Community organisations are the life blood of our society.
For community groups, funding projects with their own carefully managed assets, from public donations or grant awards, getting best value for money is of utmost importance.
Capital project or the maintenance and repair of an existing building, any community organisation will want to ensure that their money works as hard as possible for the aims of the organisation.
We understand this requirement and are committed to helping you achieve your aspirations.
If you are acquiring or taking a lease out on a property for your group or venture, you need to ensure it meets your requirements and will not be the source of any unexpected expense in the future. Our building surveys will give you a full picture before you make a commitment and a condition survey will protect your position for dilapidations.
Running a property for a community group also brings responsibilities. Our review of statutory compliance will ensure your property is fully compliant with legislation. From fire risk assessments to access consultancy services, we are there to help.
And our planned maintenance surveys will help you plan expenditure to keep your building in a serviceable condition.
Should you need space to grow, a feasibility study will allow you to consider your options. If new premises or an extension is required we can support your project as part of a design team as cost consultants and manage health and safety as CDM 2015 advisors.
Our experienced professionals can also manage the design process, obtain planning permission and steer your project to a successful completion as project managers.
We understand community organisations and enjoy working with committed individuals and committees, helping them realise their goals.

“A strong community is an important aspect in many lives and people are committed to improving the own surrounding and local environment. We have found that early and continuous consultation, management of risk and ensuring value for money is often the key to success in community construction projects. Our knowledge of funding streams and the grant application process for many providers is a valuable benefit to our clients.
We have been able to assist in various community schemes, including sports & leisure facilities, community centres and numerous church projects, working alongside committee steering groups or as part of a design team.
Our involvement from inception to completion allows us to understand the needs of the community for any given project and offer our expertise and experience to help deliver a successful project and fulfil the requirements of the community as a whole.”
