Through involvement at design stage we collaborate with the project team to ensure innovation creates the best possible environment for the client. We are continually developing and improving our operations through innovation and best practice, implemented via our Quality Management Systems.


Involvement at an early stage in the development of a project ensures that the requirements at each milestone are exceeded. Planning is key to the success of a project. Our Design and Projects teams take pride in ensuring the planning and preparation process is robust, adhered to and fulfilled to ensure project control is maximised. We can co-ordinate with other specialist trades like mechanical, data and security to ensure that your project runs smoothly and on time. Clients benefit as trades arrive only when needed and are not standing around waiting for others to finish.


Our design team provide a comprehensive design and build facility. Experienced design engineers assess each project on an individual basis, taking into consideration options that offer our clients the most cost effective and environmentally sustainable solutions. All relevant factors are calculated at the earliest opportunity to create bespoke design criteria for each project, resulting in improved build ability with greater focus on whole life cycle costing.


Our site-based directly employed workforce ensures that our quality and commitment is maintained to the highest standard. We operate within the healthcare, leisure, education, industrial, commercial and domestic markets. Our service capability includes; electrical installations, A/C installations, heating, ventilation, specialist lighting, data and comms systems, CCTV, access control, fire fighting systems, emergency lighting, security systems, lightning and surge protection, ground, air and water source heat generation systems, wind turbines, water harvesting and solar storage. To supplement mechanical and electrical services we provide in-house maintenance solutions.

Health & Safety

Health, safety and welfare are of the upmost importance to us. We ensure that we manage and maintain a safe environment for everyone who may be affected by our work. Our strategy is certified within a fully documented health and safety management system, which is rigorously implemented on and off-site and is subject to ongoing review.


Maintaining our innovative stance ensures that sustainable and energy saving technologies are employed throughout the building and design process. This ensures maximisation of resource conservation be this through services or building fabric design. We believe that, whenever possible, we should strive to ensure renewable energy resources are employed throughout the buildings on which we work.
