Dear Derry,

I would like to thank you for being on the approved contractor list with Michael Graham Lettings.

To date, you have not had to return to a property because of ineffective work and we have received many commendations from our tenants and landlords for your work and I would highly recommend you to other organisations.

We had Derry Shaw (ShawCan Energy Solutions) do several, varied jobs for us here at Bletchley Park. All works completed by Derry were of high quality and I was extremely happy with the results. Derry was very organized and very helpful when needing jobs completed quickly. As a Museum a lot of our work had to be done out of hours which was no problem for him. I found Derry very friendly and easy to do business with.

Sincerely, Dale Lazenby Maintenance OfficerBletchley Park Trust


We required a full re-wiring of our two-bed property and employed Derry of Shawcan Energy Solutions. He was great! He was able to work round us as we were unable to vacate the property, his experience and expertise in the building trade meant the work was top notch and despite the obvious mess rewiring a house was going to create with having to lift floorboards and cutting channels in to walls etc.

Derry was impeccably tidy, kept you informed and to his word and generally found him great to deal with.

I would definitely recommend Shawcan Energy Solutions!!

I contacted Derry at Shawcan Energy Solutions to do some work ready for the arrival of my new dog grooming pod. I needed the external electrics to be installed, Derry has done a fantastic job. All work was carried out to a very high standard. I’m really impressed with the quality of service and would not hesitate to recommend Shawcan Energy Solutions.

My wife and I chose Derry to complete our en-suite and cloakroom renovations. The works especially with the en-suite were quite extensive. However, this proved not to be a problem for Derry to undertake.

Right from the beginning, Derry was a massive help for us. He has got extensive knowledge and experience within the building trade and guided us both throughout the process. He measured up, helped us to order all required products and also planned the best way to complete each room.

Derry has got a very good eye for detail and was able to advise us on the best use of materials to make our bathrooms look amazing. He worked very hard and alone and has completed a fantastic job. Both my wife and I are very happy with the finished rooms. We highly recommend Derry to anyone who is considering any type of house renovation. His workmanship is absolutely amazing. He is also a very helpful, hardworking and likeable guy.

I was very pleased with the work Shawcan did in re-pointing my ageing patio. It looked as good as new when they had finished.
