  • High levels of compliance with building regulations
  • Effective working relationships with LABC surveyors
  • Outstanding craftsmanship
  • Technical innovation
  • Sustainability and high performance
  • Ability to solve technical problems with creative solutions
  • Use of innovative products and the skills to overcome difficult site conditions
