What do our clients have to say?

Working with Pennington Choices to deliver our Fire Risk Assessment inspection programme has been a really positive experience for both our customers and ourselves. The team at Pennington Choices has worked really hard to deliver a high quality service, completing the programme on time and on budget. They have offered professional advice throughout and provided a high level of assurance that we are keeping our customers safe in their homes.

Assurance and Compliance Manager, Leeds and Yorkshire Housing Association (LYHA)

Pennington Choices provided us with 240 EPCs within the required timescales and to a high standard. Due to the successful programme, we contracted them to provide further EPCs and Stock Condition Surveys. We highly recommend them. Pennington Choices has been undertaking EPCs for Derwent Living.

Planning and Asset Assurance Manager, Derwent Living

Sanctuary Scotland enlisted the services of Pennington Choices to help us with compliance with EESSH (Energy Efficiency Standard for Social Housing). Not only has the quality of the surveys been excellent, but the turnaround from survey request to survey completion is always quick. Also in being able to access the property data and run detailed reports through their client portal, I couldn’t recommend Pennington Choices highly enough.

Asser Surveyor, Sanctuary Group

At West Leeds Family Practice, we have had Pennington Choices deliver close to an one million pound project to provide a health building. It has been a complex project with lots of difficulties which have all been resolved with thorough and careful Project Management. Through Pennington Choices we have had a thoroughly professional and responsive Professional Management team which has reduced the risk and worry when dealing with a big scheme. The Covid-19 pandemic had been a huge challenge to the delivery of the scheme, however, Pennington Choices has delivered the project to budget, and very close to the time scale proposed. We would recommend their services to others

Clinical Director, West Leeds Family Practice

We appointed Pennington Choices to undertake a Compliance Health Check to help us understand any gaps in our management of property compliance. Thanks to their efforts they have helped to shift our organisational culture to ensure we prioritise property compliance and tenant safety, and as a result of clear communication and reporting from the Consultancy Team, we are now in a much better compliance position than we were beforehand. I would highly recommend Pennington Choices to any other organisations looking to improve its compliance position.

Chief Executive Officer, Wirral Methodist Housing Association

We have been working with Pennington Choices for the past two years. The Pennington Choices team are always professional, punctual and knowledgeable about the various subject matter. Their approach to achieving the objective is co-operative, straight forward and informative, enabling us to learn from the wealth of experience and knowledge as part of the process.
