Ellis and Co Testimonials
Wells Cathedral

I am writing on behalf of the clerk of Wells Cathedral to thank you whole heartedly for the splended work you and your team did on the North Nave Aisle Roof. Our Clerk of Works thought very highly George Lansdown the Site Manager who did a very good job.

It is excellent to have this phase of the Muniment Room (of Chichester Cathedral) completed and well within budget. Ellis and Co were in my view an excellent firm for the work; the working site foreman brought intelligence, skill and good cooperation to the job.

I met with the Site Manager on Wednesday and can confirm that the Health and Safety on site and site paperwork is all in good order ... I wish all contractors would take this aspect of their work as seriously as Ellis & Co

I wanted to write and thank you and your team for the professional job which you all did for us. Everyone at Christ Church is thrilled with the transformation of the West End and for those of us closer to the detail, we were most impressed with the way that you were able to solve our door problem and find ways for us to make savings to offset our extra work. We will certainly be in touch with Ellis and Co again when we move on to future projects.

A triumph of the restoration is the way the elevations have been repaired so as to retain a soft patina. Only the most damaged bricks have been replaced and the lime pointing toned to match. Stone dressings have been repaired in Chilmark and Portland stone; the window architraves were a particularly painstaking task. .... This is one of the most successful country-house restorations in recent years.

(on winning the NFB Heritage Award). This project took time and meticulous planning. Ellis and Co restored as much of the original fabric of the building as possible. The majority of the work was undertaken in-house by Ellis and Co staff specialising in heritage leadwork, joinery, brickwork and plastering. It is great to see one of our members produce such high standards in restoring our heritage and dedication of all concerned leaving a finished job that will last for many years to come.
