Some personal recommendations

 

 

 

We are grateful

During the preliminary stages of our bungalow construction project we met several potential Project Managers. Phil Rigotti was the one who  immediately impressed us with his honesty and professionalism, and with whom we felt we could develop a good working relationship. Our  impressions were well - founded. Phil dealt quickly and efficiently with all the issues, which the project threw at us; he also communicated  well - keeping us well-informed of progress and taking the trouble to explain in layman's terms some of the more technical aspects of what was  happening. We were also impressed by his adaptability - allowing us to do as much, or as little, on the project as we felt we wanted to.

Choosing a Project Manager can be a bit of a lottery - we consider ourselves lucky to have found Phil, who turned out to be trustworthy and
capable, and by the end of the project a firm friend"

When we were designing our new house, our architect gave us an overly optimistic idea of the build costs. He obtained a number of quotations from various conventional builders, but we could not afford to proceed unless we could meet our budget. (some of which specified nothing at all!) So we decided to investigate the timber frame route and met Phil.

When Phil came to meet us and said - “yes I can do that”, we were not entirely convinced. Phil provided enough information and after some careful consideration on our part we signed up. We were worried that he might take the money and run, but nothing could have been further from the truth. Phil got quotes for every aspect of the build, they were all available to look at and the workmen all charged exactly what had been quoted. Only one tradesman submitted a higher bill. I spoke to Phil and the tradesman amended the bill accordingly.

Trusting someone with the responsibility of building our new home, with all the attendant anxieties, not to mention expenses, involved in such a project, was an unnerving prospect.  We took a leap of faith when we put our trust in Phil but it proved to have been the right decision.  Phil is not only trustworthy – he really cared about getting the best results possible for us, from offering advice to obtaining competitive quotes, to hiring and overseeing labour, to simply being there when we needed him.

 

Phil is reliable and more importantly, extremely easy to get on with. We are delighted with the house he helped us build and would recommend him to anyone considering going down this route.

I know that Phil doesn’t understand why people don’t believe he can deliver, we were worried too, but project management is his job and he is very good at it.

Phil Rigotti project managed an exciting and large extension project for
us. He led from the start to completion.

Appointing someone such as Phil is important for a project to succeed and it has to start with trust. Phil was able to quickly grasp what it was we were thinking and put us in contact with an architect, who was able to draw up the plans we required to secure a successful planning permission. From there, Phil dealt with all the structural issues and with his personal and extensive knowledge of the trade, planned, sourced and secured delivery of elements of the project with reliable contractors. Phil always aimed for value for money without compromising too much quality and time; which is always a tricky thing to balance! He kept us regularly informed on both time and cost.

With an extension project you will always come across unexpected
situations and Phil had the ability to adapt to these situations extremely
well. Whilst there were fraught moments (and there always will be!), we are
extremely pleased with the end product and contribution Phil has made. We
would gladly recommend Phil.

I have worked with Phil Rigotti on two projects now, a block of 12 Flats and a block of 8 flats and I hope we will start more soon. Because Phil estimates the cost of each job accurately, his budget price is very reliable and the jobs were finished on budget. I enjoy Phil's honesty, integrity and knowledge, but what is most impressive is his enthusiasm for the whole building process and his willingness to use new materials and methods.
