Many thanks to Tom and his team for providing a great service. DCM arrived punctual every day and, although one day was cut short due to some terrible weather, they ensured the job was finished before moving on to the next. The artificial grass I required has transformed my garden and although it had some difficult cuts, Tony rose to the challenge and I must say it looks great. I would certainly recommend them to anyone looking for realistic-looking artificial grass in their garden.

Excellent conversion of my mother’s property. Building and extension and installing a downstairs wet room as well as moving the kitchen from one room to another and turning previous kitchen into bedroom. New windows as well! Excellent workmanship and excellent company.

Had storm damage work done by the team at DCM. In bad weather a trip ripped through the front of our house. Within 7 days the house was back to normal without any hesitation.

fantastic team, from the initial design brief to the finished product my 2 story extension and garage build ended up looking great, the kitchen installed was to a great standard and was all bespoke. i can now enjoy my family home with all this space. Tom and Scott communicated throughout the project to ensure that we were kept in the loop. Would definitely recommend them for future and will be using them later this year for my garden!

Interior Design Brief The first step is to outline the needs of our clients and share in their vision. In doing so, we are able to understand the full scope of the project and ensure all factors have been properly considered. During requirements meetings, we ask our clients to discuss both what they want logistically and what they are hoping to achieve in the longer term. By doing this, we ensure that we start on the right step, have highlighted the specific skills required throughout and ensure strong communication from day one. Design Concept Following a requirements meeting, our team will typically begin pulling together ideas and considering the most effective method for helping our client achieve their aims. This process is typically defined by the project. For larger builds we employ full 3D visualisations, however for smaller projects we typically use a combination of mood boards, concept sketches and presentations to reach a well-defined model that fits with the client’s criteria. 3D Design We provide computer generated visuals and synthetic walkthroughs as part of interior design schemes which can also be offered as standalone service. As well as producing 3D walkthroughs, DCM offers parametric modelling software to produce 3D models of interior design fittings such as reception desks, counters, kiosks and various furniture and shop fitted items. In addition to producing manufacturing drawings, 3D models allow our clients to understand the fine details of a scheme prior to any fit-out taking place. We can even incorporate company branding, colours, finishes and even your chosen bespoke furniture into our 3D visualisations – anything is possible!

That’s why we start space planning with a utilisation study. We look at how your space is currently used, how much time is spent at the bar, at desks and in break-out areas and how much space is given over to different activities. We find out how your business works now – the workflows and the way your staff interact and work with each other – and talk about your visions for the future and the roles that IT and communications play. The benefits of space planning There are practical and financial benefits to efficient space planning for any commercial working environment: an efficient space makes teamwork and collaboration easier, increases productivity dramatically and can save you money on unnecessary unused space that you are paying for. And we deliver more than that. We create dynamic, energising places; reinvigorate your customers and staff.
