The work at St. Cadoc{s Church has been done to a very high standard, and as important for us, with great consideration for local people and visitors using the church and for the population of rare bats which had to be protected.  The work started and finished on the agreed dates and there were no hidden extras.

We recently employed Thorteck as the Main contractor for maintenance works to St. Mary’s Parish Church, Newent. Most of the work was at high level requiring specialist access provided by Thorteck, or in areas of High Risk around the bells, or above the ceiling requiring the provision and use of safety harnesses at all times.  The work required a high level of co ordination and flexibility to ensure completion for Sunday services.

The church fabric involved in this work all dates from 1675 or before, and required a considerable amount of care and protection.

The work by Thorteck was completed entirely to our satisfaction, requiring creative and innovative approaches to the difficult access situations whilst at all times ensuring safety of the workers and the church.The work was completed on time such that normal services could resume on Sunday as planned, and the work was completed to cost and within budget.Thorteck were very attentive to the needs of the church as a place of worship and as a building of historic importance.The site was kept secure at all times and was left clean & tidy on completion, such that the church cleaners were very impressed.

I found Steve Burchell the Director of Thorteck professional, honest, open, concerned for the church, attentive to our needs, very straightforward, and easy to deal with; this attitude also extended to all his staff and particularly the foreman employed on the work, they were competent in all respects and I would be very pleased to have them work for us again in the future.
