Phil has been terrific throughout the project and we are very impressed with him and the work that he has done leading the construction of the project. We are delighted with the outcome of the project.

The Company achieved a high standard of construction and finish in our project to extend the hospital. All staff, including Directors, Site Managers and Surveyors were easy to deal with, extremely professional and responsive. We would definitely use them again for any construction project in the future.

Colden Common Primary School

I cannot let the moment pass without writing to express my thanks and appreciation for the efforts you and your subcontractors made to achieve the successful completion of the extension to Colden Common Primary School. It was delivered on time and to a very high standard of workmanship. this was due in no small part to the helpful and collaborative approach of the site team, who were proactive in resolving problems, and who made every effort to keep the project on programme despite several setbacks. The finished building is a sensitive and well executed addition to an award winning Hampshire School. I would also like to give special mention to subcontractors Marco Glass, whose outstanding efforts to resolve the problems associated with the windows and high level pressings enabled us to remain on programme. Throughout the project your staff were always courteous and helpful towards the school, maintaining good communication. Consequently, the feedback from them has been excellent. I too found your team highly professional and a pleasure to work with. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend working with them again.

Langton Matravers

I believe the Team produced an outstanding design which integrates exceptionally well with the retained buildings and makes great use of the site topography and at the same time retains the street frontage. The mix of traditional and vernacular materials has provided a pleasing interpretation of the old Victorian buildings. Although delayed due to extended periods of inclement weather, the scheme was delivered to budget and, although a challenging design, the scheme is of the highest quality. Working with Drew over the challenging procurement period was genuinely easy and pleasurable, with the result that a rewarding outcome was achieved. During construction Drew worked to ensure it responded with practical solutions to some challenging requirements. This applied particularly to the structural elements. Drew also adopted a 'can-do' attitude, especially to co-ordination issues, and always solutions. Drew was very approachable, courteous and acted professionally at all times, and I would certainly recommend them for future projects.

Hengistbury Head

We are exceptionally pleased with the way the build went. The comments from the public range from 'beautifully designed and conceived' to 'one of the best things Bournemouth has ever done' - we have been overwhelmed with praise and messages of goodwill. Drews performed very well from the outset. When we had to value-engineer the project to get it within budget they were extremely helpful with advice and assistance. The Site Manager was courteous and informative, and throughout performance levels were excellent. The Winter of 2012-2013 was rather exceptional in terms of the prolonged cold conditions and, despite this, every effort was made by Drew Construction to keep the project on time. Attention to detail was excellent and there was always a good response to issues, unexpected problems and small areas of redesign/specification change. The overall build is of a high standard - the merging of the contemporary new build (ModCell straw bale design) with the barn conversion is excellent. As a Joint Project Leader I would definitely recommend Drew Construction for future projects.

Christ Church

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.

I have no hesitation in stating that DREW carried out the work to the highest standard with a good technical and management structure, which met with the aspirations of the Client. This Practice was involved throughout the site works and noted their care in achieving good standards of construction and resultant finishes. Monthly meetings were held to discuss the programme of works and the project was completed within the agreed time frame. The site was clean and well organised, despite the difficulties of working within the existing structure. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Company on any future projects.

Drew Construction accepted the restrictions of working in a busy school, and complied with them fully. The finished building reflects the care that was taken during construction, and any minor snags are being effectively dealt with.

I would like to take this opportunity, on behalf of my fellow Trustees at Oakhaven, to thank you and the Team at Drews for your input and hard work over the last three years, in helping us to develop Oakhaven Hospice. The work to refurbish the Day Hospice and administration offices in Pennington Chase, and the link inpatient wing to such a high standard has been greatly appreciated, and the Oakhaven Teams are enjoying working in the improved environments throughout all aspects of the service.

Lecture Theatre
Ringwood School

As an outstanding school and a National Teaching Academy we wanted to create a building with a high quality innovative design to support our work in improving the learner experience... We wanted to provide an 'intelligent building', responsive and flexible - one that places the learner experience first. We have certainly achieved that in all respects. The Lecture Hall will provide a very special resource for current and prospective students, staff and wider community groups. It really does have the 'wow' factor.

The Site Manager and his Team always went that extra mile with the works and the result is superb. We are very proud of our new school. Thank you!"

Can I take this opportunity to say thank you. We have a brilliant building which was built with good humour and co-operation by H H Drew. It was a very positive experience which I don't think is often said about build projects. It was a pleasure working with you and your colleagues.
