Specialist Services

AGRICULTURAL BUILDINGS

We specialise in the design, construction, repairs and modification of agricultural buildings.

We offer a complete service, from the initial designing stage to final completion of the project, as well as ongoing maintenance if required.

All of the material and products we use are durable, hardwearing and of the highest quality with the relevant safety standards where applicable.

We ensure that each and every project is finished to the highest standard of workmanship and safety.

MIRE RESTORATION PROJECTS

We have been involved in peatland restoration long before it was common practice and have had a strong influence in the development of the practical restoration techniques to date. We are currently restoring peatlands across Exmoor, Dartmoor and Bodmin.

Restoration halts oxidation and promotes active peat growth, thus increasing the absorption of CO2 from the atmosphere.

The restoration could play a major role in mitigating against atmospheric CO2 rises. On the entire site we restored so far, the results are looking good.

Restored peatlands have been proved to have a sufficient effect on flooding at lower levels by storing and slowing the flow of water from the uplands as well as creating a wildlife heaven for moorland birds, insects and plant.

VEGETATION CONTROL

Heather and gorse management - Heather is one of the most important components of open moorland vegetation communities and habitats.

Gorse is a valuable wildlife and landscape feature however it can be invasive.

Appropriate management of heather and gorse has both conservation and economic significant.
