  • We have used Skerritts for the past five years on a variety of schemes including retail, residential, education and commercial. The quality of their service is excellent from tender stage to project sign off. They have been involved on a number of schemes for us where we have a requirement for BREEAM or The Code for Sustainable Homes. Skerritts have always been proactive in working with us and our consultants to help us achieve these requirements.  We would have no hesitation in recommending Skerritts.
