Little Ridge School main reception works:
“Thank you for your hard work on our behalf, both during the lead up to and then during completion of the work. You, and the team you employed here showed yourselves to be extremely professional, efficient and easy to work with. I was particularly impressed with the ‘can do’ attitude everyone showed, especially when the odd unexpected glitch arose.

Everyone involved with the school, from head, governors and staff to the parents, pupils and myself, are very pleased with the outcome of the project and the benefits it’s bringing to the school. I can see why your company is on the ESCC’s approved list and will certainly be contacting you again when we need further works done. I’ll also be recommending you to colleagues in other schools who might be considering building project themselves.” Dean Lennard, School Business Manager

Sussex Police Headquarters – TFU refurbishment:
“I would like to thank the team at Farringtons for the work on the Tactical Firearms Unit accommodation refurbishment. The works have been extremely well received by the Operations Department and the end users the Tactical Firearms Unit. The facility was on show when Princess Anne visited in April, all the comments received have been very complimentary and positive. Well done and thank you.”
John McGrath, Buildings Officer, Police Headquarters

Sandbanks, Hailsham:
“On behalf of the Social Services Learning Disability Team I would like to express our thanks and gratitude for the speed and efficiency of your staff in carrying out the works to the above property.

I appreciate that we were working to tight time scales but, at all times, everyone was extremely co-operative and courteous with a ‘can do’ attitude to the extra work that was involved to ensure the site was ready for inspection by the National Care Standards Commission (NCSC). Particular thanks must go to the site manager who was very helpful and made sure that the last pieces of work were completed before the final NCSC inspection.

Once again on behalf of all of us thank you and your staff for the excellent service you have given.
Debbie Endersby, Head of Learning Disability Services

Single storey extension forming new bathroom, bedroom and external lift:
“Just a note to say thanks for the excellent work you did for us. Your personal hands on approach to the finishing touches was much appreciated. Your boys who were permanently on site were brilliant, humorous and very helpful. You all made the job a lot less stressful than it could have been I will recommend Farringtons without hesitation.” Trevor & Claire Parsons, Brighton

Snooker room extension with bedroom and bathroom above and hallway front entrance: “Without fail, every story I have every heard regarding ‘having in the builders’ has been tainted with ‘what a nuisance’, ‘what a mess’, ‘how rude and noisy they were’, and invariably ‘never again!’

Whether it was luck, or our ‘judgment’ in appointing Farrington’s as the builders I can say that it has been a comparative pleasure. Your team showed courtesy at all times and were very pleasant on site; you all got on with the work instead of sitting around – this was particularly notable during the appalling weather at the beginning of the project; no challenge was too big – the standard response was ‘not to worry’ or ‘no trouble’; and above all well done for meeting the xmas deadline.

We would therefore both like to say a big ‘thank you’ for the way in which the job was undertaken. We will have no hesitation in recommending you to all our friends and acquaintances, and should we build ‘another wing’, would hope that you could once again undertake the work for us.” Henri and Alison Cash

Extension to property in Eastbourne:
“I wanted to express our appreciation for the efficiency and constant consideration shown to us during the building works. Everyone has been so polite and pleasant, and what could have been really stressful has been almost a pleasure. The extension in our opinion is brilliant and that is largely due to the excellent workmanship.” Mandy & Neil Bird
