What our customers are saying


We get positive feedback all the time, here is just a snippet of what our clients are saying... 

We have recently complete 12 months without a RIDDOR incident in the building division which means we have a rolling AFR of zero which is a fantastic achievement. 

I wanted to thank you personally for your contribution. As a manager you are responsible for putting people to work and to ensure that the men that work under you understand their own personal responsibility for safety as well as looking out for each other. Your role as manager is vital in ensuring that everyone that works on one of our sites goes home safely. 

Operations Manager - Volker Fitzpatrick Building Division

The external works and paving was superbly crafted by Ben and Stuart which really put the icing on the cake – these were expert finishing touches and the lasting impression of an excellent job well done by Champion Build.

We would and will certainly recommend your services to anyone seeking expert, conscientious, friendly and hard working builders. Nothing was ever too much trouble and the team do you credit.

Mr W - Private Client

I was on site yesterday and I was very impressed with the quality of the brickwork at the RFU project – it is stunning.

I always like to pass on positive feedback. Please pass this on to the bricklayers who completed the work. It’s good to know there are still craftsmen in the industry.

Managing Director - Volker Fitzpatrick Building Division

We commenced the above on 13th August 2011, and next Tuesday handover the last units to the client. On behalf of all the team at Howarth Homes I’d like to pass on my thanks for your assistance in achieving in what is a high standard of product. Both the Employers Agent and client acknowledged this in a meeting I attended yesterday, and congratulated us on what has been one of the best housing schemes that they have worked on in a long time. We would of not been able to do this without your help. So thanks!

Again, I’d like to personally say many thanks for your efforts of the last 14 months, and look forward to working with you all future projects……

Mr F - Howarth Homes

Just a note from me to say that today we achieved practical completion on Phase 1 and the client was delighted with the product we produced. The comments were that the finish job was “Exceptional” and they were more than happy with us.

My thanks goes out to all of you and your teams, we would not be able to function without the support that you and your teams give us. I know it has been a painful road but we have reached the end. It is with sincerity that I say thank you to you all because we have all worked hard to get to this stage.

Mr. C - Beard Construction

Further to our conversation last week; i’d like to thank Champion Scaffold for their continued efforts on site. I’d also like to give personal thanks to Fred; he has been a pleasure to deal with and has shown great competence in all aspects of his work. I would gladly have Fred on any of my sites.

Mr. K - Westridge Construction Ltd 

It’s not very often I write to subcontractors but I felt I must thank your onsite operatives lead by Rob for producing a very high standard of workmanship and safety and most of all the cooperation to help us and guide us through some very trying times on site thanks again

Mr D - Site Manager - Morgan Sindall

Further to my site visit to the above project and the excellent progress by your team on site on the dismantling the front elevation scaffold.

A special mention must also go to your operative on site Dave Turner who has a 1st class "Can do " attitude and as a front line operative is a credit to your company.
Keep up the good work.

Mr L - Regional Operations Director - Wates Living Space West

We have just had our final visit from Nick Brown and I wanted to write to you straight away.  Nick has been with us throughout the project and has been our main point of contact for many months.  When I was told that Paul Kent was moving to the Littlehampton project I had my concerns, but I need not have worried as Nick picked up the reins and rose to the challenge with ease and confidence.  

Nick has many qualities.  He is calm and efficient and takes great pride in his work and customer service.  I think what most impressed me was his maturity which is well beyond his years.  Nick dealt with all the tradesmen on my behalf and kept the whole project on track.  If he had any concerns Paul Kent was always available at the other end of the telephone to assist.

Nick is a real asset to your company and a magnificent ambassador.  We would like to wish him every success for his future career – he will go far.

As our project draws to a close I would like to send my thanks and regards to everyone who has worked here at the Lodge.  The list of names is lengthy and I would probably miss off many, but would like to mention in particular Steve Hay, Tony Jones, Paul Kent and of course Nick.

I would be delighted to recommend your company to any prospective customers and wish you much success for the future especially in these difficult times.

Mrs M, Kingsclere

Many thanks again for your service (scaffolding) which is fantastic and we really appreciated the hard working and charming men on site, see you soon no doubt.

Mr A, Nr Basingstoke

Just a brief word of thanks regarding the way your two foreman on site have managed both the job in hand as well as their men. The same can be said of Paul Cummins and Dean Harrison. Criticism is easy and so should praise be.

D R Clarke - Bloor Homes

I am faxing you to praise the two lads you have here on site. The materials you send are in good condition. The lads on site are hardworking, consciencious, organised and above all, non abusive.
Even our MD commented on the good standard on his site visit last week.

Millington - Taylor Wimpey

Now Tyler court is coming to an end, i would like to say a big thank you for the excellent service that Mansell have received from your self as a contract manager and champion scaffolding as a whole, I must say its been a pleasure to work along side you in what has been a challenging job and demanding programme. Some of the ideas that Champion Scaffolding have come up with regarding loading bays has been well received with Mansell safety department and i look forward to working with champion scaffolding and your self Mick again in the near future.

D Towse - Mansell Construction Services Limited

Now that the building work at Beech House has been completed, I feel I must write to thank the whole team from Shores for the professional, considerate and efficient way it was carried out. From our initial meeting, to the tying up of loose ends, Steve Hay has been professional, patient and caring, inspiring confidence and trust. I can't speak too highly of Adam, the perfect foreman to have overseeing what could have been a disruptive and intrusive project. Right the way through he was there for us, listening, anticipating, discussing, advising and always ensuring minimal disruption. Nick has learnt well from him and, in Adam's absence, ably took on that role of overseeing and liasing, giving that little bit extra to complete beyond expectations.        Thank you Shores. We are pleased we chose you, and are delighted to recommend you. We have enjoyed having you around! 

 Mrs M - Basingstoke

I would just like to let you know that I have been very impressed by your scaffold company on the Samuel Lodge site MiltonVillage, Portsmouth. From pre-tender stage when your contracts manager came to site to discuss the scaffold requirements, through to completion of the scaffold erection by your scaffolders.
The good standard of work carried out and their positive attitude to Health and Safety helped our site achieve a monthly safety award in February. 
I look forward to working with your company again on future projects.

Thank you it is fully appreciated I can assure you.
I am also aware that I am somewhat tardy in thanking you and the lads for their work at
