“The project was carried out during holidays and term time which required close discussion and negotiation between client and contractor. With very tight time schedules being imposed by the client to ensure minimal disruption to classes and college life in general, it became a balancing act which d+b managed well without a hitch while maintaining the quality finish required throughout the project. During the project restrictions were placed upon d+b about noise, access to site and working times, all of which were agreed and managed without impinging upon the programme or completion dates.


During all the works the college and d+b have worked very closely together to ensure that we stay on target, the working relationship has been one of the best I haveencountered with nothing being too much trouble.

In short, as client, this has been one of the most complex but easiest projects I have done for the college, they have turned my old concrete eyesore into what appears to be a brand new building, I couldn’t be happier”.
