Tom recently completed a trail network of 4km of new trails in Lochore Meadows Country Park where his involvement began with a proposal in 2014 right through to the detailed design and consultant during the build phase with the project completed in March 2017.

Tom has a very professional approach to all aspects of his work.  He is thorough in preparation, communicates promptly and clearly and ensures that all aspects of a project are well thought through.

Over the past few years he has developed a good network of contacts in the area of trail building and so you can be confident his work is up to date with best practise.

We appointed Tom as the consultant for our trail project as it was important to have someone we could trust to head up and lead the project but also who would keep us fully informed and involve us in decision making when relevant.  Tom fulfilled this and delivered the project on time and on budget.  For these reasons I would be very happy to recommend him for future projects.

Auchenblae Parks Committee have just completed a pump track / bike trail around the football pitch in Auchenblae.  The committee had the initial idea for the track and raised funding from a number of sources to pay for the work.  We then had the good fortune to engage with Collective Trax and Tom Durham.  Tom took our initial design ideas and worked with us to finalise the layout / structure of the tracks.  Tom also recommended the grounds work contractor and supervised the work during the planning, construction and completion of the track.  The work was completed on time and below budget, with no HSE issues.

As a village and a committee we are extremely happy with the work done by Collective Trax.  The trails have been open since the start of the summer holidays and have been very well used with very positive feedback from everyone.

Collective Trax were appointed to carry out a feasibility study for our mountain bike trail centre project as a result of a competitive tender exercise. We appointed them on the basis of a very strong tender submission and frankly, we consider ourselves hugely fortunate to have done so.

Their level of dedication, expertise and enthusiasm were extraordinary. Our feasibility study was crucial to our project, it assessed both the best location for our facility and the means of ensuring financial viability. Collective Trax very quickly realised that our plans needed a substantial revision and, backed with evidence gained from other projects and from considerable research and analysis, they outlined a bold, ambitious, financially sustainable development which also still met all of our initial goals.

We would highly recommend them to all engaged in similar projects to ours.
