ESP Developments is still operating. Our priority is the safety of our clients and our workers in these unprecedented times.
As such, we have introduced a range of measures, both onsite & in the office to limit the spread of Covid-19. These are all in compliance with the Government’s health advice.
If you haven’t already started planning a renovation or new build, but it was on the cards, now is a good time to start planning and talking about it. You could use this down time to get the design done and certified so you are ready to go when you choose to.
We will come out of the Covid-19 crisis at some point and the building industry will be very busy due to so many people putting back their plans. Certifiers will also have a huge backlog of plans to review and approve. So, it would be a huge advantage to be armed with approved plans, completed specifications and be in a position to start building straight away.
Stay safe, we will get through this together,
