We draw on this expertise to respond to imaginatively to new challenges.

Feasibility Studies

Feasibility Studies

At the start of each project we work with you to gain an in-depth understanding of the proposed development’s benefits and costs, ultimately determining the viability of the project. We can:

– identify any reasons for a project not to proceed
– outline alternatives
– mitigate potential risks
– determine critical paths for successful completion


Design & Build

Ask us to control the entire job. We can contract and commission the architecture and deliver the project, increasing efficiency across the board and gaining optimum budget control.


Design and Engineering

Our expertise and experience inform our approach to every project. We strive to:

– reduce the project cost wherever possible
– increase time and cost certainties
– deliver sustainable solutions
– improve health and safety
– ensure productive whole life costs

M & E

Value Engineering

Throughout each project, we look for opportunities to increase value – and never at the expense of quality. Where possible, we’ll suggest alternative materials and methods which will either outperform the material specified or provide the same performance, but at a lower cost to you.

Principal Contractor

Our focus is on delivering your project on time, on budget and to the highest level. We liaise with you and the architect and ensure all direct contractors and sub-contractors work to an agreed programme, complying and taking responsibility for all health and safety and insurance policies. And to make it even easier for you, when the project has been completed, we provide a comprehensive User Manual for the site.



We enjoy teaming up with developers and landowners to deliver projects to everyone’s benefit. By taking an equity stake in a project, we share the risks and rewards. And with substantial experience in design, construction and asset management, we can significantly reduce the risk associated with developments.
