Wow! What a six months that's been! Who could have guessed it, just when some of the more influential countries in the world were thinking of going it alone...along comes a tiny virus to show us just how dependant we all are on each other.

It's the start of a new year and a new decade. A time to look back on achievements made and make plans for the future, as best we can. This month also marks Ollio's 4th birthday, a milestone that comes with a lot of pride in what has been achieved so far, and excitement at what is yet to come in continuance of the vision to improve building design and in use performance for users of buildings.

Our first Agile project is now up and running. We can’t say who our client is with just yet, we still need to respect their confidentiality. However, what we can say is that already the method is looking magnificent. The business we are working with expects to move to a new Cat A office sometime during the summer of 2017.
