A list of a few of our more recent Clients.
Large single garage to rear garden and extension to listed building,
the works progressed well although built over the winter period, all materials on the outside had to be in keeping with the existing due to the property being a listed building. In the earlier stages of the works, the foundations had to be 2.5Lm deep after a building control inspection due close proximity of trees and the general ground conditions, this changing the specification for the floor, which had to be a block and beam floor, so we had to act fast to these changes to keep the works on schedule. The works took a week longer than scheduled and slightly over budget.
Small front extension to enlarge kitchen, hallway and incorporating a wash room into this area.
A large part of the works was the drainage which had to pass under the new extension and as the contractor we had to ensure this worked perfectly as once the floor went down there was no going back. Thus project was under budget and completed on time.
Cart lodge dismantle and rebuild.
Dismantled existing cartlodge which was leaning significantly and near to collapse. Roofing tiles and red bricks were reclaimed and reused on new. Rebuild as existing with mainly new timbers, including oak posts as to appear as old. Works were completed within six weeks and on budget.
Mr & Mrs Fisher
The main barn prior to renovation was in a very poor state of repair and was leaning towards the single storey by 12 degrees, due to lack of bracing and exposure to the elements over 100s of years.
Full renovation to a 16th century barn including, underpinning and straightening of original oak timber frame structure. The main oak structure was mainly constructed out of materials reclaimed from existing, only sole plates and a few studs had to be brought in from sources.
The structure was straightened by the use of ground anchors in adjacent field and cables attached to the main center beam and winched slowly and monitored over the course of several hours.
Underpinning was achieved by a method which was designed by our company which was to supporting main structure on structural scaffolding and removal of lower studs, allowing mini excavator to access.
Other main elements of the works included insulating throughout, cladding externally and replacing the roof.
The works were completed within 12 weeks and on budget.
Conversion From Derelict Farm Building To Offices, Wattisfield
Premier Build was contracted to design, gain planning and building regulation approval for this project. As site was adjacent to a listed building, the finish result required, needed to be in keeping with the surrounding properties. All materials which were recoverable from site were reused in new work. The front side of the property was entirely demolished due to walls being constructed with modern bricks and rebuilt with reclaimed soft red bricks. As site was originally used as a cart lodge for a farm, to achieve a similar look oak posts and beams were incorporated externally. The works were completed May 2005 after 32 weeks of planning and building.
