Abercrombie & Fitch
“I have worked with Powells on multiple Abercrombie & Fitch and Hollister projects over the past two years. Throughout the course of construction, Powells employees displayed a high level of professionalism, dedication, and commitment to quality. Powells approached each project as a partnership and worked well with our internal project team to help find solutions and overcome challenges. Powells also has a strong working knowledge of unique rules, regulations, and processes required to successfully complete projects in the UK.
I would confidently recommend Powells for any future retail construction projects in the UK.”
Jim Coughlin – Abercrombie and Fitch, Store Construction
“We have been working with Powells for nine years since we awarded them their first Prada project in Sloane Street. Since this time, we have been continually impressed by their professionalism, their team spirit and their attention to details and fine finish.
Having developed a good working relationship with the team, we remain happy with Powells and having run concurrent prestigious projects in Brompton Road and Regent Street, they have proved themselves in their interior contracting abilities and experience. Our latest project, Alexander Wang in Albermarle Street in London was particularly pleasing and had a variety of high quality finishes which were executed to an excellent standard.
We have no hesitation in recommending Powells for any contracting works and look forward to working with them on our future projects.”
Paolo Chiarotti – Gregori Chiarotti Architects, Director

Their ability to deal with any challenge thrown at them sets them apart from a number of other contractors we have worked with and their personnel are professional, well-disciplined and approachable even when dealing with exacting demands.”
David Lilley – Fatface Ltd, Construction Manager of UK & IE
“During our association with Powells, I have found their work to be of a consistently high standard and have been particularly pleased with their workforce at all levels. Powells project management has been of a high standard and most importantly for us the two-way communication has been timely and clear. Our business relationship has grown as a direct result of their ability to deliver quality work consistently, to programme and on budget. I would recommend them with confidence for similar work as they have completed here.”

“Powells Group have just completed a major refurbishment of the Grade 1 Listed Manor House and an extension and refurb of the Main Restaurant, Bar and Lounge at the Four Seasons Hotel Dogmersfield Hampshire.
The firm worked closely with the Project Managers and the Design Team to adhere to the necessary restrictions on a Grade 1 Listed Building and the end result is considered fully in keeping with the original buildings and to the highest standards.”
John Balance, Bruce Shaw – Four Seasons Hotel, Dogmersfield
“I can’t tell you how much we appreciate working with you and the Powells team on the Glossier popup. We are very grateful for our relationship and your team’s dedication to delivering quality and a timely completion.”
Ken Pickart – Glossier
“We were first introduced to Powells Ltd after they won the competitive tender to build 10 Hills Place an iconic 14,220 sq ft office building in 2007. During the construction period of 2 years we built up a fantastic working relationship and we were constantly impressed by their professionalism, quality of workmanship and willingness to actually ‘work with us’ – a trait not often seen in the construction industry. Their ability to understand the complex forms and finite detailing required by us ensured that the building completed was of an outstanding quality which went on to win numerous awards such as CAB Aluminium in Renovation Award UK, European Aluminium Award and the NAS Design Partnership Award.
Since then we have continued to recommend Powells and have used them on Size + Matter (a London Design Festival installation), a bespoke private house in London and even on the refurbishment of our own new 9,500 sq ft office.
We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Powells to you should you want a conscientious contractor with the ability to deliver buildings of the highest quality.”
Ho-Yin Ng – ALA Architects, Director
“Complex building, high standard of finishes, well managed. Powells took on the construction of the Hilton at the Ageas Bowl Southampton at a difficult stage, and diligently applied their management, procurement and construction expertise in a highly pressurised situation. The tireless site managers worked closely with EPR and the design team throughout to deliver excellent bedrooms, and a high quality of finish in the public areas and restaurants. We enjoyed working with the Powells team and we all take great pride in this unique hotel. Good work guys!”
Nick Rayner – EPR Architects, Associate Director

MG Project Management
“I have known and worked with Powells Ltd since 1998 completing a variety of interior projects for the likes of the Inditex Group, Forever 21, Cipriani, Clarendon Properties and AAA Investments. I have always found them a professional team with a ‘can do’ approach, consistently delivering quality on time. They have vast experience and knowledge of the various disciplines required to complete any projects. They would be more than capable of meeting any challenge offered from any prospective client requiring a quality/timely fit out. MGPM have presented some very challenging projects over the years and they have always excelled and are one of the most conscientious contractors we work with; their attention to detail is second to none. I have always found Powells to be an excellent company to work with and an asset to the project”
James Griffiths – MG Project Management Ltd, Director & Project Manager
“Thank you and all the team at Powells for a job well done. In terms of delivery and client satisfaction, this project has been, in our opinion, an outstanding success and a credit to all involved…it has been an incredibly demanding project. The level of site coordination and control required to incorporate the number of unique design elements was extraordinary. Couple this with the challenging programme and standard of finish demanded by the client and then the potential of strain between all parties was enormous. However, due to your comprehensive and calm management this was never an issue. It has been a pleasure working with you…and I have no hesitation in recommending Powells for any future projects…”
