Words from our Client

Even before we had the tender back from Ian Pearson, we had made our minds up that we wanted to appoint him as the Contractor for our build. After meeting him and talking through the drawings for our project, we were so taken with his enthusiasm and passion for our project, and by the quality of his previous projects, that we decided to go for him even though, when the bids came back, he wasn’t the lowest, but certainly not the most expensive.

We have nothing negative to say about Ian Pearson and his team. Not many people can say that about their builders. At every level, whatever the trade, the men were efficient, hard-working and dependable. They were also friendly and polite. This was important to me as I had been concerned about how the men on site would respond to a mum and her kids visiting most days.

The build itself has been far from conventional and some challenges inevitably arose during the course of construction. However, we always felt that we could trust the team to find a solution and that we were in safe hands. The quality of the final finish has been exceptional. Thanks to the professionalism of the Forman, Gordon, the quality of the workmanship of the men on site and the attention to detail shown by Ian Pearson we now live in a beautiful home that exceeds our expectations.
