I was the project architect for a fantastic house build with SDA. The whole team worked hard to make sure the project was executed perfectly, and the finish is superb. I highly recommend SDA, with Sammy at the helm, and Dumitru on site, to anyone looking to create a very special house, without putting up with the usual contractor problems. They kept the site tidy, safe, well organised, and worked tirelessly. From a professional point of view, the valuations were spot on, with SDA showing honesty and integrity in their calculations of the value of work done. I know that when Sammy calls me, it's a project I want to be involved in.

Total demolition and rebuild while we lived in the house

Sammy and his team completed a total demolition and rebuild job for us. Sammy is highly experienced and was very committed to delivering a quality product. His team produced a great finish and everyone at SDA was very polite and courteous which was great as we were living in the house at the end with two small children. I would happily recommend Sammy as someone who takes pride in his work and has the skill and experience to deliver.

I have worked with Sammy and his team on 2 projects i.e. one in London (a couple of years previously) and the other in the Oxfordshire, the 2nd project bigger than the first. He and the team, delivered within the agreed budget, and in the time-line proposed, and moreover to the highest of standards. He works seamlessly with architects, lighting companies, and garden designers, ensuring a well driven project.

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.

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!
