I could not speak more highly of DBR and the team. I have personally used their consultancy / contracting services on over 20 sites over the years. They were / are our go to remediation contractor. Daf and the team provide bespoke value engineering to suit the client in a cost effective and transparent way. This is unusual in the remediation world. Daf is honest, professional and highly intelligent at what he does.
