“As a result of the excellent work Trinity Renovations carried out for the Church at Pitmaston House in Birmingham. They were the natural choice for us to complete renovation work at our Duckworth Mills site in Manchester. Trinity worked diligently and safely and closed out this project for us once again on time and to budget.”

Project Completions Manager – The Church of Scientology

“We were delighted to work with Trinity Renovations on renovating Pitmaston House and enabling us to open it to our local community. They worked collaboratively with us, showing great skill and dedication. They also achieved all of our deadlines and budget goals.”

Project Director on Pitmaston House – Clearview Management

“We were impressed with Trinity Renovations and how they managed to restore so much of Pitmaston House’s original masonry and stonework, and so many of its windows that we thought were beyond repair!”
