Princes Mead School, Winchester
''Acheson were appointed to build a new wing to a substantial listed building for an independent school. They were proactive and warm in early interviews, provided a comprehensive and affordable tender return, with their QS being particularly diligent in their cost plan, and subsequently completed the project to a very high standard to the delight of the project team. We appreciated top down involvement throughout from directors and contract management to the site manager. We found their attitude positive and team orientated, and they were keen to avoid combative contractual issues that can occur when complexities arise in the project. I would be very happy to work with them again on future projects''.

''We are delighted with what Acheson achieved as main contractor for the major refurbishment of the BMW dealership at North Oxford. The quality of the finished product is self-evident and the client is delighted. We have enjoyed an excellent working relationship with Acheson through what was a complicated project with the client remaining trading from the site throughout which was possible through phased handovers and working closely with the client to allow this to happen. Glenn Hilton the site manager was extremely proactive and enjoyed an excellent working relationship with the client team on site and Shane Mason was a pragmatic and approachable contact for us at Director level.''

I just thought I would drop you a note to thank Acheson and particularly Nigel and his team at Sherborne for the standard of finish in the Marketing Suite. It is finished to a very high standard, the majority of the snags are very minor and the interior and exterior area are excellent. Thanks again for all the efforts to get this area completed on time''.
