Sally Ruel aims to make a creative analysis of clients requirements, initiating dialogue at an early stage to establish cost, programming and design objectives, with the aim of creating buildings that are appropriate to their purpose, sensitive to their context and have a low impact on the environment. She is well versed in managing the complexities of the building process, guiding clients through the maze of issues associated with getting a project built.
