This project involved the demolition of an extension and the construction of a new three-storey ancillary hall to the existing Church building. Following our attainment of Preferred Contractor status we continued our previous involvement from first-stage tender by working with the Design Team to refine the details and costs until such time that the Client was happy to proceed further.
When the works began the careful planning and our early stage involvement began to bring demonstrable benefits to the Client, and enabled the continued full use of the existing Church building. We were well supported by an extremely experienced and competent Design Team and, together with the flexible approach of the Client, believe that collectively we have produced a project of which we can be justifiably proud.
I write to express our deepest thanks for the tremendous project you so successfully completed to the highest quality, on schedule and with the greatest co-operation we could have asked for, particularly as the site was very restricted for working around the remaining fully occupied church building in continual use throughout the work. Your staff were always courteous, helpful and patient in their Client liaison, seeking to limit disturbance to our continuing use of our premises. We were also delighted with the two-stage tender process, requiring trust and teamwork, which you delivered to budget and timescale. Thank you for such a competitive tender for our new hall project. All our visitors admire the building and its quality of workmanship.Richard Hackett, Christ Church Westbourne
