- If you're building a home you can send us your plans and we can quote off those

- We specialise in new builds - not wall replacements

- We use machinery and require sufficient room to access the site - at least 2m

- We specialise in walls over 15m in length, we are not economical building smaller walls

- The higher the wall the more access is required to accommodate a bigger machine to complete the drilling

- We do not install walls over 1m height without building approval and engineering
