"Now that we have completed the project at IM Properties I would like to give my thanks to yourself and all your team for all the hard work they have put in to bring this project to a successful completion. 
This was not the easiest project with many additions along the way however your team stuck to the task and produced an excellent installation. We now have a very happy Client who are very pleased with their new building. 
Special thanks to your site team excellently managed by Anthony Bold (BB Foreman) with great support from Jason Smith (BB Electrician). They were both very professional in leading a helpful, enthusiastic and dedicated workforce. It was also refreshing to see several apprentices being trained on the project which can only be good for your company's future. 
Look forward to working with you on our next project."
