People on the move




Our Project Coordinator Ian considers why so many are looking to 2016 to start their build

Hello I’m Ian Watson, Project Coordinator at Design & Materials for 20 years.

There are many individuals who obtain planning permission but, for a variety of reasons, delay the build. Recently I have received a significant number of enquiries from such individuals looking to get their project moving again. Perhaps an indication that people feel 2016 is a good time to build.

They are all asking the same question; what do I think the current build costs would be for their project? We regularly analyse the build costs of our clients who are currently on site or about to start, so we are happy to provide an estimate without obligation. For most of our clients we take the project from design through planning and onto completion on site; however each year we assist a number of individuals whose plot already has full planning permission, like the examples shown opposite. Further details can be found on the main menu of our website.
