Testimonials & Case Studies

I have used Cristofoli on a number of high profile projects in London and found that their approach to the design process was innovative and that they demonstrated a willingness to think outside the box. The results of this collaborative approach were: an increase in quality of product and installation, fixed programme durations that were achievable for both procurement and installation and better commercial gain. The use of prefabrication and lightweight stone backing ensured that the products were safer to handle. I would highly recommend the company and the senior management team for current or future works, I will be using them on upcoming projects that we are involved with
