"Our experience of working with R L Davies & Son Ltd on Oriel Mostyn has been superb.
The commitment and enthusiasm of their entire team both on site and back at their
head office has led to a dynamic and very productive
relationship which has contributed greatly to the success of the building. Their
collaborative and proactive way of working with us as client and with the whole of
the design team has enabled this complicated and demanding scheme to be brought in
within our budget constraints and to programme. In particular, to agree the final
account figure some 5 months before completion and then manage the works to maintain
this figure has been a truly commendable achievement.
I have no reservations whatever in recommending R L Davies in the highest terms –
and indeed have already done so to all who have asked me about our experience of
working with them."
"We found RL Davies & Son Ltd to be cooperative and easy to deal with at every leve.
A spirit of partnering developed between the Client, Consultants and RL Davies &
Son Ltd during the works. This enabled an agreement to be formalised between the
Client and Contractor which saw RL Davies & Son Ltd manage the Client's cost risk
and agree the final cost of the project months before completion.
We would have no hesitation in recommending RL Davies & Son Ltd to any client."

"Despite working to very tight timescales and strict deadline, your team handed the
facilities over to the Authority at the end of August on time, thus ensuring that
there was sufficient time for our staff to fully commission the facilities allowing
our team to offer a full catering service from the start of the new term.
I am informed that this was due, in no small part, to the excellent on site management
of your team and I would be obliged if you could pass our appreciation for all their

"The Site Manager was a credit to the Company and ensured that effective teamwork
and communication on site and with partners took place. The standard of workmanship
was excellent ... Conwy were delighted with the finish and the local community very
proud of having such a fantastic scheme in their locality. Having visited numerous
Extra Cares across Wales as part of the research before developing our own, I am
convinced that Llanrwst is currently one of the leading schemes in terms of design
and build quality across Wales"

"The works have been undertaken under challenging conditions whilst the site has
continued to be operational... We are very pleased with the standard of workmanship,
the co-operation of the staff and the subcontractors and teh management of the contract
as well as with the ease of communication with the management and their appreciation
of the complexities of funding a project which has a range of funders and unusual
challenges to provide modern facilities in listed building.
We offer our full recommendation and wish RL Davies every success in gaining more
work for their talented team."

"RLD performed well on a very confined school site. Despite several constraints,
the project was delivered on time and on budget. The rapport between the school and
RLD was excellent, primarily through good liaison between the two parties. RLD were
very flexible in their approach throughout the project and werehappy to alter their
programme to assist with the smooth efficient running of the school if requested."
