I have built a very strong relationship with Bluecrow over the last 5 years, working on a number of Japan Centre and Shoryu projects together. Most recently we completed Icihiba, Europe's largest Japanese foodhall in Westfield London. Bluecrow were brought on board very late in the project, and they quite literally had to hit the ground running; in my experience something few fitout companies could do successfully. We met with a number of significant challenges on site but each time Bluecrow overcame them, with all build teams involved working closely and effectively together as one team. The end result was an outstanding build, that proved cost effective and delivered on time.
Bluecrow have a very good bunch of guys and girls working for them. This makes it a pleasure to work with them, no matter who is project managing, site managing etc. They really do care about their clients, and this is for me what singles them out.
Our first collaboration with Bluecrow saw the conversion of a tired office space into a bright and airy working environment. This unusual project, for a software company designing products for the restaurant industry, merged workspace and hospitality typologies; a full commercial kitchen enables the in-house chef to cook lunch for the 30 strong team daily. The Bluecrow team have been excellent to work with from tender to completion and there has been a shared ambition for the highest quality in every aspect of the project. We are extremely happy with the resultant fit-out and look forward to working together again in the near future.
I have worked with Bluecrow on our last 6 projects and from an Operators perceptive they are a joy to work with. They are on budget and most importantly for me on time. I have built a relationship with some of the team and the are always on hand to help with anything. I can only say that my experience of Bluecrow is very positive and will not hesitate to use their services again. Looking forward to starting project number 7 with George and the team. The Old Street site and our other units have a sense of real quality in the finish.
We have worked with Bluecrow on both our restaurants, The Palomar in 2014 and The Barbary in 2016. They have been professional, courteous and fair on every level. The work as always been on point and rectified if anything is ever remiss. But more than that, we like and respect them all enormously on a personal level and are really a joy to work alongside.
We worked with Bluecrow Projects on the fit-out of our 2nd restaurant on Brick Lane during the summer of 2016. Working the Bluecrow Projects was a pleasure. They quoted and carried out the work both efficiently and professionally. The build was relatively stress free and came in on time and budget. I would have no hesitation to work with them again and in recommending Bluecrow Projects to other clients.
Bluecrow recently undertook a 12 week project building the first of our restaurants. A tight timescale and budget put everyone under pressure. The project was headed by Site Director Jon Cordell who not only delivered the job on time and on budget but did so with an exemplary attitude and work ethic. I am aware I am a demanding client with exacting precision required across the build. Jon utilised his team brilliantly both in this efficiencies with labour and materials. The Bluecrow team have a clear focus on quality and Jon, as the accountable person, was always on site to manage and direct. This has not always been my experience with contractors. A friendly and conscientious bunch they were tolerant and accommodating when we traipsed everyone from investors to suppliers through their site, sticklers for health and safety they got their revenge by making us wear all the unattractive site 'gear'. As stressful and costly as a build is Jon made it a pleasurable experience. We could not have delivered beyond all expectations without him and his fantastic team. I cannot recommend him and Bluecrow highly enough.
We had the pleasure of working with the Bluecrow team on the last four of our restaurant projects. They are very professional and well organised, as one would expect, and this is reflected in their time management and high quality of craftsmanship. They have a can do attitude, work hard to get things right for the client, and just as importantly go the extra mile to build good relationships with landlords. They are innovative when it comes to on-site problem solving, and with this hands on approach to ensuring design details are refined, the finishes and overall fitout build is of a very high standard. We would highly recommend Bluecrow to any restaurateur.
As designers we have come to realise the importance of working with good contractors who understand the vision of the project and can deliver a product to a high standard. Blacksheep working with Bluecrow have successfully delivered 2 restaurant projects that not only look good but have a certain quality that can only be felt. We look forward to working with Bluecrow in the future.
Dear Simon, Last night Bill and Granger and Co won the Conde Nast Traveller Innovation and Design Award in the category Gourmet. We shared the award with the Delaunay. We are completely thrilled about this! Thank you for yours and your team’s work on the restaurant. This is a wonderful validation of our efforts to create a fabulous restaurant! Congratulations, and thank you enormously for your commitment to and hard work creating Granger and Co.
I have always been impressed with the ‘Can Do’ attitude that the team at Bluecrow Projects bring to often complex and sometimes challenging projects. They have the depth of knowledge and experience of shopfitting which helps deliver projects on time and to budget.’ I would not hesitate in recommending them.
This is a big thank you for everything you have done to help take The Palomar from paper to reality. All the meetings, plans, discussions and final execution. None of it would have been possible without your professionalism and help.

I contracted Bluecrow Projects after talking to several references and because they came highly recommended by my design/architect firm. The trigger of my decision was the personal approach of Simon and John (the partners) towards their projects. Simon took care personally of my project and this kept me at ease. Bluecrow does not compromise on quality. They have very high standards on everything they do and they are committed to doing the right thing. They delivered timely, and although budget is a tough matter in a big project, they try their best to stick to it.
The fit out went very smoothly and the client was very pleased, both myself and my director were very impressed by your work and I will definitely think of you for future projects.
I am very pleased to recommend Bluecrow Projects after personal experience. A professional company which strives to perform and deliver. Throughout my project, there were many difficult occasions when I was pleased with my decision to employ a quality builder who could handle very complicated and challenging technical issues. I would go with Bluecrow again because I am used to having peace of mind and working with honest people who can deliver my requirements.
