I would like to say that your staff we have dealt with have been hard working, professional and extremely pleasant, and we are really pleased with the work you have done.

"Just to say a big thank you for organising the work over the holiday. The classroom is amazing! They didn't have to leave a pillar so the classroom looks so much bigger. They finished in four days and were really nice fellas. They cleaned up and appreciated how the staff had cleared the room for them. They have to pop back to finish the painting as the plaster was still wet. The nursery steps have been completed too which is good. The boiler room has been painted. All in all a busy week with some excellent results. Thank you again."Shire Services
"I have been working with Scott Gerrard at the Mardol House building for the past 12 months. I need to let you know it has been a total pleasure.

I have found him to be very thorough in his advice and explanations. Scott is a credit to your service."Shire Services

“We have been using PSG for the facilities management of our commercial office in the middle of town, and are pleased with the decision. It gives us a single point of contact for anything that needs doing to the building, from simple lighting faults to moving air-conditioning units around. It’s much easier than having a long list of tradespeople to ring around yourself as they take all of the organising away for you, and for a modest management fee. We would have no hesitation in recommending them to other similar privately owned organisations.”David Parry, Wellmeadow

I would like to extend our thanks to you for the support we have had over the past few years and for the investment at the college. The Science laboratory refurbishment, PE changing rooms refurbishment, the toilet refurbishment and works in the English area, the new roof, ceilings and lights in the French rooms and the new carpet in the main corridor have had a huge impact on the educational environment at the school and is really appreciated by both students and staff. We await to see the impact the new boilers and control panel will have on the school heating and budget".Bishops Castle Community College

The support and advice from the Local Authority and the contractors has been much appreciated and I personally did not imagine for one minute that the project would be as stress-free as it has been!

"I just wanted to write and express my thanks to you and your team for the work you did this year on our new D&T classroom.
As Head of Design & Technology, I am very pleased with the final outcome and it is already having a very position effect on the teaching and learning in our resistant materials classes. I know that my colleague Phil Gardner; who is based in the room, is also very pleased with the outcome. The feedback I received on open evening last week was glowing.
Working closely with Suzanne and the team has meant that the final classroom is almost exactly what I wanted from our initial meetings. The management of the scheme has been exemplary, and despite the usual unforeseen problems which one expects, I always felt that the team understood our requirements, and that they never compromise on the core specification.
I have been in a number of new schools recently and I can honestly say that this facility is as good as, if not better than anything else I have seen.
Please pass on my gratitude to your team, and if I can be of any help to any other school who are building or re-fitting a workshop, then please don't hesitate to pass on my details."Stephen Cox, Head of Design & Technology, Meole Brace School
"I would like to make you aware of how hard Daniel and the builders have worked this summer, I am sure you know this but it is always nice to hear it from someone else!
I am really pleased with the building work and the finish, the contractors have been exceptional and I am thoroughly happy. I know this has been also down to the time and commitment from Daniel at Oakmeadow and ensuring that it has been kept on track.
The only disappointment was the structural engineering amendment made, it was a shame this wasn’t identified in the assessment/inspection. However I believe Daniel is pursuing this for us.
Thank you to all involved. We have a fantastic new area now."Carla, Oakmeadow Primary School

I met Alastair there first thing and everything was in good order. He is now looking after the snag list. I have been very impressed with Alastair’s approach to this job. The timescale of the project put quite a bit of pressure on him, which he managed with patience, humour and diligence.

'Thank you so much for planning and then coordinating the work over the summer.
I spent time in a whole school assembly this morning talking about the work completed over the summer and how pleased we were with it. The sheer volume of work is amazing (year 1 toilets, year 1 walls and windows, new carpets, year 2 decoration, corridor decoration and car park drainage).
All of the work was completed on time and exactly matched our specifications. The contractors that were employed all worked in a professional way to complete the work.
As we have discussed before, I strongly feel that detailed planning is key to success. Thank you for all the work you did with me in the early spring in preparation for this work.
Please pass on my specific thanks to Justin and Nick.'

Once again I appreciate everything you have sorted out for me. You are a star!

'I just wanted to drop you a quick note to give you some feedback on PSG’s involvement in the above project. I am never shy to criticise when I don’t believe something is done right, as you know, but I am equally quick to offer praise for good work!
I have been very impressed and happy with PSG’s contribution to the Greenacres Supported Living project, I’m particularly pleased at the ambition they have shown in embracing the Council’s objectives of reducing carbon emissions and ultimately aiming to be carbon neutral by 2030. Proposing Passivhaus standard for this kind of project was a big leap and one I am delighted they have made, it has also been positively received by officers in Adult Social Care and the local member. Proposing Passivhaus measures for the school projects they’re currently working on is even more ambitious and just as warmly received!
I just wanted you to be aware of the good work they’re doing. Many thanks'Member, Adult Social Care

He has been a great ambassador for the council, working during very difficult times, first the floods and then the Covid pandemic, all with the utmost professionalism. He truly is a great asset to the council, and I for one would not have been able to manage the project without his support.
