Renee Van Aaken, Project Manager
Reducing Reoffending Program Management Office

NSW Department of Justice 

"The particular job was complicated, with challenges in timeframes, planning, environment and multiple layers of governance. Next and their staff were exceptional communicators, who used all means of communication in a timely way to ensure that there were no delays in the work. They often served as a mediator between the workmen within the correctional centres and the several reporting requirements with the company and me, the client. The Next staff were very professional, always meet compliance requirements and ensured their workmen understood that they were working within the confines of correctional centres. The standard of refurbishment work which was delivered over 10 sites was excellent. The finishes and quality of work was above standard. No question was too small, no change too much. I would not hesitate in working with Next again."

“The multifunctional centre was a challenging project undertaken in a live environment at our head office. Our working relationship with Next was always professional and solution oriented. They listened to our needs and were responsive to project changes.
We also appreciated their efforts to mitigate the impact of construction work on our day-to-day activities. Our staff feel a great sense of pride with the exceptional space they now have for meetings, culinary demonstrations and client functions. It was a pleasure to work with the Next team.”

Their flexibility in being able to think outside the square allowed them to provide solutions whenever there was an issue and on completion of the project, kept in constant contact ensuring there were no outstanding matters that required addressing.”
