"We used the SIPS system in the construction of Highgate in 2008, working with Thomas Carter Ltd.
We established an excellent working relationship together and for a professional, easy, quick and clean framework method, we highly recommend Thomas Carter Ltd to supply you with and erect the SIPS system.
We would have no hesitation in using Thomas Carter Ltd again in the future should the opportunity arise."

"We're very pleased with the SIP construction- it's worked out exactly as we'd hoped it would, giving us a warm and spacious room- and would certainly recommend anyone else in our position to consider building with SIPs and working with Thomas Carter."
"I have to say I don't think we could have achieved certification without your expertise, it was our first one and your workmanship was great!"

"I am delighted with my new homeopathy clinic. It is, light and airy with excellent insulation which keeps it cool in summer and warm throughout the winter. All my clients remark on its pleasant and calming atmosphere, and for me it is a very therapeutic place in which to work. The workmanship is superb, and the materials and finish are of a high quality throughout.
Gerry and his team are hard-working, highly skilled, and a pleasure to have around. The whole project was handled in a very helpful and considerate way that enabled my business to be carried on without interruption.
Despite being a very modern design, the building sits well in the landscape because of the natural materials used in its construction, and it has received many complimentary comments from neighbours and visitors alike.
I would be happy to recommend Thomas Carter to anyone considering a project of this nature, and would welcome a visit from anyone who would like to see the building for themselves, or discuss the experience of having it built.
Thank you again to all at Thomas Carter!"
"The whole process was carried out very efficiently and expertly even with basic plans that were provided by the client. The Kingspan Sips system is extremely fast to construct which produces a very energy efficient building. We hope to use this system in many more of floating homes in the future."
"...quite apart from their commendable efficiency in process, and determination to meet deadlines, TC have a more valuable ability, they know how to engage fellow building contractors who lack SIPS experience, bringing together all necessary parts until successful completion: sceptics converted..."
We successfully completed a project in Eastbourne in January 2008 (a pair of semi-detached houses) for the first time using Thomas Carter Ltd and the SIP System. We were impressed with the speed of build and the quality of the finished units, the high levels of insulation were a major benefit when marketing the development.
We have, therefore, continued to use Thomas Carter Ltd on a subsequent development of 9 units in Heathfield, again completed in record time.
The process of working with Thomas Carter Ltd was very efficient and the benefits of developing drawings & structural engineering in the office and then the offsite manufacture of the SIP structural components, enabled the watertight shells to be erected on site in an 8 week period.
"We would definitely contact Thomas Carter Ltd to tender for future developments where the use of SIP is required."
“Thomas Carter provided us with a SIPS solution on the new teaching block development at Durrington High School in Worthing. They were very proactive in their approach, ensuring the design detailing was efficiently progressed from the start. We had a very tight build programme to achieve, and a very challenging lead in time from order placement to installation commencing on site, Thomas Carter worked collaboratively with us to ensure not only the required on site date was achieved but improved with the materials being available to commence 1 week earlier! The installation on site was completed to a high standard, with on site solutions to problems being swiftly proposed and dealt with by their operatives on site. We look forward to the next opportunity to work Thomas Carter, and would absolutely recommend them to others.”
"I would like to take this opportunity to say a Huge Thanks to you and the whole team and especially Gerry, for all the patient guidance and help along the way to getting this extension built. Although there were several bumps in the road on this project, Thomas Carter, kept steady support and acted as an assured partner which I really appreciated. I am really happy with it and send my thanks to you and all your team!"
"Working with Thomas Carter and using SIPs to construct a first floor over an existing ground floor extension made an awkward project into a simple one.
Once we had prepared the first floor, the crew from Thomas Carter arrived on a Monday morning and the second floor was up with trusses in place by Tuesday lunchtime. Amazingly quick and easy to assemble.
Internally the trades were able to get on and fixing to timber made their job so much easier. Externally we chose to use cladding fixed to battens. All done in a couple of days!
All in all - a great way to build."
Facing the challenge of building our dream home was expecially daunting for us being new to the world of self-building.
We wanted a low maintenance, energy efficient eco house, designed to our own specificaiton.
After much deliberation, we chose Thomas Carter, a Kingspan delivery partner, as SIPs was our preferred route to construction.
Thomas Carter were very easy to work with and totally understood our requirements from the outset. They supported us through the construction process, providing advice and guidance on all manor of issues, which was often lacking when dealing with the other professionals and trades employed on our project. We are completely thrilled with the result and would wholeheartedly, recommend Thomas Carter to anyone embarking on a similar project.
We really love living here, the house is so light and airy, and has the relaxed easy living vibe we were after.
