Morning Derek,

Just wanted to say a big thanks to yourself and your construction team for the instillation of our pool. The whole process from the initial inquiry through planning and construction was fantastic. The final result is outstanding so much so that we are kicking ourselves that we did not do this earlier. Once again many thanks from Ann and myself.

Hello Derek,

Wanted to say how pleased with are with the pool and terrace area that your company have constructed at our villa in benimar. From the time you came around to discuss and quote for the work everything was done with care and attention. The whole project was carried out in an extremely professional manner and the work force were first class. We were kept up to date with developements which we found really helpful as we weren't in spain at the time the work was completed .
Everything that was promised was carried out and communication was excellent. The whole thing was a large project and we are massively pleased with the outcome.
Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Derek and his workers for any sort of work.

Hi Derek,

We would like to thank Derek, Javiar and the whole team for constructing our beautiful pool, surrounding walls and patio tiling. We had held a number of discussions with other companies before we engaged with the SandQuist team but as we wanted to install a pool in a limited space we never had the confidence that they could deliver what we wanted and for it all to be illegal. Derek was the ultimate professional and extremely knowledgeable, not only of the construction aspect but also of the project process and obtaining approvals, etc, from the townhall. He answered all our questions, put us at ease and seemessly managed the whole process; nothing was too much trouble. Javiarís team worked tirelessly with excellent workmanship throughout the build and were extremely polite and respectful of our property. I have no hesitation to recommended Derek and the SandQuist to anybody wanting a swimming pool constructed or with any other construction project. Thank you all once again, we canít wait for the warm weather to try it out!.

Best Regards

Dear Derek,

Just wanted to thank you, Javi and all of the hard working crew who constructed our pool. Linda and I were impressed by their hard work and cheerful attitude even to the point of teaching me more Spanish. They worked quickly and efficiently with only a small amount of disruption to our property, the end result is truly worth it, we are very pleased. You were very helpful in the planning and keeping us informed of any delays or when loads were being delivered. So once again Thank you all for a great job well done and we will have no hesitation in recommending you.

Best Regards

Hi Derek,

Just have to say a few words, when we first bought our property in Spain, we wanted to have a pool built, after getting several quotes, we chose to go with you, you were very helpful,informed and we felt at ease with you. We were nervous of all the horror stories we had heard but ouir worries were soon put to bed and the you made the process very clear.

Your workforce Willy, Juan and Quique were outstanding and are a credit to you, trustworthy, very hard working, polite a great team you have. Your constant updates and site visits were very reassuring and professional. We would have no hesitation on recommending you. The stage payments were clear and easy. We never felt pressured at all by you.

If you would like to bring people to show your great workmanship. You are very welcome.

Thanks for everything.

Hi Derek

Thank you for an excellent job extending our balcony in front of the house with underlying garage complete with garage doors and a side door as well as building a wall to separate the garage area from the rest of the area under our house. The lads did a small miracle in the ďinsideĒ area building a fully tiled bathroom as well as doing tiles on the floor, fixing the walls and boxing in the pipes in the ceiling and doing all electric installations and water/waste pipes on the job.

I really appreciate the quality of the work as well as the fact that you did everything when you said you would. Everything was completed in time. It was really easy to stay in contact with you Derek. I appreciate your quick replies to any questions or thoughts I sent you through e-mail. I also like that you are a very serious and direct person. That makes it easy to establish and decide things. The fact that I was is Sweden most of the time when the construction went on was not a problem as I was kept in the loop all the time getting pictures of the progress of the work. I think you should be proud of the way that you conduct business as well as the quality of the work that your lads do.

I wish you all the best!

Kind Regards

Playa Flamenca

After having several quotations for a swimming pool we were impressed with the professionalism of sandquist, from the first contact with Derek and throughout the construction this was carried on through to the end. Nothing was too much trouble for the workforce, who were very obliging as we changed our minds on minor aspects regarding our tiling and borders.

Thank you very all very much.

Hi Derek,

Just to say we have sent instructions to our bank today to transfer 650 Euros to yourselves - 400 for six months pool maintainance and 250 for the additional pipework when building, this should be within you in the next couple of days. We are over on Thursday 19th April for a long weekend, maybe we can meet up then to sign the contract for the pool maintenance. Thanks again for doing such a great job with our pool we are absolutely delighted with it, please pass on our thanks to the team who built it also.
