Scoping the work
Cost transparency will always be at the forefront when making planned changes to a social housing or commercial rental property. Wessex understands that the more detail you have to work with the better you can manage your budget.
From an initial telephone consultation, through to full, on-site assessment and quotations, we will work with you to ensure that we get a clear picture of the result you are looking to achieve, before providing you with a fully itemised quote. Our central office manage all estimates, across all services, to coordinate your project and give you a complete picture of the costs and timescales involved before you proceed.
Structural to decorative
No job is too large or too small for Wessex. Our extensive experience across the social housing sector means we know how complex your requirements may be and have built a team of experts to meet them.
