What work do you have?
We’re working on preliminary designs for some interesting residential projects involving bespoke solutions and have inquired about offering a sports design consultation service to some of our existing client contacts. We’ll enter competitions to expand our portfolio and will look for work through our network of contacts in the UK, Europe, Asia and the USA.

To grow steadily based on a reputation for quality, excellence and discretion, as we offer full non-disclosure confidentiality agreements to all clients.

A London office is an ambition, and hopefully abroad as well.

We are using existing contacts and identifying potential clients through Linked-In and Twitter.
