Rear Extension and Loft Extension
This was a partially tight access site as it was off a pedestrian ally and the works were through the main house and in the rear garden. The works consist of taking down the original outbuildings, hand digging foundations and over site, installation of concrete, external brickwork, steel supporting frame work, floor, new flat roof and internal plastering to the extension. Plus whilst onsite the client requested us to include the formation of a roof bedroom and dormer formation, installation of a new boiler and heating system, upgrading of the general installation to the house and the plastering of all other internal walls.
Whilst all of the works were completed on time, there was a particular issue with the designed steel frame to support the new 2nd storey bedroom and dormer. HCL spent a great deal of time with the local authority and structural engineer designing out the issues and finding a working way forward for all parties.
Overhaul client budget was 50k
Works too 12-16 weeks to complete
