Client Testimonials


“I just wanted to thank you for the installation of our new boilers. It’s a very professional install of a high standard and we are very pleased with the end result. The whole process was the smoothest, trouble free operation and the best I have experienced at this school. I hope to work with you again in the future and wish you well.”

Neil Fowler, Premises Manager – St Cecilia’s Catholic Primary School



“Synergy have a detailed knowledge of the BET estate and always respond speedily to any request for information or action. They have access to a wide network of approved contractors so are able to provide a range of competitive tenders for every project, no matter what size or complexity. This year, Synergy have successfully tendered for and project managed works ranging in value from £10k to £500k. Schools, and the central trust team, are always kept fully up to date with the progress of each project, and where issues arise, they are dealt with swiftly and efficiently. I would have no hesitation in recommending Synergy to any MAT seeking specialist support with their estate.”

Robert Isaac, Project Manager – Bourne Education Trust


“I would also like to say how please we have been with the management of the project over the summer and now, it is refreshing to have a consultant who visited the site regularly and still will, and always responds to any issue! Thank you.”

Heritage, Culture and Community

“We have worked with Synergy over the past three years – delivering a museum in Somerset. My experience of Synergy has been nothing short of stupendous! The team work hard, deliver to deadlines, provide balanced and well-rounded cost advise [for both large strategic ideas / options as well as detailed changes / amends], but most importantly to me is the ‘part of the same team pushing in the same direction’ approach to being the client’s independent QS is exactly what is needed when building any project out. We had fun, worked hard, dealt with issues carefully and professionally as they arose and delivered the building on time and on budget. Since delivering the Museum, Synergy have become our first recommendation to our clients for independent QS services. We are currently working on four further projects with them and experiencing exactly the same level of service, advice and professionalism. I can’t recommend them highly enough! “

Nicola du Pisanie, Partner – Stonewood Design



“I have had the pleasure of working with Synergy on and off for the past four years. The service they have provided to us in respect of drawing up a Masterplan, and more recently this year revisiting our Masterplan with a revised brief has been second to none.  Nothing is ever too much trouble, and most importantly for me, they are passionate and genuine about what they do and I thus have great confidence in their work.”

Sasha Stagg, Bursar – Salisbury Cathedral School


“The Stowe House Preservation Trust has worked with Bare Leaning and Bare for over ten years and their professional advice has served us well through one of the most extensive and costly restorations of any English country house. In the course of our work, we have delivered over £20m worth of restoration projects to the highest standards of quality, within budget and to timescales that enable us to continue running a major independent boarding school within a Grade I listed building. Synergy Bare Leaning and Bare’s advice is always considered, timely and accurate and they are an excellent company with whom to work.”

Nick Morris, Chief Executive Officer – Stowe House Preservation Trust


“The staff with whom I have worked at Synergy Bare, Leaning & Bare have an excellent and well-grounded understanding of historic buildings, which is vital to performing well in this field. They have consistently demonstrated a thorough-going attention to detail. I have found them very efficient in delivery, even when under pressure to produce tender documents in tight timescales. This is a highly professional firm, and always a reliable source of independent, objective cost advice.”

Nick Hill, National Conservation Projects Manager – English Heritage

“We now have a sports hall which is the envy of many and it is by no small measure because of the professionalism of Synergy, who also brought in on budget and on time.”

Malcolm Hunt, Project Manager, Queens School


“Synergy was engaged by us to project manage the development of a £15m leisure centre. They provided a thoroughly professional service, constantly demonstrating full commitment to our project. Additionally, Synergy coordinated the work of the design team and the main contractor in a friendly manner, making the whole project an enjoyable experience. I would certainly engage Synergy on future projects.”
