Chief Executive of Alpha Living

An absolute pleasure to work with such a dedicated and professional project team that shares the values held by Alpha. Shape were an integral part of the design team. The services provided by Steve Robinson and Lisa Greig were first-class. They were responsive and appreciative of the fact that this was our first scheme of this size and type. They responded quickly to changes in the design and were a valued member of the project team. I have no hesitation in recommending them for your framework agreement.”
