This project must be regarded as a success in its outcome. Indeed, its realisation in the face of budgetary and time constraints is impressive. The original vision has largely been achieved in terms of the accommodation provided, and in its quality and accessibility.
- CASE STUDY REPORT ON BELGRADE THEATRE , COVENTRY FOR CABE (COMMISSION FOR ARCHITECTURE AND THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT)
David’s knowledge of managing capital projects was invaluable as we undertook the theatre’s first ever major refurbishment project. His attention to detail, understanding of the theatre environment, and willingness to take a firm stance when needed were all attributes that were a real contribution to our project’s success. No capital project should be undertaken without him!
