Better Design & Build Ltd was founded by Ed Ollett and Alastair Antingham to combine Ed's extensive experience in structural engineering and architectural design with Alastair's outstanding reputation as a joiner and builder.
The company offers simple yet effective solutions for design and build projects, covering traditional through to modern architectural designs. We strive to use building techniques that offer ultimate value in relation to both money and time, ensuring each project is completed within a clear budget and timeframe.
We believe we are unique in our field, by offering:
A single point of responsibility for the entirety of the build: Each project is assigned one main site foreman, who is responsible for delivering all aspects of work.
Early site involvement in the design process: This ensures the foreman has a deep understanding of the design and structural work and the client's specific requirements for the build.
Work methods that focus on the front end design process: This provides certainty of budget and effective build delivery.
For advice on any aspect of design and build please get in touch.
