The commitment, dedication and enthusiasm of the Speller Metcalfe team has meant that they have set the benchmark at which we measure all other contractors, and most fall well short.
The houses were designed to comply not only with the German based PassivHaus criteria but also the Code for Sustainable Homes level 6. One reason for selecting Speller Metcalfe was their commitment to the entire concept of building in an environmentally responsible way, as well as for their known professionalism. What we also received was a total commitment to support the project and to assist the employer to make it happen in line with their philosophy.
It felt like Speller Metcalfe went out of their way to help us understand how the building would work for us. Our input wasn't just acknowledged, it was actively integrated into the design plans - in Ofsted speak the Speller Metcalfe team has been 'Outstanding'!
The school is everything I dreamed it would be and I want you to know I understand and appreciate how much of that was down to your team. Speller Metcalfe has supported me every step of the way - all your staff have been exceptional in the way they have listened, explained, rearranged, changed, amended plans... everyone without exception."
The school were welcomed into the design process and were actively involved with the decision making. We were comforted by the help and support of the design team, led by Speller Metcalfe, in the way the design options were explained, what alternative choices were available and the relative merits of those choices.
Throughout all the projects undertaken, we have found Speller Metcalfe to be proactive and co-operative toward their planning and execution, delivering our requirements on schedule, within budget, and to the highest quality standards….we would not hesitate to recommend their services to others with similar needs.
We would like to thank you for your valuable support with Build a Bungalow project. We greatly appreciate that many of you not only donated materials but time and expertise, which resulted with two fully complete bungalows. Without your support the Young Apprentices would not have had this opportunity.
Whilst the initial preconstruction design for the building was for a BREEAM Very Good rating; Speller Metcalfe managed their build programme to achieve a final BREEAM Excellent rating. This was the first building within the University Precinct to achieve this.
I cannot commend Speller Metcalfe highly enough in terms of the way they handled the work on this ground-breaking carbon-neutral house….the technical innovations required would have daunted most contractors.
You were not just selected on your highly competitive tender price but on the high quality of the submission and the depth of understanding….providing value for money without compromising the specific design requirements we have relating to energy efficiency.
I have never worked with a more professional building team so obviously and explicitly focused on problem solving and productive partnerships. The ‘can-do’ attitude on site has been refreshing, and the transparency and openness in your working practices has been a breath of fresh air.
I had no experience of organising a build and to have you guiding me through the process was so reassuring to me and to the School’s Governors. I cannot think that there are many building companies where one of the directors is available on the end of a phone or in person on site usually with no notice and always a smile and a helpful word.
