The Wrekin Housing Trust is pleased to announce that we have recently completed the development at Wendover Mews, Hills Lane, Madeley, Telford. The contractor was J. Harper & Sons (Leominster) Ltd and we are delighted with all aspects of their work in the delivery of the scheme.
The works included the demolition of a derelict residential property and replacement with 5 new build, timber framed, mews style houses on a confined site surrounded by neighbouring residential properties, church property and a caravan park.
The construction phase was 10 months with the project completing ahead of the contractual date. Simon Deakin (Contracts Manager) and Mark Kelly (Site Manager) at J. Harper & Sons (Leominster) Ltd ensured that the build programme was run efficiently and that all trades completed works to a very high standard meaning that there were very few issues to resolve during the build phase and handover of properties was a smooth process.
Throughout the build phase the communication with Simon & Mark was excellent with detailed site progress reporting as well as informal open dialogue to deal with any minor queries which meant these were dealt with quickly and efficiently. They demonstrated a genuine willingness to work in partnership with the Trust to deliver the best possible homes for our tenants. They remained considerate to the neighbours at all times.
We are pleased to confirm that we would have no hesitation in recommending the use of J. Harper & Sons (Leominster) Ltd on any future project.
I would like to pass on my thanks for the schemes completed recently at Hilton Road and Monmouth Drive.
[The team] have coped really well and have delivered an excellent product of which the client and tenants are happy with. [We] really enjoyed working with Harpers and hoping to work with Harpers again soon.
I confirm that Harper Group Construction Limited undertook the project at Wellington for Wellington Pharmacy Limited to an excellent standard, providing supervision, management and construction services for the project. Attention to the client’s requirements, working within an existing building whilst occupied and working to tight deadlines and phases, was handled with diligence and precision by Harper Group Construction Limited. The project was completed on time and additional works were added to the satisfaction of the client beyond the Contract requirements.
We are very pleased with the completed houses and feedback from the agents and potential purchasers on the finishes has been very positive. We have found your site personnel, site managers and support team all to be very accommodating and only too willing to work with us and the existing residents on the development. During the construction, we have received many comments from local neighbours and shop owners etc. about how polite your staff are and how well run the site has been.
We very much look forward to working with you again and are more than happy to provide any future references you may require.
The scheme was completed on time, within budget and finished to a very high standard. As a result, I have invited colleagues and customers to visit and inspect the properties with complete confidence that they will be impressed with what they see. Whilst the finished product is of great importance to us, more importantly, it might be argued from my perspective as the client, is the manner in which the scheme has been delivered. It is difficult to highlight any individual: Mike Harvey, Nick Bates, Garry Godsall, Nick Davies and Matt Groves, all conducted themselves with professional, customer focused, positive and collaborative attitudes throughout the project.
Overall, I have no hesitation in recommending J.Harper & Sons (Leominster) Ltd. This is an outstanding example of collaborative working which has produced a fabulous development scheme, which also has been a positive experience to work on. I rarely get an opportunity to be so freely complimentary. In fact, it has been many years since I have been compelled to write in such terms.
