"Assurity Consulting were selected in the tender process due to their independence in the marketplace. We needed an organisation that could cope with the scale of the project, and they needed to be able to work against KPIs that were set in stone. They also needed to demonstrate excellent planning and organisation skills to deliver the quality of service we expect from our suppliers. Assurity Consulting use their own employed Consultants, who deliver outstanding customer service and they give a clear picture by focusing on the management of our risks and situation. Their reports are easy to understand with accurate schematics which give us solid knowledge of our situation and the actions that need to be undertaken." Patrick Julien, Building Services Manager, UCL
