We want our partners to be the best in their field. We absolutely believe that Doig and Smith is the best in their field and that’s why we want to work with them. The best for us means that they work as an equal partner with us in the project. Doig and Smith have a huge pool of knowledge that they bring to our projects. They are there to guide us through the challenges and we absolutely trust them to do that.
We really like the consistency that we get with the same partner and staff taking the project from start to finish. We also really value the availability of the partners and that we know that they will get back to us as soon as possible if they are not immediately available.
You always feel that your project is their main priority even although they have much bigger and more complex projects to deal with that’s never the feeling you get.
The honesty that Doig and Smith bring to the project is key for us. We also know that contractors respect Doig and Smith so they tend not to “try things on. We also really value the flexibility of approach in that there is never a problem with early morning meetings or meetings at the weekend. There is an obvious honesty in advice that we are given and we always know where we sit in terms of the costs and time frame for the project.
