“Carl Fox of Fox Associates, was our project manager for the external renovation, including re-roofing, of our challenging old house over a period of 3 - 4 months. 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.”

“Carl’s strength was his ability to manage a complex team of specialist contractors in order to bring the project in on time and to budget without compromising the client’s exacting brief. His dedication and commitment to achieving a successful project outcome was impressive. His ability to communicate at all levels and ensure a thorough understanding of the complex issues was equally impressive as was his professionalism.”
