Originally from Cheshire, Steve's fluent spoken French and knowledge of the complexities of the French planning system make him uniquely able to manage projects for eager builders of all nationalities. His recent projects include the design and full project management of this luxury chalet in Essert Romand, and overseeing the SIP construction of this chalet in St Jean de Sixt in just 5 days.

Very impressed with ECSUS design from the start of our new build project near Morzine to the finish. Great attention to detail. Lots of help with decisions and produced an immaculate chalet with fantastic energy efficiency ratings. Highly recommend
