Acting in the role of Principal Contractor Nationally for over 30 years, we have gained a vast knowledge of structural remediation to all types of projects and are well respected within the industry being used by many of supply partners to introduce and develop new products to the market. Makers approach is to contract in a proactive manner with its Clients to meet both the structural and financial needs of the project. Our experience and project delivery have been demonstrated the ability to manage and execute multi million pound projects.
We have demonstrated over time, our systematic approach to solving Clients specific needs and our able to see a project through from initial investigation, remedial proposals specification through to the completion of the final project. We strive to offer the best value solutions, latest technologies and commercial acumen to balance the needs, budgetary pressure and structural requirement.
We have seen all manner of concrete repair techniques come and go, until now when we see the use of a single system approach being utilised from repair to protective coatings. The system will usually comprise of a reinforcement primer, bonding bridge and the correct type of specified repair product compatible with the parent concrete. We firmly believe in having a comprehensive understanding of the mode of failure to fully understand the requirements of the structure so that we may design and offer lasting long term solutions. To that end, we believe that structures should be initially tested and investigated in order to produce successful concrete repairs and techniques.
