"This reference is being provided as a result of my experience in researching, appointing and working with Ecotec Design and Build Limited - I am happy to provide this as my experience throughout the process has been exceptional.  I am currently at “first fix” stage of building a bespoke house and separate garage on a site which is difficult to access, where extreme care has to be exercised in the movement of materials and plant.

The team at Ecotec dealt with the initial enquiry, the sales process and are acting as main contractors on site.  Their approach to the negotiation, contract pricing and practical work has been a model for the industry, with a strong focus on customer service and high quality work.

It is fair to say that they have gone above and beyond what is required of them in simple contractual terms, in order to ensure progress and a high standard of work are delivered.  Their liaison with subcontractors appointed by me has been just as exemplary.

Ecotec promised that most of the work would be carried out by a directly employed workforce with subcontractors used only where real value could be added, and I’m pleased to confirm this has been the case.

They are not too “contractual” but pay due attention to the areas that matter - monthly valuations for stage payments have been agreed without query to date.

The team’s "can do attitude” is refreshing making them a joy to work with, and it is with this in mind that I feel very comfortable to provide a positive reference for this very professional organisation."
