Testimonials

“Bishop Ramsey School has engaged the services of Wilby & Burnett on a number of occasions now in relation to submitting a CIF bid. We have found them to be very professional in their approach and always willing to assist in any way they can. Their advice and guidance through our submissions has been invaluable, particularly with the uploading and completion of relevant files such as Project Need, Project Planning and Value for Money. As a result of their advice, guidance and practical support we have had 3 successful bids in the last 3 years to the EFA for Science Laboratory refurbishment, a Sports Hall extension and new boilers for the school.”

“I am delighted to be able to provide a reference for Wilby & Burnett LLP. They proved quick and able in assessing the situation the school was in, and put together a very professional, and well considered plan that impressed the school governors.

In conclusion the “can do” attitude, the good humour and professionalism of Wilby & Burnett staff have enabled the school to achieve an outstanding facility with a minimum of disruption and anxiety.”

“A new hall, the design of which still attracts a “WOW” factor. The old hall has been tastefully converted into a library/study area. Full of praise for the design and layout of the additional buildings. As a governing body we were appreciative of your forward looking design. We have found our association with your firm a very pleasant, professional experience and one that has produced results we could not have dreamed of. We would happily recommend you as architects in any project associated with the design and production of school buildings.”
