With over 15 years experience, GD Trent Landscapes has been involved in a range of jobs both private and commercial.Our advantage in this industry is that we offer clients both a design and construction capability. The provision of Concept and Planting plan work to accompany construction projects allows the design intent to be seen by the client and results in a better understanding of the extent of works. Where plan work is supplied, our experience in understanding this design intent enables the construction to follow the objectives ensuring that the project brief is met.
The small to medium size nature of the business allows for a high level of consultation and input by the project manager to each ongoing project. This daily monitoring of individual work sites ensures that projects are done to specification and come in on budget. It also allows for a speedy resolution in instances where plan-site inconsistencies necessitate alterations to the scope of works.
Due to the Principle’s (Projects manager) direct input with all aspects of the administration of the business, a highly responsive approach is taken to documentation, quoting, estimating and invoicing. The resulting immediate and efficient nature of communications between the contractor and client ensures a high quality outcome for a competitive price thereby maintaining our commitment to Quality Assurance.
