Finishing Work

“Finishing work” comprises any work outside of structural work, done to complete, furnish, and equip the building, in the interest of creating an improved, safer environment for users, in both public areas and private living areas.

This vast field includes a wide variety of specialised trades. The construction methods, standards, and materials used in this sector are constantly evolving.

Our technical experts’ years working as engineers involved in construction and working in design offices have made them specialists in the industry. They are well-versed in all the types of claims that may be encountered, which enables them to provide clear, precise solutions that limit financial costs and delays.
