It is with pleasure we write to you as a reference. Leading a business professional life, running a business from home and having constant visitors in the house for meetings we needed to ensure that our recent major house extension and renovations allowed us to still function as a business and a home.
With your expert advice and experience the entire project was managed with professionalism and minimal downtime, which, given we had to shift the office three times throughout the duration, and had guests staying over from time to time, was handled without fuss and great communication allowing for us to plan ahead The extension was phase one, interior/loft phase two and yet to be completed groundwork is phase three. It was all well thought through and met our requirements, the workmanship was of the highest quality and most importantly a trusted team of contractors who respected our property and always left the place spotless each night. Your attention to detail in running the project within our budget was highlighted by the various products you were able to recommend ensuring the high quality of products didn’t always come with a high price tag.
We look forward to completing the groundwork and drive next so to really highlight the exceptional work you have done in increasing the size and value of our home and best thing of all is that it is hard to tell where the old house finished and the extension began as everything matches perfectly!
We bought Orchard House in February 2012. It is a new build five bedroom detached house on New Road. The style of the house is sympathetic to that found in the village, and can probably best be described as modern Victorian. The house was designed and planned by the architects PFG Design and built by GRE Group.
We are delighted with the quality of build and of the fittings, finish and equipment. Although it’s too soon to comment on reliability and performance, it is hoped that this encouraging standard will be maintained. Throughout the pre and post purchase period our main contact for all issues – large and small – has been Greg Eaton, the MD of the building company. To describe Greg as a deliverer is somewhat of an understatement. In the many changes and additions we asked for, both internal and external, his attitude has always been positive and constructive, with suggestions for improvements and better (in some cases less costly) ways to get things done. With Greg, we planned the whole of the outdoor and garden layout together, inviting input from various contractors along the way.
Sub-contractors and specialist suppliers carry out all works for GRE. We have found, pretty much without exception, that they have delivered a quality product with an attitude and approach with which it is a pleasure to engage. The result has been a new house of which Greg and his company are rightly proud. And we believe that when issues arise or we want to make other changes or additions down the line, that these will continue to be addressed and executed rapidly and positively.In a word – and maybe we are naïve to use it of someone in the building trade – we trust Greg. Not just because we happen to like him, but because of his attitude, honesty and track record.
Mr Eaton has invited me to write a reference testimonial as to the standard of his work and capabilities which I am delighted to provide.
Mr Eaton was the project manager responsible for end-to-end completion of my new property Bramblings which was finished mid-2006. This substantial home comprising over 5000sqft required almost no snagging at all which is testament to his high standards of trades management and quality, and for which I continue to be very grateful. Subsequently I have engaged Mr Eaton in his new venture GRE Group to complete a number of significant modifications and improvements to the property, comprising a variety of trades and specialties, all of which have been executed to the same high standard.
I continue to work with him in respect of planning the construction of a new building within the grounds of the property for completion this year, and would have no hesitation in commending him to you as a person of demonstrable ability in his field, and in whom I continue to trust to provide a quality service.
Greg Eaton at GRE Group built us a stunning home, which we purchased in March 2015. The house has the highest quality of fixtures and fittings and they have thought of everything when co-working on the design the house. Post purchase Greg and his partners could not have done more to make sure the house was in perfect working order, including making sure the house was left in perfect order once the show home interiors were removed. I cannot recommend or thank GRE Group enough for being so attentive and making the move to our long term family home perfect..
Working with GRE Group on our data centre project has been a fantastic experience. As well as the obvious – competitive on price and listening and understanding our requirements; they truly supported our existing businesses (which were still in the building), in maintaining a professional image whilst transforming the floors below for the new data centre business. Everyone that came to work on site was professional and committed to the project – working all hours to ensure we met our deadline for the launch event. Visitors to the building can’t believe the transformation and are amazed at what we have achieved in such a short time.
GRE Group aren’t just a company you employ, they are a partner you work with. I am more than happy to recommend them and look forward to working with them again on the next data centre project!
We purchased our property from Mr Eaton at GRE Group in late 2014 which we’re thoroughly happy with. The design and layout works really well for our family and being in the construction industry myself the finish and the fittings are second to none. We recently completed a loft conversion with GRE, giving us a further two bedrooms and a bathroom, which was completed in 2016.
