“Bowhill Engineering has always demonstrated outstanding communication whether it be complying with contractual obligations or conveying engineering solutions to enhance the overall project directives and timelines.  Respect for our clients views and requirements have always been met with positive enthusiasm even when dealing with difficult or demanding circumstances.  Their QA and safety systems are very mature and it is clearly evident that they take seriously their commitment to safety and quality, in both action and documented processes… …RJE would highly recommend them to any organisation that requires an enthusiastic team to deliver high quality, cost competitive structural steel.”

“…Bowhill Engineering have strongly demonstrated over the course of the project that they are trustworthy, cooperative and have a noticeable positive, “can do” attitude…it’s been great to see a company “live & breath” the Quality Management System and Procedures that have been set up… their innovative ideas have saved us a lot of time particularly the storage of the beams for the Majors Road Bridge… This was a demanding project as the beams had been partly fabricated by another fabricator who had gone into receivership and Bowhill Engineering took up this difficult challenge to complete the works. This meant that the program to deliver these beams was extremely tight and required Bowhill to work over the Christmas break and make every effort to accelerate the works. At no point was there a negative attitude or any undertones that it couldn’t be done. Instead we found a can do attitude and a willingness to do anything to assist us claw back some of the time we had previously lost…”

"The steelwork component of these projects (Lock 7,8,9,10,1) was very technically challenging as many aspects were new in both their structural design and application….York Civil were impressed with and appreciative of the cooperative approach they took with the project. The quality of work produced was excellent, and they were a major part in ensuring the successful completion of a difficult project… The results achieved...has provided a positive impression for York Civil - company wide… It is clearly evident that the attitude of both the company as a whole and the individuals focused on producing an atmosphere and approach which encourages cooperation, innovation, and friendly interaction between all parties”.

"The manufacture of the Removable Deck Units (RDU’s) was one of the most challenging modules of work in this Project. The design, even when complete was really a well worked concept. Bowhill Engineering’s ability to model the RDU’s in their full operational mode overcame all of the potential problems and the deck installation was seamless. Given the distance from the factory, variety of coatings and the size of the RDUs any rework would have been costly, particularly in terms of time lost to the project program".
