Clients Testimonials

  • Chris Rowberry

    VINCI Construction

    Having opened numerous Tesco stores, I found the experience of working with Hawes on Hednesford a pleasure. The fitting team were knowledgeable about design standard requirements, and positive in the face of change. The team leader, Dave clearly understood the needs of the project and went above and beyond in completing in the early hours of opening day after being delayed by other trades. Project management was concise and efficient when dealing with change, and adapted quickly to the revised designs issued. Looking forward to the next store in 2013.

  • Lorna Noble


    Going the extra mile to ensure the delivery of our Bury St Edmunds store in preparation for the official launch, you truly demonstrated the Tesco values; no one could have done more to ensure the success of our work

  • Gary Bowers

    Hamble Motors Ltd

    May I say what a pleasure it has been to work with the two crews on site today. The first crew fitted the new totem and left late morning. The second crew fitting the signage will be here for three days. They have all been very polite and helpful; would you please thank them for their ‘can do’ attitude. They have made this project simple and hassle free.

  • Jaci Ginai


    Store looked great. From the signage side, that is down to your management and constant feedback.

  • Allan Manning

    Artelia Group

    I was on site at Old Woking today and thought your guys were exceptional.

  • Chris Buckenham

    Smurfit Kappa

    We are obviously well underway now with the signs appearing. I’m just dropping you a note as the feedback has been extremely positive on how your guys are working and are prepared; communicating with our people and going about the task. Positive feedback isn’t always passed on as much as negative so I thought it worthy.

  • Bob Hamilton

    JP Group

    On behalf of the JP Group and myself, I would like to thank you all for your support and help on a very difficult and demanding contract, completed and opened on time with few problems , thanks again.

  • Mick Whiteaway


    I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for your effort and support in
    arranging crew, etc. to be able to complete this at such short notice, much appreciated.

  • Simon Doyle

    TTG Architects

    Just a note to say thank you for your help and efforts on the external fascia signage at Tesco Metro Whitechapel.
    The final implementation of the external curved fascia sign over the main customer entrance worked out really well.

  • Chris Broadhead

    Mace Group

    Just a quick note to say thanks for your efforts at Ware on what was a difficult scheme especially with the signage pack being changed so many times and the inclusion of the new Asda branding. We look forward to working with you again soon.
