We pride ourselves in being a ‘hands on’ traditional style builder, with a pro-active positive way of working, we strive to maintain a practical, sensible approach to achieving a final successful project.
We are used to working to high standards of finish and consistently achieve high & accurate levels of finish when it comes to achieving accurate detailing, something which is expected by our demanding clients and the architects we work with. Take a few minutes to look at some of out past projects which illustrate the high degree of finish we consistently produce. We have a great deal of experience in most building issues and are on hand before, during and after a contract is completed, we can quickly offer alternative construction techniques, suppliers and costs.
We also put great effort into post contract matters and deal with any issues efficiently and as quickly as possible; we realise that it is often small issues that concern clients on a project and so we give these the same level of attention as any other All our work is generally under standard RIBA contracts, we carry full contractors all risks liability cover and our track record shows no building works claims, ever.
