We're here to help

For thousands of homeowners, developers, property managers and building custodians, we’re their cornerstone for trusted advice and guidance when it comes to their buildings, from design to disputes and everything in between.

We know that purchasing a property is the biggest investment you’re ever likely to make. And whether it’s a charming cottage, terraced house or executive home, you need to be sure that what you want to do is a sensible move and will protect or enhance your investment.

From retail units and hotels to large management portfolios and industrial buildings. We understand that you need to know the risks and the potential outcomes with any property decisions.

We’ve more than 30 years experience caring for some of the South West’s most loved and iconic buildings. We’ll help you find the perfect balance between careful and sympathetic alterations, building performance and cost, and confidently take on the approval process on your behalf.

Maintaining public buildings poses unique challenges. Schools, libraries, hospitals and public offices can’t just shut down while building or maintenance work is carried out. We know that to minimise disruption, safety and timings are paramount, so we’re sticklers for deadlines and details.

Expertise underpins everything we do

From exposed waterside positions, to mining and mundic concerns, we’re adept at helping our clients overcome the unique challenges posed by the range of properties across Cornwall and Devon. If you’ve got questions about a property you own, lease or are looking at, we’d love to become your cornerstone too.

New holiday homes for a historic hotel

We’ve worked with the owners of Budock Vean Hotel for a number of years. So, back in 2012, when they were looking at options to enhance the hotel’s accommodation and create investment opportunities, we were their natural first port of call.

Falmouth University Fox Building

Our maintenance inspections in 2016 and 2017 had highlighted the roof on the Fox Building as nearing the end of its useful life. So as part of their planned maintenance schedule, FX Plus, who manage the university campuses, asked us to specify and manage the roof renewal project in 2018.

Breathing life back into a traditional cliff-side Cottage

Perched above the picturesque Penberth Cove on the West Cornish coast, Chynoy Cottage was suffering from general deterioration and dampness after languishing empty for several decades.
