“This was and is one of the first projects assigned to me as RMS. I am only in my third month with Premier Guarantee and this is the first time the newly formed client First Endeavour Llp has used PG. The project is social housing comprising of 63 units in three blocks, a terraced two storey and two blocks of four-storey apartments. The project is at an early stage with all foundations poured, substructure to DPC level with common area steelwork under construction.
"The Site Manager, Kris Paniczek, is very cooperative and has a good team of sub-contractors who work well and as a team The standard of workmanship so far easily meets requirements.
"Project Manager Eric Studzinski is also very cooperative and always on hand if required. This may be the first contract between Premier Guarantee and First Endeavour but I'm sure it won't be the last.”
“I am very pleased Gordon has chosen our Gordon Park Project as one of his favourites.
“Since the beginning of this development, it has been a pleasure working with Gordon. His professionalism and positive attitude towards work is a big asset for our project. The communication between Gordon and the Site Team has been excellent so far. The Site Team has been fully briefed on how the inspection system works and the ‘’key stage’’ inspections that must be undertaken. During site inspections Gordon has been very proactive in making sure our specifications and work quality meet or exceed required standards.
“The project, located in the busy Westhill area, is a mixture of terraced houses and apartment blocks. This development has been very interesting, challenging, and enjoyable from the very start. Our focus and priority is to deliver project safely and to high quality standards to meet or exceed client’s expectations. To achieve this, we thrive to build up excellent relationship with everyone involved in the project.
"So far, the communication with Site Inspectors, subcontractors, our Design and Engineering Team and Health and Safety department has been great. Witnessing progress on site due to everyone’s positive involvement is something to be very proud of.”
