WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY ABOUT US
Geoff proved himself to be skilful in challenging our thinking in a positive and constructive way to ensure the best possible outcome and interpreted and maintained the highest standards for the design. This has been key to attracting customers, building the brand and the business.
Having Local Agenda on board brought an added dimension to the management of this complex project. It was easier to engage with our stakeholders having a ‘translator’ in the team to explain the technical issues at each stage. We have subsequently engaged Local Agenda to manage our academy project in Taunton.
In translating the Ark philosophy into our language, Geoff helped us to get quickly to the right solution for the Academy at Redbridge. It was rewarding working from day one with someone who knew just what the client wanted. Both ourselves and our clients are delighted with the outcome
During our continuing negotiations with the contractor Balfour Beatty, we saw little of their architects. It was therefore invaluable to have Local Agenda on board to identify the design risks and opportunities and help steer the project through the complex contractual issues.
Following a positive recommendation we approached Geoff Haslam, at the start to be our project manager for the re-building of our church and accompanying restaurant, which we have on our property in Hammersmith London W6. Geoff’s grasp and execution, in fine detail, of our brief has been nothing less than exceptional. With great skill he has blended together a group of professionals who have become, through his quiet influence, enthusiastic champions of our project.
As a listed building there have been many extra strands to this contract, which again Geoff has handled with a fine sense for what has been required of us by the relevant authorities. I speak on behalf of the directors of The Christian Community in London when I say, that we are not only totally satisfied with Geoff Haslam’s work and business ethic but that we would be glad to recommend him to anybody who might like to engage him professionally in future.
