ABOUT THE PRACTICE

Successful schemes are built on good communications. At the start of every project we work closely with our clients to achieve a thorough understanding of the building user’s requirements. We investigate the context of proposed developments and analyse the constraints, co-ordinate input from other consultants and develop effective designs that meet the aspirations of our clients.

On projects where we are providing a full service through to completion we use our extensive knowledge of historic, traditional and contemporary construction techniques and provide complete and co-ordinated production information for tender. We believe that this gives a project the best chance for effective cost and programme control. We have a high success rate in delivering projects on time and within budget. We achieve this by paying particular attention to pre-contract programming, efficient management of our resources and of other disciplines, comprehensive tender information and practical methods of building.

We are not actively recruiting at the moment but are always interested in receiving CVs from people with talent and enthusiasm.
