Acquisition & Planning

We offer advice on effective site selection in order that sites can practically and economically be built and also have a higher chance of making it through the planning process at the first attempt. We would also make an assessment on the availability of key services and that they can be installed to meet with the client's rollout programme and within budget. We can carry out feasibility studies in order that prospective sites can be accurately evaluated prior to acquisition.


We offer professional advice on the buildability of sites once they have been nominated. We can attend nomination surveys with an appointed consultant engineer to offer advice on the safest, efficient and economic way to construct a proposed site. At this survey would take in to account the aesthetics of a proposed design and its likely impact on the surrounding environment, as it is vital that we increase the chance of the site being successful in planning approval at the first attempt.


Rooftop Sites

This work is higher risk and must be carried out safely. Therefore we ensure that we carefully plan all aspects of construction of rooftop sites as far in advance as permitted. We ensure that the site is designed in order that the contract can be executed safely and to an agreed programme of works without any subsequent delay or disruption. Where possible we are keen to offer advice on safe alternative methods of construction that can minimise programme times and reduce construction costs.

  • Steel fabrication and erection work
