Client Testimonials

"I have performed 2 random safety inspections each week and have been unable to find a single misdemeanour or violation to report. The BPL safety department have also been making visits and I have heard no negative feedback from them. This may be standard for C J Prior but is nonetheless impressive and worthy of due credit to all involved. Thanks and well done. ... "

Project Manager, BPL

"We have used C J Pryor on the Hitchin Grade Separation project for the construction of a rail embankment using approximately 100,000m3 of chalk sourced and transported from an adjacent extraction pit. Further works packages were also awarded including drainage and reinforced earth walling. The main embankment works were carried out during the unseasonably wet summer of 2012 with all programme milestones being achieved. All works have been carried out to a high standard and we would not hesitate to recommend C J Pryor for similar works. "

"Angflor has used Pryors services for the past 2 years levelling a total of 22ha / 54 acres. Our experience is that Pryors are a good, professional and competitive company to work with. They can provide all required H&S documentation, run a site in a safe and efficient manner and complete the job to a high standard. When there are issues Pyrors are very responsive. By using Pryors we saved time and made sure we were able to get on the site as quickly as we could."

Patrick Bastow, Managing Director

"We approached a number of contractors who had the experience and equipment to construct a reservoir to the design specified, and finally settled on CJ Pryor from Harlow Common in Essex. They were certainly up for the job and were completely professional in every aspect of the work they completed. I cannot speak highly enough of them."
