We very rarely provide a black building, so we were interested to see how this turned out. It actually looks very smart finished with Thermowood cladding and stained black. The

We’ll always reach out for our customers, sometimes with a crane!

This was an interesting installation of a straightforward building, like undertaking keyhole surgery at arm’s length. The independent boys school had a small available area measuring just 13m by 5m, into which we inserted a 12m by 3.6m building containing two group teaching areas. About as tight as it comes! Trees had to be trimmed, power and BT lines

Despite 30 years experience in the industry, we’ve never previously been asked to mark the installation of a building with the burial of a bible. By a complete coincidence, it was apparently 23 years to the day since the church group had initially leased the land the new building now stands on.
