In particular I would like to express appreciation to José Granado who led the electrical and mechanical services project team. In my dealings with Wood & Grieve Engineers and the project team no request was ever too difficult or too demanding, and due to José’s excellent communication skills, the discussion and liaison with an unusually demanding Client were always conducted in a co-operative, professional and pleasant manner.
