“The competence of the Pensar team was a refreshing change in the water industry. I was impressed with the responsiveness to queries and requests. The quality of the work was good, as were the safety and environmental aspects of the project. During the progression of Green Square Stormwater Offtake Pumping Station Project targets were met. Of particular note is the quality and frequency of the project reporting. The program was professionally run to meet the project outcomes for Flow. We look forward to future collaborations with Pensar.“

“Pensar has worked with Stockland over several years and a range of projects. In that time, we’ve seen Pensar evolve into a more sophisticated and diversified operation. They certainly have a similar culture to Stockland’s. One aspect that has always been evident is the customer focus. Pensar is a responsive contractor. Which ensures that we see limited issues arising, and projects delivered on time and budget.“

Kingsley Andrew

“I’ve worked with Pensar on several civil infrastructure and residential subdivision projects. They are very collaborative and easy to work with. They take ownership and responsibility for the project. They work hard to understand the client’s objectives. They have a good appreciation for managing and mitigating risks on the project. Any potential conflicts and challenges were picked up before they got to site with their planning process, so they were easily resolved. They certainly deliver more than just what’s in the contract and schedule.“

The work was completed efficiently, despite inclement weather … I was particularly impressed with the friendly nature of the service crew, the cleanliness of the job, the quietness of the work considering it was done at night, and the helpfulness of the traffic management staff.“

“We were very happy with Pensar’s work. They were very easy to work with. Problems were negligible—minor issues were picked up and rectified quickly with no fuss. We know the Pensar team. We know what we’re getting. And they communicate well. They get good consideration from their current work. Would we work with them again? Absolutely.“

“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.“

Matthew Lewison
Group CEO, Open Corporation (Former GM, Peet Ltd, Queensland)

“I’ve encountered Pensar working as a consultant civil engineer, and more recently in the client role working with developers. I’ve found them fantastic to deal with. They’re extremely approachable and very pragmatic in solving any problems that come up. They take ownership and form a big part of the solution, which is very healthy. They rely strongly on relationships—you’re not just another project. I think they’re very good at what they do.“

Taking a swing at the boss is good therapy!“

Pensar gave me that experience, then gave me a job. It’s a good company to work for—very friendly and supportive, with a very high standard and wide variety of work. Pensar is the reason I now have a career in Australia.“
