We embarked on a 12 month total refurbishment of our house in Putney – this included major structural work and the contract was put out to tender to 5 firms. Whilst PVAD were not the cheapest their quote was the most detailed and their level of enquiry and work and effort around the tender gave us confidence that their quote would be near to the reality. The good news is it was – the project took marginally longer but from a price perspective was where we all thought it would be from the outset. We had an excellent onsite manager , Russlyn, who co-ordinated everything extremely efficiently. There were no nasty surprises and the work ethic from all the PVAD guys was excellent. They had a very large team working on our property and whenever we turned up unexpected they were always working hard. The standard of finishing was extremely good and the attention to detail very high. Post completion there have been a few niggles and PVAD have had no hesitation to send people round at short notice to get things fixed. I have huge confidence in these guys and know that our architect and project manager feel the same. You hear many horror stories out there but I would have no hesitation in recommending these guys.
I first met Vitas in 2012 when PVAD were tendering for a project of mine in South West London. Vitas was successfully appointed as main contractor for the extension and complete refurbishment of a private dwelling house. The project was a success, coming in on budget and on time, and my clients were very pleased with the performance of the team as a whole. I have subsequently recommended Vitas and PVAD on numerous occasions and had the pleasure of working with them several times since. I consider Vitas to be thorough, professional and extremely reliable as well as a pleasure to work with. His team run very tidy and efficient sites and can be relied upon to communicate well, both with myself as Architect and with the client, and they will problem solve on site if required as work progresses. Vitas and his team have an exceptionally eye for detail and have contributed immeasurably to each of the jobs they have been involved in. They have brought great value to the projects and made my job as Architect considerably easier.
We engaged PVA Developments to undertake a complete renovation of our new house. Vitas and his team were extremely professional from the first meeting until the last bit of snagging work. The project was not a straightfoward one as the house was old and had not been well maintained but throughout the process the PVA team were very helpful, proactive and pragmatic in their approach. They are, to boot, an extremely nice bunch of guys who take an obvious pride in their work - we cannot recommend them highly enough.
This in an unsolicited testimonial on behalf of PVA Developments for the conversion work carried out on my house in Wimbledon. The extension to my kitchen and rear terrace involving the full range of building trades was carried out (whilst owner occupied) with extreme diligence, was delivered on time and within budget. I have no hesitation in recommending PVA Developments for the execution and Management of Architectural Building Work.
We remained living in our house for 4 months whilst PVAD completed our kitchen extension and new bathroom and were extremely impressed by how conscientious all the workmen were given the sensitive situation of having 3 children in the house (including a 9 month old) - not an easy scenario for them to work in but they were brilliant. Their workmanship, attitude and ability to complete the project within time exceeded our expectations and we would not hesitant to recommend them.
We used PVA in May 2012 to do the full renovation of our house in Clapham, including a kitchen extension and loft conversion. We have been very happy with PVA's work and would recommend them (and have done so already) to anybody. This was a project quite large in scope (one ton of steel was added to our house...) and we had wanted very precise and high-end specifications. PVA delivered the project on time and on budget. Building a house is always stressful, but it was always easy to deal with Vitas, who is very good at defusing tense situations and finding practical solutions. We thought that Vitas added value to the architect's drawing. In some instances, his team re-did part of the job when we did not like the end result, and at no extra cost. We thought that the lead man Tadas was also very good at leading his team (with an iron fist). Vitas has come on site a few times to help us deal with snagging issues post project completion. We hope that Vitas succeeds in his endeavours and PVA flourishes, they deserve so.
We found PVA staff friendly, accommodating and easy to deal with. Vitas Poshkus gave us many helpful suggestions and much useful advice. PVA were reliable and delivered high quality work to the timetable they had promised. All the individual workmen were always polite and courteous. PVA always addressed promptly any concerns or issues that did arise. Their after-care was excellent. Their charging structure and billing was very carefully laid out and was readily comprehensible with no surprise items. We would highly recommend Vitas and PVA and indeed have already done so to two friends who wanted building work done.
I have no hesitation in recommending PVA Developments. From top to bottom the team adopts a "can do", approachable and friendly attitude. They provided sound advice and guidance on the huge range of decisions we had to make and perhaps most importantly delivered on programme and budget.
PVA did a great job with our recent kitchen extension, loft conversion and general refurb. The job was completed to the high spec that we had hoped for and it was completed on time and within budget. It was a pleasure working with Vitas and his team. They came up with alternative ideas to the architectural drawings once the works began, which made practical sense. They were as clean and tidy as a building site can be and cleaned up every night. Any issues where quickly dealt with by the site manager and we had minimal complaints from the neighbours. If we were to do another renovation project, would definitely use PVA again.
In 2012 we contracted PVA Developments to build an extension to our four bedroom house, as well as redevelop and renovate the entire interior downstairs layout and the family bathroom upstairs. We were pleased that the project kept to schedule and budget, and were impressed by the positive and professional attitude Vitas and his team displayed. As this was the first project of this scale I've been involved with, I was surprised by how comfortable I felt in asking basic questions and felt in control of the entire project. Nothing was ever too much trouble for Vitas and overall the house was done to a very high standard, from groundwork, electrics, plumbing through to painting and wallpaper. Our family is thrilled with the result and are very much enjoying living in our new home. Thank you PVA!
I used PVA Developments to completely renovate a run down house and build a 30sqm kitchen extension. Vitas and his team were very efficient and completed the entire build without any unexpected costs or hiccups. Despite delays caused our end (as unexpected appeals were needed to gain planning permission) Vitas was very patient and accommodating. If you need the best possible building team who are technically expert, honest, and reliable and prompt, you could not do better than call PVA. I strongly commend them.
It isn't very often you can say a project of this nature is anything other than stressful and traumatic. However on this occasion PVA have made the whole experience rather enjoyable. Vitas and his team have been quick to respond to my questions, given educated and helpful advice, worked well with the architects and the lady in charge. The guys on site were welcoming, resourceful and incredibly hard working. Vitas is not only trustworthy but a very nice guy to boot. The results as you can see from the stunning picture are amazing. A truly wonderful family home in the heart of Wandsworth. Thank you PVA.
Vitas and the team were excellent, highly professional and delivered on time. We were very impressed that they actively engaged during the development process by making practical recommendations which improved the overall design and made the process run smoothly. We selected PVA because of their attention to detail and quality of their finish… fortunately they didn’t disappoint!
