We are at your service

We invest time at the early stages of a project to listen to and fully understand the client’s ambition, so that we can tailor our contribution accordingly. Our most common services are summarised below.

From feasibility and concept to schematic and detailed design we are ready to join a project at any stage and have extensive experience in seeing the construction administration role through to successful completion.

We approach every project as a unique opportunity, knowing that one size does not fit all. We like to push boundaries and challenge the norm, we like to innovate and test different options, but ultimately we like to know that the system we’ve specified has the most appropriate balance of cost and quality for the Client’s ambition.

Many of our engineers have multi-disciplinary backgrounds and our graduate development scheme promotes exactly that, as we believe having a deep understanding of all disciplines results in designs that are more robust and better coordinated.

As the demand for global connectivity continues to grow, so has our experience in commissioning management of mission critical facilities. From the smaller distributed server rooms integrated within commercial real estate to the vast data halls of hyperscale colocation providers delivered over multiple phases, our approach is consistent and our goal is clear: to power up with confidence.

Whilst the foundation to our approach begins with a methodical, compliance-driven process, for us the key to a successfully commissioned building is dialogue. That is, acknowledging each stakeholder as an expert in their field, appreciating their point of view and establishing a common ground on which to build a path to success. In other words, we put collaboration at the heart of our approach.

We are familiar with the many third party and owner provided digital platforms available to aid commissioning management and happily adopt them as required by the specific project, but we also use tools we’ve developed to complement those being used by the wider team.
When it comes to successful project delivery, the busiest period often coincides with the most difficult, final stretch of the project, when prior project delays may compound the already intense pressure of meeting the programme. The challenge at this point is to overcome these pressures collectively, resolve issues professionally and to deliver a project that the whole team can be proud of.
