What our Clients & Partners say…

“I am very pleased that I entrusted this firm with the renovation of my old apartment because I just couldn’t leave the place in such a bad condition. This company has undertaken a whole renovation. It has fully been taken care of the whole job by the team. I was fully satisfied with their job, I think it worth every penny for it.”


“I have never before been a position where I have felt that the excellent scores I have given above were even pertinent, let alone so well deserved. The personal and immediate attention of the management team, when it was requested/required was excellent and a key to the end result. Performance time and cost parameters were kept – except where they were outwith the company’s control. We have had experiences of other main contractors and PB behaved and performed in a manner, head and shoulders above them.”
