York St John University is my second scheme working Collinson on a tensile sports facility and again they proved to be an excellent sub-contractor completing the works to a high standard, on time and within budget. I find them to be pro-active, friendly and approachable and wouldn’t hesitate in using them againYork St John - Mark Harvey, Senior Quantity Surveyor, Triton Construction Ltd
Surf Snowdonia was a fast-paced, commercially critical project and we needed to select a delivery partner for our tensile building who could not only work autonomously but who we were confident could produce the right quality product in a timescale fit our tight programme. Collinson achieved this and helped deliver the world’s first stadium surfing venue.Gavin Garner, Director, WCP Associates
The team demonstrated a strong passion for quality with good systems in place for accepting various elements of work with any non-conformities being swiftly rectified.
The site teams themselves were all hard working and dedicated team players that were a pleasure to work with and I look forward to working with Collinson again in the future.Steve Lee, - Project Manager, Kier Group
Throughout the contract Collinson were diligent and professional in their approach to their works within a live school environment. The site team respected the school environment that they were in, which was evident by the consistent standard of PPE worn by all operatives and maintenance of plant and equipment.
The very narrow site access was shared with the school but with good planning and site controls all deliveries went like clockwork. All risk assessments, method statements, safe systems of works and fit for work certification were produced on time.

‘We were familiar with the tensile building construction method and knew it offered excellent value for money. We also placed great value on Collinson’s experience in this sector, they guided us through the many decisions necessary and we were able to trust their advice in unfamiliar territory, such as acoustics and air handling throughout the building, their experience has been pivotal to the build’s success’.Andrew Brown, Bursar, St Neot's Preparatory School
