“It was so good to hear how pleased the Brookside Team are of the new kitchen installation.We appreciate how you have had to pick this project up at the last minute and run with the needs of the service whilst coordinating the team to complete the works; and to finish bang on schedule.Please pass on our thanks to your site team.My minds still blown how they got that huge fridge in, hat’s off to them”

“We absolutely love our new café and it has certainly gone down a treat with our community. Thank you very much for all of the hard work that went into bringing our vision to life!”

“From design to drawing through to the approval process, you and your team were extremely professional and really turned around some of the changes made last minute. The client was extremely happy with the end result”

“I wanted to thank your team for delivering such a fantastic project for us. We have received nothing but the most positive customer feedback and we look forward to working on future projects with the IFSE team”

“We would like to say a massive congratulations and thank you for delivering a first-rate project! The entire team were delighted with the work and the way it was carried out and the professional attitude of your entire team”

“Oundle School owe thanks to you and your team for the design and delivery of a much-needed refurbishment, completed on-time and on-budget.
We hope this starts a snowball effect to work together again in the future”

“The recent installation at King’s Kitchen is the new ‘jewel in the crown’ of our catering offer. John and the team at IFSE have delivered yet another fantastic restaurant for us and the finished result has been extremely well received”.

“The whole project was managed with great professionalism by the IFSE Team. Communication throughout the project was excellent at every level and the end results were breath-taking and delivered within the project timeline.
I am delighted that IFSE has helped demonstrate the quality of BaxterStorey’s preferred supplier partnership on this critical project.”

“The Café has been developed to create a warm and inviting space for our customers to relax as part of their shopping experience. The new operating model allows for a seamless ordering process and improved speed, whilst delivering exceptional M&S quality food and drink that our customers know and trust.”

“If you think about where we are now, compared to where we were three years ago, it’s a very different environment… It’s a great working environment, we can now use this as a meeting facility. I’ve been in and out as it’s been constructed, but I think to see it now completed is something to be incredibly proud of.”

“Every chef and catering operator dreams of a space that really works. The kitchen and restaurant areas meet our requirements, and then some!”.

“There was no doubt from very early on that IFSE really got the brief, they understood what we were trying to do, they understood our ethics and they understood that we didn’t just want a new facility, but we wanted it to be low impact. They really worked hard at asking the right questions. And from when we first got the tender return, I was absolutely convinced that they were the right company to work with”.

“I saw the Superdrug fit out and the Café area looked really great! Nice job by you guys at IFSE”

 “I’ve already seen a difference, our chefs used to take almost 2 hours to prep for lunch serve, now we’ve cut that in half!… I know for a fact the cooking quality now is the best in the market.”

“Everyone involved in the project has been very pleased with the work of IFSE. From initial contact all the way to completion, IFSE has been very professional, flexible, thorough and caring. The result of the work is identical to the visual originally proposed, which is worth mentioning as not very common. Everything was delivered on time and on budget and no stone was left unturned. IFSE expertise enable them to propose efficient solutions as problem arise, which is very useful”
