SANPRO TESTIMONIAL | MAY 2020

This is not our first project with Sanpro, nor is it my first testimonial for them.

Having built a relationship with Sanpro on projects in the $2m - $5m range spanning over a decade, we felt now was the right time to test them with something a little bigger.

We shortlisted Sanpro on the $15m Stage 3 project at St John Bosco College along with five other builders. Sanpro proved to be the successful tenderer for the works and have delivered two relatively complex school buildings to a high quality of finish within a very reasonable timeframe. This is despite a number of unforeseen challenges ranging from dewatering due to an abnormally high water table, to cladding changes, to copper cable thefts.

As per my previous testimonial, Sanpro’s ability to communicate promptly and effectively with all parties involved in the project meant that any potential issues were dealt with before they arose, and construction ran smoothly thanks to Allan’s on-site presence and knowledge. Sanpro have been fair and reasonable with variations and always provide the required supporting documentation up front.

The fact that this testimonial reads similarly to my last one is a testament to the fact that not much has changed at Sanpro which is a good thing.

I have no hesitation in recommending them for future projects of values up to and including $15m.

Sanpro Constructions have just completed the building of our new Church, in the Catholic Parish of Baldivis.
The project has been carried out according to schedule, and we are very happy with the quality of materials and workmanship.

The company has been easy to work to work with, and the site supervisors have been friendly, obliging and accessible.

It has been a pleasure working with Sanpro and I am happy to make this commendation.

Sanpro were the successful tender on our recent classroom addition project for the growing Primary needs on our Harrisdale campus.

We’d not worked with SanPro before. This being the first project and in addition very tight time frames made for a wary start. However our minds were set at ease right from the startup project meeting.

The professionalism, attention to detail were outstanding. Both Mark Barbaro and Dean Trezise were key to the project scheduling and logistics.

Their experience and even more so their willingness and flexibility to work with us as the project unfolded was highly appreciated. In fact I can’t speak highly enough of the all round positive experience in working with SanPro.

And to top things off, the new classroom was delivered ahead of schedule and spot on construction budget.So, would I work with SanPro on similar or even more complex building projects in future? My answer is – Absolutely.

Business Manager – Carey Baptist College.
Dear Mark, We are pleased to provide the following reference for your work on the above-mentioned project.

TRCB worked with Sanpro on Stage 2B of Mundaring Christian College between January and November 2020 and found Mark Barbaro (Contract Administration) and Keith Joslyn (Site Manager) to be organised and honest with high level communication skills and thorough attention to detail. During construction the worksite was kept clean and the tradespeople were polite.

Despite the difficulties of Covid-19 and late changes by the client, the project reached Practical Completion only one week after the programmed date (noting the project was at least a month ahead of program ahead of late client changes).

Sanpro were reasonable in their dealings regarding variations and the project was delivered on budget. The quality of the work and standard of finish on this project was excellent and any defects during construction were quickly corrected. The client has expressed to us their satisfaction with all aspects of Sanpro’s input on this project.

We will recommend Sanpro to future clients without hesitation and look forward to working with them again.

To Whom it May Concern
I have great pleasure in providing a written testimonial for Sanpro Construction who have just completed a major build at the College.

The building concerned had a construction cost in the region of $7.5m and comprised Classrooms, a new Administration Centre, Offices and a new Staffroom.

From the pre-tender evaluation and research right through to the finalisation of the project Sanpro and their team have been the ultimate professionals.

I provide myself on an eye for detail (some would say a painful eye for detail) but Sanpro share my passion for perfection. With every building project the tripartite partnership between the Builder, Client and Architect is pivotal to the success of the project and in this case the partnership was exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble and, in most cases, Sanpro anticipated issues before I had time to query them.

In terms of costs, Sanpro were diligent in minimising the number and cost of variations and were more than willing to negotiate on areas where a cost variation could be offset by a corresponding saving.

The Site Supervisor Richard Butler was a pleasure to work with and took great pride in ensuring the quality of the build. Likewise, the Project Manager Sheldon Carrick took an active role in ensuring the supply chain and Project Management went according to schedule, thwarted to some extent by Covid-19 restrictions that affected almost every industry during 2021!

Sanpro Directors Mark Barbaro and Dean Trezise were regularly on site both at Site meetings and on the building site itself and towards the end Dean was often mistaken for a Contractor hard at work on the tools! A special note for the sub-contractors as well. I know Sanpro make an effort in looking after their sub-contractors and this is reflected in their work ethic and quality of work. I often was amazed at the conditions they worked in, particularly over winter. They were exceptional.

Contract Administration was flawless, and the detail provided at each Site Meeting was the right balance between detail and efficiency. In short, Sanpro are the best Builders I have worked with in 25 years in the Education Industry. It would be difficult for me to consider using another builder for future projects.

On behalf of everyone at Peter Moyes Anglican Community School, I would like to thank Sanpro Construction for their work in building our new Chapel.

All involved from Sanpro have been consummate professionals, producing a worshipping space of the highest calibre.

The chapel of St Gregory had the potential to be a challenging build, Not for Sanpro Construction. Mark and his team were a delight to work with, quickly resolving any issues and producing the highest quality of finishes on time and on budget. I heartily recommend Sanpro Construction for your future building needs.

" Set with the challenge of expanding our existing Canning Vale warehouse, with tenants insitu, the team at Sanpro Construction did not disappoint.

Establishing clear objectives and communication channels from the outset, Sanpro delivered the job on budget and ahead of schedule. Special mention to site manager Jeff Carulli who went the extra yards to help ensure that the tenants were informed at every step and could carry on with business as usual.

In testament to their planning and delivery, we left them to it and only need to liaise with them on a couple of very minor items from start to PC. Anyone has been involved with construction projects would understand how exceptional this is. GM look forward to completing further projects with Mark and the Sanpro Team

The Chapel for the Peter Moyes Anglican Community School was a very important project for the school and my firm.
The building is prominently located on a difficult sloping site in close proximity to other school buildings and required a high level of finish for all materials.

The selection of an appropriate builder was critical to the success of the project. Sanpro Construction were highly recommended by client representatives and other architects as a potential contractor for the Chapel project. They were chosen due to their reputation and competitive tender.

They manged the construction of the project professionally, efficiently, with a team spirit and to a very high quality of workmanship. the project required a high level of cooperation and liaison with the clients and they excelled in this area. Mark and his team were very personable and pleasant to work with at all time. They have meta all time requirements and been fair and reasonable when costing variations.

We would recommend them as builders to clients for future appropriate projects and would readily work with them again.

On behalf of Holy Cross College, I would like to take this opportunity to commend Sanpro Construction for their outstanding work and workmanship. During 2018 and 2019

Sanpro Construction undertook various projects at the College, which included an extension of our existing staff room, the addition of a student wellness centre, and the construction of new hard courts.

To say the build went smoothly would be understatement. With Jeff Carulli, Site Foreman on site, we found that all site work, including deliveries and crane work was carried out safely and efficiently.

All Work was performed to ensure minimum disruption to staff and students at the college. Major works were scheduled for times when there would be little to no impact on daily routines, including ensuring good traffic flow in parking lots at peak times.

Ease of communications, site safety, quality of workmanship and finishes as we as finishing the build ahead of schedule, are just a few reasons why we would gladly recommend Sanpro Construction for any future tenders.

We hope to work with Sanpro again on future projects.

Sanpro have just completed the construction of a $5.8 million gymnasium and associated classrooms on our Wellard Campus. This is the second project that Sanpro has undertaken for the School.

We congratulate Sanpro for completing this project in time and budget. We were particularly impressed with the high standards and flexibility shown. Sanpro were very in tune with the requirements of the School for this building and showed consideration toward minimising the impact of the build on the operation of the School.

The fact that we have just awarded the contract for the refurbishment of our Calista Campus to Sanpro bears testimony to the quality and standing of Sanpro.

On behalf of Holy Cross College I would like to take this opportunity to commend Sanpro Construction for their outstanding work and workmanship.

During 2020 and 2021 Sanpro Construction undertook construction of our gymnasium. Previous to this Sanpro Construction has under taken a number of other projects at the College which included an extension of our existing staff room, the addition of a student wellness centre, and the construction of new hard courts.

To say the builds went smoothly, would not be giving enough recognition. With Jeff Carulli, Site Foreman, on site, we found that all s.ite works, deliveries and crane work were carried out safely and efficiently.

All work was performed to ensure minimum disruption to staff and students at the College. Major works were scheduled at times when there would be little to no impact on daily routines, including ensuring good traffic flow in parking lots at peak times.

Ease of communication, site safety, quality of workmanship and finishes, as well as finishing the build ahead of schedule, are just a few of the reasons why we would gladly recommend Sanpro Construction for any future tenders.

Thanks to Sanpro our students are now enjoying a state of the art facility that is the envy of many of our neighbouring schools and has become for Catholic Education Western Australia Ltd the model for the future.

We hope to work with Sanpro again on future projects.
