I W Just a word of praise for the crew and the professionalism that they exhibited, also am really happy with tank design and structural work for tank frame and appearance. Job Well Done.

Well engineered structurally, great service, when modifications of the original design were required to fit our purpose for the tank, they were quickly addressed and installed properly. Ian McCormack, and Steve Boustead were excellent on site representatives of your company

I would like to pass on my appreciation to you, Russell and the team that worked on the Pettavel Basin project in the office and out on site.

I was involved in the first site kick off meeting where I met you and Russell and was impressed by the way in which you talked us through the works and answered any questions or concerns thrown at you from Agfab and BWA openly and honestly. From this point it become obvious that you and Russell knew what you were doing and that Fabtech had systems in place to manage the project and site works safely, professionally and efficiently.

I then witnesses a well oiled team of guys working under Russell’s direction, where he shared his understanding of the works with the less experienced guys. I went on leave just as the last cover panels were being installed and have returned to site with a covered basin with water in it and it looks fantastic.

The knowledge of the actual works, through to completion on site have been very impressive. It seemed that in every instance you guys had the answers and followed through with your intentions in a safe and professional manner.

Your guys worked when it was requested which had the best interest of the project in mind and that was certainly appreciated.

Please pass on my appreciation to your team.

"Thank you for your assistance and support during the trying time of laying liner at Leigh Creek. Working around the extreme heat, rain and in-experience of our prep work Colin and the team did a great job, I appreciate their persistence in getting the job done. Thank you again."

"Well, after my initial enquiries nearly two years ago and then conferring with the architects a year ago we have now completed the dam lining part of our project.  Your on site installation team led by Jason did a tremendous job.  The lads were flat out working with hardly a break and performed all the required QA testing.  My next door neighbour, architect/builder David Greave from Built Vision, already wants to install a liner in his dam and I am sure you will be hearing from him soon."

"The experience with Fabtech was excellent from the get go.  Darren Barletta turned around both the budget quote and the formal proposal in record time and then proceeded to keep me informed along each step of the way.  Our contracts and procurement people commended the negotiation process and we were very happy with the timeliness given our very tight timeframes.  The original site visit was also very reassuring as it was immediately evident that we were talking to someone who understand the job thoroughly and any commercial questions were quickly deferred back to Darren without any attempt to bluster through an answer which indicated an honesty that everyone on the Nyrstar side appreciated immediately.

The lead time on material was even shorter than promised and was delivered to site in a timely fashion.

Jakobus and his team have been highly commended by Andrew Byron (our construction manager) and Mick Arnold (Senior Environment Advisor and essentially the Nyrstar representative during this phase of the work).  They both praised the team for their work ethic, their compliance to our safety and hygiene requirements, their willingness to ask questions (e.g. where to put rubbish), and the quality of the work that was delivered.  Andrew Byron in particular noted this was one of the easiest jobs he’s ever worked on thanks mainly to working with such a professional contractor.  Mick was very impressed with the responsiveness of the team to feedback our safety requirements... It was also very greatly appreciated that the team battled on with some restrictive PPE requirements especially having to wear respirators the whole time.  It’s not comfortable and is generally hard for us to police but the Fabtech team just accepted it and were observed to be fully compliant every time Mick or Andrew were present.

We are delighted with the result.  Being underbudget and ahead of schedule was a fantastic result especially given the timelines we had to deal with and I just wish all my projects ran as smoothly."

To whom it may concern,

"I am writing this email to ‘voice’ my appreciation for works recently completed at Ruby Jo camp Effluent storage facility for Laing O’Rourke as  part of the QCLNG project. I had the pleasure of dealing with you supervisor Colin Morris for the duration of the works onsite and was very pleased with the level of professionalism and the proactive way in which defects were identified and the works  completed even as the weather became  an issue. I would definitely look to your company in the future to service the need for other similar works to be completed in the future as you QA was refreshingly comprehensive and the finish product was from my point of view one of the better ones I’ve seen."
