“The Trust’s decision to award the construction contract to Naylor Love paid dividends from the outset. Suppliers and sub-contractors were quick to tell us we had selected a company they would be enthusiastic about working with, and within just a matter of weeks we had benefitted from a robust  value engineering process across all elements of the project that helped reduce the overall project cost…

It needs to be stated that once on site the relationship moved to yet another level. Although we had our own project manager to act as client representative, trustees felt involved at all stages of the project through excellent communication and consultation. We are on record as saying never a cross word has been spoken in 2 years of dealings.

The finished building is simply outstanding. The attention to detail and quality has surpassed everyone’s expectations, even though we had high expectations to begin with.”

“The Naylor Love team have been a professional, dedicated and hard working team to have on site. Health and Safety is a priority. Management understand and work around the complexities that are part of working in the education sector.

The Naylor Love team communicated regularly and ensured the school’s perspective was included in planning. Deadlines were met even if it involved working through weekends. Work is of a high quality.”

“From the commencement of the project the Naylor Love team involved the Ravensdown representatives in a collaborative relationship, meeting for regular updates, taking the time to explain to laypeople what they were doing and always going above expectations to ensure that our needs were listened to and met. Any issues were highlighted early with resolution plans always in place, any external frustrations during the process were managed professionally and where approvals were required, these were appropriately gathered. Project plans were set, changes as required and the key goals were always front of mind.

I now proudly work in a building which as met all our expectations and has provided Ravensdown with a well-designed, professionally build showcase to ensure we are appropriately represented to our shareholders and the communities we serve.”

“We have always found Naylor Love completely honest, reliable and totally focused on a positive outcome for their client. The quality of construction and added preconstruction input they have provided has had significant impact on delivering the high standard of building so obvious in our centre. Their willingness to discuss any aspect of a project at any time to ensure our requirement are satisfied is quite exceptional.

In this regard, at all times we find their local manager, foremen and staff to be knowledgeable, helpful and courteous.

“From the very onset of Naylor Love winning the building tender at the beginning of 2009, the school has benefited from their expertise, craftsmanship, dedication and willingness to go the extra mile…Their advice and support services have been amazing. No issue, problem or educational design perspective has been too difficult to solve or work through…They always listened to the school’s needs and worked through a thorough process on how they could achieve this for us. A lot of times they have gone well beyond the call of duty to ensure that the school could achieve their vision…

All members of the Naylor Love team, from office administration, design, project coordinator, foreman and builders have worked tirelessly together to ensure that the school was built on time, within budget and that the dreams of the Board, staff and students were well and truly met. Their professionalism and collaboration and project coordination with the many trades that have been involved in this project has been amazing. We cannot rate them highly enough.”

“From the outset your team have displayed a sense of ownership of the project from the detailed design through to the completion of the construction. You willingly changed your construction programme to fit in with the Ministry’s requirement for a must open date of Term 1 of this year and have continued with subsequent construction stages within a very tight construction period. Your total team from architect, engineers and construction crews have displayed a sense of pride in the school…This team work has extended to working with the Establishment Board of Trustees and senior management in a positive way that has again been to the benefit of the school.”

“Our Project team enjoyed a congenial relationship with Naylor Love and we appreciated your advice, expertise and quality of work. You always listened to our needs and concerns and helped us to understand the concepts, when we weren’t sure of what was the best way forward, to attain the vision of the architects. You delivered what you promised – a project finished on time and to budget for which we are very grateful.”
