«Working with Sue on the Cancer Care Courtyard at York Hospital was extremely easy and enjoyable. Sue's approach to issues arising onsite was practical and pragmatic but she never lost sight of the final design. We look forward to working with her in the future.»

«I really enjoyed working with Sue. She was always friendly, helpful and willing to listen to new ideas and suggestions. It was a huge project to manage and I feel she did it both efficiently and professionally at all times. I wouldn't hesitate in working with her again.»

«She has at every stage made good choices of supporting elements to arrive at a simple, dignified design that answers the need for a peaceful, reflective space tucked into the centre of a busy hospital.»

«Her experience and professionalism was second to none and I felt we... definitely learned a lot from her. It was a constant pleasure to work with her and her attention to detail... will remain one of the real strengths of this project.»

«Sue has a real love of gardens and landscape and is fantastically knowledgeable and professional to work with - highly recommended!»
