Design & Build

Our Design & Build construction service offers clients a ‘one-stop-shop’ service, with the experienced Speller Metcalfe team taking full responsibility for design, construction and project management.

This allows us to work closely with clients and ensure complete understanding and openness between client and contractor throughout – by ensuring your main contractor is part of the project team from an early stage, we are able to advise on buildability issues, value engineering and other design stage requirements.

Bringing the project team together at an earlier stage will also ensure greater clarity and collaboration by project members and enables us to produce the most cost-effective solutions, ensuring projects come within time and budget.

Refurbishment & Remodelling

Our experience of refurbishment and remodelling of existing properties crosses over a range of our construction sectors.

Many of our projects require working with clients who remain in-situ throughout the duration of the building works, therefore strict planning is undertaken to ensure minimal disruption to surrounding people and properties.

We pride ourselves on keeping an open dialogue with clients to ensure understanding of project stages and adaptability to personal circumstances.

Facilities Management

Sometimes it can be more appropriate and cost effective to maintain the existing facilities of a building; for example ensuring properties meet up-to-date health and safety requirements, general upkeep such as air conditioning, water and boiler maintenance, or striving for higher levels of energy efficiency.

Speller Metcalfe can provide you with a facilities management service whereby we monitor your property, evaluate what type of services are required and assess any improvements that need to be made.

We take responsibility for the design, build, aftercare and facilities management of a new property.
