On behalf of Ballarat Community Health, I would like to thank you for your commitment to delivering the new Primary Care Facility at Lucas.

This project was always going to present a challenge given the tight timeframes, impacted further by the wet and windy weather, and I put its success down to the collaborative approach Nicholson’s adopted throughout. I have found every member of the Nicholson team extremely professional with a focus on client satisfaction and completing the project on time and in a safe manner.

On the occasions when construction issues arose Nicholson’s staff worked closely with the consultant team to deliver the desired outcome with minimal impact on the project momentum. Your consideration to client needs was exemplary allowing site to close early on several occasions for stakeholder inspections and media events. It has been a pleasure working with you and your team in delivering a fantastic new facility for Ballarat Community Health and the broader community.

I again thank you both and look forward to working with you into the future.

“On behalf of the City of Ballarat Project Team, I would like to say thank you for all your efforts and contributions on the Art Gallery of Ballarat Annexe.

We are very aware of the additional hours, RDO’s and weekends that you and your team have worked in order to complete the project and this has certainly been noted. When the project program had to be altered, you always made every effort to make up time and you were always up front when it was not possible. Any issues with the project were brought to the project team’s attention as quickly as appropriate and a collaborative approach to the project was always taken. It was very apparent that you were aware who your client was.

Your honesty in relation to all aspects of the project has been very much appreciated and it has made dealing with you an absolute pleasure. I hope that I have the opportunity to work with you again in the future.

I want you to know that your efforts were not disregarded. Please accept my heartfelt commendation and appreciation for your hard work.”

“Please accept my thanks for the excellent way in which your company managed and constructed our new school.

The way in which Mark Molloy, as site foreman, managed the construction site was particularly outstanding. That the project came in ahead of time and with such high construction standards is testament to Mark’s leadership, dedication and skill. We are particularly please with the way in which your company used local contractors and was respectful of our wishes and the local community. There was good communication and a strong relationship between all parties at all times and this added greatly to the successful outcome.

Today we have what our school community is proud to describe as a beautiful and very modern eduction facility which will serve the children of Dennington and district for many years to come.

As we look to the future and the next stage of our school building program, we look forward to working closely with you again.”
