How we help you create buildings you’ve always dreamed of …

Value Engineering (VE)

Focusing on the various ‘functions’ of your building and its components, we identify and remove unnecessary costs while maintaining - even enhancing - its performance. Blending extensive knowledge of all forms of timber structure, with building science, regulations, state of the art products, your design concepts, and end user demands, we deliver highly effective, quality solutions for projects large & small. Including difficult to develop sites, like soft ground, steeply sloping land and potential flood plain areas.

Design & Build (D&B)

For us, Value Engineering starts with environmental planning and regulatory impositions as part of our analytical and technical design processes. These feed through a drive for sustainable development into waste reduction, recycling and lean manufacture to embrace a ‘Pride in the Job’, ‘Right First Time’ mentality. In turn this encourages the protected delivery of high quality products, and results in time saving on-site build programmes. All of this reduces costs, enhances your project, and enables us to be the most competitive FULL SERVICE timber engineering D&B group in the UK

Integrated Specifications

The Value Engineering of Design & Build solutions integrates selection of the most appropriate products, services and methods with the process. Working closely with building designers, engineers and quantity surveyors, we help select and specify those which are most functionally appropriate and cost effective.

Key Current Considerations

Our ‘Fabric First” approach to designing the most effective Building Envelopes is informed by the need to deliver highly energy efficient structures with optimum levels of insulation, minimal thermal transmission and appropriate airtightness. In the drive toward Zero Carbon and Minimal Heating requirements we offer factory Insulated Panels, SIP’s, Green Oak, Post & Beam, Glulam and Hybrid structures to achieve Code 4, 5, 6 and Passiv Haus Standards.

Comprehensive Supplies

Potentially, the procurement of design specific components can create unforeseen difficulties, for example locating the source of supplies, avoiding delays in delivery lead times, quality assurance, and securing ‘best value’ products and terms. Here our long established connections, manufacturer and merchant access, and volume buying capabilities all enable us to secure and supply such requirements in the most timely and competitive manner as part of our VE, D&B approach.

Professional Teamwork

Believing that our approach to helping you create the “Buildings you’ve always dreamed of …” is distinctly different, we welcome collaboration with other construction professionals. In doing so, our aim is to help enhance the construction team of Architects, other designers, engineers, quantity surveyors, contractors, house-builders, developers, et al, to deliver what they and their clients both need and want. And, if end user clients like self-builders and home improvers lack any of these, to be the catalyst drawing in those that are most appropriate for their project. To this end we offer a selective, part or full Project Management Service.

Partnering & Joint Ventures

While we are happy to engage in ‘one off’ projects, the greatest benefits to industry and end user occupiers come from the establishment of long term ‘partnering’ style arrangements with other construction professionals. This can include Joint Venture arrangements for specific developments and can be of interest to land owners and those who wish to fund, say, housing schemes but lack the technical knowledge and industry experience necessary to make these successful. In such cases our comprehensive team approach can be highly successful.
