Budget Cost Plans
Most companies have thought about building new premises or expanding existing ones but then take it no further, put off by the potential cost and time taken to find out how much their idea will actually set them back.

PDR offer a free service in providing a budget cost based on detailed plans or just initial thoughts which can provide the basis of any decision to progress the project further.

Civil Engineering & Highways
In addition to being a vital part of our construction projects we have developed an experienced team of professionals to deal with specific civil engineering schemes such as estate roads, sewers, car parks and retaining structures.

Design and Build
PDR offer a comprehensive Design and Build service either in the traditional format – from a concept to the finished building – or where the plans have already been drawn up to be adopted by us, the contractor.

PDR have at their disposal an enviable resource of architects and engineers, who are able to produce buildings of any size, material, and use, be it a functional steel framed warehouse or an elaborate cutting edge and state of the art piece of architecture.

PDR have undertaken Design and Build projects from £500k to in excess of £20m.

Open Book Negotiation
PDR have developed relationships with many repeat customers with whom we can negotiate contracts based on ‘transparency’.

In this way we calculate the value of a scheme obtaining competitive quotations (i.e. best value) and adding an agreed level of contribution that both parties are comfortable with. Basically that is the price they pay.

Refurbishment
Breathing life back into buildings is a vital part of our industry and we have a track record of delivering refurbishment/alteration schemes both on time and just as importantly on budget.

This can involve Client occupation and careful programming and phasing.

Traditional Tendering
This is very much our ‘bread and butter’ with a dedicated in-house estimating team using both up to the minute computer estimating or more traditional hand propelled systems

We have the capabilities to turn round up to 30 tenders per month of differing size and complexity, each is carefully settled prior to submission.

PDR we have a success rate comparable with anyone with an across the UK capability which gives us access to both national and local Clients.
