Construction Services

We create beautifully built, statement homes with a high quality finish and meticulous attention to detail.

Needed for this stage: I have technical drawings

Building is more than just stacking bricks; it's about creating a harmonious process where every component seamlessly integrates with the next.

Our approach goes beyond merely following a design. We take great care to carry out ‘joined up’ building work, meticulously coordinating different suppliers, subcontractors, and trades to ensure a cohesive whole. Your project evolves step-by-step, each phase enhancing and refining the final result.

We take pride in not just meeting but exceeding the original design expectations through thoughtful adjustments and improvements along the way.

How does it work?


Cost review and contracts

We start with a detailed cost review and use it to finalise a Contract Sum (i.e. how much it will cost) and formal building contract, such as the JCT Design & Build Contract, to make sure all parties fully understand the goals, timelines and budget.


Site setup and construction stage

Once everything is in place, we set up your site and commence construction, turning plans into reality.


On-site supervision

A dedicated Construction Supervisor is present throughout the build to ensure safety, efficiency, and adherence to project specifications. They’ll also make sure we are keeping the neighbours fully updated and on-side throughout.


Final inspections

After construction, we conduct thorough final inspections and address any issues before you move in. We will not sign off on a home until we are happy that it reflects our reputation for the highest quality.



Upon completion, we provide you with keys and codes, and a Building Manual. This will help you now as you move in, and in the future should you decide to do any additional work or sell the property.



Our Design and Build Contracts allow for an Aftercare Period of up to 12 months, during which time, any shrinkage cracks or other typical new building snagging will be remedied for you.
