Colin Turner

Director / Primus Property Group Ltd

In the days of what seems to be a “hands off” approach when providing consultancy services, it has been refreshing to both see and more importantly be able to rely on the owners of a company to personally manage your project on a daily basis. The experience and practical approach both Paul and Carl have taken has been a great contributor to the success of our schemes.

I have worked with Innov8DS on two major projects now with total project value of £4.5m. I have been delighted with the service we have received from the Company. On both projects to date detailed planning and outstanding communication were essential in a live school environment and both were handled with considerable aplomb. The relationship between client, Innov8DS, designers and contractors were outstanding throughout the projects, largely thanks to the active, engaging and firm but affable approach adopted by our lead consultant
