  • Despite the many obstacles thrown up during the process, Architect John Butt in particular, was very attentive; producing an inspired design and dealing very effectively with the Area Planner.  Brian was quick to respond to any queries and helped to make the process easier by keeping us informed at each stage. We found all Staff at BOK friendly, efficient and quick to respond.  We could not have found a better team.
