What our clients have to say about our work.
The first major problem was the imminent collapse of a substantial Victorian internal wall (which could not have been foreseen) and that could have had catastrophic repercussions. The second being the discovery of floor joists that were failing despite having been previously repaired by others. The collapse of the floor could have resulted in critical damage to new boilers that had previously been installed below. Ben and Joe reacted to both situations with extreme professionalism and with constant communication with myself. They came up with both cost effective and safe solutions that were implemented.
The standard of work and the finished results has given the church modern facilities that are light, spacious and welcoming.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Ben and Joe (Mitchells Construction) for your building project.”
The club undertook a rigorous procedure to ensure the selection of the builder who would be supportive of the challenges of a project that was primarily funded via public grants.
The project itself faced many challenges including architectural oversights, the late discovery of a high voltage cable close to the building which cause significant delays and time pressure to be ready of the start of the cricket season. By maintaining a close working relationship with Mitchells we were able to overcome these and successfully deliver the project.
The new clubhouse is widely regarded as a huge success by the club, the local community and the regional council who were key stakeholders in the project.
Throughout the project Mitrchells Construction demonstrated exceptional levels of professionalism and formed a close working relationship with the club’s committee to ensure its successful delivery.
As the project was primality funding via public grants, cost management was an overriding consideration and Mitchells were instrumental in helping to identify innovative solutions that delivered cost efficiencies whilst maintaining quality,
The project faced many challenges and Mitchells were proactive with resolving these issues which allowed the committee to focus on the remaining aspects of its responsibility. Mitchells always made themselves available, including outside working hours and weekends, to answer questions and discuss any matters in relation to the project.”
I am so pleased Ben and Joe did the work as I just love the house and garden I now have. Not only do I love the result but neighbours and passers-by tell me they appreciate this lovely home that blends into the environment overlooking a nature reserve. They paid great attention to every detail and met and overcame the many challenges that this project presented. Neighbours commented on how tidy and polite my builders were especially important as building on a one-way track with access issues. Importantly they both advised me on products and were guided by what I wanted and where necessary helped me choose, obtained quotes etc. I presented many new challenges with my eco build such as a rainwater harvester which needed to be converted to a grey water system when deciding this after installation. Moving the sewage treatment plant when the high-water levels were discovered; Laying brick paths instead of Indian sandstone to enable a smaller carbon footprint, working with Natural England guidelines on bats (which have returned), the list goes on.
Now I am living in my new home I am really enjoying so much of what my house offers. To list a few: a warm home with low electricity bills, open plan living with ability to close off spaces through a pocket door etc, feeling a part of the landscape, a beautifully finished timber frame home with attention paid to interior and exterior finishes. With the growing challenges of climate change, dwindling resources and biodiversity loss I have a home for the future that uses minimal resources and is part of and aids its habitat.”
The works commenced on the date agreed and were completed on time within the six weeks as per schedule.
The work carried out was very professional and of a very high standard. The builders were always on time, organised, flexible, efficient, very polite and good humoured from providing the quote for the works to the completion of the project. The team were also willing to give sound advice during this time.
Ben Mitchell, Company Director and his team have done an excellent job and I would highly recommend Mitchells Construction without reservation when considering any future small or large building works.”
Mitchells Construction also carried out various external works in association with the project, a grass banked Ha-Ha wall and a Folly wall of traditional appearance together with a formal pond and related pathways.
We were and still are extremely pleased with the quality of the work and the final outcome. We have since asked them to build a front extension in oak framing and a first story bathroom with which we are also delighted.
I am happy to recommend the firm and Ben and Joe the people most involved in the works.”
