Commercial Clients

Priority of the client’s business objectives

From initial consultation to project completion we prioritise our clients business objectives and the building user requirements.

We differentiate ourselves from our competitors by taking extensive time to understand the key business needs and requirements of each client, subsequently establishing and then thoroughly managing the critical interpersonal relationships within all projects and appointments.

We continue to maintain, manage and develop these relationships throughout the project and throughout the inevitable challenges that occur during the design, construction and handover phases.

“Carl Fox of Fox Associates, was our project manager for the external renovation, including re-roofing, of our challenging old house over a period of 3 - 4 months. He managed the selection of the main contractors and throughout supervised the complicated work with scrupulous attention to detail and watchfulness. A good working relationship with contractors and clients was maintained with tact and humour. We were constantly thankful to be under his calm and considerate stewardship.”
