Room Design, Acoustic Consultancy in the UK. Any recommendations?

We have control room in a space that is enormously awkward architecturally. The space was converted into a studio by DACS Audio many years ago & they installed a number of large absorbers at that time. Last year we added a number of Real Traps broadband absorbers to further tame the room and specifically to level the bass. This is as much as we feel we can do ourselves & we now want to bring in someone to assess the whole situation and build upon the work we have already done.

Can anyone in the UK give any suggestions & or recommendations about who we should be talking to?

Thanks in advance,

I'd like to keep it below £4k all in, if at all possible. That should include all materials & consultancy costs. I realise that for a really good job this figure may be unrealistic & we may revise it upwards if & when we have to.

Basically we want to identify problem frequencies (we already know some of these) and deal with them (tuned absorption?), kill an annoying flutter echo (we could do this ourselves by mounting one of our mondo traps on a ceiling/wall corner but if we are paying someone to come in why not let them deal with it?) and attempt to widen our sweet spot (our listening position is currently asymmetrically placed within the room but this is a conscious decision).

We are looking for someone who has the analytical acoustics qualifications but also the practical studio/installation experience.

Andy Monroe, not sure of a number for him, but every time I come across things he's done, I've been impressed.
