"Farr & Roberts have completely refurbished our house. It has been transformed from a dated and somewhat neglected home into a brand new and up-to-the minute energy efficient home to be proud of."

“ln March 2011 we commissioned Farr & Roberts to build an artist's studio on to our property in Cookham Dean. The work involved demolishing a single-storey double garage and replacing it with a new, two-storey building, sympathetically designed to match the architecture of the existing main building. It comprised a double garage and store at ground level and a first-floor studio with large window areas, linked to the house's garden room via another linking room.

“From the very outset, we were impressed by the professionalism and expertise of the Farr & Roberts building team and the way in which the work was co-ordinated and managed. The site was always kept tidy and safe. We were kept fully informed of progress during frequent project meetings. The inevitable unexpected problems, such as delayed main window delivery from a third-party contractor, were always met with a very positive "can do" attitude to work around or expedite the problem and to complete the work to budget and time.

“We were especially pleased and impressed by the pride that the Farr & Roberts staff took in their work: bricklayers creating curved walls to a superb finish; joiners crafting doors and architraves to perfection and a surveyor who kept abreast of the build progress to the nearest millimetre, to mention but a few. As the building work progressed, we decided to carry out substantial additional work and this was efficiently integrated into the main body of the project.

“The work was always carried out carefully and with due consideration for our neighbours, with minimal noise and disruption during delivery of materials. The subcontractors that were used for plumbing and electrical services were also first-rate and we have used them subsequently for other work.

“We are delighted with the studio that Farr & Roberts have created for us. We strongly recommend their services and we will certainly use Farr & Roberts again for our future building work.”
