I wish the future sub contractors I employ would work like these guys!

“I would just like to say how impressed I was with Matt and Ross who finished on the job yesterday at Fairwinds, Coverack yesterday! They have been there the last two weeks removing the external asbestos which wasn’t easy for them given the site obstacles. They are the best subcontractors that have been on the site so far and I wish the future sub contractors I employ would work like these guys!! They never complained once and were very helpful to us as we were them. I would not hesitate to recommend your company in the future given the work ethics these guys have shown. These guys are a credit to your team!!”

They went above and beyond


“I have to say we were stunned by the two chaps who came to remove my mum’s ancient storage heater yesterday. From the moment they arrived they were completely focused on making sure that the job was done perfectly.

They tried lifting the heater: it was incredibly heavy and up a curving flight of stairs. They were determined to get it out nevertheless: after discussion they decided that the safest way was for them to suit up, seal off the area, and take some of the bricks out. This meant waking up my 85 year old mum and getting her out whilst they did the job. She was a bit anxious about this but your two chaps were nothing but polite, respectful, kind and thoughtful with her.

My husband and I cannot speak highly enough of these two men. Within the hour we had a phone call saying the job was complete and we could bring mum back. When we got back the place was immaculate and the heater had gone. What a relief!

We were so impressed by how lovely the two chaps were that we tried to offer them a tip: this was refused with the words:’ It’s enough for us to do a good job.’ Wow.

These two are an absolute credit to your company. They went above and beyond to make sure this job was done on time and done well, and that a rather anxious old lady was not upset, rushed, worried or flustered. They treated her with total respect and kindness.”

The extra mile


“The project was quite a complex process, with the Management of Electrical Contractor ensuring electrical services safely removed and disconnected of the walls and ceiling of the Main Boiler house. Gwella did a great job working closely with other Contractors, ensuring that the overall project ran smoothly and efficiently. The Gwella team did a really professional job of the quilling back to bare brick and concrete. They went the extra mile, identifying additional areas that had been discovered during works and got those works done in a very timely fashion and were praised by Vinci and DIO. Looking forward to working with Gwella on any of our future projects.”

Outstanding service provided by your company


Dear Team @ Gwella contracting services

Wanted to provide some direct feedback about the outstanding service provided by your company.

We are currently going through renovations on our home in Newquay Cornwall. We found asbestos in our ceilings of the whole first floor of our house, all the tradesmen on site could not recommend any companies to deal with the problem, so we had to search and find someone who could help, it is important to note at this point we are naive to building works and really had no clue what we were doing, in short we were running blind and had no idea how to deal with this.

After a Google search and contacting a few companies we came across Gwella – this is where are challenge became easy. The reason for this was because of how you, as a company, handled are enquiry.

From the first call everything was explained in simple terms, you found solutions to some difficult issues we faced, you were clear on price and timeframes but, more importantly, you listened to what we needed doing and kept finding solutions, your team on the end of the phone just kept us calm and offered knowledgeable advise.

Due to the nature of the build and this unexpected challenge we needed a quick response, I was hopeful at best of my unrealistic time frame, however you managed it, calls were made and you came back in a few hours and everything was set up. Within 3 days the team were on site.

When living in a house during renovations it it very difficult because trades have to work around you, your team were outstanding, respectful at all times, professional with a lovely balance of being engaging and being good people.

The price we paid shocked all the trades on site being such good value for the work needed to be done, work ethic by the team was excellent, once in they didn’t stop , kept the environment clean and safe whilst they worked.

To summarise; the quality of work and customer service provided by Gwella was outstanding, we can’t thank you enough for everything you did for us, I have already recommended you to all, one of trades guys contacted me only the other morning asking the name of your firm.

Excellent all round.

They were both wonderful


“Two of your chaps removed asbestos at mine last week. On their last day I had a nasty fall. I wanted to thank them for all they did. They called an ambulance and kept me as calm and comfortable as possible, laid out on the road. They were both wonderful but I don’t know how to contact them to say so. I broke my arm and damaged my face, but without them I could still be laid out on the small country lane. Thank you. Anne xxxx”

Very professional and prompt service


“Gwella have recently carried-out removal of a section of AIB tiles for MEC at Derriford hospital. From start to finish they offer a very professional and prompt service. I had a site engineer come out in a timely manner to survey the works, their knowledge and experience was extremely reassuring. Following this, an in depth easy to understand quotation was produced at a very competitive rate.

Once employed, the communication was excellent and everything happened in line with what was put across in the quotation.

The guys that attended site, from the scaffolders to the guys removing the asbestos, were all very courteous and professional and were happy to assist wherever possible.

The paperwork for the removal was issued correctly and completed first time around.

It was a pleasure to have you working with us and will definitely be using again.”

Ollie, Operations Director - FSS
November 2, 2022

Professional approach


We engaged with Gwella during a tendering process for a demolition project as part of a wider scope of works at Brune Park School. Tom and the rest of the team at Gwella, immediately attended site to survey an existing 2 storey classroom block approximately 1000sqm. They were pro-active in their review of the R+D and asbestos survey to ensure a collaborative scope of works was agreed.

Communications during the tender process was exemplary, meaning we were fully informed at each stage enabling us to meet the critical path and budget envelope.

Their professional approach was mirrored on-site during the asbestos removal works. Again, we were fully informed throughout the process with weekly site reports, and updates. With asbestos being such a sensitive material, within an operating school, H+S needed to be at the forefront, which it most certainly was, with their Contracts Manager and Site Manager being extremely knowledgeable and professional throughout.

If future opportunities arose, we would most certainly be engaging their services again.

November 2, 2022

Attention to detail


“Gwella Contracting Services have provided a wide range of services for me, and have always done so in a timely, competitive and safe manner.
