OUR SErVICES

We understand that every project is unique and that every client is different. Whilst we have detailed structure in our service packages, we also recognize that having a flexible approach on occasions allows the client to play as active a part in the construction of their new property as they may wish, whilst having our support to guide them along the way. 

We have tailored our services into 4 categories. Taken as a whole, the services within these categories typically provide a comprehensive approach from Design Stage 4 through to completion. However, some clients may want to manage some aspects themselves, or may have already instructed some of the services within these packages. Our flexible approach means that you can choose which of the services you require within these packages. For example were you to manage the pre-construction process yourself, and want some help at the point of starting the construction works, then that works for us as well. Wherever you want to us to start and end, we can accommodate your requirements.
