Site quality procedures are designed to ensure the project meets plans and specifications, as well as the client’s approval and satisfaction.

I have put you guys forward to the directors as my MVP subbie for the year, they like to know who our good subbies are and you guys were my number 1. "
"The project went very well and I thank for your efforts in completing on time. The guys were great on-site and I will have no hesitation with approaching you for further works in the future."
"I just wanted to send a quick email to thank you all on behalf of the Kane team, for your amazing effort over the last month to help us get back on track. You all went well and truly above and beyond to drop everything and jump into action to get the remediation works completed as quickly as possible, and I wanted you to know that we appreciate all your hard work. I know it’s corny to say but we couldn’t have done it without you and your dedication to getting the job done. It is extremely exciting that we are finally back on track and working on contract works again, and I look forward to working with you all over the next few months to get the job finished."

"Thank you for your good work on the boating hub. The building has come up well. I will be promoting SC to be on tender lists for future tenders within LL. Thanks for your work once again. I’ll be in touch in a few weeks when we are final stating your package on the boating hub."
“After searching for a suitable steel fabricator, I was extremely happy to meet Maria from Structural Challenge. The working relationship was particularly important because the design process was so innovative. Maria’s support and indeed ongoing encouragement was invaluable. On the day the steel frame arrived, it went up like magic. That’s when you know a fabricator gets the technical detail and the craftsmanship is right.”
