Main Contractor’s Comments

“We would just like to say what a pleasure it has been to work with Thames Valley Construction on the Tate St Ives project. You were employed to provide a concrete frame on a very exposed coastal site looking out to the sea.

The works required very high quality exposed concrete finishes to soffits, walls, gallery beams and rooflights. The site was very restricted with limited access and storage. Despite the restrictions and given the exposed coastal location of the site, you managed to complete the concrete frame to a very high quality finish as required by the specification and to an agreed programme.

Both BAM and TVC worked closely together to ensure both TVC and BAM’s Health & Safety, Quality and Environmental Policies were met at all time. Your attention to safety always took precedence and was always maintained to a very high standard. The supervision you provided on this project was some of the best we have worked with. We look forward to working with you again in the future.”

“I have used Thames Valley Construction on several RC framed projects, and found them to be highly professional and co-operative. They have a strong ethic relating to site safety and quality of workmanship. I have no hesitation in recommending their services.”
