“I was very impressed with the recent fire damper testing. The whole process has been dealt with very professionally and thoroughly throughout. Paul and Aiden have been on site for 3 days now and have been an excellent example of how professional, responsible contractors should behave. They were polite and friendly, always professional. Signed in and out every time, requested information and assistance when needed but were otherwise self-sufficient. It was a pleasure to work with them.”

Gary Nicholls, Bushey Academy

“The contractors carried out a stellar week of work. They carried out their duties faultlessly. I didn’t get one single complaint from our staff and the volume of testing that they are got through was outstanding. It was a breath of fresh air working with such a proactive and competent company. We have had such shocking experiences with respect to fire damper testing in the past and I was beginning to lose faith, rest assured RJ Urmson have restored it. Thank you again for providing such a brilliant service.”
