From my phone call to LADS to getting Sam out on site, Could have not been any easier. They explained everything to me and gave me prices on the phone. Sam came out on site, very friendly and thorough. Great job, very neat work, excellent mapping out and detailed plans. All this at a very reasonable price. Thank you all at LADS....

We work with LADS on a regular basis and they are always professional, trust worthy and reliable. They do excellent work! I am constantly emailing Jimmy Martin (the Works Coordinator) requesting copies of endless paperwork for our Clients, quotes, booking jobs in, etc and he is always on top of everything. It’s so reassuring for me that I can rely on him to get something done that I ask him for. He’s always efficient, friendly and accommodating and makes my job so much easier.

As a traffic controller working along side Lads- Kai Smith has proven to be a pleasure to work with. His communication skills are precise, easy to understand and above all respectful. Kai shows all traffic controllers on site nothing but common courtesy. Great work!!
