We are Amspec

Process

We are a hard working design led construction company, but more than that Amspec are made up of people who really care about creating an exceptional experience for our customers. We operate in a very tough industry where failure is exposed via snag-lists and financial penalties.

So why do we do it?

Design. You want wow, we can give you wow. Most companies require practicality with a bit of wow, and we can do that too.

We strive to be the best in the business but don’t take our word for it, see what our clients have to say. 

Client Testimonials

2. Design

A detailed site survey is completed to ensure our starting point is correct. As buildings become more technically complex we spend a lot of time analysing building services and their impact on the design concept.It may be appropriate to carry out a detailed workplace study to fully understand the intricate nature of your business and any changes you may wish to implement. Agile working may be considered as the way forward, taking advantage of the ebb and flow of your work patterns.

We use a variety of tools to extract opinion about the direction of the design. Simple mood boards and images of past and similar projects work well with extracting opinion.Initial concept designs are prepared using all the gathered information, we present back to the client in a variety of formats which is an enlightening and enjoyable meeting.

Our experienced design team develops a full set of plans and details using the very latest design software. 3D CGI visuals are frequently used to give our customers a realistic understanding of the look and feel of the design proposal.
