Peter H Lord CMIOSH - Project Manager at Pure Leisure Group

"Since joining Pure Leisure in November 2012 I have had the pleasure of working with Peak Associates. I have mainly worked with the local officer Jo Matthew who I have found to be professional, knowledgeable, friendly and very helpful and has always been very quick to respond to any queries I have had."

Sue Robinson - School Business Manager at the Dingle County Primary School

"Please pass on my thanks to all the people involved. They were great ambassadors for Peak Associates and carried out the necessary investigative work efficiently and professionally."

Bridget Jones - Business Manager at Disley Primary School

"Peak Associates were very good and supportive during our problems with storm drains owned by United Utilities. They liaised with United Utilities and Cheshire East Council and ourselves until the matter was resolved successfully."

Paul Webb - Operations Manager at the Conway Centre

"We have been working with Peak Associates since the installation of a reed bed on the Conway Centre site in 2009. They acted as consultants for the project which proved to be very successful, enabling the effluent discharge to consistently meet EA consent limits. Since completion of the reed bed project, consultants from Peak Associates carry out regular site visits to monitor quality of effluent and operation of associated pumping systems, proactively providing advice and guidance. We are extremely pleased with the service they provide and value our ongoing relationship."
