John Gould MCIPS from Construction Skills and Don Glover from Hanover Housing Association have been my clients for some years and have kindly supplied the Testimonials below. Further Testimonials are available on request.
“ConstructionSkills have been associated with Belt and Braces for many years who have provided an external auditing service in respect of our outsourced catering and cleaning contract.
The contract covers Colleges located throughout the UK and varies in the services required from our Contractor at each site, from a full residential catering and cleaning service, including Licensed Bars and Hospitality to a “packed lunch” provision at our temporary training sites.
The work Colin does for us is invaluable, in not only ensuring our Contractor provides us the service they have “signed” up to, but also manages our expectation’s as a Client in that we do not place unreasonable demands on that provision.
This fair approach is respected by both parties and ensures we work with our Contractor as a true partnership. In addition Colin provides me with regular updates on changes in the catering industry which I find both informative and beneficial in looking at new equipment or processes. “

Estate and Facilities Manager
Hanover Housing Association
At Hanover Housing Association we expect a good quality, high standard of service from our catering service providers. We have used Belt and Braces for some years and find the service to be an extremely valuable addition to our quality control systems. Belt and Braces visit a number of our estates throughout the country providing an honest and balanced report on the standard of service we and our residents are receiving. The reports are supported by photographs of both good and bad practices which we find invaluable when discussing the reports with the incumbent caterer as they can not be disputed.
Using Belt and Braces removes the possibility of upsetting any good will between both parties as the reports are independent and show no bias. Add to this our ability to provide extra evidence of due diligence if required our belief is the service we receive from Belt and Braces offers excellent value for money.
