    Skerritts are a very important supply chain member to us and have the ability and resources to provide guidance/advice at tender stage to a high standard on mechanical and electrical works. On site performance is very good in relation to safety, quality and programme. They also always play a prominent part in the Working Well Together initiative. Clearing of defects are well managed and rectified in a correct and timely manner.

    Having worked on a great many projects with Skerritt Electrical, we are pleased to see them selected for new projects. They are communicative and professional through the design stages and their installations are to a very high standard, with the few items of remedial work taken care of quickly and without complaint. We are happy to put them forward for a great variety of projects.

    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.
