Hearing and reading the feedback that local leading refurbishment contractor CW Duke receive reminds us why you should always rely on the experts in Construction.
When we think
of risk in construction I think we could all roll off a lot concerning new build and maybe if we were honest not as many for refurbishment. But on reviewing these types of projects, they in fact come with their own unique challenges you wouldn’t face in new builds.
So with that
said, having knowledge that a refurbishment company have received feedback and praise from SME and blue chip clients regarding the fact that the reduced or omitted all risks, really is a place to start to give anyone peace of mind. We have to class them as the experts.
CW Duke have
just that. They have made it a policy that they liaise with the key stakeholders to gain feedback at the end of each project, some contractors may see this as opening up a moaning session, but not Duke they see it as an opportunity to understand what their clients thought about performance, quality and their team on every project. Reviewing their feedback it is clear that they are one of the leading refurbishment contractors in the South West. We’d have to call them the experts.
CW Duke have
been based in Bristol in since the 1960’s completing many historic projects around the city. Though life started as a shop fitting company CW Duke have now found fame in working with multiple ‘blue chip’ clients across the South West on many different sectors of refurbishments.
How have they become the experts?
CW Duke have
made sure they have the best knowledge in 8 key areas; Cost Management, Project Management, Health and Safety Management, Environmental Management, Electrical Design Management, Design Services, Building Regulation Advice and Programme Management. All of these area’s proving vital for successful projects.
uniquely in contractors CW Duke have taken the decision to have most of these experts as a directly employed workforce. They hold a lot of pride in the fact that their in house trade’s team are highly skilled with extensive experience. You can see that having their own team means that they have full control of their workforce on each project.
This also is a
very dedicated team, the longest serving member is over 25 years strong, and their turnover of staff would impress any company...
Director of CW Duke said “We have grown our knowledge in house to ensure we are able to offer our clients a complete service on their projects, We know by having them directly employed we gain better control and we can ensure that our knowledge and expertise is the most effective. That said, the relationships we have developed over the last 50 odd years with our specialist sub-contractors means that we have the right trades to provide utopia to our clients”
Contracts Director at CW Duke comments “With programming being pivotal to any of our projects, it is vital to know what workforce is available, having the majority of our workforce in-house means that our programming can be very specific and achievable. Meeting project deadlines is imperative to us and this accurate programme allows this to happen”
So don’t just
take my words for it, see what local construction consultancy firm Kendall Kingscott had to say:
“This was a well-managed project. CW
Duke brought alternative solutions and ways of working to assist in programme management”
be a word banded around to impress, CW Duke have the proof and can be confident to classify themselves as ‘Experts’ in their sector.
