I shyed away from fire stopping it all and was trying to get various bricklayers to patch in, I wish I had just done the lot in fire stopping now! There is more to do and we will call you in again in a couple of weeks Hopefully you travel outside the London area and we can work together on other projects, thanks again.

We think we had the right mix of staff there and they all appreciated the experience, expertise and knowledge which you both provided. The structure of the presentation was excellent (despite our local technical difficulties!!) and the well-researched practical exercise, using the on-site fire doors, at the end was the perfect completion to an excellent morning.
