Most challenging project:
Establishing construction communications for the multi-phased Battersea Power Station site in October 2013. With over 4,000 neighbours and thousands of commuters looking into one of London’s highest profile sites, nothing less than "platinum" standard construction communications would suffice. Two years on, the Building Battersea brand is well established and neighbours are delighted with the outcome.
