Our goal is to simplify and eliminate unnecessary complexity helping to create business efficiency and drive value. Customer service excellence forms the basis of our service, reflective in the high levels of repeat business we experience and the long-standing client relationships we enjoy. We promote and encourage collaborative working with input from our clients, end-users, designers, supply chain and consultants. Early involvement is essential to not only cement open and positive working relations, but to collectively develop designs, methodologies and to essentially understand what our client and end-user requirements are.
DES’ core philosophy is in the building of strong relationships with our clients. We achieve this by upholding the highest standards of professional conduct including openness, honesty, and integrity.
With a combination of expertise, ingenuity, and variety we have been able to evolve – and underpin our success as a self-sufficient and high-growth business.
Our journey is one of continual development, reinforced by diversity and technological advancement.

John O’Callaghan - Managing Director, Kier Construction
We have worked with DES for many years and we do this because they are quite simply better than your average contractor.
They do what they say they are going to do, and do it very well.
We would therefore recommend them to anyone except our closest rivals (why would we want them to benefit from such a good contractor).
Our relationship with DES is a partnership, we work together to challenge what we do, how we do it and ensure that we are doing it better than anyone else in the industry.
