Management Comments:

This was an extremely ambitious project undertaken by PME, with the involvement of a number of principal contractors, client sub-contractors and PME sub-contractors across numerous floors of the same building whilst maintaining a very short project schedule in order for the client to move in on time. The commitment shown by the staff of PME to the project became evident during the final walk down prior to completion with the quality delivered shown to be exceptional. We are delighted to have been involved in delivering our first IT future proof infrastructure and look forward to helping other clients achieve the same ambitious goals.
