SCS were contracted to carry out the drilling, cutting and fire stopping on the Newbury Parkway project. This involved a variety of diamond drilling and saw cutting across the project. They have also completed all of the fire stopping and air sealing works to the project. They carried this out over a period of 2 years. Their workforce was always well trained and briefed by their dedicated on site supervision.
They have managed to maintain a high degree of professionalism and good reaction time to important last minute tasks. They have also been contracted to carry out the drilling at the Reading Station Redevelopment Project. They have been on site for about 3 months and are performing well. They are conversant with the NR requirements.
I have now used SCS on many projects in the past and will continue to work with
them in the future.

SCS have been contracted to supply drilling and cutting services to the M1 Junction 10 to 13 Joint Venture (Carillion - Costain). They have undertaken a variety of works from wire and track saw cutting, to coring, drilling and bursting operations works to providing road saws for deep cutting operations. The work force are professional on site and their work is always to a very high standard. Productivity is very good and above the levels I have experienced with other sub contractors in the region.
They are very flexible and have reacted well to the site specific safety requirements, maintaining the very high standard expected from all who work on the scheme. Their office team are well organised and provide a high standard of Health and Safety documents as well as excellent organisation to solve unexpected problems and complete short notice works.
I would recommend them to any other client or major contractor for future works.

PP Construction Ltd have employed SCS to carry out cutting and drilling works for many years. The primary reason for the repeated business with SCS is the dediction the company places on the quality of their workmanship and the processes they have in place to ensure the works are completed as required. Concrete drilling and cutting is considered to be a high risk activity within our business with respect to quality as any errors made can result in large costs to rectify and the peace of mind provided when using SCS far out ways any commercial element when selecting the right sub-contractor for the job. Our experience in draling with SCS has highlighted the high level of competence across all operatives we have worked with and we have never had cause to complain of raise any nonconformity with their work.

I confirm that Specialist Cutting Services have been employed both directly working for Wates Construction Ltd and via our subcontractors R Collard Demolition Ltd and PP Construction Ltd during the delivery of our project at 234 Bath Road Slough. Works have been carried out between September 2015 to the present day.
Throughout this period Specialist Cutting Services have provided a highly professional service across a broad range of activities including Brokk Demolition, diamond drilling and diamond sawing. In all these activities Specialist Cutting Services have worked to high standards of safety, health, environmental and quality management. Their off site services of Safety Inspections and delivery of toolbox talks fits well with the Wates safety philosophy and their operatives have shown willing to get involved with site safety initiatives.
From a personal perspective i have worked with Specialist Cutting Services throughout my carreer with Wates and have found them to be a proactive contractor throughout this time.
