What our clients say

We find that Pennington Choices are friendly and approachable, they are happy to help when needed and offer assistance. They are happy to tailor to our needs and are flexible to work with. We also have found that they are progressive as to how they offer their asbestos service and as a result of this, they now offer an appointment booking service for our residents via text messaging, which gives us a better rate of success for access and is a better service for our residents.

Michele Hart – Senior Project Manager, Luton Borough Council -

Working closely with Pennington Choices over the last two years we have supported their rail business through audit and more recently in working closely with their rail project delivery. All persons we have worked with, from operational staff through to the senior management team have shown a desire and commitment to ensuring projects are delivered safely and in accordance with industry standards. It is always a pleasure to work with an organisation who embrace compliance and are willing to learn and improve.

Richard Bell - Managing Director, PRB Consulting

We have been working with Pennington Choices (PC) for the past 2 years. PC staff are always professional, punctual and knowledgeable about the various subject matter. Their approach to achieving the objective is co-operative, straight forward and informative, enabling us to learn from the wealth of experience and knowledge as part of the process.

Nick Pike - Wrekin Housing Group, Building Services Manager

Fantastic session, bringing out the key points of the draft building safety bill and draft fire safety bill. Well done and thank you Pennington Choices.

Emma Murphy - Assistant Director - Property, Thrive Homes

At West Leeds Family Practice we have had Pennington Choices deliver close to a one million pound project to provide a health building. It has been a complex project with lots of difficulties which have all been resolved with thorough and careful project management. Through Pennington Choices we have had a thoroughly professional and responsive Professional Management Team which has reduced the risk and worry when dealing with a big scheme. The Covid-19 pandemic has been a huge challenge to the delivery of the scheme, however, Pennington Choices has delivered the project to budget, and very close to the time scale proposed. We would recommend their services to others.

West Leeds PCN – Clinical Director -

The best decision we ever made was working with Andy. He offered invaluable support and help throughout the whole process and always had time to answer any of our questions. Andy was able to govern the NHS bureaucratic process to ensure we delivered our project on time and within budget. The professionalism and commitment was exceptional.

I must say when we initially looked at what Andy would be doing we didn’t appreciate the importance of having the right person looking after the project.  Working through the whole process we can happily say the cost of Andy was worth every penny. I would recommend Andy without any hesitation.

Since its inception in 2010, we have received a professional and reasonable view on the issues that arose during this £30m project. Having worked together previously on smaller projects, we knew where to go for the attention to detail and prompt responses to queries we needed to assist us in making timely decisions that benefit the Trust. We have our award-winning new build, and as a result, the Trust goes from strength to strength.

I’ve been impressed with the approach taken as they’ve worked to develop our OBC. They’ve been keen to meet our needs and expectations throughout, responding flexibly to changing requirements. The range of specialists that they draw upon gives me confidence that both the process and the product will stand up to scrutiny and their effective communication means they’re a pleasure to work with.

Having worked on previous projects together here at Sherwood Forest Hospitals Trust, I was delighted that they were appointed to project manage the Outline Business Case for the New Theatre and CCU proposed development here at the Trust.

They are always available if I have any concerns or if I need to clarify any points from meetings/discussions.

A detailed piece of work carried out by Pennington Choices that reviewed high level risks and linked to practical solutions and a simple to follow action plan.
