We recently completed our first UK project in Pembrokeshire, West Wales (June 2019), building offices and a petroleum testing laboratory, requiring all kinds of M&E infrastructure to comply with Health, Safety and Environmental requirements. Work began early Jan 2019, and from the outset, it was very clear that Rob Charles and Paul Lloyd had everything under close control. From competitive pricing from suppliers to organising timings of other trades/contractors on site, their proactivity and commitment to fast track our project was clear to see and very reassuring, giving us peace of mind. Their collaborative working and client focus was definitely key to ensuring our build stayed on time and also on budget.

During our build, a few significant challenges occurred which could not have been foreseen, which had the potential to delay the project and/or blow the budget. The way that Lloyd & Gravell handled these challenges calmly and methodically, resolving them with the most cost-effective and timely solutions, was very impressive. We have found their workmanship to be of the highest standard, and it is clear that they have great pride and attention to detail in everything they do. We would happily recommend them for any project in the future. We are very grateful for our project being delivered both on time and within budget.
