We work to deliver 100% client satisfaction at every stage from design to build until your project is completed exactly how you wanted it

Loft Conversions

Our lofts are designed to your specific needs and wishes with a key focus on maximising light and storage. We have a long history of experience and this allows us to tailor every loft conversion project to the needs of the client. We understand individual personalities and needs and how they show influence and translate into your own unique living space.

Kitchen Extensions

In many Victorian and 1930s properties, natural light is greatly limited and front-to-back vistas impeded by unwanted walls and corridors. By opening up these spaces, we can maximise the natural light, integrate the outdoors and indoors, make the kitchen the hub of the home and make the entire property fit for 21st century living with an innovative, bespoke solution.

Refurbishments

When we help homeowners to open up their living space, this doesn’t always necessitate an extension or a conversion.

Sometimes it involves taking the same space and remodelling it – completely rethinking the floor plan and lay-out, and seeing how to maximise both the natural light and the space.

Stand-alone Design

We offer an all inclusive design package which involves creating initial concepts, securing planning approval, and creating all the technical drawings and structural specifications.

That is everything you need to have ready before you kick off the build

How we deliver projects

Our process is simple and divided into two distinct phases with separate contracts: Design and Build. As a client you only commit to one phase at a time depending on what stage of the process you are in. Each phase consists of three stages as described below.

Design

This is the kick-off point for your project. We carry out a complete architectural measured survey of the property. This allows us to create accurate CAD design drawings. This is followed by a design meeting to start discussing your ideas in more detail.

Planning

At this stage we finalise the designs with you and start preparing planning applications as needed. We place a high priority on ensuring that plans, designs and schedules are all based on a thorough and detailed understanding of planning guidelines.

We co-ordinate with local authorities until the decision is made, and the planning approval is secured.

Technical

Once the planning consent is secured, we translate the design drawings into more detailed technical drawings for the purposes of building control and construction. This also includes specifications and structural calculations. At this stage, we will also submit to you our ‘no obligation’ quote for the build phase.

Pre-build

90% of our clients decide to stick with us after the design phase is completed. Once the build contract is signed, we kick off the process by making sure all the pre-build processes are complete. These include assistance with party wall agreements, Thames Water build over agreement, submitting building control application, and preparing method statements etc as needed. This stage ends with a pre-start meeting with your foreman before the actual build begins.

Build

One of our foremen will be dedicated to your project and will be on-site to manage everyday works. Our project managers will be overseeing the works to make sure they are completed to high standards, within your budget and on time. Throughout the process we will keep you updated with the progress and coordinate the works with third parties such as kitchen or flooring suppliers. We will also advise and guide you to choose any suppliers if needed.

Handover

As the build draws to finish, we will help to iron out any ‘snags’ to make sure everything is completed to your satisfaction. We will put together all necessary certificates such as gas, electricity and building control completion along with warranties for glazing, boiler etc. At the final completion meeting, we will hand you these documents, together with the keys to your house. Needless to say, you can contact us any time after this, if you want us to look at something.

Our values

We’re committed to delighting our clients, as much with our approach as with our solutions. Our values run through every aspect of what we do – from the moment you commission us, to the moment we hand over the keys.

Openness

We believe in transparency and openness and always seek to build a mutually trusting relationship with our clients.

Accountability

We take full responsibility for all that we and our partners do. We will treat your project and your home as if they were our own.

Flexibility

Sometimes the brief changes. We understand and embrace this and have a can-do approach to new challenges.

Assurance

We understand that you are placing your confidence in us and we take pride in completing all our work to the highest possible standard.
