Testimonials

Contracting SQC Plant Ltd to work on our Project was a pleasure from start to finish. From the initial contact with the Request For a Quote, the subsequent communications, understanding, and the manner in which all our concerns were professionally addressed, was a delight. The Project was completed with a quality finish, on time and within the agreed schedule. This completion was especially thanks to the onsite SQC Plant team who were skilled, polite, and extremely persistent and hardworking throughout their time on Unst. During the initial site visit by SQC Plants Construction Manager, Phil Morris, we knew we were going to be in good hands when the Works commenced, with his calm, experienced and knowledgeable demeanour shining through, which, as CM , he also showed when directing his team on site. The entire site team was a credit to SQL Plant Ltd on this Project, especially given both the weather and site problems these types of Works can throw at contractors. I am certain anyone who Contracts SQC Plant Ltd in the future to execute their own projects, be it Commercial or Private, will experience the same quality finish, and professional and diligent attitude.

“We feel the work has been excellent, to a high level and that you care about trying to get the best result for us as clients. Everyone we’ve dealt with in the company is polite, friendly and considerate. Knowing that Phil is available at the end of the phone and that action will be taken if we have concerns has also been reassuring. We’ve seen good and bad contractors during the building of the house – SQC is definitely at the top end in quality and customer care.” Best wishes Paul

After having a rather "unusual" dry stone garden feature constructed by a local stonemason, we are really delighted with the way SQC Plant Ltd have worked with us to make what is quite a difficult shaped area into quite a stunning patio area using Riven Harena slabs and stone chips. While the work has been in progress, the boys have constantly asked if I am happy with progress and made helpful suggestions along the way to ensure we would be happy with the finished project. Really pleased with the job Ryan and the team have done, a fine friendly bunch of lads to have around

We are very happy with the end result of our surfaced driveway and Tegula paving in front of the house. The initial discussion of the project and planning meant that our our expectations were met in terms of appearance and cost. Every effort was made to minimise inconvenience during the works despite some difficult weather conditions. A job well done. Kind regards, Aileen

'Excellent communication from start to finish, which makes a real difference. We are delighted with the quality of the finish on the road, and the area around the house has now converted into a multi-sports arena for the bairns, who are on it with bikes, scooters and balls everyday!'

We are very happy with the job, it's all come together nicely - everything went well and kept to a timescale which was good for us due to our situation. You never left us without access or parking. Ross and the boys were absolutely brilliant to work with. Giving that you only had a simple brief and plans you've done exactly what we were looking for. I don't think there's much that could be improved on, you seem to have a good bunch of boys and nothing was ever a problem. I have recommended you to a couple of friends that are needing work done. A problem that Shetland has is that nobody wants the small jobs like ours and it's good that you can do this. Thank you for the help. If we need anything in the future I will definitely be in touch.

Thank you very much for the excellent driveway installation carried out at Carrowbreck, Ham Bressay. The finish looks great and matches the proposed layout and the verbally agreed alterations and additions. I have had several complementary remarks regarding the design and finish and look forward to working with you in the future on the completion of the fencing and stone walling.

The installation of our driveway was done timeously, to the specification, and at the price quoted and for you to show the work to prospective customers.
