Client testimonials

Working with Tristan and Justin was first class, professional and an enjoyable experience and any issues were dealt with logically and expeditiously. Reporting was timely and in a succinct form. Of particular note, the final construction cost was well less than the contracted sum due to considerable savings in the provisional sums items. In summary, the services provided by WGE were excellent.

Stephen Seward, 3rdWave Capital

The Park, which was completed ahead of time, under budgeted cost, and resulted in a product which was rapidly taken up in the market place. Moreover, issues which might normally arise in a project of this nature were few, and were dealt with by Wood & Grieve in a very professional and capable manner.
