Client Testimonials

“After falling behind on a recent project, we contacted Joe Calinksi at Optima Site Solutions in order to increase our workforce and subsequent productivity. At our first call we discussed in detail with Joe as to what our expectations were for additional site labour. Joe's understanding of this resulted in two general labourer whom worked well on site, were trained in the required H&S accreditations and brought us back in line with the tight programme. The operatives were reference checked by Joe and this feedback was related back to us, promptly. His understanding of our company needs is invaluable.

As a result, Joe at Optima will always be our first point of contract for any idditional site labour requirements. We cannot recommend their services enough.”

“We have worked with Optima Site Solutions for over 4 years. We receive a 1st class service from Joe Calinski who is our go-to supplier for additional labour.

The relationship is founded on honesty & integrity, which works both ways. HAB are often offered the opportunity to benefit from high quality construction personnel when they have become available from completed jobs.

This is in addition to the requests Hab regularly make for plant operators & skilled labour on short term contracts.

We are a business that are proud to work with Optima.”

“Since I have started using Joe Calinski and Optima Site Solutions Ltd, I can wholeheartedly state that the level of service offered is consistently high. We have at times given him next to no notice and miraculously he ‘pulls it out of the bag’.

From the front-end contact of asking for a specific trade through to invoicing, they make the process seem seamless and effortless. Joe has built an incredible team in a short space of time who are well versed in reading the clients needs early on in a contract. For once in my career I am not pestered by consultants offering trades, or promising the planet just to make their targets.

Joe and Optima are the preferred suppliers for all my labour requirements and will continue to be my No1 until such time as standards of service subside. Knowing Joe and the way he operates, I cannot foresee any reason why A2M and Optima will not have a long running client/supplier relationship.

I would not hesitate to recommend Optima Site Solutions Ltd to anyone for their labour requirements.”
