“RNJ were lead consultant designer and contract administrator on the internal refurbishment and external repairs to the Holy Jesus Hospital. They were very professional and efficient in ensuring the project was delivered on time and within the budget, whilst ensuring the work was sufficiently detailed and implemented in a sensitive manner in keeping with the historic nature of a building of this significance.”

RNJ provided a very professional service and proved to be very flexible and responsive in terms of addressing issues at short notice, they fully understood the processes and procedures required by English Heritage and provided a highly professional service. RNJ also kept to their original fee bid. This project was delivered within the originally advised budget and within the agreed programme.”


Rievaulx Abbey – Visitor Centre and Interpretation Project
“RNJ are again employed to provide full QS and CDMC services for this project. To date the scheme has achieved GW1 approval. RNJ have again provided an extremely professional and flexible service to date working closely with the design team (and a range of wider interested parties) on this challenging project and have significantly contributed towards the development of an acceptable scheme design through the production of numerous financial option appraisals. Again RNJ have kept within their originally tendered fee and have proved to react extremely quickly to numerous client requests for information at late notice.
