How the process works

As a Main Contractor, it is our job to manage your project for you, taking away all the anxiety of programming, managing trades and suppliers and mitigating issues. We also manage your expectations and guide you through the decision-making processes, giving you clear timelines for information you need to provide, such as which light fittings or who will supply the kitchen.

Typically, a project would follow seven stages:

Stage one: Our initial meeting – to discuss the project, your aims, your budget, your timeline
Stage two: We will provide a budget sum based on the drawings and specification available
Stage three: We tweak specifications and prices to arrive at an agreed figure
Stage four: A date is agreed and a contract is signed
Stage five: Commencement of works on site
Stage six: A period of about two weeks for snagging the completed building
Stage seven: Handover of the keys
