"In one word Nick and his team at Berkeley Place, delivered"

Living overseas and having bought a rather run down but a gem of a Georgian Grade 2 listed townhouse, absolute trust and faith in our project manager for the complete renovation that our house needed. In one word Nick and his team at Berkeley Place, “ delivered”.
The whole house, all 5 stories were gutted , front and back gardens redesigned and planners dealt with, all within the confines of very awkward access. The opportunity for conflict with our new neighbours was obvious, but Nick and his various contractors worked with the deftness that would have made a professional PR company proud. At the end of what was a year long project , our next door neighbour told me he missed our contractors, which has to be a first !
The quality of the workmanship, the willingness to go the extra mile, and the professionalism of the financial management of what was a complex project, would all lead me to recommend Nick and his team to anyone with a similar renovation in mind.

"It was great luck on my part finding Nick..."

After only a couple of meetings, I left him the keys of the house. A large old houses with extensive redecorating, so there were snags, and decisions to be taken to keep costs in check. Nick and his team were very efficient, pleasant to work with and always ready with good sensible advice.
The house has been transformed, and I am about to give Nick my house keys again for a second round…

"Professionalism and quality workmanship"

Professionalism and quality workmanship

I am happy to recommend Nick and Berkeley Place, they were contracted to carry out decorative work at my offices and have refurbished other Savills offices on my recommendation and as a direct result of their professionalism and quality workmanship. On a personal level, I have employed them at my own home and found the contractors punctual, trust worthy and considerate. I would therefore have no hesitation in endorsing the company in the future.

"I would have no hesitation to recommend the service."

We used Berkeley Place for a substantial project on a grade 2 Georgian country house including extensive refurbishment, decoration, reconditioning 300 year old windows etc.
NIck, Alex and the team were always quick to respond and happy to do the extra stuff that keeps the stress to a minimum! I would have no hesitation to recommend the service. We have infact gone on to do another two projects with Nick already.

"The first two phases have been completed with excellent results."

Berkeley Place was recommended to us by a friend as we recently bought a flat which needed renovation, including 2 bathrooms, kitchen, and various windows. It was not possible to carry out the work with us in occupation, and as our main home is in France, we wanted a reliable company to deliver the works to a high standard,and within budget. We would not visit the site until each phase had been completed.
The project has been divided into 4 phases and the first two have been completed with excellent results.

"I wouldn't hesitate in using them again"

Berkeley Place did a top class job in refurbishing the Downs School. They communicated well from the beginning to the end of the project & if there was a problem then they were always readily available either by phone, email or onsite. Being a school health and safety of our staff & pupils is always essential & Berkeley Place always worked with the utmost care and consideration which minimised any disruption involved. They delivered the project on budget and the end product means the school has been restored to its former glory. I wouldn’t hesitate in using them again.

"Nick's builders and suppliers were all excellent, professional and hard working."

We are delighted with our final new builds (x 2). Nick’s builders and suppliers were all excellent, professional and hard working. The site was always kept tidy and safe, and our wishes were always met. Nick’s project management was wonderful. He was responsive and quick to deal with queries. I felt Nick understood our vision clearly and more importantly worked within our budget.

Jonathan Boss, Partner

"Delivered according to plan and within budgeted cost"

We have invested in two projects which were originated and project-managed by Berkeley Place. Both projects were delivered according to plan and within the budgeted cost. The resulting developments quickly attracted tenants and purchasers, enabling our investments to be realised along with the returns that had been promised from the outset.

With excellent communication throughout, Nick proved to be a reliable investment partner who dealt efficiently and capably with all aspects of planning, property acquisition, construction project management and ultimately lettings and sales, leaving us confident that our investment was in safe hands.

"Nick Cryer and Ian Cox were a pleasure to work with - very knowledgable and cost conscious."

We chose Berkeley Place to project manage the refurbishment and extension of our grade !! listed Georgian House on a recommendation from our estate agent. We had no experience working on listed buildings and BP helped us a lot with the architect, planning, conservation officer and ultimately the builders.
Nick Cryer and Ian Cox were a pleasure to work with – very knowledgable and cost conscious. We would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone in a similar position to us.
