We used Russell for the second time on a project. He was very efficient. Extremely professional and very diligent. I would highly recommend Russell to anyone wishing to do any similar works. A pleasure to work with.
Russell was very professional and an on the ball, despite been given a limited task, he would think well ahead and give advice and solution beyond his scope of works.
Hope to work again on future projects.

Thanks for the excellent review. It all helps.
I cannot recommend Russell more. His quote was very competitive and I could sense he knew what he was talking about. He took on the job and got on with it. He did much more than asked and advised us on many issues.
Then, we had an unexpected changes in plans, and Russell delivered extra changes with no quibble in a very short time.
