Meet the Team

We believe in directness. Talk to engineers & consultants, not sales people.

Sales people sell aspiration, not reality. So we don’t have a sales team.

All our staff are part consultant, part engineer, part project manager. They’re great at listening, business-minded and focused on solving your unique challenges. They’re trouble-shooters and creators who pay attention to detail, testing everything until it’s perfect. And they’re great communicators, because communication is key to delivering your project on time and within budget.
