One of Steel Pencil's competitve advantages is the quality of the services provided to our clients and those involved in the complete supply chain. Below are some testimonials from a few of our clients.
Christchurch Transitional Cathedral
“A 3D model of the cathedral provided by a construction modelling company, Steel Pencil, was vital to the resolution of many issues that developed in the course of the contract. Without that, we'd still be at foundation level. It was extremely beneficial to have them on board. It was mind-bending stuff” - THE PRESS, CHRISTCHURCH
MR STEPHEN LYNCH, PROJECT MANAGER for NAYLOR LOVE CONSTRUCTION
I wish to extend my thanks to you and your team for burning the midnight oil and getting the job out. From B&L Steel and myself personally we appreciate all of your efforts.
Thanks for your help getting this roof over the line!... I really was in the @#$* on this one and Steel Pencil has proven their worth in more aspects than one!
MR DARYL WARREN, GENERAL MANAGER for B & L STEEL
Christchurch Transitional Cathedral
“We have recently worked with Steel Pencil in connection with the construction of the Transitional Cathedral in Christchurch. We found them to be extremely capable and went out of their way to help us overcome the many problems big and small that cropped up during the build period. The shop drawings they supplied were in a timely fashion, accurate and very easy to read and follow. They also worked in with our other trades; supply, coordinate and communicate information with the Architect, Engineer, Window Manufacturer and LVL Timber Manufacturers. Steel Pencil also set out the cardboard tube assemblies and installation. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone wishing to use their services”
MR MURRAY FLETT, SITE MANAGER for CHRISTCHURCH TRANSITIONAL CATHEDRAL

I would like to personally thank you for your help, attention to detail and appreciate all the effort you put in.
Well done guys and look forward to many more projects working together".

GORDON WADDELL, CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER
Cranbourne Aquatic & Leisure Centre
"...Steel Pencil has done a brilliant job and deserves congratulation. The steel has come together beautifully, and the pool hall rafters look wonderful. The conceptual workshopping and confluence of talent in realizing these exposed elements is on display for all to see.
I know that Steel Pencil, led by Andrew, have worked out and coordinated the architectural and structural intent beyond what would normally be expected, particularly in tricky areas.... The result reflects the effort with the elements coming together perfectly.
On behalf of Arup I'd like to congratulate Steel Pencil on their superb effort and I'd like to say we are grateful for all the hard work and attention to detail that has gone in, a compliment that is equally deserved by Cox, Hansen Yunken and the other consultants......
With the scene set, I'm sure the remainder of the job will be completed with equal vigour and quality of workmanship".
ASHLEIGH WILLIS, ARUP MELBOURNE
"On behalf of Bowhill Engineering I would like to pass on our sincere thanks to you and your team for a job well done. We are all under immense time pressures on this job to meet client expectations, and the efforts of your team to accommodate our continual requests for early issue of drawings were outstanding.
The value added service provided by people such as Bevin and Rosette was paramount to us being able to meet our clients many requests for updated RFI registers and any other information deemed neccessary by the client. I am sure there were many other people working away in the background that I did not have direct contact with who also added to the success of the project.
Once again thank you and I look forward to our next challenge together, hopefully in the near future".
PETER McINTYRE, PROJECT CO-ORDINATOR
"I have just had a meeting with the client. They are very happy with the drawings that you have provided. The guy I deal with has 6 checkers at his disposal but has reduced the amount of checking carried out due to the quality of the early issued that were checked 100%. Keep up the good work.
The client I deal with is a detailer by trade and is their detailing manager who looks after all their subbies around the world. Very experienced guy who knows most companies in the game so it's great that you guys can impress him"
"We find the quality of their drawings to be of Very High Standard using Tekla. All RFI's answered and recorded in a prompt and professional manner, numerous problem solving done by Steel Pencil to speed the jobs up, drawing register and finished drawings delivered to us on schedule at all times.
We have have not encountered any mistakes or delays to any of our projects to date which results to the speedy erection of our steel work and keeping on schedule with the developers".
STEPHEN A. BEASLEIGH, DIRECTOR - PRECISION GROUP
"...we have engaged Steel Pencil Ltd to detail various structural steelwork projects we have undertaken over the last few years, and they have accomplished such tasks in a professional manner within the time contraints imposed. Steel Pencil Ltd have also undertaken structural detailing of offshore work for us e.g. Desico Factory - Western Samoa; which proved to be efficient for all concerned"

"Eastbridge are Heavy Steel Fabrication facility based in Napier, NZ. Our sales market is primarily Steel Bridging, but we also manufacture towers, poles and other heavy steel fabrication.
We have successfully worked with Steel Pencil to complete various reasonable scale projects, including export work.
We find Steel Pencil's operation to be efficient and up to date and that their proximity (some 200km from here) does not affect their ability to communicate or perform effectively".
