The Business

Land Development
The Land Development Team are highly experienced and have an excellent reputation within the engineering industry.  Typically involved in medium to largescale residential and commercial projects, our projects are diverse and interesting.  With a significant number of blue-chip, repeat-business clients giving witness to the quality and value of our service, the Land Development Team within Blue Barn are well-established, and have many projects in the pipeline.
