“I would like to say how much we all appreciated your advice at the recent training session. Your experience in the construction industry allied to your acute understanding of how to get behind the questions and analyse what they are really asking was impressive.I have already agreed with my co-directors that we will show you any bids that we make in the future to ensure we have the best chance of ‘winning’.
So thank you for your time and expertise. You were honest and straightforward which is what we needed very badly.”

John Marsh, Director, MEB Architects

 

“Nicola Dibb Associates recently assisted me with pre-qualification submissions for two very important framework opportunities that we had targeted. The service provided by Nicola and her colleague Emmeline was excellent throughout and commenced with a very useful meeting to agree target dates for release of information for incorporation into the submission. Nicola promoted ideas which without doubt enhanced the quality of the document in terms of its content and design and led to us successfully qualifying for the invitation to tender on both occasions. I would definitely recommended Nicola Dibb Associates to others who are looking to improve the quality of their submissions”.

Dean Elvridge, Pre-Construction Director, Jenner Construction

Nicola and Emmeline helped me enormously in choosing a company logo and layout for my site, and the finished product is exactly what I was after (in fact it far exceeded my expectations).  I found Nicola highly professional and very easy to talk to throughout the period of engagement. All in all a great service, great value for money and I would not hesitate to recommend.”

Her role involved directing the design development to produce a viable scheme, agreeing the mix with the RP to maximise values, scoping the content of the application and inviting consultant bids for the various reports & surveys for the application. Nicola carries out her role diligently, timeously and with good humour. I would not hesitate to recommend her for a similar role.”
