I am writing on behalf of the church to thank you and your team for the excellent work you undertook for us at the church during 2011. It was an extremely worrying time for us when the serious roof defects were discovered. However thanks to the close teamwork between yourselves and Andy Allen, the roof was propped in an innovative, cost effective and safe manner – buying enough time to come up with a permanent solution. When the props were finally removed, a number of people commented that they were sorry to see them go as they blended in with the building so well!
The permanent strengthening works have been completely successful, with our ongoing monitoring not recording any further movement of the roof trusses, with virtually no damage to the original fabric and completely hidden from view. Having been in the roof space on a number of occasions I am well aware of the difficult working conditions that the Shaca team had to work in!
Having worked with a number of contractors both at the church and in my job, I was very pleased by your careful and cooperative approach, and both myself and Roger found communication with John Rutherford prompt, professional and honest. We would have no hesitation in working with you in the future, or recommending you to other clients with similar challenging works.
