The economic impact of repair, maintenance and replacement of components within a building over its lifetime can be considerable. If the necessary expenditure is not planned for, in a considered, informed and concise manner, then this can result in a reduction in the useful lifespan of the building and inefficient use of resources. We have an established expertise in and have developed our own computer software packages to generate comprehensive and detailed planned maintenance programmes which are of immense value to Clients in the management and maintenance of their properties.

The need for sound and fair judgement in contractual disputes has never been greater. Armours have assisted many parties in the adjudication process since it’s inception.
