BRIGHTSPACE ARCHITECTS

 

 

'Hi there, I visited your shop yesterday morning and was really pleased with the customer service I received, previously the day before I was in Hatton Garden looking for metal and people were very blunt and rude to me, possibly because I was a student and asking for price checks.'

'The employees in your shop were very helpful and also behind the till, where I was given advice about a student card and my products where well packaged. I felt the need to let you know, it was a pleasure visiting your shop and I will be re visiting and recommending to others.'

'I just wanted to email you to say thank you for delivering my order so quickly! I placed my order (for 10 Obeche sheets) yesterday afternoon and was delighted that it arrived today!

I am overall very impressed with the service - I also had to phone yesterday to check I had ordered the correct sized wood and was dealt with politely and efficiently by the gentleman who answered the phone.

I am self employed making and selling dolls house furniture and I'm currently working on a book of tutorials, which is being released later this year, so I order a lot of wood and will definitely being ordering from you again!'

IVAN (PIE ARCHITECTURE)

 

I wanted to write and thank you for your help in selecting materials for my daughter's art project.

She is entering a number if pieces for a year 9 art scholarship at her school in Northamptonshire.

The scholarship involved her picking a theme and entering 12 pieces; 6 of which have to be done at home in her spare time.

She chose the Olympics as her theme and as one of the pieces, she elected to construct a scale model of the NHS bed(s) used in Danny Boyle's opening ceremony.

On your advice, we used styrene rods and strips, as well as a low watt light bulb and power pack to add authenticity by creating a lamp above the bed.

We have now finished the bed and have only the mattress to construct.

Thanks for your advice and overall customer service.

SIMON HAMMERSCHMIDT

 

 

'Many thanks for the laser etched floor you've just done for us at the National Theatre.
We're really pleased with it.'

WILL

 

 

'I've looked far and wide for miniature trees for my sculptures, these are by far the most realistic I've found. Many others I've seen are let down by cheap trunks that just look like coiled wire and 'leaves' that moult. These are so far from that, beautiful and surprisingly durable.' (50mm Oak tree)

'This is great stuff (Styrofoam LB-X) easy to cut with a craft knife or hacksaw , I'm using it for the basis of a model railway layout cut away the outer edges and you have a remarkable rock face, and on top of that It was delivered less than 24 hours after making the order great stuff 4D'

STEVE HYDE

 

 

As a long time user of 4D's trees I can honestly say I have found nothing that comes close, and I've tried just about every manufacturer in the World!'

MR. A. McDIAMOND
