Detailed Design
David Thorp will make use of over 13 years of practice skills and computer programming to bring about a successful construction project. Two members of staff have a wealth of experience and can advise upon  the smallest of details which may be the most significant of features For example: how large connecting bolts need to be in steelwork. All of the designs and advice follow a pattern in terms of sustainability, wherever possible thin sections of renewable timber are used. Timber is used for locks and hinge pivots which characterise our aspirations.
