The Customer Story

Note: It is the responsibility of the account holder to obtain permission from the testimonial giver for any change to the text of a testimonial.

I already trusted Alan from the various work he had done in the past for me and I knew Ray was very good and experienced as well. They make a good combination.
When was the work done?
I'm an architect and I started using Alan about 7 or 8 years ago.

What type of work has been involved?
Initially it was tiling work, Alan was a subcontractor to a contractor that I used and he did some bathroom renovation jobs for me. Just before Christmas 2013, Alan and his building partner did a kitchen extension for me and it was completed to a very high standard.

How did you choose G&D Construction Projects?
I knew that Alan had expanded on his tiling business and gone into building. I already trusted Alan from the various work he had done in the past for me and I knew Ray was very good and experienced as well. They make a good combination.

I asked G&D to tender for the job and the price he quoted was the best I received. Another reason I chose G&D to do this job was the fact that the tiling work on the floor would make or break this job and I knew that Alan would do a good job on it. In fact as it turned out, he did a perfect job.

Had you definite ideas in mind before you talked to Alan and Ray?
Yes, indeed. I had a complete set of plans. Very minimalist was the order of the day, there's no ledges, no Victoriana, its completely streamlined.

Did Alan and Ray introduce new ideas?
Yes, they had some very innovative ideas.

How did the project run?
Extremely well. I must say that the work Alan and Ray did went perfectly and they followed my directions exactly.

What was the biggest benefit to you of using Alan Doyle?
The biggest benefit to me was having a builder on site that I could trust when I wasn't there. That's always a worry for architects- will the work that's not visible be done correctly. I knew I could rely on and trust Alan and Ray to follow to the letter the instructions that had been given with regards to detailing and the materials to be used.

Would you recommend G&D Construction Projects to others?
I would yes, indeed.

Any tips for other people?
Know your builder and insist on quality of work. The project itself often comes down to price. If you go cheap, that means you'll get cheap materials. But if the materials are expensive you can't afford to have them wasted. The builder really needs to have the proper expertise.
