“Following the recent completion of the project of comprehensive roof works to the main house and orangery, conservation heating upgrades and new build biomass plant at this Grade I Listed Mansion House and Grade II* parkland for our client, The National Trust, we would like to express our sincere thanks for, and appreciation of, the hard work, diligence and expertise displayed by Ken Biggs Contractors Ltd throughout the project, which was completed on time and on budget.
The project, by virtue of its scale, complexity and significant visitor experience elements presented a considerable challenge to all concerned. The personal organisational skill, pragmatism and professionalism of your Site Manager helped overcome all of these challenges and is to be commended. With regard to the specific relationship with the client, National Trust staff and visitors he was exemplary; his commitment to an excellent finished product and the enjoyment of the property during the works by visitors was always apparent.
Taking all of the above into consideration we would not hesitate to work with Ken Biggs Contractors Ltd again”.
Izaak Hudson, Senior Architect
“Following the final inspection of the completed contract recently I would like to pass on to all involved with the project that I was fortunate to work with a small number of excellent contractors between 2016 and 2018 of which Ken Biggs Contractors Ltd was one. This was an excellent contract of which I was pleased to be involved in with your firm”.
“Selecting Ken Biggs Contractors Ltd as the contractor for an extensive extension and renovation project to our listed home proved to be a good decision. Nothing was too much trouble, the work was carried out whilst we remained in residence. Site management was excellent, accommodating and skilful as were the labour-force who undertook the work.
The joinery from the company’s own workshop through the building is of a quality which would be difficult to achieve anywhere else.
The company has retained traditional values in a modern world, training and retaining genuine craftsmen and tradesmen able to work to demanding standards set by its directors and clients.
I would have no hesitation in recommending them strongly for any project where quality and professionalism is required.”
Private Client, Combe Hay

Clients have been impressed by the workmanship and attitude of staff and as Architects we have had confidence that our intentions will be followed on site.
Working with Ken Biggs feels like we are all part of the same team.”

“I just wanted to drop you a line to say how grateful we are for all that your team have done to make our ‘Transforming Trinity, Transforming Lives’ project such a success.
Having no experience with large and complex projects I did feel daunted and especially so given that the building is Grade II* Listed and very dear to the hearts of many people in the wider community as well as the congregation itself. But working with your Contracts Manager and Site Manager soon put my fears to rest, and I was so pleased with the professional and careful way in which everyone from your team and also your sub-contractors went about their business, what a comfort it was to know that we were in such good hands. This was especially the case during the excavation and floor reconstruction phase when I really did just stand back in awe at how your team just got on with things, solved problem after problem and were such a delight to work with right the way through to the end.
I give thanks for all that your amazing team have achieved, they have all been a delight to work with, and we do thank you”.

I am writing to say how pleased we are with the barn – it does look magnificent! Please pass our thanks on to your excellent site team, who between them made it all come true. They were a superb team, working incredibly hard whatever the weather, were good natured, good humoured and very good company throughout the process. We were sad to see them go at the end of the project.
