Achieving that alignment behind the idea—your idea—is easier if everyone is prepared to adopt a broad definition of their role, based on knowledge, experience and resources. That way, we all help each other to achieve your aims, thinking about the whole project all the time.
Sandlings commitment to every project begins early on.
We work with architects to help refine ideas and consult on realising a plan—providing a breadth of knowledge and skill in all sides of building, from sizing up the site, to thinking through the engineering and the practical details.
We are also ready to help before the design stage. If you have the beginnings of an idea or if you simply want a practical opinion about the possibilities, we will always be glad to talk it over.
While we work with you and with architects to refine plans and stretch possibilities, we also manage the delivery of the build and all the teams of skilled trades on site.
Maintaining great relationships with everyone involved is the key to success in the build. It ensures that everyone is able to get behind the plan, to do their best work to achieve it and be ready to solve problems if they arise.
Although it is a young company, Sandlings was born out of a much older one, and raised in a bigger group of construction companies.
Being part of a group provides stability and financial resourcing, but the value of the relationship to Sandlings goes further. The breadth and depth of experience within the group makes projects run more smoothly, giving you more confidence in our advice and guidance at every stage of the build, from initial idea to completion.
The One Group Construction family includes companies in civil engineering, construction, renewable energy, plant hire, asphalt surfacing, freight and logistics, and support services.
Its subsidiaries work across government frameworks, private sector tenders and in domestic contracts.
One Group is not a remote holding company; it is an active, privately held business that provides inspiration and direction as well as the confidence of financial backing to its companies.
For great ideas are easily sold and more strongly supported by everyone involved.
They are the foundation.
We all build on great ideas.
We live to make living spaces come alive, to make workplaces work better, and to make public buildings unite their communities.
As an idea-building-company, we see every project as an opportunity to realise your ambition, however grand the plan or bold the design.
That is our measure of success.
A bit like film-making, there are so many very different talents and personalities involved in building projects it’s something near a miracle things ever get made at all.
What matters most is how well the team is chosen and how committed to the success of the project each member of the team proves to be.
It is demonstrated not only in the quality of the work produced at every stage (visible or otherwise) of the build, but also in a willingness to be flexible, to innovate on site and to do what’s right.
A motivated team makes a big difference not just to the outcome, but the whole job.
It’s in the contract of course, but more so in the relationship that develops between sponsor, architect, building contractor and sub-contractors which always shape the progress of the build.
Quite apart from sticking to the schedule, a happy team can carry a project along with a lively kind of professionalism that makes everything work better for all.
