In the changeable economic climate the entire industry is facing more strenuous economic demands, but we would submit that out-sourcing work to PDK offers several advantages to you, the customer

  • The use of an outside design resource allows you to "smooth" out some of the imbalances of workload, so turnover increases whilst keeping the in-house design resource busy
  • Using PDK as an outside resource allows specific projects to be targeted, with the knowledge that there is a design resource available to detail, and manage the project at short notice. This also means that projects larger than usual may be undertaken, without having to recruit extra personnel
  • Projects are priced on a fixed price basis, enabling tighter control of the budget, any necessary additions are covered under separate quotations, and agreed prior to work commencing
  • We take great pride in the quality and accuracy of our work, Our specialist knowledge, with more than 20 years window / curtain walling / cladding and structural design experience means we can problem solve interface issues, material compatibility issues, methods of assembly and build sequence in order to achieve a workable and economic design

All our staff regularly attend CPD based training courses to ensure our product, construction and legislative knowledge is up to date.
