Testimonials

Here is some of the recent feedback from clients.

Hampshire County Council

The support, advice and challenge you have provided the County Council on the children's centre and more latterly the PVI programme over the past four or five years has been very much appreciated.

I think we would all agree that in the early days we were less than clear on the way forward but, with your support and advice we turned the programme around and will now deliver all of our projects on time and on budget. You have challenged us when it was needed and, particularly with the early modular projects warned us (very accurately) of the pitfalls.

What we have achieved over the last five years really has been a team effort and you have been for us a very important part of that team. Without your support and advice over this period I am sure we would not have achieved what we have, so on behalf of the County Council may I thank you for this.

NPS Group

Services provided by Stephen Jackson have been not only in a quantity surveying capacity, but have also involved a significant amount of programme management and general client advice on education construction projects. Many of these have faced challenging circumstances, and often complex stakeholder involvement.

Stephen's technical skills have been highly regarded, and his judgement is valued, trusted and respected. He has excellent interpersonal skills and these, coupled with his mediation experience, have provided the necessary customer care and client relationships that ensure our commissions are successfully serviced to the high standard required by our key client. He is a consummate professional, with a high degree of tact and diplomacy.

Guards Polo Club

The success of our Clubhouse construction project was in serious doubt when the main contractor went into liquidation half way through the build. I cannot overestimate the value of Stephen Jackson's careful management of the contractual minefield which this presented, and he can claim a great deal of the credit for steering the project to an ultimately successful conclusion. We would not consider using any other practice for future projects.

Portsmouth City Council

The Portsmouth Children's Centres Project Board has commented on how very useful we have found your professional input which you delivered in a spirit of collaboration and with a level of care. We particularly valued the way you challenged us to ensure that we met our agreed targets and provided some very helpful and practical information which we were able to use to improve our ways of working so that our programme remained robust and on target.
