 “What we’ve created here is special; we’re not just a bunch of people going to do a job. Yes we’re a large collection of planners and surveyors…but together we have a unique commitment to our clients and colleagues; we’re truly a team and we treat everyone with respect, trust and honesty. We have some of the brightest minds in the industry and every day I’m surrounded by people who make me laugh, who I value the opinions of and who help each other enjoy what they do. We may not shout the loudest but in some respects, I admire that most…the humbling modesty of our incredibly talented group of people." – Rob Bower, Managing Partner
