We make sustainable choices

Armac have worked on several major complex projects with DE-CS who have prepared temporary works designs, and done third-party checks for approvals in principal and solutions to structural issues that have developed during the demolition process, including CAT 2 checks for National Highways and Networks Rail. The team has the ability to grasp the problem and offer value-engineered solutions. DE-CS have further done independent floor-load testing on several structures. We would have no hesitation in recommending DE-CS for any design work and look forward to working with them in the future.
