Building Testimonials

Dr Martin & Alison Green Testimonial

by Dev Direct on December 5, 2012

We have been very impressed with the high standards and professionalism of Colin and his team at Development Direct. We looked around at a few showrooms and talked to various kitchen people, but Colin stood out because he had lots of ideas and energy, and helped us pick our way through what seemed such a complex area.

Development Direct had also installed a kitchen at a friend’s home and came highly recommended. The fact that Colin and his team did everything was a bonus (so we didn’t have the added hassle of identifying builders, plumbers etc.).

Clearly they are more than capable than just to fit kitchens: for us they put in a brand new roof over the kitchen with large remote control windows and installed French doors in the dining-room.

The whole team were very friendly and professional and worked long hours, including on Saturday. Even when minor problems occurred (even late in the evening) it was helpful to have Colin easily contactable to give advice.

Oh yeah, and the kitchen turned out fab!

Ian Harty Testimonial

I can’t praise Colin, Jenny and their team highly enough. When you look to take on a potentially expensive building project, including the removal of structural walls, you will be concerned about the quality of workmanship that you contract.

However, even from the initial discussions in their showroom I realised that I was dealing with a team that paid attention to detail and were excellent at answering any of my questions. In particular, I liked Colin’s comprehensive
quotes and invoicing, so I was able to control my budget and chose what work I required (even adjusting as required throughout the build).

Their onsite team were excellent and, as mentioned by others, were always on time, left the site tidy and the workmanship was of the highest quality. Colin was also very knowledgeable about all aspects of the build which made for easy discussion.

Development Direct have created a wonderful addition to my home and even after the work was completed they have been helpful in following up any queries. It truly was a stress free and effortless project (for me, as the client, at
least), therefore I would have no hesitation in recommending them for any size of project and look forward to working with Colin, Jenny and their team again. I would happily show any future clients round my kitchen.

Dr Jon Stone Testimonial

We’ve been so pleased that we chose Development Direct to carry out substantial building and renovation work to our Victorian house. The scale of the works was large with multiple walls being knocked down, the creation of a raised stone patio and sun-room, 3 bathrooms and generally renovating the house which had seen not much change since the 1970s. Colin’s team were impressive throughout.

They were very thorough and their transparent initial quote ( which remained realistic throughout), then the attentive project management Colin brought to every aspect of the build really made a difference. The quality of the design and ongoing decorative advice was executed by the team of excellent tradesmen who worked on our project.

Because Development Direct were able to combine the kitchen fit out with the building work, we only ever had to deal with the same team throughout. This massively reduced our stress whilst we lived in the house during a process that lasted many months but ran on time and budget.

The final result is a wonderful light and spacious home with a great family space and outdoor area that greatly exceeds our expectations of what we originally thought was possible. We came through recommendation and we have already recommended them to friends who are considering similar work.
