  • The restaurant operators, Compass Group, closed the restaurant operation for a maximum of 2 weeks, within which time our contracted brief was to strip out and totally refurbish the servery area ready for handover on the morning of re-commencement of trading.
  • Vear Group handed over the project on time and in a clean and operationally ready condition including the issue of an O&M manual and Building Control approval.
  • The lead in time for joinery and catering equipment involved close liaison with the architects in respect of design development.

Vear Group brought a very professional and enthusiastic ethos to the project. Their sub-contractors were excellent and all their staff were very easy to deal with
