“Just wanted to email this morning to comment on how fantastic the offices are looking with all the new furniture in place.

It has all gone so well and the look and space that we have achieved is great and the look has gone down well with all the staff.

It just improves on the lovely building that we have that we now have an interior to match it.

A big thank you to the guys at team install who worked constantly to get the best for us. Each of them were good to work with and had to put up with my OCD standards.”
