Do you have a favorite Summer Consultants moment?

Working on the design for our office renovation and move was my favorite moment. Taking a design from concept, to construction, to being heavily involved in the commissioning process was an awesome experience. Even if it was one of the toughest clients I’ve ever worked for. Being able to come to the office and work in an environment you helped create is very rewarding and helped me better understand issues our client’s experience.
