The reason why we have a western management team is for this exact reason, quality and finishing of work is key and that is one of our core values. We quality control inspect each stage of the job and will ask for a signed hand off from you the customer also so that all are aligned and happy with the result.
Are you expensive compared to other contractors and building companies?
Difficult question to ask as we cant really say yes or no. what we do know (especially during this time of pressure in the world with covid) is that some companies will cut corners to appear cheaper but then end up costing you more money in the long run. We believe in transparency every step of the way and will explain what the costs wil be so you can diligently compare us with other contractors before making the decision.
Why do people chose PHS over other companies?
We believe our western style of managing projects combined with the level of service is why people chose PHS. Having worked in Thailand for nearly 20 years and speaking the language we have the ability to communicate with the Thais to get the job done to western standards. Not only this but our pricing is very fair, our selection of sub-contractors is at a high standard and on all jobs we have western supervision to ensure site is clean, tidy and working efficiently.
