Specifications for work such as roof renewal, concrete repair, exterior upgrades such as curtain walling, balcony renewal and general decoration are prepared, quotations obtained and the work inspected as it proceeds.

Complying with CDM 2015 will help ensure that no-one is harmed during the work, and that the building is safe to use and maintain while giving you good value.

Effective planning will also help ensure that your work is well managed with fewer unexpected costs and problems.
