Testimonials

“AG Hill Chartered Building Services Engineers have worked successfully with Hightown Construction on several projects across the University spectrum. Hightown proved that they are very client orientated and non-contractual, open to advice and ideas from outside of their structure with a very flexible and progressive attitude to construction delivery, more akin to the partnering arrangements suggested by Latham as the ideal methodology with which to approach construction, as opposed to the more common adversarial method”.
Allan Hill C.Eng., MCIBSE, MSLL, A.G. Hill Chartered Building Services Engineers
Hightown Group are a competent and professional general building contractor who have worked for many years at Liverpool John Moore’s University undertaking reactive maintenance and principle contractor roles.
Colin Davies, Director of Estates Management Liverpool John Moores University
“We have worked with Hightown Group on a number of projects over the past 3 years varying from new build to fullrefurbishment utilising traditional procurement, design and build and partnering. One of Hightown Construction main strengths is with their communications. Immediate access is always available with the directors. Reporting systems are simple and clear. If asked “Would you work with this contractor again?” Our response would be definitely”.
