“We were pleased with the Design service and the competitive quotation for the street lighting installation” – John Fricker, Cotswold Homes Ltd

“I think that all authorities should be made to provide a service where developers can pay for street lighting designs. Most are now switching to using external companies (e.g. Phillips), and it leads to an inefficient layout and also does not always include the authority’s latest specification. In order to provide our customers with the exact information on the surroundings of their new home, this is an essential requirement. This is an excellent, flexible service and well worth the fee.” – Developer

“An excellent service at short notice. I would not hesitate to recommend SGC’s Street Lighting Department to anyone.” – Civil Engineering Contractor
