“A2O gave extremely good advice and excellent support on the continuous detailed design, and were very helpful with the value engineering of the cladding package whilst maintaining a high quality of design. A2O proposd products and initatives that were both beneficial to the contractor but and met the client’s aesthetical needs. An example being the change of the traditional brickwork on the entrance tower, to a cladding brick slips system which worked extremely well and benefitted the programme.

Their technical knowledge and detailed drawings were of the highest standard that I experienced from a Cladding Subcontractor. Their site team and installers worked very well with the main contractor and the other subcontractors.

Regarding A2O, they would be the first Cladding Subcontractor I would recommend going forward on all future construction jobs.”

“A2O Group was appointed to install the cladding and finishing’s to the building envelope throughout the build at the Tesco in Yate, Bristol. The Yate project was very compact, had a construction programme of 25 weeks, and was within a live shopping centre.

In my opinion A2O excelled on the Yate project, given the constraints. Time after time they delivered areas as a team with minimal disruption to the remainder of the site. They have impressive drive from project conception through to final delivery. They attended the collaborative planning session for the project and were proactive and committed enough to deliver to the compact programme. Their health and safety practices were excellent; from weekly inspections and PPE, to carrying out the task to their specific risk assessments.

Tim and his team always look beyond the boundaries to resolve issues. They organise themselves efficiently and ensure all stakeholders are communicated to. A2O Group seems to do their best to meet the client’s requirements time after time with a ‘can do!’ attitude.”

“A2O were involved in the Minehead project from an early stage further to successfully winning a competitive subcontractor tender. The early subcontractor involvement during the detailed design stage was a benefit of the D&B procurement route. The project was driven with a focus on Value Engineering and speed of construction whilst maintaining a high level of quality. A2O were of great assistance in developing a solution for the shell construction. The appearance of the completed superstore reflects both good quality and sensible economy.”

“We were very happy with A2O’s proactive approach and hard work pre-delivery of project.”
