“I would like to take this opportunity to write to you on behalf of Monarch Aircraft Engineering Ltd to pass on our thanks for the works completed by Barrie Beard Ltd during the construction of our new hangar facilities at Birmingham Airport. 
The finished product is a credit to your company and was made possible by the meticulous approach taken by the on-site team, supported valiantly by your office staff. 
During the build we faced many hurdles, all of which were addressed and resolved in a timely manner as not to impact on the overall quality of the building or the project schedule. 
Since the completion of the building, you have continued to support our operations, often at short notice demonstrating true commitment to customer service.”
