Contemporary Architecture | Traditional Craftsmanship
From humble houses to country estates, we turn your ideas into a reality.
With our diverse range of skills, we take on conservation repairs through to wholescale building alterations and new-build work.
Our approach is all about truly working together with you, to create and build your ambitions.
Being the best people you could work with is our aim, so you’re the centre of all we do.
We work closely with you and the wider project team*, to achieve the best design.
There’s a genuine openness with you, leaving far behind what can often be an adversarial relationship.
Rarely do buildings have all the budget they need. Our unique approach, knowledge and skill ensures you maximise that and ensure it’s focussed where it counts. This combined with a willingness to help resolve challenges, quicker decisions, fewer delays and lower costs are the results throughout all stages of the project.
Our collaborative approach and our ability to build a team relationship from the outset, is key to the success of your project. We get regular feedback telling us our way of working is “refreshing” and “a pleasure” which is rewarding to customers and designers alike.
Our tried and tested communication system gives you great peace of mind and ensures you are always involved and in the know.

Continuous training and apprenticeships:
Traditional skills are in decline and they need nurturing. We actively take on and encourage apprentices. We coach people in new skills and everyone has a development plan. We help staff gain qualifications and learn on site alongside qualified and experienced trades people, whilst supporting their college based or on-line training.
Scale in the building industry is important. Although our staple is larger projects, we strike a balance that allows us to be nimble enough to take on smaller scale work and yet our size brings financial stability and a range of skills that is demanded by larger projects.
Typically we are running 3-4 large projects at any one time with an average contract value of £250,000 to £2,000,000. These larger projects are regularly underpinned by a handful of smaller works which provide us with flexibility and safety for our staff and supply chain.
Small firms sometimes have difficulty financing projects. Our size and careful financial control removes this risk.
