Research and learning encourage us to challenge preconceptions, introduce innovation and make better buildings. The results include building environments that last longer and these savings can reduce future revenue budgets. Working closely with clients and consultants we maximise our ability to solve problems, deliver excellence and increase the efficiency of your buildings. As Chartered Building Consultants our work is uniquely holistic, covering the full spectrum of a building’s life cycle from cradle to grave. As a team we have the skills to take a project from its conception, evolution, realisation, through to the final management of the facilities.

The system had to fulfil the requirements whilst at the same time not impose too an austere appearance. ‘Blu’ were appointed as client side project managers and contract administrators for the project and led the project from inception to completion. The completion date for the works was May 2019.
