As a general thumb, we work in the following postcodes for most of our projects: AB10, AB11, AB12, AB13, AB14, AB15, AB16, AB21, AB22, AB23, AB24, AB25, AB31, AB32. AB39, AB41, AB51.
For some larger projects, we might be willing to travel further, while for smaller ones they need to be very close in order to be cost-effective.
People get upset when we don’t want to quote for some projects, but we have to draw a line somewhere. Basically we need to be relatively close to most of our suppliers and our projects to be clustered in a relatively small area in order to reach optimum efficiency. Further away projects (especially in rural areas) means that our suppliers are far away and it’s hard to combine projects in such a way that they are close to each other. Also, in rural areas there are close communities, so local tradespeople have much better chances to win the project.
