Last year was a great year for us as a local building firm undertaking a whole array of projects in both the domestic and commercial sectors. As a company we have been able to diversify to ensure we keep up with the latest in technology and green building techniques. This diversity has laid us to a new path. We have been very successful with local school works and this is a direction that I wish to push through. Whilst this is all very exciting I also wish to point out that we are still committed to serving our local community and hope to enjoy success with all those who may require our services.
