We were first introduced to Stephen Gardiner Construction Ltd (SGC), through recommendations from several architects, engineers and Quantity Surveyors. We carried out a huge amount of research on his product with previous projects built as well as understanding what his reputation was like pre & post build.
Following our initial meetings onwards, Stephen and his team have performed fantastically well in the design and build process. This was a complicated project with many third party consultants, who were all managed by Stephen. This could not have been done any better; the organization, approach and care undertaken have been of the highest standard.
What sticks out most is the fact that Stephen and his team actually care, this may seem like a strange statement, however their desire to make sure we were always informed and happy was paramount. Based on our previous experience with the building trade, this was more than a refreshing change. Stephen genuinely takes a keen interest in how the building is supposed to work and will proffer suggestions of betterment where they think this will benefit the client. They worked seamlessly with our architect’s, QS and building control to avoid any mishaps.
Of huge importance to us was how they programmed the build and maintained a high knowledge of expenditure, so that we could be certain we all kept within the stipulated contract price. In tandem with this we can honestly say that Stephen and his team kept to their promise of delivering our home within our agreed time frame. This was all the more impressive when we consider the number of external factors which conspired against us!
Given this has been one of the most important things we as a family have embarked upon, we can honestly say it was a great and rewarding experience. Were we to do it again, I would have no hesitation getting SGC to do it for us.
