They did an excellent job and helped us through some very challenging work. Daniel has a wealth of experience in working with Local Authorities and partnering towards WIN situations for all involved. He is also technically brilliant in his subject and I enjoyed working with him a lot. I would work with him again in a heartbeat.

John Dunlop, Environmental Manager,
Fusion JV

Daniel was incredibly helpful, guided us with expert advice and we were delighted with the outcome - I wouldn't hesitate to use again and would highly recommend!

Rose Cottage

Daniel provided excellent noise control, amplification and acoustical consultancy advice. Working across 2 venues that required continual work, support and advice. Daniel is both professional and highly competent with a can do attitude and willing to go the extra mile to get results.

Naomi White, Buildings Manager, Clarendon Centre

Daniel is responsible for delivering and managing both weather and noise reports alongside approval of consents as of when needed. I find Daniel to be very helpful and forward-thinking in dealing with obstacles that are out our control and always presenting alternatives in which one can deal with the current disruptions.

Cristiano dos Santos,
