Building Work

 

Further to the maintenance our team regularly undertake larger building projects and refurbishments. We cover the full scope of works which include:

- Ground works and construction

- Block paving and slabbing

- Bathroom fitting

- Window fitting

- Plumbing (not including gas and boiler repair which is outsourced)

- Kitchen fitting

- Roof repairs and roof replacement

- Full internal and external refurbishment up to and including painting

 

Some landlords are looking for a full project management solution with minimal involvement from refurbishment right up to tenant move in. As a result we regularly provide the following:

- The organisation of carpet and vinyl fitting

- The purchase and construction (where required) of furniture and beds

- The purchase and fitting of curtains and blinds

Examples of our recently completed building projects are below:

Full refurbishment of a terraced house

This house was in a very bad state when we started. We began by returning all walls back to bare brick. The house was originally a five bed one bath and is now a five bed all en-suite house. All windows were replaced by us. Because of the new layout we had to re-position the stairs. A you can see from the final photos the results are stunning!

Replacement of a slate roof on a terraced house

The roof of the house had passed the point it was worth patching and repairing. The client chose a fibre cement tile. This proved to be a good balance of aesthetics coupled with affordability and longevity.

Flat roof repair and garage refurbishment

The client had an old flat roof which was leaking in several places despite numerous attempts to re-seal. Due to the large area we changed the fall of the roof to ensure standing water was avoided. The drainage had to be internal as per the existing arrangement and drainage Structural oak posts held up the original structure., these were removed as the client wanted garage doors fitted to tie in with future planned building work.

The passageway next to the kitchen was removed which substantially increased the overall space in the room

The old bathroom was moved to make space for the new downstairs room we were creating

Refurbishment of a semi detached house

The client had a semi detached student house which needed upgrading and remodelling. The layout was not very efficient and we offed up a proposal where we could adapt the living space and create an extra bedroom downstairs turning the hose into a five bed. This involved the removal of a passageway and relocation of the existing kitchen door.  

The flooring was replaced and levelled for the insulation, heat mat and tiles

The framework for the inset bath was created and covered in tile backer board

Fitting of a new bathroom

The original bathroom was not well laid out and there was a deep linen cupboard which robbed space from the room.  The fittings consisted of a basin, loo and a bath with shower above but no separate shower. We were asked to create as separate shower with as big a tray as possible and no door.  We halved the depth of the linen cupboard which allowed us to fit a 1500mm tray with virtually no step. We used an electronic mixer to control the shower. The bath was inset into a tiled deck which completely surrounds it. The matching marble effect wall and floor tiles give the room the high end look the client was after
