Debbie has a very broad experience base from working on a wide variety of schemes ranging from very small scale to large, high profile projects; ranging from audits of existing buildings to appraisals of new-build and refurbishment proposals, including listed buildings. She has a particular interest in training; she works closely with colleagues and clients enabling them to gain an understanding and knowledge of the issues and barriers many people face. Never prescriptive she distils the essence of what statutory and best practice guidance actually means in space and/or equipment, while still enabling designers to create beautiful, well-thought out environments.
