Greenergy

"We first met Stirling Grey during our tender process for our Tamworth facility. From the very outset the team that Giles brought together was friendly, pragmatic and above all efficient. They really got to know us, understood our national business and appreciated the differing needs of our various offices. Stirling Grey won the initial tender process based upon Jodi's design and their competitive pricing, but what has also shone subsequently is their ability to respond very quickly to changing circumstances. The office was designed with full flexibility in mind, future-proofing it for ongoing change in our fast growing business. As the Greenergy project team was geographically detached from the site during construction, we particularly appreciated the regular and detailed project updates. The project manager kept us fully informed with weekly photographic site reports, fully documenting all minutes and detailing the progression of the project. The works were completed on time and on budget and the guys were immaculately tidy, making our move back into the office straightforward. We have continued to use Stirling Grey across our business and they have completed further projects in London and Manchester. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to others as our relationship continues to grow. "

Harvest Energy

"Stirling Grey were helpful, professional and came up with the most effective and efficient use of our new space. They fully designed, fitted out and installed all of the new furniture for us, and it all went without a hitch. Our project manager, Amanda, held weekly progress meetings on site, which kept us fully informed of exactly what had happened and what was about to happen. This also highlighted to us, when we needed to make decisions to keep the process as smooth as possible. The financials were clear and transparent resulting in no unforeseen expenditure. I'd happily recommend Stirling Grey whether for design, fit-out or furniture installation. We wish them all the very best for the future and very much hope to be able to work with them again."

The Back Office Group

"Although only a relatively small project we chose Stirling Grey to partner with as they were keen and enthusiastic and could turn around what we wanted immediately. The space now looks amazing! With clever uses of colour, storage, specialist lighting and floor finishes, the office seems large, bright and airy. Jodi and her team even designed a bespoke feature light, incorporating our logo which is a great finishing touch to the space. The client also procured our furniture through Stirling Grey and they managed this installation effortlessly. We would recommend them without a doub"

War Child

"Stirling Grey supported us throughout the whole process - from the embryonic stages, helping us visualise how we might look in the various different buildings we had found during our search - right through the move itself. They worked with us on floor plan, materials and design and were constantly on the look-out for areas where we could be more efficient whilst not sacrificing quality or vision. The fit-out was a tricky one, with structural work, many hours liaising with the landlord's own team, the suppliers and various control authorities and a ticking clock before we had to move out of our old offices. But Stirling Grey's team were on call at all times, working at the weekend and late into the evenings, always cheerful and positive and somehow managing to keep all of the balls in the air all of the time. A testament to their success is that they really become apart of the War Child's team during the time they worked with us - and many of our staff was sad to see them go. We have been in our office space for 6 months now, and the feedback has been nothing but positive - not only from the War Child team, but also from our many supporters who have come to visit. We are in a space and environment that will support our continued growth for many years to come, and a significant part of that was due to Stirling Grey. "

"we were really pleased with the works that Stirling Grey completed for us. It matched the brief we set them and met the deadline. All of the suppliers Giles used were friendly, efficient and went out of their way to cause as little disruption as possible for us. With Stirling Grey there were no hidden costs or surprises, which is very refreshing!"

Bluecube Technology Solutions

"We engaged with Giles and his team when we secured the building next to us with a view to them designing and managing the linking of the buildings as well as the internal fit-out. One of the added benefits that hadn't really registered with us at the beginning of this process was how we planned to use the space; Giles gave us a full analysis and as a result of some clever designing by Andrea we found that we didn't need all of the space and have been able to sub-let some of the space. In terms of the actual physical delivery, Stirling Grey were responsible for arranging the necessary builders,CAT5 cabling, air conditioning, the layout, space analysis, the design, glass partitioning and the supply of the desks, chairs and meeting tables as well as overall Project Management. We have been delighted with the work that Giles and his team have delivered. One of the key elements of the success, in my view, was the hands on approach that Giles took with the project. Whilst I felt his team were more than capable having Giles on site most days really gave me confidence that the project was being managed correctly and the small changes that we wanted to make as the project progressed were all easily accommodated and it was all within our budget as well. In summary Stirling Grey did a fantastic job for us and I would happily recommend them."

The Up Group

"We'd like to thank the Stirling Grey team for working with us on creating our fabulous new space in Millbank Tower. This was an important stage in the growth of our business and it was vital to us that we partnered with an organisation with similar values, ambition and drive to ensure that the design and quality truly represented what we stand for at The Up Group. From initial pitch to on-site delivery, Stirling Grey didn't let us down. Their design team headed up by Jodi presented by far the most creative ideas, and gave us confidence that she and the team knew exactly what we wanted. These designs were then bought to life during the fit-out phase and there really was no surprises as they delivered on their promises. Weekly site meetings, updates and progress reports kept us accurately informed at every stage. Stirling Grey was a great help, from upfront liaison with our landlords, agents and lawyers through to taking care of the finishing touches, like stocking up our champagne fridge! We would, and indeed have, wholeheartedly recommend Stirling Grey to others, and in fact we are already using them again on other smaller projects that we have."

"We are very happy with the work Stirling Grey carried out. Their guys were really great - they got the job done quickly and efficiently and they were particularly helpful and pleasant to have around. I was a bit worried about having the work carried out during office hours but Will and Frank were so careful and considerate we had absolutely no complaints at all! It was a relatively small project but we are very much a satisfied customer!"

SISU Capital

"Stirling Grey provided a first class service in every aspect of the design and build of our new office space. They showed a great understanding of our requirements and budget, which came in exactly in line with estimates, with no nasty surprises or hidden costs. In addition we had effectively unlimited personal access to Giles Darby, whose experience, expertise and positive pragmatism proved invaluable in managing the project. We are delighted with the quality and feel of the finished product and believe the decision to go with Stirling Grey above a number of "bigger name" competitors was wholly justified."

Autism West Midlands

"Autism West Midlands tendered the fit out project February 2012 and Stirling Grey was one of the companies that responded. Following an initial meeting with Giles Darby of Stirling Grey at our old premises at Highfield Road, Giles presented us with a potential design of the space which was well thought out and demonstrated an understanding of our requirements. Stirling Grey was one of the three shortlisted fit out companies invited to present to Autism West Midlands' relocation committee. Ahead of the meeting, Giles was thorough in obtaining the necessary information on our new office space, which involved getting in touch with our future landlord and suppliers, and speaking with the planning authority. We also inspected a project that Giles had managed for a previous client. Stirling Grey was offered the job as we felt that Giles would deliver our requirements on a limited budget. The fit out work was completed within four weeks as planned and Stirling Grey kept us informed of progress at all times in addition to the weekly site inspection. To ensure that the works were completed within the deadline, the team also worked during the Jubilee weekend. Their workmanship is of good quality and Stirling Grey delivered above our expectations and to budget. Giles was also responsible for securing bench desks and pedestals for our office as a donation from one of his corporate clients, potentially saving us almost £7,000. We would be happy to recommend Stirling Grey to any charities and corporations alike."

Rightmove Group Limited

"I want to thank the team at Stirling Grey for all their hard work in transforming our offices during November and December 2012. They all understood our requirements and business very well and came up with some wonderful, innovative ideas. This was on paper a very straight forward refurbishment to be completed in 4 weeks - however, I know we added a complication by making some significant changes to the brief half way through by asking to knock walls down that had just been erected. This did not faze their team and no matter what the issues and problems Giles stuck with it all the time and dealt with everything in a very calm and professional manner - and that has carried on to date while we complete the snagging and additional works. They always kept me well informed and any changes were documented straight away and they were always on the end of the phone if needed. The project was completed on time and on budget which was very important for us as we had to get the costs in 2012 and there was a limited budget. Working in an occupied office also brought its challenges so communication was critical with us - Stirling Grey always made sure everything was correctly signed so all staff knew exactly what was expected of them and disruption was kept to a minimum. The space now looks great and we are all happy in our fun, quirky new home - I would like to thank the team again for all their dedication and Giles for always being there - a true gentleman. They went above and beyond to make sure everything was completed to the highest standard which I know at times has been tedious. I would not hesitate to recommend Stirling Grey to another company and we would definitely use them again."

"We had never moved office before, and I really appreciated the expertise of the Stirling Grey team who were able to point out potential issues I hadn't thought of, and offer solutions. Once the project was underway I felt confident to leave them to it, and everything was delivered in time and on budget. I appreciated being able to hand everything over to the project manager to work out the details, and having time to focus on the rest of my work."

"I was recently given the task of my first 'mini' project in my office, in Milton Keynes. We had a new team starting in the office and required some new desks and additional furniture ordering and installing. Giles and his team at Stirling Grey have been fantastic. From my initial meeting with Giles to the installation of the desks, the process couldn't have run smoother. The communication and efficiency of the team was great and the installers on the day went out of their way to ensure the task was completed to the highest standard and to our satisfaction. Thank you! Happily recommend Giles and his team at Stirling Grey."

"Advent would like to express their thanks to all of the parties at Stirling Grey who assisted in making our office move to 1-6 Lombard Street such a success. Our thanks to all engineers who worked tirelessly to assist us in meeting our deadline. Our gratitude is shared specifically with Geoff Baker, Head of pre-contacts, Michelle Smith, Designer and, significantly, our Project Manager, Tom Skelton, who worked so hard to ensure that our expectations were met. We are incredibly happy with our new office space. The office incorporates white minimalism and classic dark wood design, with interjections of our bold 'Advent' orange. We have received endless compliments from clients and visitors and would thoroughly recommend Stirling Grey as a property services company with excellent standards."

HRG

"From the point of briefing Giles with our requirements we felt Stirling Grey grasped every aspect of our practical and aspirational expectations - this was illustrated in the initial designs presented back to us, along with budget costs. Throughout the process of developing the creative, the contract works and hardware, we felt confidence in their ability to deliver on time - this in part was due to their in depth knowledge, advice and flexibility. Stirling Grey were attentive to our needs and the many changes we made from the initial brief, and kept us fully informed at all times. It was refreshing that they clearly understood our desire to achieve value for money, and that the costings were provided in a 'shopping list' format so that we could choose those items we could manage ourselves. During the build we had constant communication, progress updates and weekly site meetings, and all designs were signed off before manufacture. All in all a pleasurable experience during a potentially stressful period!"

"We recently had a requirement to create additional meeting space in our City office and put this work out to tender. Throughout the process we found Stirling Grey to be responsive, friendly and approachable. Ultimately they were the most competitively priced and we selected them to deliver the work on our behalf. From initial designs and landlord negotiation the team were professional and helped us understand the process. Once the designs were signed off, our Stirling Grey project manager kept us in the loop at every stage and managed the fit-out seamlessly. We have subsequently ordered more furniture from them and hope to continue to work with them going forward. Thank you to Amanda and all the Stirling Grey team."

Holmes & Marchant

"Stirling Grey understood our brief, timescale and budget from the outset. Once appointed, Giles and his team worked diligently and accurately through a fit-out that had to correspond to both a demanding timeframe and the complex logistics of moving two MSQ group companies within the same office footprint - one of which was in constant occupation. Despite this it all went very smoothly and with little or no business interruption. Our new office looks wonderful and works very well. I would happily recommend them."

ESF Capital

"We enlisted Stirling Grey for the refurbishment of our office in Central London. They came up with several designs to meet our staff requirements, and had other suggestions of how to make the space work best for us. I was taken around showrooms to look at (and try out!) lots of furniture, and everything they had suggested ended up being the best choice for our needs. When I had an issue with regards to where to store our pens for the writeable walls, they came up with a bespoke design that fitted in with our office perfectly. Stirling Grey were professional from beginning to end of our office refurbishment. Nothing was too much trouble, and the finished product was an exquisitely managed project. The design was perfect, highly creative and something that I would never have been able to come up with on my own. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them. "

Greensleeves Care

"We appointed Stirling Grey following a competitive tender for the fit out of our new Head Office in London. Not only was the design our preferred design, we liked the culture of the organisation and felt the people we met had values aligned to our own. Throughout the design and build programme they were flexible and responsive to our requests. The whole team was helpful and supportive, and never pushy. We were particularly impressed with the personal way in which all requests for extra work were handled and the aftercare service we received was excellent. It was a pleasure to work with Stirling Grey. Their professionalism, expertise and support was tireless throughout the process. And their friendly, fun and highly knowledgeable team, led by Conrad, were always available with a ‘can do’ attitude that made it a pleasure to work with them. Fantastic company and brilliant team that I believe helped us achieve a great end result. Our staff are a lot happier staff too. "

"We were hugely impressed by the team at Stirling Grey who led a recent project to relocate our London headquarters and create a new working space for forty staff. As a human rights NGO it was important that our new space reflected our identity, created an inspirational environment, and provided excellent value for money for our donors. Stirling Grey surpassed our expectations and we are most grateful for the attention to detail, professionalism and creativity their team showed throughout the project. "

West End Corporate

"We undertook a significant office expansion in 2017, which covered a period of over 18 months from commencing our search through to moving in. Early in the process we reached out to Stirling Grey who graciously provided assistance with designing floor plans for multiple potential office spaces that for various reasons did not materialise. Once we secured our new office space we had to operate to a very tight timeframe and Stirling Grey were able to mobilise extremely quickly and get everything done on time, despite our new landlord’s best efforts to slow them down. Stirling Grey were very accommodating and were able to provide an end-to-end solution for our new office space which looks fantastic. Thank you to Matt & Will and everyone else who was involved at Stirling Grey."

"Our requirement was to undertake a substantial refurbishment of our Cambridge office to include new client meeting rooms, reception, a staff meeting room, decoration throughout. Given that the building remained in full occupation throughout the works, the SG team worked extremely hard to accommodate us and were very respectful of our need to carry on with our business and they worked around the 110 occupants extremely well. The hands on approach of some of their very experienced team members was hugely appreciated in guiding us through to a successful completion. We are absolutely delighted with the end result. Many thanks to all at Stirling Grey for such a great job. "
