Testimonials

 

Can I congratulate the Nuvia/Thompson’s of Prudhoe team for another successfully executed demolition project at Sellafield.

 

Given the challenges faced by the weather, the Christmas break, the space restrictions and the unusual waste processing/disposal ops, it makes the performance
even more impressive.

 

The alliance continue to raise their bar on their demolition tasks.

Sellafield

On behalf of Sir Robert McAlpine can I pass on our praise to you, your management team, site supervisor Robert Brewis and your operatives for the professional and diligent manner in which they are presently carrying out the demolition works in both Greys Quarter and Unit 10-14.

 

The attitude of your site team is exemplary in due notice to safe working practice and this has been consistent with Thompsons’ approach whilst working at Eldon Square over the past 8 years. This is a credit to you and the company. On that note, I would also wish to pass on my own thanks for the continued cooperation and approach applied by Thompsons, as we enter the final phase of the redevelopment plan at Eldon Square and look forward to successfully completing this final phase.

Sir Robert Mcalpine Ltd

I have found them to be quite exceptional in how they work. Experts in their field coupled with high levels of client-focused collaboration to deliver optimum results.

We entered into a complex demolition and remediation contract in trying circumstances for both parties (Carillion insolvency), we could not have found a better partner for these works.

Honest, straight-forward to deal with contractually, appreciative of complex legal position and willingness to work with us to get site works recommenced as soon as possible.

Developing on from this in delivery of the works the same ethos is there, client-focused collaborative and most unusually when a commitment is made, it is delivered. No ifs, buts or excuses!

Demolition can be extremely complex and you rarely come across contractors that are set up to tackle complex projects in a professional/safe manner.

 

In my opinion, Thompsons fall into this category.

 

Without doubt one of the most professional, well-organised demolition contractors in the business.

Regional Director, Bowmer & Kirkland

A professional company, reliable, safe – a company you can work with.

 

Thompsons are the ‘go-to’ company when you have a job that requires a great degree of care and attention, difficult schemes are safe in their hands which is what
sets them apart from their competitors.

Galliford Try
