Following working with Hardy’s electrical for the first time recently on a project for Fareham borough council, I can say that the company acted professionally throughout the project and delivered a quality end product whilst maintaining programme at all times…We have already engaged with Hardy’s since completing the above project and are looking at future works, I would happily recommend Hardy’s given our first impressions, project experience and look forward to working with them again.

Darren Quainton

Contracts Manager , Mountjoy

The electrical works package was completed on time and within budget but more importantly the quality of workmanship and the manner in which the contract was administered was excellent. In particular, we were most happy with Darren’s approach to remedials and client requests. I am more than happy to recommend Darren and his team.

I was impressed with how quickly you managed to grasp the specification and scope of the £1.8 million pound scheme. Not only understanding our client’s requirements but having the confidence to offer solutions not only improving the end product but offing savings along the way. I would not hesitate to use Hardy’s for not only my electrical obligations but also any mechanical works. Thanks Darren its been an absolute pleasure.
