Reference Letter

Hardham & Hardham constructed my home in Bryanston during 2014 and 2015, and this letter serves as a recommendation of their services.

In any construction project, 3 particular matters stand out as being of the utmost importance:

  • Quality of workmanship
  • Delivery on time
  • Delivery on cost.

Hardham & Hardham, lead by Jonathan Hardham, delivered on all 3 of these criteria.

1. Quality of Workmaship

a. The best indication of the quality of the workmanship is that we had only 4 items (all of which were minor, and of which we were already aware) on our snaglist on the day we moved into our new home.

b. The attention to detail was excellent, and everything was done correctly the first time. Where this was not the case, Jonathan’s superb team and site manager (Justin Wille) picked up the issues and corrected them immediately.

2. Timing

a. Jonathan’s team managed the project according to a tight timeline of deliverables, and we were told what our deadlines were for making the relevant decisions in relation to our build. Jonathan’s team remained realistic and sensible throughout.

b. The clearest indication of the superb project management was that we moved into our home on the targeted occupation date.

3. Cost

a. The costing of the project was detailed and accurate, and, typically, although we ended up spending more than we had budgeted, that was due to us changing our minds on a number of different finishes and additional items over the course of the project.

Overall, if I were to build a home again, I wouldn’t consider employing any company other than Hardham & Hardham to do the job, and I recommend them unreservedly.

Letter of Recommendation – Hardham & Hardham Construction

We as DOWN to Earth Architects have worked with Hardham & Hardham Construction for over 15 years to date.

We have found them to be diligent in their approach to the various construction designs we have awarded them over the many years. Their work and business ethics speaks for itself, considering the number of projects they have completed for not only us, but many other Architects. Their list of repeat clients is tantamount to this fact. All the projects they have done for us have been completed on time and more importantly on budget.

I can highly recommend Jonathan and his team from Hardham & Hardham Construction to build your dream project.

Between August 2017 and October 2018 we contracted Hardham & Hardham Construction cc, which through Jonathan Hardham, was employed to build our house in Bluehills Equestrian Estate.

Before employing Hardham & Hardham Construction we put our build project out on tender to four different contractors. The Hardham & Hardham tender submission stood out from the other tenders in terms of overall quality of submission, depth of information and price. At the very early stages of engagement with Hardham & Hardham Construction, Jonathan Hardham provided invaluable guidance and expertise in terms of options for managing costs while maintaining the integrity of the architectural design.

Throughout the build Jonathan Hardham managed all the contractors in terms of quality of work and timely completion of work to ensure that our house was completed on time and on budget as per our contract.

Overall Jonathan is very professional and his wisdom and guidance throughout the build process meant that we had an extremely pleasurable build, with extremely high-quality finishes. I would therefore recommend Jonathan Hardham to anyone looking to build a house. I am more than willing to have prospective clients of Hardham & Hardham Construction contact me directly for a more detailed reference.
