VISION: “Buildings without foundations of thought, are only temporary, buildings with foundation of thought have a life purpose.” Garry J Taylor

Our aim is to ensure our clients’ project expectations are achieved through maintaining clarity & accuracy and ensuring timely delivery & quality throughout the service we provide.

We actively encourage our clients and partners to undertake sustainable design and construction. The solution is through innovation. The key to maintaining effective corporate responsibility is by adopting sound scientific principles and incorporating new energy efficient methods & technologies in practical ways into your construction methods.

We participate in collaboration through ‘partnering’ with the supply chain, ensuring team members understand the project’s mutually agreed aims and objectives from the start.

The highest level of communications throughout the life of the project, making full use of technology, enhances our service delivery and ensures client satisfaction.

Our philosophy is a simple one, Communication is key!

Our service is founded on some essential themes:

We make SENSE, We keep it SIMPLE, We keep it RELEVANT. We facilitate SUCCESS.

Our approach is to underpin our service by maintaining the critical flow of communications, separating planned from operational activities and by retaining clarity of the roles & responsibilities, through effective direction, management & delivery of our service.

By continuing to communicate even when problems or issues arise, when most are looking for someone to blame, we are looking for solutions. It is critical to improve and build the team’s skill and ability to problem solve, which will undoubtedly lead to greater efficiency. This approach helps to break down traditional barriers, providing a boost to morale and productivity.

In the end, all projects and services can be reduced to three words:


Unless you’ve got the right people, you can’t do much with the other two. Make sure we are your people.
