The Pacy and Wheatley team assigned to building our brand new ‘state of the art’ Sixth Form building was extremely professional throughout. It can be difficult working in an area where there are a large number of young people, but they were very conscientious regarding the safety of both pupils and staff. The quality of workmanship and adherence to the construction schedule meant that we were delighted with the finished project.
We would recommend Pacy and Wheatley without reservation to anyone contemplating undertaking such a project.
