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.

The com­pany con­tin­ues to pro­vide build­ing ser­vices to Lon­don and the cen­tral south out of its four of­fice lo­ca­tions. Ex­pe­ri­enced and adept at di­ver­sity, it works on listed build­ings, de­liv­er­ing re­fur­bish­ments and al­ter­ations, new builds in both tra­di­tional and con­tem­po­rary styles, con­ser­va­tion and her­itage work. R W Arm­strong also boats ex­ten­sive ex­pe­ri­ence in base­ments, landscaping, swim­ming pool and leisure fa­cil­i­ties.
