All of our Building Supervisors have the knowledge and experience to expertly manage the construction of your house extension with minimal interruption to your family.

Our Building Supervisors are there to fully manage all aspects of the building project. The Building Supervisor will be onsite with you every step of the way to ensure all work is carried out to the highest possible standard. They are your day-to-day contact that will work with you to facilitate any requirements you may have. They are your liaison between the tradespeople, designers and company management. They will also be able to answer any questions you may have about the construction or onsite procedures.

All of our supervisors have at least ten years’ industry experience and are qualified to manage any problems that occur. As project manager, they will organise and control all onsite trades and material deliveries so there is minimal interruption to your normal day. They will make sure that everything runs smoothly and that you will have a full understanding of the construction process. A good supervisor has excellent people skills, but also a good solid knowledge of construction, a fact we are very aware of when choosing our supervisors.
