We believe that honest, straight-talking relationships reap the most reward in life and business. We’ve had the pleasure of demonstrating that to some of the biggest names in the industry, right down to the independent specialists.

“Both on and offsite aspects of the works, Base carried out their responsibilities to a highly professional standard and played a key role as one of our key subcontractors on the project to assist in successful delivery of our main contract.”
“I couldn’t speak more highly of Base Structures. From the initial enquiry, Andy Traynor has been an excellent source of advice and support throughout, speaking to him sooner would have saved us a lot of time and money! I shall be contacting Andy in the future when we are ready for our next project!”
“The feedback that I have had from everyone who has worked with you and your team has been incredibly positive. From my point of view it has been a real pleasure to work with such a professional team”
“They (Base) are the ultimate professionals. Easy to work with, positive, responsible and ultimately get the job done.”
“We’ve worked with other fabric contractors over the years. Frankly Base have shown an altogether higher level of service and professionalism.”
“Thank goodness we were working with Base Structures. They have an incredible ability to deliver complex projects under duress and extreme timescales. Their collaborative approach and innovative thinking was outstanding, and their approach to safety on such a difficult project was second to none. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with Base again – they are a trusted partner and worked seamlessly with us throughout.”
“It has been a pleasure having contractors on site with such a can do and positive attitude.”
“Base have provided us with professional services from conception through to completion, a pleasant experience and an excellent job.”
“Zero incidents on a project this complex in very taxing weather would be a remarkable achievement for most companies, but it’s all in a day’s work for Base Structures. The prescient approach brought by the team – smoothing the way to keeping the building operational, despite developing design during the contract due to pre-construction access restrictions – made it a pleasure to work with them all. It’s rather sad we don’t expect to see them back for 25-30 years (on this job anyway!).”
“The large areas of high performance and versatile temporary weather screening allowed even the most sensitive of the fit-out works to progress in the poorest of weather conditions.”
“It has been a pleasure to work with Base Structures on the J.S. Bach Chamber Music Hall. They have a positive attitude and flexible approach towards challenging proposals. Their creativity, breadth of experience, and attention to detail were invaluable to the success of the project.”
“A partner who operates with the same level of integrity, is a partner you can 100% rely on. That partner is Base Structures.”
“The project demanded a large, fully enclosed secure environment whose barrier was as invisible as possible. Standard building construction and engineering methods are not suitable for good zoo projects, the key is to adapt materials and technology to suit the purpose.”
“It was refreshing to work with a straight-talking provider with a wealth of knowledge and experience. At WWT we like to develop an honest working relationship with our providers and our choice of Base Structures reflected this philosophy.”
“We were extremely impressed by the ingenious problem solving methods of work that were employed by Base. The hard work ethic is also very prevalent within Base’s organisation from Director level right through the work force.”
