Our client, a leading principal contractor established for 27 years with a turnover of £13 million, is a specialist in façade conservation and restoration projects on listed buildings and period properties in and around London.

They currently undertake 25 projects per year with an average contract value of £600k resulting in a tender range of £1,000 - £2 million.
