…is where we truly excel in knowledge and experience. These are our must haves for building regulations and specifications;

Always go for full plans approval for the Building Regulations, we don’t want any costly surprises when work begins and this gives us the option to amend the design if issues are highlighted by building control before we get to site.

A clear specification and architectural design is worth its weight on gold to a project, this means contractors can provide a clear and considered estimate. Too many grey areas will lead to cover pricing and variations on site.
