and ran the work in a highly professional manner which surpassed all our expectations. With regular meetings for all the key players, ourselves included, and a cIear programme of works, communication was excellent, and this was key to why this job was so successful. Of course, some things did not go as expected, but it was at these times probably that Candour were at their best. Again, clear communication and explanation of our options kept things moving on. Whatever was happening, Nick and Martin displayed a tireless dedication to doing the job well, and Martin's catchphrase was 'It's got to be right'! Nothing was too much trouble.

We now have what we consider to be a stunning home, finished close to budget and pretty much on time, for what we originally thought was a highly ambitious schedule.

The greatest tribute we can pay Candour is that by the end of the job the whole team was not just still speaking but Singing each others' praises."

"I can confirm that I have worked with Candour Ltd since their formation and have known and worked with Martin Fry since 2002. During this time they have been engaged on a number of projects for me all of which have been completed on time and within budget. The proactive approach from Martin, together with his site managers, ensured that the projects ran smoothly from start to completion.

I can confidently recommend Candour Ltd as a solid and reliable contractor and consider them to be experts in their field."

"Just a short note of thanks for your recent smooth handover of the above project. The Client is absolutely delighted with the quality of the completed works.

We have now done several projects together and it has been a pleasure working with you and Martin. Your project management is excellent, and your attention to detail at all stages ensures that we deliver a great end product to our Clients. We are particularly pleased with the new bathrooms and cloakroom on this project, and we are grateful for your assistance in the setting-out of the joinery and marble in these limited spaces. Furthermore the project was completed on time which the Client was extremely pleased with.

Thank you once again for your hard work.  We look forward to working with you on future projects."
