"Many thanks for all your work in regards to the workshops at the new school. The equipment is all outstanding, it’s such a contrast to what we had at the old school. Your team have done an outstanding job, the machinery and the environment are just great to work in. The rest of the team and the pupils seem to be settling in and are enjoying the new equipment and surroundings. I can imagine it’s not been an easy job but I have to say it’s been totally worth it!"

Our C-Vac extraction system was installed summer 2017 in our new light manufacturing workshop. The extract system was installed to our specification and we have found it easy to use. The technical aftercare from AES has been excellent any technical inquiry was dealt with a few hours of contacting them.

Thank you AES for such a superb installation, your team were so professional and it was so pleasant to experience the efficient way the team operated, it really was outstanding. I cannot express enough how amazing the C-vac system is, from the efficient extraction to the easy dust bag change, it really is fantastic. Everything about the system is 1st class, I have worked in workshops all my working life, 30 years now, and it’s a dream to come to work and use an efficient well installed system. Staff and Students are raving about it, the feedback has been outstanding.

I have dealt with AES on several projects, the last being the £40m New Ayrshire College in Kilmarnock; a ‘7 star’ campus providing facilities for Engineering and Construction students. AES Solutions were the successful contractor providing workshop equipment to facilitate this. Works involved space design, supply and commissioning of equipment to the value of £600k. Works have been carried out on time to an extremely tight budget which has involved some challenging value engineering. AES have risen to the challenge and at times gone above and beyond what would be expected of a sub-contractor. There have provided an excellent back-up facility of in-house design and procurement. I would have no hesitation in recommending AES Solutions on future projects.

The C-VAC extraction system is a revelation, we’re two years in and I’ve never worked in a workshop that’s as dust-free as ours. The fact that it’s automated means pupils don’t need to turn it on, along with the machine they’re using. Health & Safety within Design Technology has always been challenging to achieve within departments that have evolved over time but in a new build the H&S has been planned from the start, making the workshop as safe a place as it can be for our pupils.
