The key to every successful project is clearly defining what you want constructed, how you want the works to be carried out, and of course how much it will cost you.
It sounds really straightforward, but we see many projects where clients change their minds during construction on site, which leads to overruns of costs, overruns of timescales and issues with contractors.
By utilising our clear and effective Project Management we make sure you avoid any pitfalls.
We can assist with a custom designed package, which can include various elements such as detailed design and specification, supplier and contractor selection, contract negotiation and payment scheduling. This should all be completed prior to commencement on site.
And when you have a project management plan, if required we can also assist with your site management.

That is the required standard of works – and begins with the detailed design of the project.
This will include the external structure together with any foundations and perhaps really importantly the internal requirements – as basic as a power socket or as involved as the new kitchen fitting.
This process is important as it affects greatly the overall cost of the project. We can help with the detailed design and guide on budgetary costings, which in turn may well affect the design required.
