On behalf of my Chairman and Members of the Deeside Chapter, I would like to thank your company for the excellent CPD Presentation on Access All Areas that was given by your Stan Winfield.
It was a very educational presentation and invigorating to listen to someone who is clearly passionate about taking the standards of the construction industry forward.
Stan soon demonstrated he is well aware of the value and technical qualities of your products and the problems associated with poor detailing and workmanship. He also had a pleasant way of passing on the merits to other people, so please pass on our sincere thanks for a very interesting and technical lecture.
Peter J Smyth MICW&CI, Hon. Secretary, The Institute of Clerks of Works & Construction Inspectorate of GB Inc (Deeside Chapter)
My colleagues and I found the outline of Bilco's Roof Access Units and Smoke Extraction very useful. From a personal perspective, the items on firefighting, such as how fire response teams wedge doors open in order to assist smoke in rising out of vents, was something I had not considered previously. In addition, the images of Roof Access Units on pitched roofs and mounted with vegetation were fascinating.
Tom Turner, Sweett (UK) Ltd
All in all, excellent service from start to finish. I would have no hesitation in recommending Bilco to anyone looking for this type of fitting.
We have used Bilco on previous jobs and we know that we will get a product that suits our needs whether it is a standard product or a specially made one.
David Russell, Senior Associate, S&P Architects
The Bilco Smoke Ventilators and Roof Hatches meet the key requirement of reliability in operation and offer long-life with easy maintenance and testing. They have also been swift and easy to install.

We are always happy to recommend Howe Green access covers, especially in situations where the client requires a finish that is visually appealing and of superior quality. Buildings with a high level of pedestrian traffic, such as museums, hospitals and airports, require an access solution that can deliver on aesthetics, security and quality. After 18 years of working together, we are confident that Howe Green's covers fulfil those requirements.
Otto von Platen, Managing Director, Elkington
We have used Howe Green for many years and have always found them to be a reputable and efficient company who deliver a good product.
Annabel MacDonald-Haig, Du Boulay Contracts
We've worked with Howe Green for over 20 years. That says a lot about the company and the excellent standard of manufacture, service and support we get from them. The Emirates Air Line is a very prestigious project for us. It's a job with tight time and budget pressures though, as every project is these days. Having Howe Green's full support and knowing that they will pull out all the stops should we need them to, gives us greater flexibility and peace of mind.
Simon Petrou, Commercial Director, TRI
St Bernadette's offers first-class facilities for education in a building designed for a long and efficient life. Howe Green access covers are of excellent quality and their technical support was second to none.
Falkirk Council Architect
The delivery times we were being quoted by other suppliers were completely unworkable. Thankfully Howe Green was able to supply their quality drainage solution in half the time and without us having to pay a premium. Without this quick turnaround, we wouldn't have been able to complete the pool area in time and there would have been much wider repercussions.
Mike Fallon, Kier Northern
We've used Howe Green's access covers many times before. They are very good quality and made to order. With a 16-week window to deliver The Tramshed, we needed a supplier that could give us exactly what we needed, when we needed it and so their quick turnaround was a definite bonus.
John Chilvers, Project Manager, Tekne Shopfitting Ltd
I have just received the order and look forward to opening it tonight. It all looks very well made and packaged. Ordering was very friendly and easy – I thought it would be tricky for a non-commercial to order just one unit but it was a most pleasant and straightforward experience, well done! Very satisfied on all counts. Thumbs up to Joe in Sales.
Many thanks for my order which arrived as promised last Friday.
We are very pleased with it and would like to thank you and your colleagues for the excellent service from your company with my order turned around within the week. I spoke to four different people over a period of about two weeks and all of you were extremely friendly and efficient. It is reassuring to receive such brilliant service.
We used over 60 of Howe Green's 7500 Series Floor Access Covers for a major project involving the expansion of King's Cross Underground Station. In this highly challenging and demanding environment, we needed to be confident that the Floor Access Covers installed could handle vast amounts of footfall and prevent the passage of fire through service channels. Howe Green's products are the best – the quality of the 7500 Series combined with Howe Green's technical expertise and willingness to help made what could have been a stressful aspect to the project plain sailing!
Director, DMC Contracts
We recommended Howe Green specifically for their superior product, bespoke manufacturing capabilities and excellent on-site support. We completed Phase One of the Thameslink Platforms Project 5 weeks ahead of schedule – we couldn't have done that without their commitment and willingness to pull out all the stops when we needed it.
Director, DMC Contracts
We have never had any issues with Howe Green in all the years we've worked together. They make a great quality product, give a reliable service and do what they promise to do. That still goes a long way in business today and we knew we could recommend them for the Newcastle Central Project with complete confidence.
Mark Forster, Commercial Director, P. Plunkett
Howe Green's covers are excellent quality which makes a big difference on-site. It's easy to set tiles into the cover inlay which helps save time and they integrate with the Terrazzo flooring very well. A minimal show edge allows us to achieve the best possible aesthetic on the service and provide a durable solution for accessing services underneath the floor.
