What you need to know

Once you are ready to begin your construction project – be aware that you will be making a significant investment with a building company. You should expect that investment to be respected and reflected in the level of service provided. Understanding of the complexities of the building industry will help find the right professionals to work with.

When it comes to pricing you will want accurate costs and an honest appraisal of work discussed with your builder. The same applies when you ask how long the job may take – with potentially unforeseen tasks discussed early. A considered opinion is vital so that you make appropriate arrangements. You should expect to be kept informed, updated, and on track every step of the way.

When appointing your designers and building contractors you not just ‘employing labour’ – you are entering into a partnership. Real craftsmen enjoy what they do and want to get the best out of each job they are involved in.
