Estimating and Tendering

Offering a complete estimating service our clients can feel confident that they are receiving competitive costs. Our approach will be one of clear communication, detailed and informed as we understand the importance of each individual clients needs. Empire Carpentry Ltd employs a qualified surveyor to offer a complete service from pre-tender stage. This allows us to respond sharply and to submit clear precise valuations for bills of quantity and architectural drawings.


Carpentry is a trade that covers the whole aspect of a house build from superstructure to internal finishes, therefore we have become accustomed to placing SSSTS supervisors on all our sites. This is a paramount practice to ensure each stage of the build is completed to the latest regulations and the quality assurances delivered. Our supervisors will also ensure that site specific health and safety is being carried out on a daily basis along with our internal QA and site reports.

Quality Control

Committed to quality, committed to you.

We have an internal procedure to assure that quality of all works is to the highest standards. These include individual QA documents, a chain of command through out the company and various procedures the supervisors and contracts managers abide by. This level of service is included in our competitive costs. These standards set us apart from the competition.
