Time to rely on the tried and tested
R W Armstrong is celebrating 60 years of building and renovating the South of England’s finest homes
This year marks the milestone 60th year R W Armstrong has been creating and restoring some of the country’s most exquisite country homes and landmark heritage sites. With a fourth generation of family now within the firm, its traditional building has changed very little—the methods have been tried and tested over the years, with the master craftsmen developing their skills.
in contrast, modern building, even in traditional styles, has changed significantly. When it comes to the alteration and refurbishment of old buildings—or change of use and conservation —projects evolve into a hybrid. These not only challenge tried and tested methods, but also require dedicated project management to meet the needs of modern construction processes.
At the forefront of each project is obtaining the required permissions and meeting regulatory compliance. however knowledgeable and skilled the design and management team, any main contractor needs to keep its finger on the pulse to deliver a fully compliant project.
What can substantially differentiate main contractors is the skills and benefits they can offer to deal with the logistics of construction. This might seem a simplistic challenge, however, with influencing factors and individual projects that can really stretch the expectations of workmanship, service and efficiency, R W Armstrong’s ability to offer robust project management is crucial.
The company offers construction services from small one-off projects, where direct client-contractor relationships are key, through to specialist conservation work on landmark heritage projects, where the skills offered by artisans and craftsmen are core to conservation. For larger projects, an organised and multi-disciplined project team work collaboratively to ensure skilled resources continue The company was founded in 1957 by Roy W Armstrong, a bricklayer by trade to deliver exemplary standards of quality. integral to R W Armstrong’s project services is the management of compliance requirements, from insurances and ecology to party wall and Vat—main contractors now need to be more than ordinary builders.
