"Not only is the work beautifully executed but your approach to the project and particularly the skill, the long hours and the inspirational commitment demonstrated were noted and very much appreciated by all involved with the project. Such service and commitment is rare nowadays and often go unappreciated. I consider that we have been fortunate both on this project and on earlier works, to have had Armatile on our side".
