The quality and standard of finish is excellent and the completed scheme, built in sensitive and difficult circumstances, is a credit to Wildgoose Construction. Your entire team deserve recognition. Resolving minor conflicts quickly when necessary…was essential and your site managers have responded to the occasional challenges on site in a thoroughly professional manner.
Ian Clyde – Development Manager Acclaim Housing Group Ltd
I wanted to personally thank you (Steve Duckmanton) and your team for the detailed input on this site; it presented some new challenges that you all tackled very professionally together to achieve the desired Planning and Vendor approvals.
Please pass on my personal thanks to everyone.
David Shaw – Partner at Rider Levett Bucknall
A great team of guys to work with (at Ashgate Medical Practice, Chesterfield).
Wildgoose should be extremely proud of their track record and the dedication given by everyone they employ.
Kate Chilton – Practice Director at Ashgate Medical Practice
I wanted to offer some praise for the performance of Tony Wright your Customer Care Manager.
Working in tenanted flats is difficult enough, but Tony dealt with the problems incredibly well. Never, at any point did Tony contact me with a view to simply informing me of another problem, he would always follow this up with a solution.
The way in which Tony attacked the problem was a credit to himself and Wildgoose Construction.
I tend to find that we get criticised an awful lot more than praised and this was certainly a case where praise is well deserved.
Howard Young – Architect at South Yorkshire Housing Association
Could you please pass on our thanks, and my personal thanks, to Dave Hare and Mark Winstanley who did such a great job for us and for Open Door, at the Open Door Drop-In Centre in Grimsby.
David Hartshorne – Chief Operating Officer at Ashley House PLC
I would just like to say that the building handover went very well. Mark (Winstanley) had everything beautifully organised for us and the process was thorough and straightforward. The manuals are excellent and I only wish that we had something similar for all of our buildings.
The building looks fantastic!
Caroline Price – The Big Life Group
CLA worked successfully with Wildgoose Construction on a Design & Build contract to construct a 75 bed Care Home in Macclesfield for nursing and dementia care.
We appreciated the team approach and good working relationship, in particular the Contracts Manager and site staff who showed a clear understanding of the design concept and were proactive in addressing the construction related issues to the design brief.
Wildgoose Construction kept the site operational under difficult circumstances and when the Client required changes to the contract. These were managed and incorporated within the programme with minimum disruption.
Contract administration was efficient at all times with Wildgoose Construction staff using their initiative well. They proved to be professional and helpful in dealings with ourselves and a demanding Client.
Keith O’Hara – Architect Condy & Lofthouse Ltd
In my experience of working with Wildgoose, they are conscientious and take pride in the work that they produce. They have always shown a proactive approach to the schemes and worked with ourselves to achieve the best possible outcomes and solutions. On all the schemes I have undertaken with them, they have taken part in the Considerate Constructor’s scheme and achieved good ratings on all occasions. I have found them to be fair, accommodating and proactive in their approach … and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them, based on my experiences with them.
James Cox – Architect Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council
I would like to take this opportunity to offer my congratulations and thanks to Wildgoose construction on a first class piece of work. I am extremely impressed by the contractors/craftsmen working under the management and supervision of your site manager, their work show them to be highly skilled, well motivated and they have been respectful and courteous to all at all times.
Jane Abrams – Registered Unit Manager, Parkwood Centre, Derbyshire County Council
Throughout the 10-month construction of the Alfreton Parkwood development, your site manager exhibited all of the best qualities a site manager should have at his disposal – knowledge, application, equanimity, professionalism and the ability to be proactive with a ‘can do’ attitude. “As completed, the building is a total success, and has been acclaimed by Derbyshire County Council, end users and everyone else who has had cause to visit the site. “I understand the building is to be put forward for both BDA and RICS recognition.
Paul Edwards – Architect, Derbyshire County Council
Your site manager was always efficient in ensuring we always had all of the necessary information and was corteous when entering the school to negotiate actions. He was considerate in our requests for support over some of the necessary work within the school building where pupils and staff work. It has been a pleasure to work with your company
Anne Hooley – Headteacher
It was a pleasure working with the Wildgoose team, as the project was carried out in a positive ‘can do’ way and achieved the true spirit of a partnership agreement. I would be pleased to recommend Wildgoose for similar projects
Bill Finn – Head of Property
Wildgoose Construction have been excellent throughout the building work. The children have always come first in terms of health and safety and causing them minimum disruption. the workforce were particularly understanding thhroughout the test period in May – work continued, but you could have heard a pin drop.
Darren Clegg – Headteacher
The contract had significant practical difficulties on site which were addressed in a positive manner by all personnel representing Wildgoose, always with the good of the job in mind. I would recommend Wildgoose highly to any client or design team based upon the performance on the project and the personable contribution of the people involved
Peter Clash – Clash Architects
As your team prepares to exit Lutyens Court, we would would like to place on record our thanks to Wildgoose. It’s been nearly a year since we first visited the site and we have been happy with our relationship with Wildgoose throughout.
We would like to thank Tim and Dave for their help and professionalism. There have been problems – no more than one would expect with a new build – but our concerns have been listened to and addressed. We would also like to thank Stacey who was very helpful throughout his period on site, and Ann for being so responsive, pleasant and efficient.
Anne and Kevin Buxton
I would like to take the opportunity to highlight to your company that, the team who I worked with on the Leicester Fire Station project were a credit to your company. The team were professional, amiable and motivated and Stacey’s attention to detail was superb and continues to be noted by everyone who works or visits the Station.
I would also like to add that the aftercare service received from Alan Elliott greatly reduced the protracted time and again was a credit to your company. He was thorough & proactive in rectify defects which meant the station remained fully operational.
The Station Manager and the Administration Assistant have made many positive comments about his workmanship and his helpful manner which I fully reiterate.”
Aleks Jankoff – LFRS
I would like to express my thanks to you for all of your hard work on the Kidderminster Medical Centre project.
The building looks really good and the Doctors are clearly very pleased with their new home. Your hard work in pulling together a challenging project has clearly been worth it in the execution of the design
Martin Scott. brp architects
I would confirm that Wildgoose completed a successful refurbishment to provide a specialist residential healthcare facility for our group, known as Warwick Lodge. Throughout the progress and phased completion of this project Wildgoose maintained a co-operative and professional approach and played a major part in the satisfactory outcome of the project…. I would very happily work with this contractor again and would recommend them.
Tom Wilson – Head of Property Castlebeck Care Ltd
I worked with Wildgoose Construction for eighteen months, who were appointed as main contractors, for the construction of a new Medical Centre on the Kidderminster Hospital site. The development required the demolition of five redundant building blocks.
The buildings included a nine storey accommodation block, and all required careful and considered demolition techniques due to their close proximity to operational wards, departments and public areas. The project also required the diversion of numerous building services, drainage and main electrical services. All the works were undertaken in a planned and professional way, with method statements and risk assessments completed in a timely manner.
The project was finished with no adverse effects at all on the running of the existing hospital site. I would have no hesitation in recommending Wildgoose Construction for future projects of a similar nature
