“Working in a UNESCO World Heritage site was the ultimate of challenges. The demands imposed by the Council and the community on design integrity, build quality and delivery strategy were extreme. We embraced this opportunity with conviction. Painstaking consultation and engagement with stakeholders resulted in an award- winning transformation of the historic city centre we are so proud to put our name to.”
