Mr F. Hereford applied for a DFG through Herefordshire Council to improve the access to the front of his property for his disabled son.


“It’s pretty exemplary and we never envisioned it to look this good…”


Why did you choose GB Electrical & Building Services Ltd to complete the work?

We applied for a disabled facilities grant through Herefordshire Council and GB were one of the three contractors which were shortlisted for the job. The bulk of the project was covered by the grant but we added some of our own funds to tailor the finish to our own taste.


Did the service meet your expectations?

Yes, the builders were absolutely brilliant. They were always very engaging and discussed with us our options if things had to change slightly. Jason, the project manager was very good at communicating and was the conduit that held everything together. The surveyor and the Council were the weak link in the project and it was only through Jason’s engagement and effort that the project pulled together.


How has it impacted your daily life?

It’s great, definitely exceeded our expectations and has met our requirements. It’s pretty exemplary and we never envisioned it to look this good. We now have a parking space adjacent to the property, level pathway which helps with mobility and has future proofed us should our son require his wheelchair more often. 


If you were to recommend us, what would you say?

Oh yes, definitely. Like I said Jason was very good and competent in the absence of the Council and the builders Marius and Gary were amazing throughout.
