An ethos of client-focus and supply chain collaboration


"High quality staff and a proactive approach to getting things done. Speedclad are big enough to deliver quality with high levels of management but also small enough to remain agile and care about relationships”

Josh Donnelly, Development Manager, Sewell Construction

"Speedclad had a truly impressive year, showing a demonstrable commitment to its staff and strong evidence that it is trusted by numerous clients to complete outstanding projects through a partnership approach. The judges agreed that they would have confidence bringing Speedclad onto one of their own projects.”

"On Chamberlain Hall Student Residence, Speedclad partnered with Balfour Beatty during the tender stage developing substantial cost savings to the scheme whilst maintaining the highest quality envelope solution and being a major contributor to Balfour Beatty being awarded the scheme. The partnering approach with Speedclad carried on into the construction phase allowing many of the project's challenges to be resolved with good outcomes for all stakeholders and also upholding the highest levels of quality delivery.”

Colin Harper, Project Director, Balfour Beatty Construction

"Speedclad has carried out curtain walling and glazing contracts on a number of Winvic projects and they consistently deliver a top quality service and finished product. Their entire team is very approachable and has a wealth of technical knowledge and experience and they are always willing to go that 'extra mile' to ensure we as a client get the result we hope for.”

Tim Reeve, Technical Director, Winvic Construction

"Speedclad were employed at number 10 Wellington Place, Leeds, to supply and install a natural stone composite rainscreen cladding; on the strength of their performance on this project they were the preferred contractor on number 6 Wellington Place, and became a supply chain partner. Number 6 Wellington Place is a prestigious city centre development and we required a subcontractor that could deliver this £1million rainscreen cladding package on time and to the high standards required by such a flagship project. Speedclad have been highly proactive in the design development and delivery of their element of the work. The level of care, commitment, pride and passion in the job starts at the highest level of management and permeates through to all levels including site management and site installation team. We have not yet completed the project but are confident that with our on-going partnership with Speedclad we will deliver a fantastic defect-free building of exceptional quality, on time on budget, of which all involved can be rightly proud.”

R. Davies, Build Manager, Wates Construction

"Speedclad worked with BAM Construction on the first phase of the Beorma Quarter project in central Birmingham where they completed the glazing and curtain walling contract. Their approach from start to finish was professional, open and helpful and the end product achieved is excellent. They demonstrated a genuine pride in what they do and a real commitment to delivering a successful outcome for all involved.”

Joe Roarke, Contracts Manager Midlands, BAM Construction

"Speedclad is one of the few cladding companies I have worked with that have remained 100% committed throughout the project.  Everything they promised at tender was delivered. Each stage of the project was approached in a professional manner focusing on meeting our aspirations.  They worked intensely with the design team from day one and overcame some very technically demanding design issues. Having a dedicated site based Project Manager who understood the key drivers of the project ensured that safety, quality and delivery were of the highest priority throughout.  Nothing on the project was too much trouble.  Commercially they are non-contractual and the final account was settled with no issues. I would highly recommend them and look forward to working with them in the future.”

Jon Mangham, Senior Project Manager, Shepherd Construction

“Speedclad would be my first port of call on any project with a complex façade or envelope.  Every time I use their services they have provided a first class service which has demonstrated attention to detail and a wealth of technical expertise.”

Richard Ayres, Bid Manager, Balfour Beatty Construction Services UK

 “CGL Facades have worked with Speedclad for many years on numerous projects and it has always been a happy working relationship. Speedclad ensure they work closely with you on product and material selection at the front end so the best choices are made for the project.   This breeds a real feeling of ‘team effort’ once a project is secured and then delivered to the client’s satisfaction.   They are committed to working through everything from big decisions to fine details from the outset, which ensures everything runs as smoothly as possible once a project gathers speed. A team effort at the front end brings satisfaction of a job well done at completion.”

Brian McIntyre, Divisional Managing Director, CGL Facades
