Testimonials

"Whilst there have been some tricky hurdles to get over, all members of Feltham's staff have been as accommodating as possible and have in my opinion gone that extra mile on occasion, when they could have refused. The Contracts Managers have been proactive in responding to queries and responding to complaints from local neighbours. Overall I am happy with the outcome of the schemes and would be happy to recommend Feltham Construction for similar projects." - Project Manager at  A2Dominion Group.

"It’s a shame you don’t have “excellent” as a category, as many of the scores would have said this. The performance in particular of the Site Manger and the Contracts  Manager, together with the Managing Surveyor was excellent – no issues on communication, timeliness, attention to detail or anything else. We would happily re-engage them on another suitable projects."  - Bursar at Queen Anne's School, Reading.

"Feltham performed very well on this complex building and were particularly helpful in squeezing time frames by enabling early access to theatre fit out specialists who were outside their contract and in catching up on delays caused by design changes etc.  They were also exemplary in their understanding and performance in meeting the particular needs in a school environment."    -Bursar at Pipers Corner School, High Wycombe.

"The School is delighted by the standard of finish on the new Project. It was a complex site, within the middle of  very busy working School, which was diligently managed and developed with good communication at all times." - School Surveyor at Magdalen College School, Oxford.
