Our Services

The range of services we offer includes Feasibility & Design, Planning Applications & Building Regs. Not all jobs are the same and we tailor the service to suit the job.

We start with a free, no-obligation initial consultation to discuss the project you have in mind. This includes advice on the scope and feasibility of the project, the Planning issues in connection with the proposal and an idea of the design and construction timetable. After that, we will provide a fee estimate based on your requirements.

Get in touch and we can discuss your particular project.
