It’s all about getting as much planned up front as possible. Meticulously going through every detail with you, our client. From budgets, drawings, planning and regulations, down to the colours of the door handles.
This way there are fewer hiccups along the way. And if there are any issues, our team will do everything to get them sorted, we believe it’s worth it to do the job right. Are we verging on obsessive? We hope so.
We offer end-to-end services including Design & Planning, Plumbing & Heating and Electrical & Lighting meaning we have an overview of the entire project. What does this mean for you? Control of the budgets and programme and continuity of teams and standards. We always consider the bigger picture.
A drive for quality and excellence doesn’t mean a thing if you don’t have the people to carry it out. We’re lucky to have a team who all share the same commitment to delivering the best experience and results to our customers.
Building is in my blood. My father was in the building trade before me, and the principals of honesty and quality he held are what make us who we are today.
For me it’s all about passion and morals. From giving clients clear and transparent tenders, to not resting until every tiny detail of a build is perfect. The team around me feel the same way.
They’re like-minded people who would rather go that extra mile to deliver on everything, than cut their losses and deliver something not quite right. I think that’s refreshing in the building sector and I hope you do too.
