Craig  Core, Project  Manager at PBS Building, talked us through the experience he had working with the team at AMA on the Canterbury Towers project. Craig  explained  it  all  starts  with  good design and AMA offered superior design knowledge and experience right from the start.  Craig said, “AMA were great to  work  with,  nothing  was  too  much  trouble.  You could always pick up the phone to talk to a member if the project team from AMA, plus Sam was available at  any  time  if  we  needed  to  speak directly to him.  That level of communication from Senior Management can often be rare in this industry”.  Problems were  resolved  easily,  and  although Craig  said  there  had  been  no  major issues,  he  told  us  it  is  quite  common in  the  construction  industry  for  there to  be  teething  problems  at  the  start of  a  project  as  the  entire  team  from all  contracting  sectors  work  on  what is required.  He told us AMA dealt with any small issues as a matter of priority in order to keep the project flowing as it should. “I  was  extremely  happy  with  the workmanship,  professionalism  and care  from  AMA  and I am already to talking to them about future projects”, said Craig.
