Right from the project scoping meeting we include an architect to help shape ideas & costs before they become expectations.

Projects we've enjoyed

We love a challenge best of all.
See how we’ve applied our thinking caps to these projects to get great results for our clients.

“We looked at three different companies …

but Tuatara was the one that really stood out from everybody else. One of the reasons that we went to them was because they were able to supply and have the structure built in a really good time frame, which suited our needs." Tobi Hickmott, Advantage Plastics

How we work

We hand-select each member of our core team to manage your project, based on their relevant skills and experience to ensure that we have the optimal resourcing on every project, and to ensure we always deliver on time, as well as on budget.

We’re proud to help

Ultimately, we measure our success on client satisfaction. A construction project for a commercial building is a true collaboration of ideas. It is through the challenge of meeting some of your unique or individual needs both aesthetically and practically, that we can push the limits of what is possible and achieve something that often surprises beyond the brief. Exceeding your expectations is what makes us proud.

Our Services

We manage every step of the construction process; from the original scoping meeting and renders, through to the consent process, construction, and code of compliance. We offer clients a fixed price guarantee and use BIM to ensure projects are completed on schedule.
