As a business, we continue to look for ways to lower construction costs, wastage, emissions and time and strive to provide our clients with an exceptional experience.
Established in 1974, our experience is wide ranging. We began as a steel fabricator, constructing frames for major clients like Experian, Nottingham Trent University and Tesco. We grew our business alongside our counterparts, expanding our knowledge and product range and furthering our influence.
In early 2007, we diversified, moving into the engineered timber industry. This change saw our business grow rapidly - we began building a number of supermarkets for environmentally conscious retailers. Since them, we've worked on a vast array of projects including multi-national commercial HQ's and large-scale residential developments. To date we’ve worked on some of the UK’s most innovative, sustainable projects. Whilst we continue to work with steel, we’re now the market leader for CLT and hybrid construction projects.
