Susan provided acoustic design services for a new build project requiring very specific acoustic capabilities. Susan was enthusiastic from the outset and diligent in her approach. Provision of design information was timely and follow up to queries and design detailing were dealt with immediately. It was a pleasure to have Susan as part of the design team, and the acoustic capabilities of the finished building exceeded expectation.
