“We were familiar with tensile construction and knew it offered excellent value for money.

“We also placed great value on Collinson’s experience in this sector. They guided us through many decisions and we were able to trust their advice in unfamiliar territory, such as acoustics and air handling.

Their experience has been pivotal to the project’s success.”

Andrew Brown, Bursar, St Neot’s Preparatory School
