Provisional Survey & Report Once on site we ascertain what the client is looking for Optimum energy savings, overall appearance of the finished project, Maintenance saving s that can be achieved. It is at this point that either carries out a provisional survey to prepare basic information which shows the client the anticipated savings that can be achieved as well as the costs involved. This information is presented in a report.
Final Survey The next step if the client wishes to proceed is a more in depth survey to present the exact costs involved and how the project will be carried out, which includes the installation procedure, at this point all the different conversions required are then designed. The client places the order for the works that are to be done and the process of manufacture begins, times scales for delivery and install if required are agreed.
