"Many thanks to Lane and Skillen for a superb solution to some very difficult problem areas. Your suggestions proved to be the complete answer to problematic excavation work with the provision of efficient manpower and heavy plant equipment. Your team were outstanding and the job was completed on time and within budget. I would highly recommend Lane and Skillen for excavation or building work. Thank you again".

"We would like to say a big thank you to Lane and Skillen for the structual work they have undertaken on our extension. We knocked our kitchen through to our dinning room to make it one open space. They worked closely with our Architect and Structual Engineer. The project was finished on time and with little disruption to the rest of the house. We are delighted with the service we received and highly recommend them to anyone looking for building work of any kind".

"We have found Lane and Skillen to be an extremely competent/safe and co-operative to deal with. They coped remarkably well with all the variations and changes that a busy design and build contract can throw up. Commercialy we found them to be very easy to work with and highly recommend them for any commercial or industrial project presented to them".
