I’ve dealt with Pensar for a number of years. They’ve always taken a long-term view of business. They work with us to overcome challenges and find solutions—to realise the project and nurture the relationship. That helpfulness and support stand out above any other contractor I’ve dealt with. When I travel to Brisbane, Pensar is the only contractor I catch up with. I always get an honest and insightful appraisal. I believe we’re in the early stages of what will be a very productive relationship. In terms of preferred business relationships, if all of our consultants thought the same as Pensar does as a contractor, we’d be very fortunate.”
