Cost Advice

With the necessary focus on cost reduction and programme certainty, we know the importance of our role in providing our customers with value engineering, manufacturing capacity, build services, great products and exceptional service.


Realising the benefits

Through discussion and review of building specifications and works packages, we help developers and contractors realise the significant financial benefits available for building with our timber frame. We offer advice to support value engineering initiatives and ensure base costs are correct, to ensure materials specifications and allowances are not duplicated and follow-on trades clearly understand what they need to include in their packages. There are no hidden extras or surprises for our clients. They can realise the full cost benefits of working with timber frame compared to other systems of build.
