They were extremely flexible working unsocial hours to complete each project to a high standard.

I can confirm on behalf of the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) that Johns of Nottingham have done a truly first class job & delivered a quality of finish & attention to detail that is arguably the best we have seen on the Athletes Village.

The project as a whole is an exciting major investment in the Forest Fields area of the City, not just for the school, but for the whole community. Refurbishing the Victorian Grade II listed Berridge Centre, along with the existing school buildings, will significantly enhance the whole community, from the improvements to the 'street scene and landscaping as well as allowing more places for pupils to access this very popular school. Decoratively, Johns of Nottingham Limited have managed to impart the smart, 21st century finish expected of a modern school, whilst maintaining the craftsmanship essential to the painstaking preparation and attention to detail in the restoration of an historic flagship building.
Helen Wallace, Project Manager Major Programmes, Nottingham City Council

"Mark Tunstall who led the project says "Inspire Luton Sport Village was always going to be a little more demanding and challenging than your 'normal' build, particularly the main pool hall. We chose Johns of Nottingham for the wealth of experience they bring both in general painting and specialist finishes. Johns of Nottingham are a very professional unit, coordinating daily events with my site team and their dedicated qualified workforce, producing a 1st class finish. The quality of supervision and tradesmen was second to none and I would like to thank all involved at 'Johns' for their efforts in handing over this prestigious building......" "

I have heard others speak highly of Johns Of Nottingam but never worked with you personally and would like to state that, from my experience on this project, you stand clear from other decorating companies that I have worked with. My impression, and recommendation of Johns Of Nottingam to others, is that you have good quality directly employed labour, dedicated on site supervision and effective procedures to manage your works"
Steve Jerman-Collis, Project Manager. ISG Jackson
"Johns of Nottingham have been involved with myself on numerous projects over the last 14 years and the continual experience has been one of outstanding performances and service to deliver projects to a very high standard and quality, many of which have been to onerous programme constraints Johns of Nottingham continue to deliver and I would recommend them to other clients as a trade contractor that works proactively with the management team to ensure the success of the project."

I would like to extend my thanks to all at Johns of Nottingham for the service I received recently, from the kitchen planning stage to installation., the bedroom planning and installation and tradesmen you employ Thanking Tony and all the tradesmen who refurbished my home, the painter and decorator was also first class!!! The work was carried out in a courteous and efficient manner with Tony consulting and helping me at all times through a very traumatic time.
Mrs J Hand
We would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the professionalism and due care and consideration shown to us by the builders and all concerned in the repairs to our home after the trauma of the chimney collapsing. We would happily recommend the company's involved to anyone who requires them. The work was of the highest quality and our home was always left clean and secure after each visit.
In your profession I am sure that you have lots of people who make the time to write you a complaint letter or email but I wanted to make the time to write to you about the great team that have just finished the underpinning at Orchard House. It was a significantly bigger job that I thought. However, this team were extremely professional, very competent with a high work rate which gave us confidence of the work carried out. Their work ethic meant that they were at the house before daybreak (following a drive more than an hour down the M1) and worked really hard in bitter cold conditions until it was too dark to work. They were very communicative about the work for the next day and tried to be proactive about minimising the disruption to us. Even my neighbours and other villagers commented about their politeness and their work rate.
Thank you for completing the repair, redecoration to my home .. The service we received from 'Johns was first class .. Always prompt, honest, tidy & explained for the customer to understand .. We found all of the trades who work for 'Johns to be polite & diligent professional people .. The contract was finished on time & we were kept informed of any updates through out the work period .. We have no hesitation to recommend 'Johns to future customers .. Wishing you all the best ..
