"At Share Scotland, we provide 24-hour support for people with complex learning and physical disabilities, so they can live in their own homes in the community that they choose.

As part of our future development, we wanted to ensure that our service users could access the highest quality activities in their local area, and our starting point was to build a state of the art Sensory Room for both their use and that of the wider disabled community.

Mike Ayres Design was recommended to us by Hazelwood School, and from the very first conversation with David, I knew we had made the right choice. Following a series of initial phone conversations, he came to visit us, and completely understood what we were trying to achieve. We only had a small space and a limited budget, and David managed to accommodate all our needs, for a very diverse group of users, within our finances.

The planning, design and installation of the room were all seemless, and all delivered with great efficiency, the build being completed 3 days earlier than quoted!

The room has been used by many of our service users and staff, and they have all commented on how easy it is to use, and how superior it is to other similar facilities. Even our most profoundly disabled users have really enjoyed the relaxation and particularly watching staff members leaping round the room bursting bubbles and squashing fruit!!

We would not hesitate to recommend Mike Ayres Design to anyone planning a similar development. From the very outset to the aftercare and training offered, they have been exceptionally professional, friendly, good value and a joy to work with."
