Testimonials

“I cannot speak highly enough of my beautiful home”


Rivergreen built a beautiful home for me almost 20 years ago and I have no regrets in my decision. I quickly realised that this award winning company focuses on small exclusive sites using quality products and a highly trained, professional workforce to develop individual, beautiful homes to an exceptionally high standard. From the beginning of the process everyone at Rivergreen was extremely supportive, helpful and knowledgeable. I was kept informed of each step of the build, an enjoyable and educational experience for me. I enjoyed many opportunities for my home to reflect my style and taste. I cannot speak highly enough of both my beautiful home and all involved with Rivergreen as a company.

“Our facilities at Queens Meadow certainly meet this brief.”


Hart Biologicals develop and manufacture specialist medical devices. A significant proportion of our clients are international, and as such, it was important that we housed our company in facilities that gave these clients confidence that we were a highly professional company with facilities that meet the needs of an international organisation. Our facilities at the Queens Meadow Business Park in Hartlepool certainly meet this brief.

Alby Pattison, Managing Director, Hart Biologicals

“15 years later we are still enjoying our amazing home”


In 1997 we learnt of the possible development of Cleadon Pumping Station, 6 years later Rivergreen honoured a promise made at that time and we chose one of the four houses available. 15 years later we are still enjoying our amazing home.

“The ambience and quality of the space spoke volumes”


Ikon has always occupied a very special scientific niche in the oil industry with strong links into academia. As business grew we needed an office that befitted our dreams. The ambience and quality of the space spoke volumes for how we perceived our place in business. Visitors stepping into the Ikon office in Rivergreen always expressed emotions of wow, can I move here and why isn’t our office like this.

Steve Jenkins, Vice President, Ikon Science

“We’d found the
right home”


“I knew we’d found the right home in Northumberland when Susie said “I want one!” as soon as we walked through the door of the show house at Rivergreen in Amble. The quality of the design and construction was way ahead of anything else we’d seen, made the most of the site and views, and was surprisingly good value for money. We spent six very happy years there, and only left when we needed to move south to be closer to the family.”
