Hackney Church Retrofit

“Our experience of working with Quaye Services Ltd has been positive as they have an organised approach when it comes to administering the costs. We found that QS Ltd knew how to manage the builder very well. We chose their company because of their good profile, previous experience and diverse leadership. Initially our internal staff didn’t appreciate the benefits of using consultants but since using QS Ltd, they see how valuable it is.

QS Ltd were so engaged with us that they negotiated free consultations from their network. Their goodwill exceeded our expectations. And the benefit of using QS Ltd is that they were able to recommend good quality Contractors and Consultants which brought cost savings, which was done effectively during the Covid pandemic.

If you are thinking about using them, I would say they are friendly, approachable and know what they are doing. Our experience of working with them was awesome! I was impressed with their energy, their way of working and that they inspired our committee. Since using QS Ltd we have creatively found a way to complete our project without having to start from scratch. 

Also, it was good to know QS Ltd is a youthful company that provides work experience to young people. Keep up the great work!”
