“A first class, seamless, service

SHW oversaw the development, construction and management of our Portfolio of twenty Dr’s Surgeries in South East England, from inception, for 10 years from 2001.

Their first class performance was underlined when we sold the company and NO issues were found relating to the properties during a full formal due diligence."
