Our clients range from the large & complex heavy industry sites, to local authorities, NHS Trusts, care homes, education, retail & banking, housing associations to private homeowner or a small business with 1 property; ‘blue chip’ companies who have 100’s of nationwide sites or 1-off small units – we’ll sort it.

Our Durham head office provides efficient coverage of the North East and its surrounding regions. Whilst our Scottish office allows us to provide our services to a growing client base ‘up North’.

Other strategically located satellite offices and home based staff further enables us to offer national coverage in the UK and ROI. We also work outside the UK when needed.
