As an independent consultant in 2011 I worked on a large project for an NHS Ambulance Trust; Optimum Design Services were employed to carry out Asset Management Surveys on more than 70 buildings and, I am pleased to say, that it was a pleasure working with them.
They provided us with the AutoCAD drawings, Asset Management survey sheets and detailed photography for all the Ambulance Stations. Because the project was so large, we were kept up to date with detailed weekly reports and this enabled us to keep this substantial project on schedule despite a number of basic variations imposed by our client.
Optimum's work was always professional, accurate, top quality and kept within a strict budgetary envelope. I would be happy to work with them again in the future and would be pleased to recommend them to other organisations.

I have known James Walker for many years now and we have carried out many different types of work together ranging from unit sizes of less than 1,000 sq ft to whole estates of over 100,000 sq ft.
In that time James has always been extremely professional and very reliable. He gives tangible reasoning behind his advice, realistic timeframes for the delivery of work, his pricing structure is competitive and the final presentation first rate.
All in all I remain committed to using James on the schemes that I am involved with and continue to spread the good word whenever I am asked who to use in such situations.

Denton Associates have worked with James Walker on a number of occasions over many years and have always found him to be quick, efficient and above all to have great client empathy.
He has an uncanny ability to make people think they are the only client he has and he gives them his undivided attention. He is innovative in his design solution when needs dictate and always respectful of the grain of a building therefore keeping any costs to budget.
We will continue to work with James and would be very happy to recommend him.
David Nook, Managing Director – Denton Associates
I find it very difficult to fault any work Optimum has completed for us. Always responding quickly and efficiently, never misunderstanding the brief - more likely enquiring very carefully about the brief to ensure there is no margin for error. Optimum has always delivered on time and with a smile. James is very good at producing consistently high quality work with the minimum of fuss.
If I were asked to recommend a company to complete almost any draughting or modelling work I would have to recommend Optimum and James.
Wishing you all the very best for the future, keep up the good work James.

We have been working with Optimum Design Services for some time now and they have always been efficient and provided us with bespoke projects where required with ease.

As a regular client of Optimum Design, I would like to say a big thankyou to James and his staff for the design backup and support this year.
When our in-house design is maxed out, we draw upon this excellent resource in order to keep our sales teams fed with good quality and accurate space-planning and 3D work.
Optimum's recent work for the Royal Society demonstrates their ability to take a brief and to produce top quality survey and design work. This enabled us to get back to client quickly with a good quality sales pitch and the job was won!
What more can I say!
