    High-performance replacement windows. Roofing works including extensive M&E. Concrete stabilisation, repair and coating.

“The University of Kent, engaged the services of d+b facades to undertake the external overcladding and replacement of windows to their 1960’s science block, known as the Ingram Building. Throughout our dealings with this company, but particularly during the construction stage, it became more apparent that d+b facades is a professional contractor, that place a great deal of importance on customer satisfaction, and strive hard to achieve this.

This work ethic, combined with a focused and efficient team on site, resulted in d+b facades delivering an aesthetically impressive, thermally efficient, modernised building, fifteen weeks ahead of the contracted programme

and within our predicted budget.  This is even more remarkable, when you consider that the building was fully occupied and operational throughout the entire contract period.

d+b facades is effective and efficient at what they do and I and the University of Kent as a whole, have been totally satisfied and impressed at their performance in delivering this project. I hope to utilise their services for similar schemes, in the future.”.
