Construction project Management company

As a leading construction project management company covering London and the South of England, we’re often out and about meeting and talking with other industry specialists and potential clients.

We attend Grand Designs Live and Build It Live as their building project management experts. We give talks on the best way to keep your building project on schedule or project manage your self-build at places like the National Self Build & Renovation Centre in Swindon. We lecture at workshops on building sustainability into your construction project designs, green energy and renewables, energy efficiency and how to cut your home’s future running costs. We’re also frequently asked to give construction cost advice on topics such as how to control your building project spend and cut construction costs.
