What our clients say
Importantly for us in managing contract costs, TMCo's documentation is thorough and well coordinated, reducing any clients exposure to undue variation claims from contractors. TMCo have a pragmatic and commercial approach.
We have found the team to be knowledgeable, easy to work with and flexible, giving us the right solutions that work to enhance what we are trying to achieve architecturally.
The TM Consultants engineered solutions that were implemented meaning the operational costs are significantly less than they would have been otherwise – which is important as reducing opex is critical to the long term successful operation of hotels.
Coordination has been excellent as they are proactive with spatial requirements and practical about their design strategy. We enjoy the flexible nature of how they operate, being readily contactable and available during design and onsite.
We have strong mutual respect between our practices and we enjoy their responsiveness, professionalism and pragmatic approach to design. TMCo's documentation, that we produce schedules from, is clear, concise and easy to follow.
The building construction was made possible in part by the high quality of documentation delivered by Ignite and TM Consultants. Thorough in their coordination of documentation in design through BIM, giving attention to detail throughout the construction phase with clear and accurate consultant advice.
Their approach to design and quality has been excellent...their commitment to working with the client to ensure we are meeting cost parameters has been well managed...they understand functionality and buildability providing specific design input and advice.
Both the engineer’s fees and the cost of installation were below what we had allowed for which shows Mike Baker's commitment to making the project work well for us.
The TMCo structural and services team have provided consistent results in delivering projects on time and within the budget thresholds. We have found TM Consultants provide a pragmatic approach that is also practical and buildable, with due consideration given to client capex/opex issues along the way.
We use TM Consultants as a preferential supplier, and involve them early to ensure projects proceed smoothly. Their commitment to this process has been excellent, and invaluable in steering project direction...their approach to finding solutions for us is different than what we have experienced with other consultants. They do not simply provide a “solution”; rather they listen to us and our end users.
Goodman have continued to use TM in further service design work on other projects...this is due to their reliability, honesty and expertise together with their very personable and professional approach to the delivery of their work.
Goodman have found TM to be a highly pro-active and effective consultant to have part of their project team.
Very impressed with their approach, they have been highly professional to deal with. (Re the Electrical Engineers working on the new Bishopdale Library)
TMCo's knowledge and advice on mechanical and hydraulic systems was second to none and their ability to fit systems in houses without compromising the architecture was fantastic. I would recommend TMCo's involvement on any project where system performance and architectural aesthetics are important
We have found them to be friendly, approachable and readily contactable; and TMCo's ability to communicate often complex ideas in a simple and concise way has been excellent. We will continue to use TM Consultants for the professional and expert services they provide and the way they support us and have no hesitation in recommending the team at TM Consultants Ltd for other projects.
