'I worked closely with Andy from 2005-2009 when he was Project Architect for
Keppie on the B&Q Warehouse at Hermiston Gait in Edinburgh. Andy is
diligent and thorough in all he does, ensuring the preparation of design and
construction information prepared in good time and to an excellent
standard. His attention to detail and understanding of the project brief
were excellent. He built good professional relationships with myself,
B&Q, the design team, the contractor and the various statutory officials
based on clear information exchange and discussion. This made all our jobs
easier and allowed the successful delivery of an exemplary project. He was
proactive when faced with the challenge of a scheme or detailed redesign whether from change instigated by client, end user or contractor. In both design and site progress meetings he was well prepared and dealt with others and issues in a relaxed and understanding manner with just the right amount of humour where appropriate. His management of the design team and design process on my behalf were second to none. Building projects can be complicated and stressful and whilst this was also true of the B&Q Hermiston Gait project, Andy's attitude and diligence helped make the process enjoyable from sketch design to delivery of the completed building.'

construction of a large retail warehouse and associated garden centre,
buildersyard, amenity offices and cafe. Andrew was the Project Architect
and lead design consultant for the full duration from inception and planning to construction through to completion and building control sign off.

As the lead design consultant Andrew was key to the project being delivered successfully.'

He was professional in his approach to the job and made life easy for us by dealing with all the neccessary documentation and certificates. Our builder also found him easy and practical to deal with. We would have no hesitation in giving him a reference for any job.'
