Technical Capacity

Design and Build

Most of our work is undertaken via a design and build procurement route; we are experienced at delivering projects from inception via Early Contractor Involvement as well as novated technical design. Our holistic approach to design allows us to manage, to critique and to coordinate all elements of consultant and specialist contractor designs to ensure client specifications are properly achieved under the design and build contract. Where value engineering or design changes are proposed we ensure that any consequential effects to other elements of the design are properly considered before implementation. Quality control, whole life considerations and sustainable principles are at the heart of the Clegg design and build ethos.

Building Information Modelling

We are experienced at Level 2 BIM project delivery. At the heart of BIM Level 2 is information management. To excel in the discipline, we work with information management partners including Viewpoint to provide a BIM platform for project delivery.


We embrace new systems and adopt modern methods of construction where appropriate to a project. The following are examples of our deployment of modern methods of construction:

  • Timber frame - Used on schools, care homes and hotels
  • Lightweight metal frame - Used on student accommodation
  • Modular construction - Used on student accommodation
  • Pods - Used on hotels and student accommodation
  • Modular building services - Used on office projects

Building services engineering

Our portfolio of completed projects includes a wide variety of technically advanced building services engineering solutions to control building environments and other elements such as a client's process requirements. Some examples of our work includes:
  • BS5454 archive storage, temperature and humidity controlled
  • Research and development 'dry-room'
  • Glove box installations
  • Laboratory gases
  • River-source heat pump
  • Biomass heating
  • BMS controlled night-time purging/thermal solutions


Refurbishment work features stongly within our portfolio of completed projects and this includes conservation works to Listed Buildings where supply chain and material selection remain critical. Our collaborative approach enables us to successfully progress the often sensitive matters associated with heritage refurbishment projects.
