''FMSA provided a high level of service throughout the duration of the project and ensured that the facility was accurately documented on time and built within budget expectations. Although based in Melbourne, FMSA demonstrated an understanding of local conditions and were prepared to attend site when required. I would not hesitate to recommend FMSA for similar projects.
