Clients and their agents are very pleased with the finished product and the fact that residents reported a well-managed project. Finished on-time and on budget.
It is also worthy of mention that, although this kind of work is disruptive and invasive, the feedback from the residents has been very complimentary, in particular, the conduct of PA Hollingworth staff and our site supervisor Mick Fry who has worked hard to service everyone’s needs whilst progressing through the job.
