  • 31.03.17 - Quantum Small Works Closing

    After running the department for 6 years Steve has decided to establish his own company with some of his current team.

    As some members of Quantum have been working with Steve and his team in excess of 25 years it sad to see them leave however it is also an exciting prospect for Steve and the team for which we wish them the best of luck.

    As Steve was the core of Small Works we have taken the decision to close that section of the business and focus on the main business which continues to grow in strength.

    We continue to offer our clients the range of support that we have always prided ourselves upon however focus  will be on a full management approach to contracts in lieu of direct labour.

    I hope that you will take the opportunity to wish the best of luck to Steve and his team in their new endeavour.

  • 19.06.11 - Arthur’s Attempt

    As some of you may be aware, on Sunday 19th June one of our Directors, Damian Gallagher, and one of our Surveyors, Matthew Gallagher, will be cycling from London to Brighton as part of the British Heart Foundation’s sponsored bike ride.

    The ride is around 54 miles, through the traffic filled streets of London and the rolling hills of Sussex. Given that it is an arduous trip for the untrained they are hoping for sponsorship to give them no excuse to waiver from the task.

    British Heart Foundation is a fantastic charity which helps to find new ways to fight heart disease and provides invaluable support to sufferers and their families.

    Please donate anything that you can afford as raising plenty of money for the charity will make the ride that bit easier! Don’t forget that gift aid helps add that little bit more tothe cause so don’t forget to fill in the details!

    If you wish, make a donation by using the following link: http://www.justgiving.com/Arthurs-Attempt
