GREAT WORK ETHIC – ON TIME TO A HIGH STANDARD

Working with Sammy Ene at the Old Vicarage, Henley I was the architect engaged by Chris and Melinda at the Old Vicarage, Henley, for which Sammy Ene and Dumitru Tega were involved in the construction. The project was one year in construction, and had a works value of approximately £1m. Both Sammy and Dumitru come highly recommended. I am happy to report that Sammy worked diligently throughout the contract, and worked hard to incorporate client changes and unforeseen arising on site. His construction skill and knowledge is excellent, and his work ethic makes sure work is done quickly and to a high standard Sammy understands the value of good working relationships between client and members of the design and construction team. This enables him to give a personal service which makes resolving issues greatly more fluid and enjoyable. I have worked with many contractors in my capacity of architect and contract administrator, and I can confidently say that Sammy is one of the best. I wish him all the best in the future, and will certainly be bringing future projects to him. I only hope he is available!

PRO-ACTIVE TEAM WITH A GREAT JUDGEMENT CAPACITY

Samir was our foreman and key contact when we did our house renovation in 2011. He was great interacting with us and making sure everything run smoothly. He and his team were polite, punctual and respectful of our privacy when we eventually had to move in. Most importantly he never hesitated double checking things with us or suggesting alternative solutions as the works were progressing. Sometimes things look great on plans but it is another story when you try to build them in reality, so we really enjoyed the pro-activity and judgement capacity of the team to not just "follow" plans like robots but to actually adapt and deliver creative solutions when required. They also kindly helped us with some extra small tasks towards the end (e.g. hanging frames, curtain rails or garden works) which we really appreciated. We would definitely use and recommend Samir Ene & his team again. They are by far the best building team we have had to date.

FULL REFURBISHMENT OF OUR VICTORIAN TERRACED HOUSE

Sammy and his team carried out a full refurbishment of our Victorian terraced house between January and December 2015. The works included major structural modifications which included the lowering of an existing half basement by 1 meter and excavating further to create a full basement. A rear extension on the ground floor that extended into the side return, plus a pod room on the top floor. All pipework and heating were replaced, as well as a full rewire. All bathrooms and kitchens were refurbished. In addition, the roof as well as all windows and doors were replaced, plus full redecoration of the entire premises. Sammy and his team were punctual, professional and highly proficient. Sammy attended all weekly site meetings and dealt with all enquiries and requests in a courteous and professional manner. The quality of his and his teams work was highlighted by a very small snag list. Any snags that were highlighted were dealt with fairly and swiftly. It’s almost 2 years since the work was completed and we are still as satisfied now as when we first moved back in. If we were to ever undertake a project like this again Sammy would be the only contractor I would consider.

A HIGH-SPEC PRODUCT DELIVERED FOR BOTH PROPERTIES

Following a successful re-furb and basement dig by Sammy and his team at our London home, we were delighted that he accepted the challenge to create our dream home outside Henley-on-Thames. Yet again, following a year of total re-furb he and his team have proven that they can a) work as a team with an array of experts i.e. architects, energy consultants, and lighting consultants, b) deliver a high-spec product on every turn, c) find solutions and alternative ideas when issues arrive, d) come in on budget, and most importantly e) finish on time! Following two such high value re-furbs, we can only recommend him and his team again, and again, and again.
