Testimonials

We were very sorry not to see you to thank you for the excellent job done and to say goodbye. As church members we were probably all dreading the prospect of the restoration and all the disruption. But it has been a really interesting experience and certainly a privilege to be able to examine the work as it has progressed. It has actually drawn the church community closer together and closer to the community too.

We have been truly impressed by the quality of the work done, and I endorse every thing Mark has said. George was always so willing to fit in with what we needed to do and we shall miss his cheery smile whenever we rolled up. We hope both of you will enjoy your next job just as much.

Muriel Pepler - Dorney St James the Less

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you, George and all the team who did such a wonderful job for us at St James the Less. We have been delighted with the quality and standard of workmanship on our building. I know we struck lucky when we gave you the job and you certainly didn’t let us down.

We are extremely grateful to you all, and hope to be able to work with you again perhaps in the future.

Mark - Dorney St James the Less

On behalf of St Edburg’s PCC and congregation I would like to express our  thanks to the on site team for their tremendous efforts last Friday to get the church ready for the celebration weekend. I know they were a bit disappointed that all the tasks just couldn’t be completed in time, but I can assure you that the work was very well received. Many compliments were given about the high standard of the work, and  everyone understood the time constraints which had applied.
We had a very successful weekend , which would not have been possible without the team’s willingness to go the extra mile. Many thanks.

Diana, St Edburg's PCC and Congregation

I set up an initial site meeting with Stuart Bailey from N&U to agree a specification for them to tender and then a couple of days later I got a call to say he’d like to meet me again on site.
The finished result is great and it has been very satisfying to reuse and repair so much of the original, which is exactly what we are all about.

Dave Watts, National Trust

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Jamie Ward (Norman & Underwood’s Site Manager) for all the quality work that he and his team have overseen during the course of this contract and for the high level of communication, cooperation and understanding of the Cathedrals day to day activities that have definitely made his life more difficult.

Robert Darling (works manager) - Southwark Cathedral

I would like to add my thanks to those of Robert. From our perspective it has gone so smoothly. Many thanks to Jamie and his team.

The Very Reverend Andrew Nunn Dean - Southwark Cathedral

Dear Mr. Castleman,
On behalf of the PCC and congregation of our church I should like to thank your Company for the work carried out over the past year.
Your team have been an absolute joy to work with and the final result is now the subject of many, many favourable comments.
It is difficult to single out individuals but Phil Semmens was absolutely outstanding throughout the project and Phil certainly guided the work with a very firm hand throughout – just the man we needed on our team.
– Once again, thank you – we could not have chosen better.

We were very pleased to learn that a good installer had secured the contact for this project. The care, skill and dedication of Norman & Underwood was evident from the outset, and has played a key role in making it a success. This really is a landmark project for everyone involved.
