We make your


design projects

become a reality from dream to design and build.

Have you got an unconventional design that you’d love to see built?

Are you looking for a unique and creatively designed installation, taken from your scratchy pen and paper brainstormed idea, and turned into reality.

Designed and built by a team of experienced craftsmen to the highest standards, but always with an unconventional twist.

We create unconventional designs for local businesses, councils, community projects and people’s homes. Whatever we do, we try not to do the simply ‘ordinary’ and have established an impressive portfolio of projects, all reflecting our originality.

“Your joy is our goal and we excel in offering an excellent service that stands out.”
