We saw that people were crying out for a small local firm that acted like a large national one, with professional-level project management and industry-leading service standards. Their main concerns were finding a company that provided clear, accurate quotes, stuck to budgets and timescales and were easy to communicate and work with from start to finish.
Since then we’ve spent 8 years and thousands of pounds developing and honing our own IT-driven Project Management System and Service Charter, and today we have hundreds of happy, loyal customers. We think we got it right, but we don’t rest on our laurels.
“We’re struggling to find a reliable building firm – if only we could find a firm like you to do our extension/conversion/new build…”
Since 2019 we’ve been quietly piloting a move into the building industry, applying all the values, systems and project management skills that made NDC so successful to general building projects.
Now we’ve tested the water and proved that the NDC approach works just as well on building projects as it does on landscaping ones, we’re proud to announce that NDC Project Management is open for business.
Whether you already know what you’re looking for, or you need help to visualise the final outcome, we work closely with you from design right through to building – holding your hand all the way through.
With our own in-house architectural design and planning team, we can design your entire scheme and get planning approval through quickly and easily.
With us you don’t get a vague estimate on the back of a fag packet – you get a detailed quote, right down to the last brick and light fitting. And if you make changes to the spec during the project, we revise the estimate, so you always know exactly what you’re paying for.
If you’re on a tight or fixed budget we’ll cost-engineer everything before we start. And with our exclusive custom-built Project Management System, you can see exactly what’s going on and make fast decisions wherever you are in the world.
The only surprise you’ll get from us is if we finish ahead of schedule or come in under-budget.
If you already have architectural plans, that’s great. We’ll work through them with you, then fully cost your project with a completely transparent breakdown provided by our own in-house quantity surveyor.
You don’t like added extras, and neither do we. So when you work with us there are no added extras.
The detailed work we do in the planning and quoting stage means that we can bottom out the cost before we even break ground.
Not with us. We’re able to manage and track your project incredibly tightly, with fully detailed timetables, milestones and deadlines.
We expect you to hold us to our promises, and we always keep them.
Once we start, Darren or Ben will be your dedicated Project Manager, and they’ll liaise with you, the Planning Department, Building Control and our team of outstanding construction engineers to make sure everything stays on track, on time and on budget.

Ask most people what they think about building companies, and they’ll usually say the same things:
“They never show up on time.”
“They always take longer than they said they would.”
“The final bill is always more than the quote.”
And the list goes on…
The problem isn’t that they’re not good at building – it’s that they’re not good at managing their workload. So they end up over-promising, underestimating timescales and cutting corners on their ‘guesstimates’.
Any company is only as good as its people. But without efficient systems, even the best people miss things. That’s why we’ve spent many years and £1000s developing our own NDC Project Management System. It allows us to quote with laser-precision, see exactly where your project stands at all times, and give you full access so you can hold us to account.
Darren has been in construction for 35 years, managing projects up to £3M for Colleges, NHS Trusts and countless private clients. He specialises in time and cost management, and excels at pulling together the right team for the job. He’s obsessive about his work, his family and Oxford United.
During his 30 year construction career, Ben has moved from bricklaying to civil engineering to Project Management. He considers himself the world’s best excavator driver and isn’t afraid to share it. Ben combines a relaxed style with fantastic relation-building skills and is always ready to lead from the front on site. He’s passionate about work, the gym and Southampton FC.
With many years’ experience on everything from extensions to new builds, Judith is a creative, forward thinking architectural designer who puts her emphasis on high quality, solid design.
