"I first met Edd Sevestre and the team at Tekne in 2015. I was looking for a new contractor to undertake a sensitive, multi-million-pound refurbishment and renovation of a hotel, housed in a Grade 1 listed Elizabethan Manor House in Devon.

Tekne entered the frame having been recommended by friends in the hospitality industry as contractors who care about the detail. Having completed that project and several other smaller ones since, I can honestly say Tekne have surpassed my expectation. I am a very ‘hands on’ client and found the site team backed up by the factory resource an extremely responsive and proactive combination. I have no hesitation in recommending them to others in our industry looking for a detail orientated contractor."
