property refurbishment london
Refurbishing your home or a property you own can be one of the most exciting projects you undertake. Often, especially in London, the high cost of moving homes makes refurbishment of your existing property the more sensible option.
Basement and loft conversions and home extensions and kitchen extensions are ways to increase the space within your home, but a reconfigure of your existing space… perhaps moving the kitchens or bathrooms to another part of the house or opening up two small bedrooms to make a large master bedroom, are ways to maximise the use of your existing space.
Not only will a property refurbishment alter the way you live and use the space within your home more efficiently, but is likely to increase the value of your home.
Whatever you decide to do with regards to your refurbishment, you will need a team of experts to help you. Architects, structural engineers, interior designers and builders to make your vision a reality.
In our experience, if you are embarking on a home refurbishment project, it is critical to be organised. Make sure you do all your research beforehand, so you know what look you are going for, what needs you have as a family in terms of living space and of course your budget.
We have found that it’s helpful to maintain a spreadsheet of materials, timings and costs so that you know exactly what’s going on with your project at every stage.
To help you with planning and managing your refurbishment project, we’ve designed a handy project management checklist for you to download. It’s free to access and we hope it will make the process easier.
SEAMLESS ATTENTION TO DETAIL
"I have worked with Sammy and his team on 2 projects i.e. one in London (a couple of years previously) and the other in the Oxfordshire, the 2nd project bigger than the first. He and the team, delivered within the agreed budget, and in the time-line proposed, and moreover to the highest of standards. He works seamlessly with architects, lighting companies, and garden designers, ensuring a well driven project."
In any building project there are a number of stages that we go through. From initial planning permission, design and build, and on-site inspections, through to interior design and the final finishes. We are on-hand to guide you from start to finish, to create the home of your dreams with a personalised touch to meet your needs and requirements.
During our initial consultation, we’ll talk you through your design options, and the process for gaining planning permission. Following that, we’ll help you with your planning submission and advise you on the structure and most effective layout, to suit your needs.
We’ll provide you with a quote and timeline for the build. Costs will include everything from applications and permissions, through to party-wall agreements, structural engineers and building regulations, so that nothing is left unknown.
Ahead of the build, we’ll have a meeting to kick-off the project, so that you know exactly what to expect. Our project managers ensure that everything runs smoothly and they will update you every step of the way.
We don’t just stop when the building work is done. We can transform the entire interior from top to bottom. We can also install AV and home automation systems to give your property the finish it deserves.
It’s important to us that our clients are happy, so our service doesn’t stop when the work has been done. We inspect the entire property with you, to go through outstanding snagging. Only when this is complete, is the project really done.
Every project built by Sammy and his team is unique and tailored the client’s requirements. We don’t have ‘off-the-shelf’ answers to your questions. Instead, we offer you open, honest and concise solutions that think outside the box.
