""Tonkin Schutz conceived a highly innovative design, which significantly enhanced the functional effectiveness of the facility, compared with previous architect’s master plan. The cost effectiveness of the project was significantly superior to competitor’s quotations. When the BER grants were tendered in 2009, without question we engaged TSDB as our preferred contractor, and can commend them enthusiastically.""
