Wood and Grieve provided an efficient and sustainable design solution, proactive problem resolution, a high standard of reporting and prompt responses to information requests. Their thorough knowledge of Dept of Health Practical Completion requirements made for a smooth transition when the facility was handed over to the Client. Andrew Wakelam managed the mechanical consultancy and he was practically "hands on" throughout the duration of the project. He worked in a collaborative manner with both client representatives and other members of the consultant team.Jeff Roberts, Hassell
