What Our Clients Say
At Havi we strive to deliver a level of service that exceeds the expectations of our customers
Joe at Havi designed and installed a complicated lighting arrangement for our Village Hall and worked with his colleagues to upgrade the existing electrical systems in the hall in parallel with the new lighting installation.
The installation was delivered to time and to budget and has been universally praised by the attendees at Hall events. We did need a couple of subsequent minor tweaks and the team was available and attended to sort out the issues in a very timely manner. I have no reservation in recommending them for similar work in the future
