I have just made payment for the Sewer Diversion and just wanted to send a quick email to say thank you for the works carried out by Gary and the team 2 weeks ago.

All members of the team were polite and considerate of our privacy and space during their time here and got on the work without any issue. They worked extremely hard during the week and have done a fantastic job of putting in a very well built sewer. They have also left our garden in a better state than when we started! Hugely grateful and would thoroughly recommend SP Bardwell for anyone needing sewer/pipework’s.

Many thanks again,

We are very pleased with the work done to connect the foul sewer to mains. The work force were very polite and professional, despite raining most of the time, left the site tidy.

We would like to thank S P Bardwell for all the help we have received, especially yourself with the administration work and helping us through it, Rob and the team that carried out the work as well.

Once again thank you very much to everyone for the help you gave us.

Some summary feedback

Building works

  • Timeframes as estimated – 3 days
  • Minimal disruption within local constraints
  • Good quality restoration once underground connection established
  • Very friendly team
  • Slight delay in starting due to documentation/licence issues


  • Job done well, connection seems to work, would recommend to others but would point out to them the different forms of licence application and implications before proceeding

Thanks again for your help

A brief note to say thank you for the work your company undertook to install the new dropped kerb and driveway access ramp at our house in Mayland.

From the outset you were clear about the options available for our new driveway, the likely timescale, explaining the process and the steps your team would take to make sure the installation work didn’t inconvenience our neighbours, which could not be said for another contractor I’d contacted.

Thanks to your office for coordinating licence agreements to enable the work to go ahead.

Our neighbours are happy that the work was no trouble for them, and we’re all pleased with the neat new dropped kerbs and ramps. Above all, I’m grateful to you for being there on the phone whenever I had a question, and especially for accommodating my last minute request to save the bush in the way of the access ramp that I wanted to keep but hadn’t got round to digging up myself. It’s now doing well in its new location in the back garden. A big thanks to your team who did all the hard work, without leaving any mess in the street.

Yours Sincerely,


26th September 2018

We are very satisfied. The guys did an excellent job, very neat, were clean and tidy and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend your services.

Best Wishes,

Thanks again


14th August 2018

Just wanted to drop you a note to say thankyou for all of your support with our new sewer connection. As you are aware we had many months of false starts with this and increasing stress over the failing cess pit.

Your support and practical solution was a breath of fresh air and I do appreciate your help with Southern Water re the connection application. We would also like to pass on our thanks to the crew who carried out the installation – they were brilliant! The week started with torrential rain and ended in a heatwave- they worked non stop despite the rainy/hot weather, we were particularly impressed with the care they took on our neighbours driveway. A great crew who we would happily recommend.

Thanks again

We would just like to say thank you to you and your team for all your hard work. The bridge is brilliant.

Thanks once again,

On behalf of Chelmsford Summer Beer Festival, id like to thank you for the work S P Bardwell recently undertook for us in Admirals Park.

At every stage, from excellent advice, through your coordination of the various parties involved in the section 106 agreement to the installation of the sewer connection itself, SP Bardwell’s attention to detail, professionalism and timely communication were very much appreciated, as was your scheduling of the work at such short notice.

I’ve inspected the connection and it has been carried out to an excellent standard and is exactly what we needed.

Thankyou once more for all your help.

My name is Lewis Cooper. I am the senior technician (supervisor) working under Paul Sirdifield for Essex & Suffolk Water looked after the crew which worked within your works run by your colleague Gary. I would like to express to yourself how grateful we are for firstly allowing us to work alongside S.P Bardwell Ltd which allowed us both to carry out the work required by both parties in a very efficient way.

Secondly I would appreciate it if you could pass on my greatest thanks to Gary working on the site for yourselves. He was very helpful and understanding and went out of his way to allow us to get our work done as well as his own within the scheduled time limit without a single complaint and kept me informed throughout the process and even stayed on to work late to allow us to get on with the task first thing in the morning.

Once again thank you very much.,

Kind Regards

Just a short note to say that Gary Greenaway, your site foreman, has just finished your contracted works on site and he has made an excellent job of the works and it has been a pleasure to work with Gary and his team. He has left the work area tidy and safe at all times.

Despite difficult times with access, his team have been professional and very ‘user friendly’ and there has been nothing but good reports from all on this site.

I will have no hesitation in promoting Gary, his team and your company for future works.

Many Thanks

Just wanted to say a big thank you to you and your team for the works carried out at Bekeswell House.

The easement, section 50, commons consent and other legal / paperwork made the application very stressful but the organisation and work carried out by Bardwells was outstanding.

From yourself and Matt assisting with the section 50 application onwards all communication and planning has been clear and helpful.

Id like to thank Rob and his team for the professional, friendly and considerate work that they carried out. They had to work whilst allowing neighbours access and they were very polite and accommodating causing as little disruption as possible. The drainage chambers look great, everything has been tided up and made good and the finish to the road and track looks fantastic, even down to the detail of adding grass seed to the top soil on the verge. I’m amazed they got that much work done in such a short amount of time.

Il be sure to recommend Bardwells in the future and will use you again if the need arises.

Please pass on my many thanks to everyone involved, very glad we chose you for the works.

Good Morning Matt,
Apologies for being communicated this e-mail earlier but I been attending a training course for the three days. The reason for this email is to give feedback on the work completed at NTL. As a QHSE / Facilities Manager it is reassuring when you work alongside companies that have the same work ethics and provide an excellent service that can be relied upon, trouble free and with minimal business interruptions.

From the first site visit looking at NTL requirements and proposal, to the mandatory documents (RAMS, Insurance etc.) through the completion of the work by Rob and his team. They all worked in a methodical manner, with good housekeeping of materials and equipment, RAMS adhered to (as you area aware all RAMS have to be evaluated by the Client who has ultimate responsibility of safety and monitoring contractors on site). Nothing was too much trouble for the team who left the site clear in readiness for NTL first thing Monday morning. Please pass on these comments to Paul, Rob and their teams and thank them all for working in a professional manner. I look forward to working with you all in the near future. Regards Gary

I would just like to take the time to let you know how very grateful I am for the excellent work carried out by Ben and Lee on my driveway.

Nothing was too much trouble. They were very professional and extremely helpful. They took the time to explain what they were doing re the extensive drainage works being undertaken. This can be quite stressful for the lay client, but their attitude was always reassuring, positive, patient and polite.

Having finished a refurbishment programme I am acutely aware not all professionals work to the same standards. Ben and Lee truly were the ultimate professionals on my job. Thanks so much to them both.

Kind regards

Dear Steve – We meant to email you before to let you know that the service we have received from your company has been excellent all the way through the job; from when Paul came out to access the job, Matt who booked the job in and the two men carried out the job (whose names I apologise for not remembering). Neat, tidy and thoughtful work – thank you. We’ll definitely recommend your company to others.

With best wishes

Please pass our gratitude on to all your staff at Bardwell’s who made the completion of the driveway possible, it has been a long and arduous journey, but we couldn’t be happier with the outcome, I know it’s dark outside, but it looks amazing and it will make our daughters care and support so much easier and safer for her and her carers Thank you.

I would also like to say how impressed we were with Rob and his whole team, the lot of them were courteous, polite and couldn’t do enough to make us feel at ease and the way they worked and the speed they worked at was amazing, every night before they left they cleaned up, ensured we were happy with what was done and kept us up to date with everything so we were not in the dark, Rob is a brilliant individual and it takes a lot to impress my wife, but he and his team did that, please pass on our thanks for their outstanding work and their great attitude, if all your staff are anything like Rob and his team Bardwell’s will continue to go strength to strength.Many thanks and kind regards

Watling hope Wastewater Engineering 1 Goldicote Business Park, Banbury Road Stratford-upon-Avon , Warwickshire.

Dear Steve

The new pumping chamber at Diss is now commissioned and fully operational, and the client is about to issue the certificate of practical completion. It looks a very professional job and looking at it now it is hard to believe what a drama it was to arrive at this point. All credit should go to you, Matt and the team for your skills, advice, understanding and patience in such very challenging conditions, and I hope that you will pass on our thanks to all concerned. I hope that this has not put you off working with us again, and will try to make a point of calling in when in Maldon. With best wishes and thanks again for an excellent job.

Michael Palin
