Vale Southern have completed the first phase of the refurbishment 3 blocks of flats owned and run by Portsmouth City Council in the Havant and Waterlooville area to an exceedingly good standard and have achieved this on time. Residents were relocated into prepared decant flats and returned into their newly completed flats within the tight timescales prescribed within the contract in a caring and sympathetic manner. It was lovely to see the happy smiling faces of the residents as they moved from their small 70’s style studio flats into their lovely new one bed flats incorporating wet-rooms, and with lounges/diners and fully equipped kitchens, all superbly installed by Vale Southern paying due account to the special needs of particular residents as the project progressed. On completion of the final section of the first block many residents were overheard congratulating Vales on having managed to undertake the project in an existing occupied building, with relatively minimal disturbance to their daily lives. Well done Vales.
Thank you for everything you have done in giving us the much needed space and something that will help this family immensely.
Just to say a big thank you for all the superb work your company carried out on our science classroom refurbishment.
Our staff and pupils are now enjoying their new facilities, which we were proud to showcase on our open evenings.
The team of workers, managed by a great site manager were very competent and worked alongside us during a very difficult time of flooding here at the school.
We greatly appreciate the excellent service you provided and would not hesitate to use your company again in the future.
Thank you so much for an excellent job, completed both to high standards and on time.
The governors, staff and children are delighted with the transformation, particularly in the year 5 toilets.
It has been a pleasure working with Vales and I would be to recommend you to other schools as well as use your services again in the future if the opportunity arises.
a formal thanks to you and all your team on our first new Toby baby taking us onto the next stage of the expansion journey.!
Overall an excellent job, very pleasing and well thought through , and a super opening day yesterday.!
I'm sure there will be learning's as ever, but I can tell we've got a winner here and in the template going forward.
We have used Vales builders for our house building project which has recently been completed.
They were one of 4 contractors to tender for the job IRO one million pounds.
We chose Vale to do the work for a number or reasons; I went and looked at one of their previous jobs, they were reasonably competitive, they had worked on some significant projects and I felt that I could work with them as individuals.
The project took roughly a year in build, the contract ran smoothly. Any issues or problems were dealt with in a civilised way between architect, client and builder. A very competent site manager was allocated to the job, it was kept clean and tidy in all weathers, and the standard of build and finish is first class. Vales have been pro-active and helpful throughout. I would certainly use them again myself and do not hesitate in recommending them as a contractor.
I can fully recommend Vale Builders Southern Limited who have acted as Principal contractor on six projects carried out over the last 4 years.
Their overall performance on all these projects has been excellent with their collaborative approach to projects being outstanding.
They have a great understanding of building matters and will always offer a solution to a problem which is testament to their highly professional staff. Management of subcontractors is very good and they have developed good working relationships with both mechanical and electrical sub-contractors on the Hampshire County Council approved lists.
The work is delivered on time and to budget and they adopt a very professional and fair attitude in dealing with variations. They are not a claims conscious contractor and their focus is always delivering what the client wants and can afford.
The projects delivered to-date have been both new build and refurbishment/alteration works. New build has included the construction of new office suites and meeting rooms for Hampshire Scientific Services where our most recent project has involved the creation and refurbishment of laboratory suites.
These projects have been heavily serviced for both forensic investigative work, blood sampling/DNA, food testing and asbestos sampling.
Refurbishment works have included the complete asbestos strip and upgrading of school sports halls which have included the complete re-cladding of both walls and roofs and internal re-modelling with new specialist sports floors.
The standard of workmanship is high and all the clients to-date have returned positive feedback.
