Chris Hayton - David Hayton Garage, Carlisle

I would like to personally thank the entire Story Construction team for the 1st class job they did on delivering Story Homes, new head office, Story House. The building has exceeded my own expectations. Refurbishing an old and complex building is never easy and it is easy to say we faced come big challenges with this one! Despite this the project was delivered on time and most importantly, on budget! Thank you and well done!
