Broadway Medical Centre, Pam Wreford, Practice Manager

Helm had to set up a temporary surgery for us whilst they built the new one. The Helm team maintained strong relationships throughout the process with the Medical Centre team and the local residents who were involved with the Village Hall next door and the strong sense of community was embraced by Helm throughout. I am full of praise for Helm and their strong approach to service.

Niblett Architecture, Neil Niblett, Practice Principle

Helm Construction was awarded the JCT Minor Works building contract to carry out internal alterations to Bradley Stoke Surgery. It was a condition of the contract that all works were to be completed within a very tight timeline.

The works needed to be phased so as to allow the surgery to continue to function with the minimal amount of inconvenience and disruption. Helm Construction carried out the works to a high standard, within budget and most importantly on time.

Their organisation and programming allowed for a smooth and well planned sequence of works causing no disruption to the critical running of a very busy medical practice.

PBA Consultants, Colin Goode

The Project demanded malleability and initiative from the Main Contractor selected along with an understanding of the unique requirements listed buildings invariably demand. Helm consistently demonstrated enthusiasm, skill and a high degree of ‘commerciality’ on this project ensuring that the Client, Apartment Owners and Surveyor were kept informed and happy throughout.

Concord Medical Centre, Dawn McCaffrey, Practice Manager

The whole process was trouble and pain free. The Helm team were always accessible and were mindful at all times that we were operating a busy surgery. We are highly impressed by the standard of work and the way in which Helm attended to the small amount of minor snags we identified after the building was completed.

Chipping Sodbury Baptist Church, Minister Paul Harding

We were able to continue full schedule of services and meetings while Helm got on with the work around us. We are very pleased with the results and the refurbishment has been very positively received by the community. Although we have had to operate within a much smaller floor space Helm have been really helpful keeping any disruption to the congregation to the absolute minimum.

Filton Avenue Nursery, Sarah Woodfield, Deputy Head

Our main contractor had to be mindful that we were still operating a large and busy children’s nursery. Helm has created a beautiful building that is a real addition to the school and did so without disruption completing ahead of time and on budget. Well done Helm!

Pilning Surgery, Dr Terry Paterson, Practice Partner

I would recommend Helm because of my better than expected experience that I had on a project to extend my general practice premises. They have managed to produce a quality product in advance of the projected time and achieved completion economically, including variations from the original plan. Their ethos, attitude and culture of listening and actioning was acutely tuned to the client, Pilning Surgery. Their unfaltering ‘can do’ approach was very impressive.

Foresight PM, Richard Farr, Director

Helm has been the main contractor on two phases of our office to residential conversions in Nailsea, Bristol. They have produced a total of 10 flats to a high standard of workmanship. They offer a very proactive and user friendly service which eases the stresses of project delivery and detailing. We welcome the opportunity to work with their professional and enthusiastic team again on other projects and we are pleased they have won a tender for one of our new build mixed use commercial and residential schemes in Knowle.

Complete Project, Tony Dowie, Director

We have found Helm’s team to be refreshingly co-operative with a truly collaborative approach to all elements of the scheme with a hands on approach from the Director down. Helm brings a level of client side understanding that sets them apart from others and makes them a contractor of choice when considering our future projects. We have no hesitation in recommending Helm Construction.

Ashley Homes, Peter James

I really can’t sing Helm’s praises enough. They were initially tasked with constructing 4 luxury detached houses near Wells and despite adverse ground conditions and tight operating space they produced 4 excellent units to a very high standard within time and on budget. Since this they have been selected to undertake a number of additional projects for us with equal success.

Clifton Homes, John Amos, Director

The Helm team were magnificent in their approach, enthusiasm, team work and commitment to completing the works to an exceptionally high standard in often difficult circumstances. My clients are in turn highly impressed by the high standard of finish and the aftercare they have received from Helm.

Griffon Developments, Jonathon Morgan, Director

Helm does exactly what they say are going to do when they say they are going to do it. This was a particularly difficult site but you would not have perceived this from the smooth way the build happened. A great standard of finish all round and I am already talking to Helm for my next project.

CRL, Lloyd Williams, VP of Sales

Helm Construction are a pleasure to work with, we have worked on a number of projects together all have been completed to a high standard within a smooth process. I would happily work with Helm Construction in the future, they are overall a great company.

Russell Bloomfield

We were really pleased with the finished result. From their vast experience Helm were able to recommend improvements to our design and overcome issues identified with the existing structure. They were sensitive to our budget and have produced a building that is of very high quality that we are proud to call our home.

Dr Roland Watura

Helm did a magnificent job for us. They were attentive to our needs, helped us throughout the build process and we are very happy with the end result.

Ian Selway

Thank you. It’s one thing to have a great builder carry out a renovation and extension build, but it’s quite another thing to have a builder that is attentive to after care service and willing to attend and fix problems. I cannot fault Helm in this regard.

Sarah Hanson

 The workmanship was excellent and without exception all who worked on the extension were very professional and particularly considerate that they were working on the home in which we were living.

Keith Smith

The Helm team were great throughout.  They made it all look so easy.  I cannot praise them enough

St. Peter’s Church, Jonathan Edwardes, Church Warden, St. Peter’s Church.

The Helm team made the process easy delivering our project on time and on budget – well done Helm!

Wellington Road Surgery, Ann Magham – Practice Manager

From the very beginning it was clear that Helm had our best interests at heart and they did a tremendous job on the building of the extension to the surgery.

Chatsworth Homes

You are very fortunate to have such good people working for you and we are fortunate to have engaged you to do the work.
