Consistent Results

Designs that work for your client and budget.

We produce detailed, traceable documentation including plans, elevations, and schematics that are reviewed for approval by client representatives and relevant stakeholders.

These become construction-issue documents used to verify compliance as the project progresses.

Where necessary we use our established processes to formally clarify requirements.


Manufacturer relationships, built over decades.

Our strong relationships with manufacturers ensure best value for money, and access to an unrivalled service and support experience.

Safe, professionally qualified installation teams.

At commencement of the project, a  dedicated project manager and designer will be assigned. They will attend all of the major site/design team meetings and ensure the preparation of all required information in advance of meetings.

The project manager is responsible for leading our team of experienced installation engineers and electricians through to completion.

All of our project managers and site supervisors have undertaken IOSH SSTS/SSMS training and they ensure the safety of our team and co-ordination with other trades and contractors.

Electrical and mechanical installation is carried out by qualified, experienced team members.


Tested and commissioned by experts.

Our engineering team verify compliance with specifications using documents created and approved in the design stage, augmented by change requests as the project develops.

Senior project engineers and project managers oversee the testing and commissioning process prior to handover.

Testing of functional blocks is carried out as they are installed, and protected until testing and commissioning is carried out on a system-wide basis.
