Over the last 5 years Denval Co Ltd has been appointed to deliver the façade element of construction on our office buildings Number 1, Number 2, Number 3 and Number 4 Capital Quarter, Tyndall Street, Cardiff.
Denval have worked with us from concept design, programming and installation to deliver high quality and iconic buildings on our Capital Quarter development. Their ability to meet the demanding schedules imposed and ever-growing technological advancements in the industry has been a major factor in our working relationship.
Having successfully completed circa £8million of glazing and façade works on these projects, they have now been engaged on the pre-design and cost planning exercise for our next extensive project at John Street, Cardiff.
Their professional approach and total willingness to work with our design team and onsite personnel has been exceptional and a driving force in our continued working relationship.
Nick Campfield Hg Construction Mile End Road London
Just a note to say that the glazing unit replacements to the rear elevation of the building have been completed to the time schedule agreed with the client. The works proceeded like clockwork with minimum disruption.
Credit to Alex and his site team for completing a difficult task and making it look easy. I had no calls or e-mails from the client after the 1st day which is a record in itself! Thank you much appreciated.
Jamie O'shea Project manager for Leadbitter, Tremough Project
Denval are completing a project for us in Tremough Campus in Cornwall, due for hand over next month.
The building was designed by Burwell Deakin Architects and includes roof lights, automatic louvered windows, curtain walling and sliding doors.
Leadbitter invested time at the early stages of the project vetting Denval including visiting their premises in Wales as this region had no experience of using them before.
Denval provided a dedicated design manager to the project, have been performing well on site and I would be happy to use them again
Julian Anderson Project Manager Kier Western and Wales
We have engaged Denval at Waitrose Cowbridge to design, supply and fit curtain walling including fire exit doors as well as automatic sliding doors. I have found them to be proactive and helpful during the design stage which has enabled a timely turn around in manufacture. They have been quick to act on architect's change of detail without being overly contractual.
Their site team were second to none incorporating Kiers high standards of Health and Safety as well as their program and quality awareness. Over all Denval have been found to be a quality operator and I would welcome working with them again
Lance M Taylor MA (Cantab) Dip Arch RIBA of LT Architects
I would just like to place on record my appreciation of the excellent work Denval undertook on the above project. The contract provided challenges in terms of the complexity of the aluminium glazing and repairs to items previously supplied by others.
The quality of fabrication was of the highest standard; the installation team performed well and the ability of all Denval personnel to respond to alteration was impressive.
We have already recommended Denval for use on further contract and look forward to working with them again.
Sean O'Brien of Formation Group
We have been working with Denval for a number of years on various residential developments in the London Area, and we now consider them our ‘go to’ company for windows, doors and curtain walling.
One key benefit to our business is their openness to adding new and bespoke items to their product range to suit each project, with them having undertaken Juliet balconies, glass balustrades, continuous louvre systems as well as rainscreen cladding on our schemes in the past.
Their team are professional and helpful, and their ability to adapt site programmes to accommodate changes without being over contractual is a real bonus in enabling us to complete our projects on time.
We have recently awarded Denval a further £2million order for our Project in Wembley Hill, and we look forward to delivering another successful scheme in partnership with Denval.
JR Smart Capital Quarter Cardiff
J R Smart employed Denval in the provision of aluminium glazing, curtain walling, doors, solar shading and associated works. It is perhaps indicative of our overall satisfaction with Denval's performance that J R Smart is currently in detailed negotiations to award a further sub-contract to Denval.
Denval performed well at Capital Quarter, a commercial project where there were numerous challenges both in terms of the complexity of the project and the time and budgetary constraints. Denval demonstrated a pragmatic and co-operative approach which enabled us to work as a team without the unfortunate adversarial elements encountered in some contracts. Their factory reaction time to changes in works was exceptional and the ability of their on-site team to comply with the demands of our supervisors was most pleasing.
The people we worked with from top to bottom took pride in their performance and the ability of Denval's key personnel to make fast decisions enabled the project to move forward at the required pace.
Lennart Jonsson, Director of Senior Architectural and Glass systems
I must tell you, your guys have made you really proud. The roof and door at Pemberton Road are superb. The welding work and powder coating on the guttering is a work of art and all the aluminium work is fantastic. The fitting is also first class.
Thank you ever so much for helping me with this and also the short time you manage to complete this job.
J McCluskey Construction Director Ardmore
This was is the first opportunity we at Ardmore had to employ Denval in the provision of aluminium glazing, curtain walling, doors and associated works. It is perhaps indicative of our overall satisfaction with Denval's performance that Ardmore has chosen them to provide similar works on two further projects and are in detailed discussion for the grant of addition sub-contracts.
Denval performed well at New River House, a part residential/part commercial project where there were numerous challengers both in terms of the complexity of the project and the time and budgetary constraints. Denval demonstrated a pragmatic and cooperative approach which enabled us to work as a team without the adversarial elements encountered in some contracts. Their factory reaction time to changes in the works was exceptional and the ability of their on site team to comply with the demands of our supervisors was most pleasing.
The people we worked with from top to bottom took pride in their performance and the ability of Denvals' key personnel to make fast decisions enabled the project to move forward at the required pace.
Tony Morris and sons (developments) ltd – croft holiday park
We have recently employed Denval Ltd to complete a contract for us at Croft Holiday Park, Pembrokeshire.
Their contract was to supply and fit aluminium glazed curtain walling to a new swimming pool and reception extension. Also, to install aluminium windows, doors, bi-fold doors and internal screens to the main club house.
We are very pleased with the quality of their products and workmanship and will certainly be using Denval again on other projects. They are an approachable and professional company with excellent employees.
Serj Azarian Construction Director of Valco
I would like to take this opportunity to express my opinion on the performance of Denval firstly as a company and secondly their quality of workmanship.
On a particularly difficult build project for Valco regarding design and programme at E.02 Cardiff, Denval have been outstanding from the initial value engineering stage as we had difficulties in meeting the budget for the external envelope. The biggest advantage for Valco has been the fact that Denval found cost effective solutions and have designed, installed and coordinated most of the building envelope including Curtain Walling, Rain Screen and Solar Shading.
As any contractor can appreciate this has been beneficial from a site management point of view and avoidance of any overlap delay or cost which may have occurred if separate contractors were to be used for each trade.
The site teams for installation are very experienced crews, which have demonstrated outstanding finishes to all their works which has been reflected in the client’s snag list.
In general, I would have no hesitation in recommending Denval to any contractor or developer to carry out the entire envelope works on a project.
