Feed back from client
Rand Associates were a pleasure to work with throughout the project. From the outset Project Manager, Simon Davis, made himself available at all times to provide general advice and accommodate our variations and demands - for example, helping with the development of survey forms and data base to inform our asset management strategy. The Rand survey team were highly professional and conducted themselves with respect to tenants. Surveys were completed on time and to a high standard. Based on this experience I would have no hesitation in using Rand Associates again.
