  • I would like to extend my sincere thanks for the efforts of you and your team in delivering the Central Pedestrian Spine project on budget and ahead of schedule. The Spine project was very demanding and required the careful attention of all your staff and contractors, as the site and program ran through the University’s busiest period. Working around this schedule to minimise the disruption required the careful attention of all your staff and contractors.  I would not hesitate to appoint Ace again.

  • Thank you for the hard work and attention to detail you and your team showed to the landscaping works. We appreciate the technicality of the site and how difficult and at times slow going it was. We could not have asked for a better outcome and team to work through the various challenges the trees and heritage buildings created. I hope we are able to collaborate with ACE again soon and can actually enjoy the Wesley precinct someday.
