“Gipping Construction have been employed by Flagship Group over the last circa 5 years to undertake various remodelling / regeneration projects, ranging from £0.6K - £3m in value. Each project has been delivered within time and on budget.
Gipping Construction have always provided a high-quality product, both displaying excellent managerial skills on and off site.
As a housing association, it is necessary for you to work within complex environments, such as accommodation for the elderly and vulnerable. Gipping Construction are currently undertaking a remodelling project at an over 55’s accommodation scheme in Felixstowe in the sum of circa £1m. The contracts manager appointed to this project has worked with great empathy towards our customers, who all remain incumbent whilst the works proceed, which has made a significant positive contribution to the overall success of this project which is due to complete May 2019.
To conclude, Gipping Construction have performed exceptionally well, on each project commissioned by the Flagship Group Ltd.”
“We are writing to highly recommend Gipping Construction for any future projects you may be involved with. Gipping recently completed a large care home development in Ipswich which was designed and overseen by our practice.
The scheme involved the extension and conversion of a redundant 30 bedroom KCC care home into a 66 bedroom dementia unit.
The Willows was an extremely challenging project and Gipping Construction completed the scheme to a very high standard. Gipping’s staff were very professional, organised and a pleasure to work with.”
“We employed Gipping Construction to act as the main contractor on a project at Southwold House, Leigh on Sea. We converted part of the property to provide a further 4 flats to enhance the care service we offer under Consensus Group. Southwold House specialises in residential support for people with learning disabilities and other associated complex needs.
The work conditions were extremely challenging with residents requiring 24 hour supervision. The Gipping site team were sensitive to all of the residents individual needs and worked alongside the Care Home Manager, covering the logistics of working in live corridors, bedrooms and communal areas every day.
We found Gipping to be good communicators, keeping both ourselves and the Care Home Manager up to date with the programme and work areas. No health and safety issues were compromised and Gipping completed the project to a good standard. Caring Homes would be happy to recommend them for work in a live NHS building.”
"I would like to say a few words about the project. Dale Gregory has been part of the construction team from day one and latterly as the Project Site Manager. We have found him to be polite and respectful of the nature of our business as a working community hospital and completely understanding of our constraints and issues. He was always friendly, had a "can do" attitude and kept good communication, dealing with any problems with a calm and professional manner and responding promptly to any issues putting the needs of the clients and patients at the forefront."
"I write to offer my thanks for the work recently completed by yourselves to provide alterations to Haverhill House. The results are of a very high standard that have impressed many who have seen it. I would also ask if you could pass on our thanks to Chris Crabtree and team for the way they worked in a busy office and kept everybody happy. We appreciate this was not an easy job but made a lot easier for us by Chris’s good natured approach working with the occupants."
"I would like to add my thanks to Chris and his team; it has been a pleasure to work alongside him through the refurbishment at Haverhill House. Chris and his team have been very polite and provisional throughout their time here and they will all be missed."
“Ted Studd, Project Manager, has successfully and patiently put up with all the staff at the Inpatient Unit at Bluebird Lodge. He has worked above and beyond his remit as Project Manager of the installation of the lift project with minimum of fuss and a great sense of humour!” March 2018
“I thoroughly enjoyed working with the boys on site and to witness the co-operation and commitment of your staff and sub-contractors was a joy. Look forward to working together again soon.”Swarovski
"All of Gipping's employees were very courteous and helpful whenever I visited site. In particular, Shaun Whiting, who responded quickly to any queries or requests I had and was always willing to assist on site or over email."
"I feel you should know how impressed our school was with the site foreman, Carl Taylor. Throughout the project Carl worked seamlessly with school staff, he was courteous, professional and polite to all members of our staff team and did his utmost to ensure that the project continued to proceed smoothly, even when the children were back on site. As a school, we have found in the past that it can present difficulties when a project has to proceed in a school setting with children present. Carl managed others who came to our site exceptionally well. There were one or two tricky situations, Carl immediately took the necessary action and I really appreciated the calm way in which he dealt with such situations. When problems arose he always found a solution, which was especially impressive. He has gone the extra mile, always with a smile on his face and the determination that the project would be delivered on time. He is a credit to your company and I wanted you to know how impressed with him we are."
"A very good start to building a regular working relationship with Muntons. Having an on–site supervisor has been a key factor."
“Very impressed that the building manual was ready in time for Practical Completion including the Building Control Certificate."
"For me, as the person living on site, you are very easy to work with, and very flexible in the way you have considered different amendments as the project develops - together with your absolute readiness to help in ways large and small."
“The project was carried out in a very diligent, cooperative and safe manner in compliance with the requirements of the Client, Local Authority and Environment Agency.”
“On behalf of the school, we are absolutely delighted with the work completed and the level of service provided. In particular, the communication and flexibility were excellent.”
“Work is nearing completion on the Old Workhouse site, in Chapel Lane and, as immediate neighbours to the development, we wanted you to know how pleased we are with the results. We always maintained that, in the right hands, with the right attitude and a little imagination, the old buildings could be dramatically transformed for the best. Our thanks to you and all your staff who worked on the project for helping to prove us right.”
“On behalf of Flagship I would like to express our thanks and gratitude to Gipping Construction in delivering such a high quality end product. The project was not without its challenges and throughout the build, Gipping Construction worked in partnership with Flagship staff. We feel that the end product is something which each member of the project team contributed towards and we can all be proud of how wonderful it looks.”
“Thanks for all your work on Uplands, both client and myself were really impressed with the standards of the finish and the complete transformation from the original building.”
“A great company that has similar values and approach to Greenfields Community Housing. We would work with Gipping again.”
"Thank you to the on-site team, for help 'dealing with' the snow and all related issues. More generally, we have been really pleased and grateful for the very helpful and highly professional approach consistently maintained by Gipping."
"We are very pleased with the newly created areas at the school. The site manager was an absolute star and we are all very grateful."
