“At the outset Brim’s diligence and understanding of the supply of building materials sheltered our project from steep cost increases that occurred during this period. They created a clear and identified path for the project for us. This allowed key purchasing decisions to be made early. Their purchasing and quantity surveying aspect to the project has been extremely accurate, forward thinking and professional.
We asked Brims to construct our veterinary referral hospital. This is a complex build requiring great contact and engagement with multiple technical and medical suppliers. From the very outset our Brims site manager, Dan Miller, took the lead. Dan made sure that crucial utilities upgrades to both water and power were completed. Dan also led technical Microsoft Team meetings with all of our specialist suppliers to engage the diverse Brims build team. Dan’s early organisation and energy allowed all parties to know what was required. It was crucial in pinning down all the aspects of the complex technical requirement.
Dan’s attitude and communication back to all parties has been exceptional. His clarity and commitment has been refreshing. He left no stone unturned. His attention to detail left no aspect overlooked. It is thanks to Dan Miller that we will be finishing our project on time and on budget. His accuracy over our 26-week programme has been extremely professional”.
