  • Removal of 400 sq metres mezzanine floor

  • Warehouse floor repairs / making good
  • Removal of office partitioning
  • Removal of a large galvanised steel building
  • Repair cladding to the roof

Amazing Saving

From the original claim from the landlord it later transpired that we saved the client in excess £100,000.00, the remainder of the works were cash settled by the tenant. All completed within a very tight time scale. Email received after completion from the Operations Director.

Great job Andrew. The timescale you carried the work out in has been terrific.

Thanks Frankie
