Client testimonial:

 

“I would not even have considered taking on this project without Rory Cullen’s invaluable expertise, which covered every single aspect of the work.

 

The building had a recent chequered history prior to my ownership so everything was under close scrutiny from the Local Authority, but once they knew he was involved it you could see that they had full confidence that all the contentious issues would be resolved as they quickly were, resulting in a building that has been returned to the community that we are all truly proud of.

 

I cannot speak highly enough of his services - his knowledge and skills in heritage matters must be unparalleled.”
