I have always been very impressed with Abacus when they have delivered our football projects across the country. They are very knowledgeable across a range of disciplines, provide strong project management and respond to our needs at a local and national level. I would highly recommend them to others

Mukherjee-Neale - Head of Facilities Amateur Swimming Association

It was a complicated and challenging process for us but you and your team helped us along. Putting us in touch with Abacus was a tremendous boost to our project, at a stage where we felt very much out of our depth. Abacus were most patient but maintained high standards throughout, meaning that we now have a very relevant and meaningful facility

Simon Dobson Chairman of Tyne Rowing Club

Abacus have assisted Carlisle City Council with some of their more complex and complicated construction projects in recent years. The team at Abacus have a down-to-earth and straightforward approach which is refreshing and confidence inspiring. They have consistently provided expert advice and support and identified solutions which have not only helped to deliver the Council’s outcomes but have also driven significant savings for the authority in the process. I won’t hesitate to work with Abacus in the future.
