ZF TRW Cirencester

“We have much pleasure in providing this reference in support of the above company.

Having experienced firsthand the fantastic achievements provided by ACMS during a demanding and difficult installation of Heating, Ventilation and new Air Conditioning system.

These works were carried out in an extremely professional manner with fully qualified, competent and very knowledgeable staff. This was evident from management level through to the installation engineers.

Working under difficult live working office conditions and also unsocial night shift work patterns this substantial project was carried out and completed with the highest levels of skills, attention to detail and commitment.

It must also be said that the sometimes difficult programme was always achieved and completed within the projectd timescale together with all the supporting documented evidence including O &M manuals.

In essence this was an excellent project carried out by a skilled company. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending their services to any potential client of ACMS and would be most happy to engage their services for any future works we have were at ZF TRW”

Project Manager, Havelock Europa

“Following yesterday’s handover at Lloyds Shotton, I would like to take the opportunity to thank you all for your efforts in making this project a great success. The project achieved the FLAWLESS benchmark and we received excellent feedback from the branch manager, regional director as well as our client’s property team.

Can you please pass my thanks on to your site teams and I look forward to working with you all in future projects. ”

Business Operations Manager, Lobster Pictures

“I just wanted to thank you and your team for such a great installation!

I know it was a difficult retrofit but Adam did fantastic work and the guys who came in over the weekend must have worked really hard.

The quality of the installation is fantastic, incredibly neat and tidy! And we were all impressed with how little disruption was caused during the week and how tidily the work was done.

Please pass on my thanks to Adam and the team.”

“From the outset of the project Steve Walker (Contracts Director) gave an exceptional level of service which continued throughout the project. He actively contributed to value engineering solutions which the client greatly appreciated. The project was run efficiently and on programme. ACMS had a very good understanding of the project specifications and requirements which resulted in minimal issues throughout. I would have no hesitation in recommending ACMS for future projects.”

“ ACMS performed exceptionally well on this project. Major structural issues were identified with the existing brick flue when lining was due to take place and they managed the extra works needed exceptionally well. I have always been impressed with this company having known and worked with them on projects for over 30 years. ”

Project Manager, Kier Construction

“ACMS were very conscientious about their work on site. They were keen to help and input into resolving day to day issues. They were able to deliver a significant amount of work in a very tight timescale to a very good standard”

Lloyds TSB Scotland, Aberdeen

“I would like to take this opportunity to express on behalf of Lloyds TSB Scotland and Group Property our appreciation and satisfaction with the overall engagement and delivery of the above project. The manner in which you and your management team combined with the office based team to support the site operation was excellent.

The site team you established demonstrated a most professional approach to the daily/ hourly challenges that the site was throwing at everyone, a key factor was the simple approach taken to all problems: I have an issue here but here are the solutions and action taken.

Special thanks must be given to everyone who by working in extremely long and harsh conditions from November to March and combining with the other companies on the project, delivered for our colleagues in Aberdeen, a fantastic building for them to operate from and give the Bank’s customers a great place to meet and carry out their business.

Key areas to mention are as follows:

Leadership & Team Building

There was exceptional commitment and performance from ACMS leadership. The team showed the highest standards of professionalism and expertise, building and maintaining morale across a complex project and engaging with contractors and business stake-holders alike with ease.

Planning & Building Authorities

Creating strong working relationships which I know would be considered exceptional in the industry.

Supply Chain & Logistics

ACMS evidenced a strong capability to leverage their established, high-quality supply chain and extend that to identify and introduce new suppliers where necessary, getting all contractors to commit to the prject and an aggressive timetable at short notice.

They took responsibility for some critical relationships in tense circumstances (given previous contractor failure) and ensured that each continued to deliver as required, removing potential ‘show stoppers’ and minimising cost impacts.

Programming & Delivery

Throughout the project, ACMS showed a pragmatic approach, appreciating the standards and timescales to which we aspired, raising appropriate challenge. At no time, did we doubt the programme they put forward and we were fully informed of key issues – time, cost, compliance etc.

Indeed, to take over the Aberdeen project in the challenging circumstances and still deliver to time and quality is an extraordinary performance.
