APM is typically appointed very early in the design process so as to allow us to start putting packages together for tender, this speeds up the process and streamlines the programme. 



Our cost management strategy allows for a client friendly open book process. We work to understand what value means to the client and then use this to benchmark throughout the project to help drive cost and efficiency. 



APM ensures that each sub-contractor package is procured separately to a specialist in the trade, which results in the client receiving the best possible quality from industry leading experts.


Design Flexibility

We give the client more scope to make changes throughout the construction process, allowing them to react to changes in budget strategy, programme and quality.



Whether you wish to create an Eco-Home, a Zero-Carbon home or a Passiv-Haus, APM will help you with the design, implementation and construction of your cutting edge dwelling.


Healthy Living

In the city or the countryside, we reduce dust allergens and pollution. Combined with well allocated natural light, we create a space that promotes health and wellbeing.

Early involvement allows the construction team to work with our architect to increase build-ability, save money up front and avoid changes later in the process. 

Our review and forecasting processes ensure extensive cost control on all sub-contractors and packages, allowing the client to receive the best quality materials and works and the best possible price.

What our clients say about us

We have been working with APM for 6 months on a number of projects at my home. They have been first class in terms of their professionalism, organisation and delivery. They provide a seamless design and build process that takes a lot of day to day pressure off the client. They are courteous and patient in the development of a design and also bring great ideas to that process. They adopt a thorough and transparent approach to financial reporting, again making oversight a lot easier. They run a tidy and safe site. My day job is running a major real estate business and, in my experience, it is unusual to find the level of service and professionalism offered by Atkins at a more domestic level.
