Why choose us for Design and Construct

Often we hear stories of clients who have had their plans drawn up and sent to council and been approved, however once quotes have come in they are well and truly over budget. This is why we started our Design and Construct service. We were being asked to quote for jobs which were never going to go ahead as they had been over designed, designed without the clients budget in mind or without knowledge of actual building costs. This wasted everyone's valuable time and money. 

With our design and construct service, we try to  ensure this cost blowout doesn't happen. Paul liaises with our draftsman and architect through the design phase, producing a Preliminary estimate early in the concept design stage to check the price of the design as it is before approvals are obtained. Allowing for any modifications before approvals are attained. 

Then, in the Fixed Price Cost Analysis stage, we use all the documentation produced to send to our suppliers and contractors. We shop around for the best pricing and do a detailed take off to produce an accurate fixed cost to carry out the build. 

Choosing us for Design and Construct also ensures you are locked into our build timeline, knowing that our Design and Construct clients are our priority.
