Our partners and clients have been the foundation of Formation’s success. We invest in every relationship, making it our goal to design and build your dream project perfectly.

Site Acquisition

Over the years Formation have become experts at discovering land and buildings with rich potential, and then developing those sites to extract maximum value. Once a site has been identified and assessed, Formation will progress with planning and development, either using their own in-house designers, or working with an independent partner. An appreciation of the market’s volatility, and years of experience managing major developments allows Formation to deliver site valuations with extreme accuracy.

Clear communication, controlled action and best practice in a safe work environment will always be Formation’s operational plan. This ensures client satisfaction and precise building.

Planning and Regulations

The industry knowledge accumulated over years in the business and the expertise of specialists within the group ensures that every Formation building is fully compliant. To construct buildings that sit in perfect harmony with their surroundings and to help with the provision of affordable housing, Formation frequently works with planning departments and local councils.

Design Development

When taking on a problematic site, or an older building with structural issues, the planning and design phase are always critical. Spending time devising a considered plan at the start of the process invariably saves the project time and money.

Formation offer the skills of a highly experienced design team able to guide projects throughout their life-cycles. Their continual input and advice help clients to streamline the process, control cost, and ensure that implications for existing permissions and regulation requirements are minimised.

Time is always money. That is especially true for clients and contractors in the building trade. As an experienced working team, Formation Design and Build pride themselves on delivering impeccable quality in less time than the competition. No corner is cut. No safety measure is compromised. Nothing is sacrificed in the delivery of quality standards that are second to none.

Building Process

Superior quality is the benchmark for every detail of a Formation project, from the materials used, to the subcontractors chosen to the designers, supervisors and team members selected for each job. From quality checks to safety inspections to cost assessments, every aspect of the job is monitored in rigorous detail. That diligence guarantees that every project meets planning and regulation requirements, and that every client is satisfied.

Formation continually explore pioneering industry techniques to find new ways of minimizing risk, avoiding waste and cutting time. Prefabrication and the elimination of unnecessary site operations are always considered as a way of streamlining the process.

We pride ourselves on delivering quality developments to our clients and we value our shareholders. Imaginative build processes, exceptional quality control and meeting targets are central to our company culture.
