Design Team: External Client Appointed
Project Management Team: Wayne Dewing & Ben Trundley

We were contacted by this client following a recommendation from his brother for our services. We had previously undertaken seamless guttering installation and other external superstructure repairs to this period family home. The project brief was to construct an already designed extension sympathetically and in keeping with the existing property.


Our first step on this project as with all is to prepare a fixed-priced estimate based on the information provided. The client was very happy with the estimate and provided approval by return. Following approval, we prepared a construction pack and arranged a pre-start site meeting with the client and our relevant teams to arrange the works and discuss logistics. As with many extensions the client needed to remain in residence while the construction works took place. In this case, we built the extension superstructure to the watertight stage then undertook the knock through to join with the existing kitchen/dining room. We then completed the kitchen prior to removing the utility room ensuring the least disruption to the family while construction works were ongoing.

The extension was constructed with locally sourced reclamation materials including reclaimed bricks to closely match those of the existing property which the client was delighted with. The extension was built on a concrete raft to avoid the need for piling. We really feel this extension has been constructed with a great selection of old and new materials that complement each other and this period family home. The full scope of the project also included a re-wire with electrical fittings along with replacement & levelling of the existing ceilings to provide a perfectly level ceiling. All works seen in the images were undertaken
by our team.


We are very pleased to have been commissioned to undertake this project and are delighted with the result. A great opportunity to showcase our skills and demonstrate our construction versatility and resourcefulness. All our projects big or small enjoy the benefit of a dedicated project and construction manager The client is very happy and we are already in the process of discussing future projects on land and buildings belonging to them. The completion of the project was perfectly timed so the client was able to enjoy the festive period with their friends and family in their new space.
