David Thompson, Head of Customer Services, said:

“This partner went above and beyond getting involved early doors to get the design right. In fact it was 2 years before commencing. They made sure they understood the product and the full requirements from our specification. 

The whole process from start to finish felt like their people really cared on a personal basis. It was like it was their own company. They all knew exactly what they were doing and installed very accurately with great onsite collaboration and a really outstanding product.”

 

Roger Forsdyke, MD of Willmott Dixon Construction London & South, said:

“A2O has been fantastic for us.  For me, Green School for Boys is just an exemplar piece of partnering.

You know the quality of what you’ve achieved, the amount of engagement you put into the job. Your first engagement was two years before we started which is quite a remarkable investment… that’s what makes two-stage partnering work so well because we can get the product sorted out before we start.

And then when your team did get on site, you were truly collaborative. You work with all the other partners exceptionally well and allowed us to finish that job early, considerably early.

So not only have we got an excellent product, we’ve got a delighted customer, because of all of those things. So congratulations for all the effort!”

Congratulations to Billy Carter too for his nomination for the People Award.
