  • Your individual and collective efforts and application to task are laudable

  • Proactivity in identifying potential issues and proposing workable solutions, in particular the size of the smoke exhaust system that Rapid determined was required to meet the BCA and conditions of consent and overcome the very significant practical and physical constraints associated with this – all of which had not been fully captured by the design consultants that had prepared the conceptual design as included in Rapid’s contract documents … Rapid’s operatives were always highly professional, courteous, helpful and non-adversarial in their approach and the standard of their workmanship was to be commended.

  • Rapid’s personnel were outstanding in managing the sub-contractor’s work and communication with council staff was of high standard.

  • Rapid has provided an excellent team who built good working relationships. Rapid dealt with difficult issues including ground conditions and wet weather. A very satisfactory delivery has led to an excellent outcome.

  • staff dedication to the job was exceptional, working cooperatively and closely with Council staff, Consultants and pool management. There were no variations from Rapid and no contractual disputes.

  • technical challenges were approached in a solutions-focused and cooperative manner by both the Site and Project Manager. Rapid’s operatives were always courteous, helpful and non-adversarial in their approach.

  • Rapid Construction staff were very co-operative and worked well with the emergency department and ensured they had a site that functioned well for WH&S and Environmental Management.

  • Rapid delivered the new Amenities Building to a very high standard. The works were executed with care and good attention to detail. The Project Team demonstrated a thorough understanding of the design from day one, and worked extremely well with both the Project Managers and building architect. Any problems with the design were flagged early, and variations to the contract were fair and raised in a timely manner. Staff were courteous at all times, and always amenable to design changes or requests for additional work by Council. The work site was kept safe and tidy. Overall, Rapid has delivered a new high quality building asset on behalf of Council, with no significant delays or contractual issues. Council would be happy to work with Rapid again on this basis.

  • cooperative and importantly non-adversarial conduct

  • for assistance with structural and aesthetic advice, for diligence in keeping work and public areas safe, clean and tidy and for politeness and respect towards staff and clientele.
