RA were chosen as they showed the best grasp of what was required by the
project. We were very happy with the work undertaken by RA. RA seem
to have the ability to get to a wide range of people and determine their views.
The method of gaining information was more “freeform” rather than rigidly
sticking to a questionnaire. Apart from a good piece of work, the RA staff
were very personable and easy to work with.”

Perhaps the best measure of our satisfaction is that we would not hesitate in calling on their services for any future project."
