Testimonial – Shaftesbury House
We engaged AJP in a large extension and refurbishment to our domestic property, which comprised a new, enlarged kitchen, family room and orangery as well as major alterations to our master bedroom. The project was scheduled to take 5 months and had a budget commensurate with its scale.
Before work commenced we were immediately struck by the professionalism of Richard in the way that they prepared and presented their quotation. The quotation ran to 10 pages, with a detailed specification and prices broken down in appropriate detail. The specification comprised minimal assumptions as Richard had taken the trouble to thoroughly survey the site and understand our requirements. AJP were not the cheapest quotation we received but their approach gave us confidence that we could work together with minimal surprises and that communication would be clear and precise.
Their attitude was extremely professional and entirely consistent with what we were looking for.
Their approach when work commenced did not disappoint. Richard was our point of contact and he project managed the work with great diligence. As an example Richard would email me every week summarizing the work done, setting out the priorities for the next week and re-confirming the completion date. Richard and his team were refreshingly tidy and were always very considerate towards our needs as we continued to live on-site whilst work went on around us.
The quality of work undertaken by AJP was excellent and exceeded our expectations. We had other contractors on-site at the same time that were equally impressed by the quality of their work. The whole project was completed on time, on budget and with no surprises. Post completion, there were a couple of trivial snagging queries, which Richard dealt with as soon as they arose.
Overall, we would have no hesitation in recommending AJP and have subsequently re-engaged Richard to undertake further work. Our experience has demonstrated that the quality of AJP’s work is excellent but just as importantly so is their professionalism, communication and reliability. We firmly believe that you can have confidence in their abilities to deliver a great result.
