  • MATS team performed all the necessary preparatory work prior to the arrival of TS personnel. This included the reinforcement of the false flooring, reorganising of the cable tray system, the upgrade of the electrical supply distribution and the design of the console footprint that permitted the cutting of holes in the false flooring for cable entry. A team from MATS continuously supported Thinking Space personnel during the installation process. The transition process was fully coordinated with TS personnel and this facilitated simultaneous installation processes thereby reducing significantly the installation and testing execution times. The process turned out to be a success story thanks to the effort from all parties and the excellent teamwork. This was something that was noticed and appreciated by the MATS operational section who enjoyed their new environment.

  • Due to the nature of Air Traffic applications, it is essential to have trust in a supplier that can deliver a high level of service and product on time and to budget. I have been involved in Control Tower projects over the last 10 years and it is always a pleasure to work with Wayne and his team

  • "Thinking Space worked closely with both myself and our CCTV installers from day one, providing me with 2D and 3D images of the finished product, allowing me to better convince Partners of the finished article. As the project progressed, Thinking Space were in regular contact with me to ensure that I was receiving exactly what I needed. The build and install went smoothly, something a project manager looks forward to! The finished article really looks the part and provided that wow factor, with sight lines all taken account of and Operators able to provide an excellent service in comfort".

  • "CDS Systems have worked with Thinking Space Systems for several years on many projects and – as expected, Thinking Space performed to their usual high standards again whilst undertaking the recent installation works at the University of South Wales. With minimal disruption, their staff were courteous, considerate and flexible in working with CDS and the University in order to achieve an almost un-noticed installation without causing any disruption to the University or its security operations. All staff were clearly experienced, competent, polite and took full ‘ownership’ of the tasks undertaken, all packaging and mess cleared away and the control room left spotless".

  • "We approached Thinking Space Systems who were known to us, and therefore we felt confident that we were in good hands when it came to designing our new control room. Their furniture is lightweight and easy to assemble, so having the furniture exported from the UK and installed here in Parramatta by the local Thinking Space team was an easy process, meaning that we could concentrate our efforts on the more technical aspects of the project. Since the control room has been operational, the staff here have commented what a pleasant 24/7 environment we have created"

We made some (quite a few) changes to the internal arrangements in the consoles to accommodate the equipment we have to fit inside.  All credit to your installation team, as they implemented these for us with full acceptance and no fuss. It was a great experience to work with your team, some new friendships were established which we will take forward with us and are looking forward to the next installation".
