“We found Reddy Architecture to be very good to work with through all stages of the project. The quality of their design work was matched by a professionalism and attention-to-detail that ensured delivery of the project to a very high standard.
We were particularly pleased with the way that Reddy Architecture worked with us at design stage to gain a very good understanding of our particular needs and to explore innovative options for meeting those needs.
We have been in the offices since 2006 and we continue to be very pleased.”

Facilities costs were reduced by creating open plan workspaces for all staff and by confining file storage to a large-format roller storage unit, reducing the overall footprint by 60%.
