We have an extensive network of collaborative partners that we’ve worked with many times. We often call in specialist expertise where it is needed and we’re happy to broaden this network to include other partners according to the needs of the project. We are very happy to discuss this approach at any time.
We’ve been using the name Mantes® since 2005. We love the deeper meaning behind this name and we believe that it captures so much of our DNA. Our logo was designed by an illustrator that we’ve worked with many times; it tells a story of how we build impressive teams that are capable of extraordinary things.

He has a natural and inclusive leadership style that brings out the best in others while keeping complex projects on track and an eye on the needs of all wider stakeholders.
