“Nina and Co worked closely with Kent Union, the University of Kent and the design team to bring together all the concepts and ideas and collate these into a single brand identity for the building.
Nina was able to bring a vast knowledge of experience and expertise to the design table and this resulted in a building that exceeded all expectations and has become a place that students, staff and visitors are drawn to across the campus.
Nina also worked closely with the team developing a detailed brief and performance specification for all of the equipment in the bar, kitchen and shop and this was extremely challenging, as the budget was very tight. I would not hesitate to recommending Nina and Co and any future projects at the University of Kent.”
Neil Hornsey Senior Building Surveyor & Project Manager, Kent University.
