‘I came across HGT Construction when I had an emergency maintenance issue on a Saturday afternoon in the busy Restaurant at the 24/7 Truck Park which I manage. Regular suppliers could not help me and I was stuck. Something needed to be done and I envisaged an afternoon of phone calls not answered. The first company I came across was HGT Construction I called in hope. John Sayers answered the phone (whilst he was away on holiday) and within a couple of hours my emergency was resolved. Brilliant service! I have used HGT regularly since and have always found HGT to be flexible, reliable, professional and competitively priced. The standard of work is excellent as is the attitude of the tradesmen themselves. I would recommend HGT most highly to anyone needing building services. Best regards Nick Hammond Truck Park & Site Manager - N
I chose HGT to carry out a major refurbishment of my property not because their quote was the cheapest, although it was very competitive, but because John took the time to listen to what I wanted to achieve and considered my requirements carefully. Inevitably, as the build progressed, unforeseen issues requiring further work came to light and after discussion of the situation John always came up with a solution and a fair price for the additional works. Similarly if I wished to make changes John was not only very helpful in effecting the changes but also pro-active in making suggestions as he was totally in-tune with my end goal. On the very rare occasions that something was not done quite to instructions or my satisfaction John ensured that it was re-done. We established an excellent working relationship of mutual respect which was very important to me, a single lady, and I can honestly say that I am delighted with the finished job. Furthermore, and very importantly, John is highly reliable and he and his workers were always on-site when expected but on the few occasions that they were unable to be there John always contacted me to inform me of this and they always returned the following day to continue the work. The build took some months to complete and John always respected the scheduled site meetings as well as meeting with me on an “ad hoc” basis whenever necessary. I can sincerely say that I would recommend HGT to anyone who has building needs no matter how large or small as the job will be done to the client’s satisfaction and within the agreed time limits. - J
We recently selected HGT to complete our complete house renovation which consisted of a 3 month programme including a loft conversion, new stairwells, converting an integrated garage, rendering externally, fitting new windows and decorating. Having just completed the build we have been impressed with the quality of the work and the team that carried it out. John was regularly present and always available on the phone to update us with progress and the team were professional, friendly and trustworthy. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend or use HGT for future projects. - R
I cannot believe how time has flown by – we were over in June to see the house. We are absolutely delighted with how things have turned out and the work that you and your team have completed has resulted in a superb improvement to our home. After over 170 years since the house was built and the various improvements over time, the house finally feels complete. Thanks to HGT for working with us on this project – strange to think this has all been done without actually meeting! I hope that one day we will meet in person and I can thank you for a job well done. Regards, Adam - A
The project was at the Dover Western Docks and consisted of refurbishing 400m2 UKBA offices; occupied offices had to have new inner offices and welfare facilities built whilst the UKBA carried on normal 24 hour 365 days a week working practices. HGT programmed there works so that any disruptive works were completed a night or weekends. Once these offices were fully prepared the UKBA then moved out of there 1st floor offices which provided the empty unit to install the Truck stop Services. This project was a design and build project where HGT provided a design concept developed by there in house design team and created via our extensive experience of design and development of Truck top Services and office design and fit out projects. The project consisted of cinema room, shop, cafeteria, rest rooms, 8 shower wet rooms, male female toilets and European toilet facilities. On completion Rob Hardy the general manager of Motis when asked would you use HGT again stated yes 100%. ‘HGT were efficient, helpful and informative throughout the entire build. This was a large contract for us and using HGT meant that we could leave it to them and not employ additional resources to manage or monitor the project. - J
