Praise from our stakeholders

'Howard Civil Engineering's customer service and swiftness to respond to any questions and queries was excellent. The quality of work delivered was also excellent, especially considering the programme was very tight in terms of deadlines. Howard Civil Engineering were very easy and professional to work with. The scope by Rotherham Council was quite demanding in relation to the bollards and other smaller items, however Howards responded in an excellent manner and aimed to complete all work to a high standard. It was a pleasure to work with you and your team!'
