See what our happy customers have to say about Whitnell’s. 

Hawes Associates

Whitnell’s have been the successful tenderer on six major earthworks contracts let by Hawes Associates in the last three years. The work is primarily large farm reservoirs designed within the ambit of the 1975 Reservoirs Act (As Amended). In addition to reservoirs Whitnell’s have also constructed intertidal flood levees on soft ground as designed and specified by Hawes Associates.

I am able to say that on each of the projects Whitnell’s competence has never been in question. All the projects have been completed on time, when the weather allows, and to budget.

The quality of the work and the plant provided has been excellent and the GPS 3D ground model control has been extremely helpful.

ACS Midlands

When Whitnell’s first came to this site at Wantage most of the guys on site had never seen a scraper, some wondered what on earth they were when they came off the low loaders.

When we put them to work the guys were standing around watching them, videoing and taking photos for hours with amazement. Out of about 50 guys on site only 3 of us had ever had the pleasure of working with them in the past and boy have they performed.

We will definitely be calling on Lionel Whitnell and his gang for any future earthworks contracts we get.

David Williams Golf Design

I have utilised Whitnells over the last 15 years, principally in the construction of new golf courses throughout the south-east of England.
The building of these courses has entailed the excavation and construction of numerous ponds and lakes, some forming reservoirs to store vital winter water, and others to add golfing and aesthetic interest to the course.
I have always found Whitnells to be extremely thorough and diligent in all aspects of the contract, leading to very many successful projects built on budget and on programme.

Thomas Bates and Son Limited

We have used Whitnells for a number of years on various “Earthmoving/Roadworks/Ponds/Landscaping/ and Groundworks”Projects.

Lionel Whitnells formula for success is quite simple, a modern plant fleet, a skilled workforce together with his many years experience in the industry.

Whitnells have always delivered our projects on time and to budget but most importantly for us, they can be trusted to carry out the work professionally and to the highest standards.  One less thing for us to worry about!

Prime Irrigation

Prime Irrigation have worked with Whitnells recently constructing 2 Irrigation storage reservoirs on farms in the Suffolk area this year. We have found them to be very conscientious and methodical. Their communication throughout the builds with all those involved, has been excellent and the finished reservoirs have been built to specification in a very tidy and efficient manner.

Bentwaters Park

I am writing to you regarding the work that you have recently completed for us, the construction of our 14 million gallon lined reservoir, at Wantisden Hall Farms. Having not used your company previously, I have to say how impressed I was with the standard of your work. The onsite management, operator competence have been second to none and with the site being left in such tidy order I would have no hesitation in recommending you and your company to anyone undertaking large scale engineering projects. I hope to do business with you again,
