“We were delighted with the whole project from start to finish and the way AGB helped us get the most out of the process from both a cost and a design perspective. Their suggestions were knowledgeable and immensely helpful in giving us direct advice and solutions to our queries as they arose.

We were kept updated with regular site meetings and we were most impressed with the way the project ran – everyone who was meant to be on site, was on site; everything worked well – it was very impressive.

Job Description: Internal Structural Alterations
Client: Mr & Mrs Brookfield

“We chose AGB to do our internal conversion making our separate kitchen and dining room into one family living space. We found Allan and his team to be very easy to work with and the results were exactly what we wanted. As we were not living in the property at the time they project managed the works and kept us up to speed with progress.

I would not hesitate to recommend AGB to my friends or family and would happily use them again ourselves.”

They also had the ability to keep the site & works consistently neat & tidy with very little rubbish / debris lying around at all times and the quality of the works was first class.

In conclusion, AGB had the ability to get the job done correctly and to a high standard of workmanship, they were helpful at all times, kept within the financial parameters of the project and I have no hesitation in recommending them for future projects."

Gillian Brailsford, Perth

Job Description: Minor Works Project

"I was aware of AGB through a friend, but I had also heard & viewed pictures of work they had carried out & was very impressed. I was dealt with professionally and was not afraid to ask for something I deemed to be out-with the “normal”. I was kept fully up to date by the Workmen at all times and was aware of when they were to be coming back the following day. I was impressed at the neatness and tidiness of how my house was left at the end of the working day.

The completed contract exceeded my expectations and I couldn’t be happier with the finished product. I would not hesitate to recommend AGB for their professionalism, pricing and workmanship."

Job Description: Develop two plots at Whitehill farm

Kenmore Hotel & Luxury Lodges

Job Description: Conversion & Extension of Boathouse and Construction of 2 riverfront cottages

“Having been recommended to us by several other local Architects, I worked recently with AGB on a number of projects in the village of Kenmore. The projects ranged from new build holiday homes on a tight riverside site to the sensitive refurbishment and extension to a number of listed buildings within a historic conservation area. Allan’s ‘hands on’ approach to managing progress and monitoring the build quality was invaluable in delivering a complex project to a tight programme whilst maintaining the high level of finish quality required for five star holiday accommodation. Build costs were competitive and monitored and controlled efficiently by Billy during the build, with any cost adjustments during construction negotiated swiftly in a fair and transparent fashion. Opportunities for savings which were regularly identified by AGB where appropriate.

In today’s climate of restricted budgets, strict deadlines and tight profit margins it is easy to resort to an adversarial and contractual approach when the inevitable problems arise during construction. It was refreshing to have a contractor who worked in partnership with the design team and client to find pragmatic, cost effective solutions to the unforeseen on-site challenges that cropped up. Similarly, AGB took the initiative to re-programmed works to mitigate potential time delays that would otherwise have been caused by circumstances outwith their control.

It is rare these days to have a project where the “snagging list” at project completion is short enough to fit on a single sheet of A4. It is testament to AGB’s proactive management and quality of work that all the Kenmore projects fall into this category. Most importantly the result was a very satisfied client and a product that we all can be proud of, and McKenzie Strickland Associates would not hesitate to work with AGB again on future projects.”

Millers Lade Avenue, Sauchie

Job Description: removal of fencing and construction of a gabion retaining wall

AGB were recommended to us by a 3rd party who was aware of a recent contract with a client of theirs.  From the initial contact to delivery of our small, but difficult, contract, we were pleased with how the job was undertaken.  The Tender was accurate and the job delivered within cost.
Regular meetings on site meant that work / issues were explained with practical solutions to ensure the programme was maintained.   Any cost variations were explained fully and issues resolved via refreshingly constructive dialogue.  Constructive communication was a refreshing experience as certain aspects of the job required to be decided whilst in progress due to situations which were uncovered.

All in all it was an excellent job delivered by operatives who displayed a pride in completing the job to the satisfaction of the client and we would have no hesitation in recommending AGB.

W George Tainsh (Director)
Ochil View Housing Association Ltd


It is rare nowadays to receive compliments on how construction work is carried out however in this instance the approach by AGB was helpful, proactive and carried out to a high standard with minimum of fuss to adjoining residents, all of which resulted in a very positive conclusion to the remedial works at Millers Lade Gardens.

Job Description: Construction of a Timber Frame New Build Dwelling

“We would have no hesitation in recommending AGB. This was more than a build project for us : it was making our dream retirement home. AGB won the contract following a competitive tendering process : from the first meeting with Allan Brown and his team we were impressed with their professionalism, patience, flexibility and openness.

During the build phase these first impressions were reinforced several times over. The site foreman was immense in his attention to detail and we found all trades involved in the project to take real pride in their quality of workmanship.

Everything was done to our specifications and we could rely on AGB to respond and sort any issues we raised as promptly as possible.”

Kenmore Hotel & Luxury Lodges

Job Description: Conversion & Extension of Boathouse and Construction of 2 riverfront cottages

 “The problems of dealing with builders and building projects in general are legendary and usually a good supply of aspirin is needed to carry one through to completion.

I have carried out projects in Europe, England but mostly Scotland. In the main most builders try to satisfy their clients but almost invariably there are problems in quality of finish, time, overspend etc. unless you have the AGB experience.

AGB tendered on a small development of mine in Kenmore. There was a renovation of an old cottage and two new semi-detached cottages and with the added complication of being in a conservation area with a complicated problem with a historic wall. They were the chosen best tenderer but there was some initial nervousness as I had never dealt with the company before. They seemed very straightforward, honest and keen to finish the job to the highest standard........and.............they did just that! The project was finished on time, on budget and to the highest quality. Any teething problem was immediately resolved and therefore I have no hesitation in recommending AGB. I would be happy for anyone to examine the quality of their work.

Finally........thank you AGB.”
