See what some people had to say about us...

 

Mark O’Connor, Sales Administrator for Microsearch

“The business has been experiencing an extensive period of growth, so we felt it was time to further expand our facilities to increase our testing capabilities. The new laboratory will be used for our next day nutritional and allergen testing, and separately has allowed us to double the amount of space we can dedicate to microbiological testing. We enjoyed working with Claughtons on this project, they continued to meet our expectations and deliver at every stage. We are particularly impressed with the quality of materials and Claughtons’ craftsmanship – the new laboratory looks great and will definitely help our business to grow.”

Mark Blenkinsop, Regional Facilities Manager for KC

“The aim of the project was to create a fresh new office for our finance team, who were being brought under one roof for the very first time. We wanted the office to be bright, modern and airy – and Claughtons have delivered just that. The process of working with Claughtons was smooth and efficient and they delivered on time at quite short notice.  Our staff think the new offices are fantastic and the colour palate is exactly what we were looking for – it looks great!”

Mark Boothby, Construction Manager for Sewell Construction:

“We worked with Claughtons on the Kingswood Parks Primary School project where they were contracted to provide the fixed furniture and equipment (FF&E) for the new school whilst also managing the FF&E budget for the project.  They were very proactive, bringing a wealth of experience to the project and suggesting different solutions to the school users ‘preferred layouts during design development and whilst the installation took place. We found the team on site to be very amenable and efficient in their work ensuring our programme was met on time and in a safe manner.”

John Johnson, Managing Director at Your Green Deal Provider:

“The whole process was really good. Claughtons are a local business, manufacture their own products and provided us with an excellent service. Our office was an empty shell so it was really exciting to see it all come together. As a firm we’ve always had the intention to move to a bigger building and now we have an office space which will help us continue to grow and look forward to the future.”
