"Carl Fox of Fox Associates, was our project manager for the external renovation, including re-roofing of our challenging old house. He managed the selection of the main contractors and throughout supervised the complicated work with scrupulous attention to detail and watchfulness. A good working relationship with contractors and clients was maintained with tact and humour. We were constantly thankful to be under his calm and considerate stewardship."

His ability to communicate at all levels and ensure a thorough understanding of the complex issues was equally impressive as was his professionalism.”
