Our Process

Project Management for architectural design construction services

From exciting architectural design for new builds to respectful listed building renovations, Carreg’s ethos is one of honesty, consistency, attention to detail and pride in all our work. With a solid framework of management and trade skills to draw upon, Carreg is able to assemble a tailor-made construction team to meet the needs of your individual project.
As we specialise in heritage and architectural design construction, no two buildings are the same. Therefore, our approach to pricing is bespoke for each project. However, our professional processes are much the same for each client and are explained in detail from the offset by your assigned project manager, who is there to guide, advise and liaise with clients on every detail of your project.

Carreg’s focus is on quoting accurately for each and every project in our structured format: absorbing as much information as possible during quotation phase, thus enabling us to deliver, in response, a reverse brief and quote that enables the flow of a well thought out, time-sensitive, efficient projects with precise construction completion.

We price a project on the cost of what it will take to complete to a high standard and not what it will take to win a contract. Carreg operates with a transparent approach so that everyone involved in the project at any given time is aware of progress, costs and time expectations. We focus on the quality of workmanship, using the very best tradesman, experts in their field. This enables us to deliver successful architectural design and build projects time and time again.

We use our own bespoke project portal called Agored, which literally means “open” so that our customers can have access to all the details of their project in a transparent way.  This unique software allows clients to log in and

  • approve or decline quotes
  • manage all financials
  • approve or decline changes to the project
  • have access to monthly valuations
  • have access to a projected end value of your project.

In 2020, we decided to make Agored available for other domestic builders in Wales so they can improve their efficiency, reputation, and profits. Our project benefited from financial support from the Welsh Government’s £63.4m SMARTCymru programme, backed by £27m of EU funds.
