“‘Prior to our first basement dig we had meetings with 5 different basement contractors. Immediately following those meetings, we all agreed that our preference, by far, was Paul McLaughlin from Structural London Ltd. They have since become one of our most highly regarded contractors. We have since had absolutely no hesitation in giving them our basement contracts on all our developments. They fulfil their contracts, on and off site, with complete professionalism, honesty and integrity all the way down from management to the basement workers. They have NEVER deviated from the original prices quoted through to the end of the job, unless we have increased their scope of works – something that we have frequently done on many occasions, with no hesitation. We would not think twice in using Structural London Ltd on all our future jobs, and would therefore be delighted to recommend Paul and his team to anyone even thinking about undertaking a job of this nature.”

James Lloyd, Director – Porthminster Ltd

” We instructed Structural London to carry out our Project late in 2012, a 1000sq ft basement in South West London. After meeting with several other potential companies it was evident that Paul was clearly experienced in his field and that his method of carrying out the work was far superior to others. He was able to explain exactly how the work was to be carried out in the safest possible way and he could highlight potential problems before they arose. He boasts a wealth of knowledge in not just the civil work side of things but in the interior fit out as well. The after service we have received since has been comprehensive also, something which I think can get overlooked. Our basement was started and completed on time. The work was carried out in a safe manner with full adherence to all current health and safety requirements. I would recommend Structural London to anybody who is looking to undertake this type of work as they will give you peace of mind in knowing the job is being done correctly. ”

Matt Butler, Project Manager – Faccenda Properties Ltd

“I would just like to say a very big thank you for the fantastic work you carried out for me on the above project. The client is delighted with the end result, which is great for all concerned, but quite often they never see the complexity of the work undertaken and what is required to ensure a quality job is delivered on time,in budget and safely. My project manager was very impressed with the professionalism and and sheer hard work that your team put in and we both look forward to working with you again. ”

Ian Hartley, Owner – IJS Developments

” We have worked with Structural London Ltd on a number of projects since their formation. Paul has amalgamated years of experience and contacts into an impressive structure that provides a service that is second to none.The whole team are real professionals, and it is a pleasure to work with them. From their management team, right down to the workers on site, nothing is too much trouble, and they always go out of their way to help.Our reputation is of the utmost importance, so it’s vital to us to team up with businesses who are equally well-respected. Their expertise and service is unrivalled and they are still able to be highly competitive with their pricing, which makes them the perfect partner for contractors who have their reputations and budgets to consider.”
