Warwick University, Arthur Vick Student Accommodation Refurbishment

Good afternoon all,

I wanted to write and personally thank you and your colleagues for the immense effort, dedication and effective communication that has allowed us to provide the University of Warwick with one of the most successful schemes delivered. The Client ( UoW Accommodation team) have made numerous positive comments on the completed scheme including ‘WOW’.

When I sat with my colleagues at JTL back in the spring, trying to convince ourselves we should tender, little did I actually appreciate the effort required to deliver almost £4m in 10 weeks across AV1 and AV2. I can honestly say that without the input from your teams on site it would have been significantly more difficult than it has been. With so much at stake, not least our reputation, I have spent a good amount of time on this site and seen the intensity, anxiousness, stress, hard work and latterly immense relief. Like my colleague Pete Woods, who’s team completed AV1, I am very proud of the end product and the fact we achieved this in 10 weeks.

At JTL the One Team ethos is the basis of everything we do. I’m pleased to say I witnessed this every visit I made, in very trying circumstances. So thank you for being a part of our journey, thanks for the efforts you and your teams put in, thanks for working with us in difficult surroundings and I very much look forward to securing future schemes where we can again come together and show what can be achieved. Please pass on the gratitude from our team to your supervisors and operatives.

JT Tomlinson
