Claire Washington - Parmarbrook


I worked with Phill for the last couple of years at Parmarbrook, a structural engineering consultancy based in London. We worked on various projects together where he developed structural drawings from preliminary to construction. The projects were typically complex refurbishment of existing buildings, but there were also various new buildings and developments. I really enjoyed working with Phill and would recommend him to anyone.
