The Challenge

This award-winning scheme is part of a major regeneration project helping London Borough of Ealing to develop the estates new identity and create a sustainable ‘Community of Choice’.

United Living is one of our contractors of choice. I, and the project team, have found this company and personnel to be conscientious, open and supportive of our aims and objectives. They have demonstrated sound management and leadership skills that has enabled us to work to our programme and to the quality expected. We are a demanding client with high standards, which United Living responded to in a very positive and professional manner. We have established excellent working relationships at director level, senior and middle management levels.
