What our clients say …
We are delighted that the new building was on schedule and best of all, has come in under budget, so our grateful thanks go to those who made this possible.
Mrs J Shore
Assistant Head, Minehead Middle School
A very successful project which despite a few difficulties and last minute changes finished early, under budget and the final account has already been agreed (before the end of defects – unheard of!).

Slade Parry, with specific reference to Justin Cox, has played a major role in supporting the College in delivering this project. As Project Manager Justin maintained excellent communications with me as the client representative – keeping me well informed about project progress and ensuring that I was aware of any deviation from timescale or budget (none of which have been significant). I have had complete confidence in Justin’s project management and QS support – whenever the College has wanted to make any changes to the scheme he has been extremely patient with us and has done all that he can to ensure that the finished projects meet the College’s needs. Justin has empathy with the challenges that contractors face when working in an educational environment and has helped ensure that appropriate level of health, safety and welfare have been maintained throughout the project. I have felt that this has not just been a building project for Justin – he has taken a great interest in what we are doing at the College and he has made a massive contribution in helping us to extend vocational training and improve life and career chances for our students.

I was very happy with the way Gary handled the Hine case, which was a complex major flood claim, with a demanding HNW policyholder and plenty of scope for cost escalation and other problems which you deftly avoided. I was impressed with his knowledge of cob type construction and how he handled the Insured and their various existing preferred contractors and introduced others with suitable knowledge, at appropriate times, who proved themselves to be most able. I would have no hesitation in using Slade Parry in future and would recommend your services to colleagues.
Justin Cox was a huge help to us. This was the first project we had managed of any real substance and he provided high quality, useful and informative information. He was readily accessible and was a good buffer between ourselves and the contractors. His particular skill was achieving an outcome which was the best resolution for us all, even when I didn’t want to agree! His polite, caring and courteous manner was invaluable to us and his knowledge of what we wanted and putting the detail across to the contractors was extremely useful. He even managed to help me understand the vagueries of the invoicing system! No mean feat.

The Partners and I wanted to say how much we appreciate how efficiently and smoothly the project was run and we will definitely recommend you to any colleagues who are looking for professional help with a new development.
Justin provided sound, level-headed advice from start to finish. He demonstrated flexibility when having to deal with matters out of project control and supported the college throughout. Project came in on-time and under budget so great overall performance.
From the tender stage through to handing over of the building Slade Parry’s attention to detail, professional approach and commitment was second to none.
Slade Parry were instrumental in the delivery of a first class, high specification building, on time and on budget.
Chairman, Kingsbury Episcopi Community Project
With no prior knowledge of Slade Parry, I engaged this firm to assist with a refurbishment project in the area. My contact was Martin Thompson, who was always very responsive, thorough, knowledgable and keen to help.
I am hoping to appoint Martin’s firm again, on further projects this year, and would happily recommend them to all.
I would like to thank you and your team for your professionalism throughout the whole process from design to build and completion. I was very satisfied with the way you organised and chaired monthly site meetings which enabled you to liaise with the builders regularly and sort out any potential problems before they occurred. I would not hesitate to use your services in the future.
We have received a swift and professional service to attend and carry out a survey, following the survey a clear comprehensive report was provided with photos/diagrams and recommendations.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you very much for all the time spent on our behalf over the last few months.
