Leslie Macpherson, Director
Villa M, Samui
We have been fortunate to have the pleasure of working with Russell Whitehead of ATS Construction Services in the capacity of construction engineer and builder of our home, Villa M, in Koh Samui, and would be more than comfortable recommending ATS Construction Services and their team to anyone looking to maximize the potential of their home or site.
Villa M was completed on time, on budget and better than we could have imagined.
We engaged ATS initially because of the extensive and diverse portfolio of projects with which they have been involved. Although we had some idea about the home we wished to create, ATS proved to have great conceptual ability with our brief, demonstrating meticulous attention to detail. ATS worked closely with us, embraced several existing design challenges during the construction and created many really beautiful elements. He was able to guide us on where we could extract greater potential in the design and layout, as well as maximizing energy efficiencies throughout our home.
ATS’s consistent professionalism and guidance throughout the process, including his knowledge of local council issues, requirements and regulations. enabled us to create a unique home, which is considered a standout in Koh Samui. Also ATS's understanding of Thai culture and customs ensured that from foundation to completion traditional Buddhist ceremonies were respected and that the villa is in harmony with the village architecture and environment, using eco friendly materials.
For us, ATS simplified the entire process. ATS's ability to listen, interpret and conceptualize are very impressive as was the way they worked with his entire team to ensure our dream was met. Most importantly their patience, flexibility and humor made it possible to meet challenges as they arose, turning potential problems into successful resolutions.
We are thrilled with Villa M and take this opportunity to enthusiastically recommend ATS to any client or professional who has the good fortune of an opportunity to work with him.
