– Private client, London

‘Hawkespur has worked on a number of building projects at Lyndhurst House School, and we have found their work to be excellent. The Project Manager came to discuss the work beforehand and agreed when the work was to be done, and how long it would take. It was vitally important that the work was completed on time. When Hawkespur was given the contract to refit and make all of our doors fully compliant with fire regulations, this work was completed to the highest standards and within tight timescales. They were also able to work with the specifications of outside professionals. We shall certainly be using them again on other general building projects. I am very happy to provide any further information required.’

– Head, Independent Preparatory School, London

‘Hawkespur Ltd has carried out many building projects and much maintenance for this large independent school in Hampstead. The projects have been carried out in an exemplary manner, always on time, properly supervised and to a very high standard. Just this summer (2014), Hawkespur carried out a major project, which was very time-sensitive, the despatch of which was first-class. Prices quoted have always been maintained, except in cases where we have asked for extras or a change to a more costly specification. Projects are well run, well supervised and we have found the management to be approachable and very easy to deal with. The company has always provided documentation relating to compliance and safety as required and we have been thoroughly satisfied with them. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any further queries.’
