Crushing and Screening

“The information that Lloyd has given is great, very detailed, I have got to say that from the first day on site that Woods have been very competent and professional, from the very comprehensive safety documentation file which Lloyd gave me with all the training records and safety paper work already completed, to the way the guys doing the job did so in a very safe and confident way, I never had to ask for any forms off the lads all the tonnage sheets, fuel sheets and daily inspection handed in without fail. We do get lots of good contractors on site but Woods definitely stand out for me and I would have no problem recommending them for future work.” Hanson at Wigan

Gritting and Snow Clearance

“Thank-you for making sure that the snow and ice was cleared so well and gritted for our Buxton DHQ, Chapel and Matlock sites this winter

A number of people have said to me how much they appreciated the work that has been done and it was a relief to many to find that the car parks, paths and roads were clear after difficult journeys into work for many.

The Executive Officers in force have asked me in particular if you would please convey their personal thanks to all of your staff and contractors with snow ploughs and gritting equipment who have had the inconvenience of turning out over this freezing weekend and at all other times this winter in the really bad weather to ensure we remain operational. All your staff do a great job for us in wintertime. It is very much appreciated by everyone here.” Derbyshire Constabulary

 

“The service from your staff has been excellent, please convey our thanks to them, not least for being out there all hours, in all weather conditions. This service has been a huge help to us managing to keep these operational police stations working in adverse weather as we have insufficient resources to do this ourselves, thank you.” Operations Manager, Derbyshire Constabulary

“I must say we were so impressed by your response to the telephone message that we left with you on Sunday 8th June that the drains were blocked at our property in Sheldon. We expected to ring you after 8am the following morning when your office opened, but you phoned us at 7-40am! Your response was brilliant! The outcome was that James Beesley arrived at 9am and was so courteous and efficient in resolving our problem. Please pass on our thanks to all concerned. Thank you so much for your excellent service.” Richard and Ann Tomlinson

 

“Your John Hattersley did a marvellous professional planning job for us and the work was carried out speedily and excellently by your two workers on the ground – I think it was an eye-opener to our neighbours’ contractor to see how the work ought to have been done on our drain and ditch! We can’t thank you enough for coming out at such short notice and fitting in the work the following week. We will certainly be recommending your company at every opportunity. Again, many thanks for a good job done.” Nicolas Broadhurst, Buxworth

Many thanks.” Mike and Caroline

He did a terrific job under the most difficult circumstances – from getting the tanker here to finding a way of getting the pipes to the septic tank (over a wall, down a bank, across the stream and up the other side). He was constantly good-humoured and committed throughout, even though he ended up working in the dark! I’ve never known anyone show as much commitment to getting the job done – and done well”. Phil Radcliffe, Radcliffe Associates

Contracting Works

“Woods performance has made project management a simpler far less stressful activity for all concerned. Keep it coming!” Nigel Weedon, Longcliffe

 

“We have developed a strong working relationship with Woods through the construction of a Hydro Electric project in 2014/15. We have since worked on a number of projects successfully from the demolition of farm building, road crossings and the installation of a 250Kw PV scheme. Woods communicate well with all parties involved in the works, complete works in a timely manor and we would recommend them as a contractor.” Ian McKenzie, Fisher German http://www.fishergerman.co.uk/.    

 

“As the slope remediation project work is virtually complete I would like to ask that you pass on my sincere appreciation with the Operators and other staff members that have been involved in the project. This work was complex and potentially difficult to execute but the operations have been carried out with the utmost care and diligence throughout, in accordance with the Safe Systems of work that I imposed. Additionally, the scaling work done by your excavator operators has allowed us to exceed that specified in the originally design, thus allowing us to create a better rock slope profile than we anticipated and avoid the need for rock netting and bolting. We now have a much safer environment for our staff to work in.” Jason South, Quarry Operations Manager, Tarmac
