Hello from Tom


Tearing a tendon while hill walking in January made me think I should have been stretching more. Stretching our bodies at weekends and tiring ourselves out physically is important, but equally, so is being stretched and worked hard in our professional lives. This is where our clients help us.

In my profession, we get our energy and creativity to tackle a project from our ambitious and enthusiastic clients. As a team, we thrive on the challenge of bringing a client’s vision to life. To make this happen, the team are constantly stretching each other with solution based critiques and brainstorms to ensure our professional muscles are always in good condition.

2022 has brought a fabulous variety of new projects in some beautiful parts of Scotland. Beginning a new client project is exciting but challenging and can feel like a restart – taking me back to the bottom of that hill. As my quadricep tendon recovers, I will focus on regular stretching for myself and the team, helping to build resilience across our practice. This will prepare us for when projects arrive, so we're nimble and ready to combat anything.
