Client Testimonial

‘With a tight programme and hard lease expiry, we required expertise in both design management and project management to deliver a modern fit-for-purpose office fit out across 1,200 sqm of floor area.

Based upon market knowledge and past experience, we selected Rebbeck Dunn Watters (ROW} to lead the project from the outset. ROW successfully galvanised the design and delivery teams. The entire project team worked together in a collaborative and professional manner ironing out most issues in a planned rather than reactive manner. This process-driven management style from initial concept, through the design phases, contractor selection and delivery enabled complete Client satisfaction with Time, Cost and Quality parameters all ahead of expectations.

We would be very pleased to recommend RDW to any other corporate occupier who expects the very highest of standards.’
