"An invaluable tool to the Guardian II expansion and extension project was L&F's contacts with key business and community leaders. They have a wealth of knowledge, can evaluate any situation and then develop strategies for making things happen. Equally invaluable was L&F's monitoring of the media and the sentiment of the residents in the area and providing real time assessment and direction for dealing with areas of concern. In addition, the critical review of project related issues, and personal relationships with the staff at L&F brought value to the project and made my job as project manager more enjoyable and successful."
