CPD Testimonial

“The team here found Jack’s presentation insightful and enjoyable. The honest review of past experiences offer a generous level of knowledge sharing for us to build upon in future designs. In particular, Jack shares his obvious passion and care for detailing and testing while a useful segment of the CPD provided critical appraisals and physical examples of materials and finishes along with honest reviews of how they fair with wear. Above all, his explanations of bespoke details for particular finishes provide the specifier and designer with the tools to achieve quality.”
