In January 2011 the lower level of our house was flooded and we took the decision to use a builder of our own choice rather than rely on an insurance company nominated builder. We called tenders from four building companies and during tender discussions on the scope of work and pricing we become comfortable with both Nottingham Constructions technical knowledge and their competitive commercial package submitted. Nottingham Constructions were awarded the contract and have since completed the flood renovation work to our total satisfaction, to the extent that we awarded them extra work in terms of a complete remodelling our upstairs en suite and a roof extension at the rear of the house. During the course of this work we found that; • The work was carried out in an orderly and properly planned manner, • The on-site supervision by Nottingham Constructions project manager was honest, competent, reliable and extensive to monitor the quality of work being carried out and to coordinate subcontractor activities. This was the very type of work ethic we valued to manage the detailed complexity of the renovations. • We were very impressed with the high quality of their workforce and particularly the professional capability of the subcontractors they utilised to ensure the work was completed to a very high standard, • As could be expected, a few minor issues did arise during the course of these extensive works, however these were resolved quickly in an amiable and professional manner with both parties prepared to accept their commercial responsibilities. We are very proud not only of our house, but also that of Nottingham Constructions for the care they took in rebuilding our house for us and would have no hesitation in recommending them to any potential clients.
We engaged Nottingham Constructions in late 2007 to complete a renovation project on our home in Chapel Hill. Nottingham was selected from a group of 5 building companies who were approached for quoting on the job. Nottingham were not the cheapest quote (although not the most expensive), however were chosen because they appeared to have a far greater understanding of the project and its issues than other builders who submitted quotes for the job, and because we felt that after the dealings we had in the development of the project, and the detail in the quotes supplied, that Marcus Vass was a “straight shooter”. No project goes without its share of problems. I can say that all issues we had were dealt with in an entirely reasonable and professional manner and I believe to mutual satisfaction. Based on our experience, I would have no hesitation in recommending Nottingham Constructions.
