Howard was extremely organised in the preparation for my refurbishment project. He spent time to make sure that the costings and the works schedule were both achievable and realistic. His creative input was invaluable in delivering this on time and on budget.

He and the entire team were a pleasure to work with and really went the extra mile to make sure that l was happy with the results.

It’s daunting to find someone who can deliver a full refurbishment project when you are on a tight deadline, but Howard made it happen and to a high standard. I have no hesitation in recommending him.

Howard and his team have done an outstanding job in creating for us a beautiful studio from just a shell of a space, on time and on budget. We had some last minute changes to the project which they were able to fulfil. Communication was always great, and we are very happy to recommend HPSUK.

HPS is a wonderful contractor, that I would recommend for any refurbishment or small building jobs.

Run by Howard Gold, the firm has helped me completely refurbish and redecorate two flats, which were in very poor repair and had to be completely gutted. Howard is very good at working to a budget. He helped me find reasonably priced kitchen and bathroom fittings and the various floor and walls tiles that we needed. And he even managed to negotiate a substantial discount on purchases from large suppliers.

The work was fast and efficient. In both cases the flats were ready within four weeks. And his skilled staff were very good at finding simple solutions to tricky problems. The flats, which were rental properties, both looked marvellous. And we had no trouble finding tenants. One of them was done four years ago and the flat continues to look very modern and stylish. And he was able to supply the various gas and electrical safety certificates, which we needed. I would have no hesitation in recommending HPS.

We hired Howard Gold and his team to renovate our Georgian three bedroom flat in East London.
The full renovation took around 10 weeks, and included a new kitchen, two new bathrooms, new flooring, redecoration of the living room and bedrooms, extensive refurbishment of the sash windows, as well as various works to the communal areas and outside the property. Throughout the job, Howard, Nelu and the team were professional and courteous. They worked fast, but the results were always to a high standard. There was clear communication regarding the budget, and Howard was very helpful in directing us towards suppliers, and providing advice about alternative options when we were unsure how to proceed. Howard and Nelu were always easy to get hold of, and we always felt as if they made us a priority. We would be very happy to work with them again.

A significant and persistent damp issue in the lower back end of my flat had been “bodged” a few times. Electrics were an issue and the whole thing was a mess. Howard and team were called in (based on some previous work they had completed at our offices). They are that elusive mix of efficient and sensitive in their approach to both work and neighbours. The site is tiny, and very much overlooked and yet the progress made was rapid and without complaint. Issues arose that were dealt with by experienced tradesmen and my custom design ideas were listened to, and respected by the team who helped source the parts I particularly wanted. Howard was on site regularly to ensure deadlines were (always) met and that I was fully updated as to every step or to explain where there was unavoidable additional expense.

All in all – A big thank you for a job well done 🙂

It gives me great pleasure to provide this testimony for Mr Howard Gold of HSP (UK) limited.

Howard and his team came to the rescue after a major renovation project went horribly wrong when another contractor left site and defrauded us with a fairly large sum of money. The flat was a boarded shell with no plumbing, electrics or windows.

Howard was recommended to us by friends who worked with him previously. We visited a number of projects that were completed by Howard and we were very impressed with the quality of work and more so with the excellent relationship he has formed with his previous clients, who all spoke highly of Howard and the team.

Howard and the team commend work with an army of workers. He completed the project on time and on budget. He proved to be realiable, efficient and has an excellent work ethic. We felt safe dealing with Howard.

Special thanks to Nelu (foreman) and the team who were very friendly, amenable and willing to help.

We would highly recommend Howard and his team.

Howard and his team took on a job last minute and completed the work to a good standard. His workers were nice, considerate and willing to make any adjustments and fixations when required. Howard is a reliable individual and great to work with. Trustworthy and he sticks to his word. Thank you HPS 🙂 Look forward to working with you again soon.

From start to finish Howard and his team have been fantastic. Every day they were punctual, at least 10 men on the job, clean and courteous, work was completed on time and constant contact was maintained throughout to ensure we were happy at every stage. From offering solutions to issues that arose, to great ideas for best use of space, to getting us the best deals on supplies, Nelu and Howard were very knowledgable and hands on. We are very happy with the quality of work completed, the way in which our project was managed and with the personal service that we received. Would definitely recommend and most certainly hire them again, many thanks to all the team!

Howard and his team did a fantastic job on our shower room and bathroom – they were helpful, gave great advice and I felt we all worked together to make both rooms perfect. The shower room was gutted, refitted and decorated (including a new floor). The work was carried out speedily and to a very high standard – we love it. I really appreciated Howard’s and his team’s patience with us – one of many examples occurred when we went to buy a shower unit without one of the measurements we needed – Howard and his team pulled together to get it for us so that we didn’t have to have a long journey to and from the shop again. The bathroom was a smaller job – a new floor, replacement of taps, shower handset and toilet, the creation of a beautiful fitted wall unit (which I drew and they made up for me), decoration and fixing of new fittings. Because of the care Howard’s team took, the room is amazing. It really felt like a team effort on all our parts. Thank you Howard! I highly recommend HPS – you guys are great!

I acquired a house in Edgware that was built in the 1940’s. It had never been touched and was very much a time warp project. I live in California, I was recommended to Howard of HPS, he took over the complete project and arranged the Architect, Structural Engineer, party wall surveyor, new electrics, gas and water feeds. The house was turned from a traditional boring 3 bedroom semi-detached into a stunning 5-bedroom home with loft conversion, rear extension, open plan kitchen/breakfast area, 3 bathrooms and stunning garden.

I gave HPS a budget and they made every decision from kitchen and bathroom design to wood flooring down to pain colours.

The house is stunning with all modern fixtures and features.

The house was immediately rented and HPS was the best decision I ever made.

I would absolutely recommend Howard and HPS and all the men for any future project.
