We are able to consult directly with you, or your builders, throughout the process to assure that all work is being done correctly and to specifications.

 

We will provide a detailed work plan which we suggest your local team follows closely. We also want to be kept informed with regular photos of the site to ensure that everything is progressing as planned, and we can regularly visit the site as required.
