Services

Detail from refurbishment of Queen Sq

I offer a service which is tailored to the client’s specific needs on small and medium sized projects which includes but is not limited to, the following :

Feasibility Studies, Brief Development, Space Planning, Planning applications, Listed Building Consent applications, Building Control applications, Contract Administration, Community consultation, Interior design and CDM consultancy.

My approach to any project of whatever scale and nature is to invest time in fully understanding the client’s needs and wishes, getting under the skin of any challenges so that these can be properly addressed in a creative and workmanlike manner. I will be clear at the outset as to what I can achieve and in what timescale and I make it my business to be approachable and available at all times to help in whatever way I can.

I have maintained good relationships with other related professional consultants within the construction industry and am able to call on their assistance when required.

CDM Services

I offer CDM consultancy work through my role as a consultant for CDM coordinators, Managing CDM Ltd of Harrogate. Since 1995 I have worked with their managing director Ted Jeffries, with whom I have developed a good working relationship on a considerable range of projects.
