“We had the pleasure of working with Clark and Kent Contractors in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk. Clark and Kent Contractors successfully won the tender to construct a large BMX Pump / Play track on previously unused land on our skate park site.
The BMX Track which Clark and Kent Contractors built was the main feature of significant site improvement programme for our Skate Park site. The improvement programme has been completely led by young people including raising 50,000 from the National Lottery's Changing Spaces fund.
Clark and Kent Contractors were completely behind the project and understood that it was youth led. Their support for the project was very evident in their approach. Clark and Kent Contractors took the young people's ideas for the track and developed a track which has been described by young people and the older BMX community as 'amazing'.
The completion of our track has sparked interest from other towns, councils and more importantly the local BMX Community within the area. These groups are now looking to develop similar facilities.
Clark and Kent were very reliable, hard working and driven to construct the best possible track to the highest standard. They did their upmost to be part of the project including attending our launch event.”
“Can I take this opportunity to thank you for the work undertaken by your company at the BMX track in Winsford. The professionalism shown by all of your staff is a credit to your company as is your prompt attention to any outstanding / remedial work. The contract period was completed as per schedule and your site management met with all our expectations. Your design of the improved track is being very well received by the local children and the improvements have resulted in the local club re-starting and running club night sessions.
I found dealing with your company to be a very positive experience and have no hesitation in recommending your company to undertake similar work.”
“I have employed Clark & Kent on the creation of a medium sized BMX track and for the improvements on three other BMX tracks during 2010. Telford & Wrekin Council have 14 BMX tracks and have previously employed a number of top BMX track builders from around the country.
I have found Clark & Kent to be extremely diligent, hard working, flexible and value for money. Their work is tidy and above all highly valued by the end user (BMX riders). Their designers and work on tracks shows a great understanding of both the sport and of the safety for the user and have resulted in a significant increase in the usage as a result of their improvements to design of existing tracks and to new facilities.
The flexibility of the company and after care is second to none. I have not in 18 years of managing recreational building contracts found a more passionate and committed company to the work that they do. There is a definite pride in their work which shows in the finished product. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this company to you.”
“We are a primary school which moved about 10 years ago into a high school premises. We inherited a large plot of land and an all weather pitch, which over the years was not used and became an eye sore. We decided to develop the ground and started with a small velladrome cycle track, and then extended the bank side into a mountain bike track, and finally the last part into a BMX track. Having acquired three quotes, Clark & Kent Contractors were successful in acquiring the contract, as they themselves are BMX riders and were able to give us lots of advice before they started. They were also highly recommended by their last project. Having only a few weeks to complete the work, they worked long hours and week-ends, to deliver the required work to a high standard within the short time scale allocated.
During the project, they were very polite, trustworthy, approachable and happy to give any advice. Nothing was too much trouble even though we made a few changes during the build. We are very happy with the track, and the pupils are looking forward to using it.
Clark and Kent are coming back in our opening day to give advice, and with a qualified coach, some training for the children, which is very commendable of them. We would not hesitate in recommending Clark and Kent Contractors for the building of any BMX track.”
“Clark & Kent of Shropshire have provided us with a BMX track that has proved to be well designed and extremely popular with the local BMX riders and also visiting riders who have all judged the facility to be a great success. Clark & Kent came up with an excellent layout and provided us with a substantial size of track that has received praise across the board for the cost of the track it has proved great value.
There were a couple of slight teething problems which Clark & Kent made themselves available at the shortest notice to return and address without any problem. The settling and after care of such a facility is of paramount importance of which Clark & Kent have dealt with in a professional attentive manner. We would be very happy to recommend them and would look to use their expertise again on a similar project.”
