Trox UK Testimonial

“TROX UK engaged Mixbrow to build an 1800 square metre warehouse at the back of our Thetford manufacturing site, together with an underground car park. The project was completed on time and on budget in February 2019. We are absolutely delighted with the end result. The project team worked extremely well together. All participants were easy to work with, highly competent, complimentary and constructive – there were excellent relationships formed between all parties in the team. The design work was completed efficiently and cleverly to deliver the requirements within a demanding budget. Planning proceeded smoothly and the build was completed on time. The site management managed the construction site safely and efficiently. There was very little room on site once the building started to go up, and Mixbrow site management worked very closely with the TROX team to ensure no disruption to our factory operations during the construction phases. Communication was good at all times. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Mixbrow for similar projects elsewhere. We would be happy to give references upon request.”

New Farm Barn, Shelland – Testimonial

“Thank you for building us a fabulous new home and for all the support and advice throughout the process. You set very clear expectations of what you expected from us as the customer and what we could expect from you as main contractor. Any issues (and they were very few for a project this size) were handled swiftly and professionally. The care and quality shown by all workers was evident and Mick had excellent control of the site at all times. Mick’s attention to detail was exactly what we needed and he treated the project like it was his own. Overall, I would and in fact already have, recommend Mixbrow for similar projects.”  Martin Jewers, New Farm, Shelland.
