Chris Edney of Readability provided us with his thoughts on the project and what it's like working with Source One...

"Lisa Lewis of Source One Consulting has been excellent throughout. From initial discussions all the way through to final handover I have been impressed with the communication and the depth of knowledge and contacts in all aspects of the build and refurbishment.

In all honestly I could probably have saved some money if I had project managed everything from start to finish but I chose to concentrate on running my businesses and handed everything over to Lisa.

I am very happy with the final result. If you are thinking of doing an office move or 2 site set up as we discussed it might be worth having a chat with Lisa."
