National Trust, Resident

Just wanted to send a quick email to say thanks to your electrician that came out to help. He was a really nice chap, very professional and nothing was too much trouble. He put right some very old faulty electricals that were there and made everything safe, please pass on our thanks. 

National Trust, Lanhydrock Café

I wanted to write to say a huge thank you to you all. The decking is wonderful and all the engineers were extremely professional, friendly and good humoured. To get all the work done and sort out the issues we had, as quickly as they did and in the ever changeable weather was hugely appreciated by us, and meant the café could open early which was great.

Bathroom refurb, Falmouth

I’d like to write and thank Evolution for our fantastic bathroom and the excellent experience we had with them. They were able to come and do the work very quickly and had it finished by the time we needed. The builders were top quality and we are really pleased with our bathroom which exceeded our expectations. They were delightful to have in the house and cleared up perfectly every day. We would certainly have them back for any future work.

I am most grateful to the EVOLUTION team for attending to my roof so promptly and efficiently. The men who did the work were courteous and helpful – as well as knowing what they were doing of course.

I liked the way I was kept informed about the process from start to finish; somebody made sure I was always aware when things were going to be done. I felt I had a clear and easy line of communication.

The scaffolding was removed this morning, quickly and quietly, again with courtesy and good humour.

Many thanks

“I would just like to say a huge thank you to ‘Evolution’ for the excellent work you undertook in rectifying the very significant structural problems in my 20 month old house. After purchasing a new home in Cornwall and confirming that such faults existed, I was at the end of my tether in resolving these issues. I am fully aware that as a Chartered Building company, taking on private matters (albeit significant ones) is somewhat unusual because of the normal commercial arena you work in. However, I was extremely pleased when you agreed to carry out my house work as your level of professionalism and competence from both corporately and on the ground with your staff was outstanding. I cannot thank you enough, mainly because you have now made my house into the home it should be”.

Kindest regards, Rod and Sue Nicholls

Partial roof, soffit and gutter replacement required, and carried out swiftly at a reasonable price.  No mess, owners exceptionally pleased at the speed of the finished work and cost.

Evolution has also been used for emergency callouts and have responded quickly to all owners satisfaction at a reasonable cost.

In my opinion Evolution gave a prompt, efficient and reliable service and would recommend them capable of carrying out any small works to a satisfactory conclusion.

My background was oil broking not building and as the main contractor I needed good sub-contractors around me to build the first sustainable code six high-end luxury holiday destination in the United Kingdom.

Evolution came in late to our project when we were experiencing problems with sourcing good local tradesmen. This was a challenge for an experienced builder let alone a complete novice like myself!

Evolution quoted competitively for the insulation, dry-lining, sealing and airtightness, internal skimming and laying of the polished oak flooring. This was a tough job for a code six project.

Evolution helped us meet our very difficult targets especially with the airtightness and the insulation. They came on site and delivered exactly what they said they would. As a company they embraced our commitment to Considerate Contractors and helped us achieve a National Bronze Award with this scheme scoring in the top 5 pct in the country.

In short Evolution became part of our team even to the point when they thought we were perhaps steering off course told us probably a few things we did not want to hear, but they were there with solutions to the problems and to help put it right.

One big plus for me as the main contractor even after we had finished, shaken hands and paid in full without hesitation they came back to put some minor issues right. The strength of your relationship is not always measured when it’s going well, but measured when problems arise and how those problems are dealt with. Evolution always offered constructive advice and solutions and were pro-active in delivering a professional job.

I would not hesitate to recommend Evolution and if you’re considering engaging with them please do not hesitate to contact me and I will happily show you their first class work at The Emerald. We are very proud of our contemporary zero carbon luxury houses and very pleased Evolution were with us for that journey.

Our shared high level chimney required re-rendering.  On removing blown render it was discovered that the brickwork and flues were disintegrating.  This meant that we required major additional work to be carried.

A Party Wall Agreement was required and through Evolution this was obtained together with a structural engineer.  Evolution were able to complete the works which required sensitivity, diplomacy, man-management with severe scrutiny from the adjoining property owners.  This was fully completed at a reasonable cost and we highly recommend Evolution’s workmanship.
