 - Jim Baldwin, Metnor Group Ltd
I have always found them to be very responsive and effective project managers. They have carried out, on behalf of our clients, various tarmac and ground work contracts which have met our cost, quality and programme expectations. It is refreshing to work with a company willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done right and to a very high quality.

 - Tom Punton. Middlesbrough Council
Great work from Ben and the team at Terra Firma, quality job, on time and within budget.
 - Paddy O'Connor, CEO USL Group
"Ben and his team have undertaken work for me in previous roles at sites in the North East, so when Terra Firma were put forward to complete remedial works for the car park on our site at Business Central in Darlington I was more than happy. The work was undertaken on behalf of our main building contractors(Wilmott Dixon) as their original subcontractor had failed to complete to satisfactory standards. As the client/end user, we were very impressed with the whole process. The employees were polite, well organised, completed on time and with very little disruption to the tenants or visitors to our Business Centre. The standard of finished work was far superior to the original. I would be happy to recommend Terra Firma to other companies and wouldn’t hesitate to contact Ben if we ever need any type of work like this again ourselves."
 - Vanessa Wood - Centre Manager Darlington Business Central

 - C Smithson, Builder
I have always found them to be very responsive and to have hands on management style. They have carried out, on behalf of our clients, various concrete, tarmac and ground work contracts which have met our cost, quality and programme expectations. It is refreshing to work with a company willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done right and to a very high quality. I find them extremely committed to providing a high quality of workmanship, which is evidenced by the finished product which is invariably second to none. I would have no hesitation in using TerraFirma again, or in recommending them to others.
