Alan assisted GR Engineering with all aspects of our scope of works at Deflector. His professionalism and attention to detail throughout was always apparent. He strives to go beyond what was expected and this has had a positive impact on the project for which we are grateful to him. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending his work for the future and we will most certainly be utilising his services, great job, and fantastic team.

FormAction engaged Alan to cover our own surveyor’s R+R as he had been recommended onsite. He had an immediate positive impact with regard to productivity and always seem to be one step ahead of the crew which from my point of view meant he didn’t need to be managed. He displayed a clear understanding of the civil aspect of the works and we will be using his services again.
