Knauf Drywall
An article about CLM.
Bovis LendLease
I have had the pleasure of working with CLM across 4 BSF projects in the East Lancashire Area. The BSF projects are the largest single reinvestment ever made in the Burnley and Pendle Education system.

As a new Sub-contractor to BLL the challenge for CLM was whether they would be able to meet the high demands on procedures and protocol while maintaining the required output on site. This was not a problem for CLM.

CLM passed an extensive PQQ and underwent a 2 day on site audit. CLM gained the highest level accreditation which BBL developed in partnership with Achilles information Ltd. The programme is designed to assess the construction industry supply chain in safety, environmental, sustainability, quality, occupational health and financial areas.

On every one of the 4 BSF projects that CLM worked upon, their performance was excellent. Their work has been carried out efficiently, in line with our construction programme. Resources on site have never been an issue and the quality of their work is to a very high standard. The standard of CLM's housekeeping on site was second to none. They were flexible, hard working, willing and available to discuss issues. These traits helped deliver all the projects successfully from a BLL and CLM point of view.

BLL's education clients appreciate our ability to fast-track projects, helping deliver new faclities quickly and maximising the school holiday and vacation periods whilst students are absent. CLM's proactive and flexible approach benefited BLL and our clients in turn.

I would not hesitate to recommend CLM to any other main contractor and will no doubt have the pleasure of working together with CLM in the future.

I confirm that I have dealt with John Houston MD and his company CLM whilst carrying out the dry lining works on Unity College and City Learning Centre Burnley, a D&B circa 30 million pound BSF protect.

During which time they have provided my business with excellent workmanship, quality, record keeping and housekeeping, the latter being more than satisfactory.

Their work element was managed by competent knowledgeable managers safely, who have been instrumental in making this work element successful, as well as a major factor in our overall project success, helping it to become one of our best presented projects.

I can confidently recommend CLM Ltd as a solid and reliable business, who are experts in their field.."

"My first contact with CLM was when looking to place an order for the prestigious awarding winning VM1 project at Shipley. West Yorkshire. Though extremely skeptical at first I agreed to review a project they were currently undertaking in Leeds for Ocon. CLM, a relatively fledgling contractor were up against proven drylining contractors who we had relationships with over many years, to secure the VM 1 contract.

The Ocon project was a similar superstructure construction to that at VM1 and the details and proactive approach they had shown to the client and architect on this project without commercial gain to themselves gave me an excellent feeling about this sub-contractor.

The feedback from the site team for the main contractor on this major project again reiterated our earlier thoughts.

After meeting with John Houston the Managing Director, it was clear a good relationship and rapport could easily be built and we awarded the contract to CLM.

Through the VM 1 project I never considered I had made a mistake by going with this fledgling company. They were flexible, hard working, willing and available to discuss issues. These traits are extremely rare with sub contractors of this day and age. Though the project was difficult CLM came through and were rewarded by negotiating the 2nd phase with ourselves which is currently half way through and ahead of programme.

If I were to be asked, “would I recommend CLM” or “would I use them again”, without hesitation, I would respond positively. CLM are now part of the team.

Here’s to many more projects working together and building on the excellent foundations we have set between the two companies."

Eric Wright Construction Ltd
CLM carried out their first contract for Eric Wright Construction on a new build 4000 sq mtr health centre in Accrington, Lancashire. We found them to be professional and courteous with the quality of workmanship being of a high standard. Their workforce observed and complied with site Health & Safety rules and their general house keeping was exceptional.

As a result of their performance on this contract, CLM have been added to our subcontract data base and continue to price and carry out work for Eric Wright Construction.

"CLM’s performance has been excellent. Their work has been carried out efficiently, in line with our construction programme. Resources on site have never been an issue and the quality of their work is to a very high standard. The standard of their housekeeping on site is what has set them apart from other drylining contractors we have been involved with. Overall, they have performed extremely well and have produced a high quality finish. They are not confrontational or aggressive in their approach and will work with the site team to achieve a successful completion. We would have no hesitation in employing them again on future contracts and they have been placed on our approved sub-contractor database."
