"I have worked with GKR Associates since 2002 where they have drawn up specifications for major works contracts as well as party wall agreements, site visits to investigate building faults and reports on condensation and other property issues. Their reports and paperwork are excellent. The major works they have overseen have been completed successfully and professionally by them. We have received only favourable reports from our leaseholders about their politeness and reliability. I would have no hesitation in recommending them as I have always found them a pleasure to work with."Miss K Young, Hamilton King Management Ltd
