This was the first time I had come across Phil, and I found him to be a good, friendly, communicator from the start of the project on site.  Good communication and a non-adversarial approach are always important on any project, and particularly on an alteration project on an existing, occupied, busy building as this Hotel certainly was.   I believe Phil appreciated the need for this approach throughout this project. Inevitably there was some time pressure on the...

I found Phill very professional and easy to deal with.  The on-site work was always ready at the time of the site visit request which is important to us but also right when we inspected. The site in my experience was always very tidy and appeared very organised.  This project was a little different as it was a Local authority partner project where a different local authority does the plan check and then Trafford carry out the inspections....
