At Glencoe we build high quality new house,
extensive alterations and additions, and light

build process we will also quote on your plans provided
by your own architect or architectural designer.
How does the design process work?
We like to meet with you and discuss your
requirements. This meeting can either be in your own
environment or at our office. From this meeting we will
draw up a sketch plan based on your wishes and
incorporating aspects that will best suit your site.
From this sketch plan we will suggest finishes &
budgets. You will then have the opportunity to review
this sketch and make changes if required.
