We pride ourselves in being able to offer the customer a fixed price contract, to avoid any 'grey areas' and to state exactly in detail and in writing, what the work will include and at a guaranteed fixed price. *

A fixed cost contract gives the customer 'peace of mind' in knowing what is included in the contract, such as details of materials & labour to be supplied- and the exact cost of the works to be carried out by the company.

*In some cases it may not be possible to offer the customer a fixed cost contract, in certain cases where unseen and hidden additional work may be required, for example - such as excavating and installing foundations, where it is not possible to assess the type of ground or the stability of the ground and the depth of the excavation required to install suitable foundations, until the excavation work has commenced.

* Obviously anything additional to the agreed contract would be chargeable separately to the agreed contract - unless agreed in writing by both company & customer.
