I would like to pass on our thanks to you and your team for their efforts in completing our concrete frame. You were able to better your agreed programme and worked tirelessly to maximise production rates. You worked safely and efficiently at all times and were a pleasure to manage. The weekly co-ordination meetings proved particularly beneficial and ensured good two way communication. Paul worked particularly hard and drove the programme by allotting the labour where it was most productive to enable continuity for all of your men. Paul worked very well with all of our team and the other contractors on site to enable our other trades to be commence there works and be hard up behind you. The efforts you have made to complete your works have given us a good opportunity to complete the main contract on or ahead of time. I would be grateful if you could pass on my thanks to Paul and the rest of your team as I was not able to speak to them all directly as the left.

TVC are a very professional concrete frame contractor who successfully completed the above project on time, on budget, to a very high quality standard and to a very high safety standard. TVC are a very proactive contractor. This was very apparent by their willingness to help the project when the original ground works contractor failed and TVC took over the structural elements involved with the substructure works. Above all, their safety standards are fantastic. Their procedures are completely aligned with the Willmott Dixon procedures which are very stringent and demanding. In addition, TVC often provide innovation that goes over and above what we would normally expect from a concrete frame sub contractor.
