Why Powells?

“From the initial enquiry through to sign off, it was fantastic to work with an amazing efficient team.  The building that Powell & Co constructed is amazing and met all the specifications we required.  Regular consultation with the team during the build ensured all elements were covered and the building has been designed with future expansion in mind.”  Emma Stevens, T Swift & Son, Wheaton Ashton, Staffordshire.
