Orakei Marina (Mair and Associates)

Date: September 2010

To whom it may concern

I have over many years had a business association with Total Marine Services and more recently Total Floating Systems and can state without any hesitation that Brent and his crew are experts in their field. This company has many varied skills with highly experienced staff to complete maritime construction on time and within budget and together with an impressive range of specialist plant and equipment to ensure any contingency will be covered. I have had associations with eight marine construction companies over the last 30 years completing more than 17 marina developments together with numerous marine civil engineering projects and I can confidently state that Total Marine Services and Total Floating Systems would be my first choice for future marine works.

Most recently Total Marine Services and Total Floating Systems have successfully completed projects for my company Orakei Marina and additions to the Tutukaka Marina. As specialist consultant to Whangamata Marina I can confirm their efforts resulted in the offshore works being completed without any problems and ahead of schedule.

Total Marine Services provides a quality of installation of the floating structures and associated piling which is impeccable and without doubt are leaders in this field. The new floating structures manufactured by Total Floating Systems are extremely innovative with many advantages on standard floatation.

Whangamata Marina

Date: January 2010

To whom it may concern

My name is Mick Kelly. I was President of the Whangamata Marina Society from its inception in 1992 until my retirement from the post in November 2009. I was intimately involved in the design and tendering stage, and was Project Director during the construction stage. A separate tender was let for the pontoons and piles, with associated electrical reticulation, water reticulation and gangways. After the outsiders were eliminated, two serious contenders remained – Bellingham Marine and Total Marine Services and Total Floating Systems. After consultation with people experienced in the Marina Industry, the contract was awarded to Total Marine Services and Total Floating Systems. I never had cause to regret that decision. Total Marine Services and Total Floating Systems performance was outstanding. They were innovative, flexible, easy to work with and totally reliable. At the end of the project they delivered an excellent product on time and on budget. I have no hesitation in giving their services the highest recommendation. I am happy to discuss any aspects of this reference

To Tim, Brent & the Total Marine Services/Total Floating Systems Team

I want to thank you for an outstanding display of operational management under the most difficult of circumstances during the recent removal of Orams Marine submerged slipway concrete beam.

Your ability to adjust immediately as required, to the unfolding demands, emphasises the professionalism of your company. To have the resources to respond so decisively with additional men & appropriate equipment at 5pm on a Friday afternoon indicates the depth of your company's resources in the performance of a contract, involving a site where conditions are virtually unknown.

It is a pleasure to work with such a committed & dedicated team
