Would we as the client have plans produced or would you do this?
If you have existing plans we will work with those, alongside your architect. If you do not have plans and require architectural services we can arrange to put you in touch with an architectural company who we work with which has been established for many years. They will complete an initial free visit to you to discuss your requirements and the feasibility of your plans. We would then introduce you to our architect who will discuss your requirements further and if you are happy to move forward the architect will produce plans.
How many people would be working on our house at any one time?
Every job is different and it is therefore impossible to give an accurate example, however, we try to maintain a balance between moving the job forward as quickly as possible alongside making sure your home does not feel overcrowded. Our tradespeople are multi-skilled meaning that often only one person is required to complete a number of different jobs.
How much disruption will the work cause?
Building works do mean some disruption, however we always take great care to ensure as little disruption as possible and maintain good standards of cleanliness at each stage of the work. When working on an extension all external works are carried out first, before the internal work, to ensure minimal mess and disruption in your home.
Do you use sub-contractors?
As the founder and owner of Creative Construction I carry out the majority of the internal works myself, alongside a small team. All other trades are carried out by qualified tradespeople employed by Creative Construction. We are not a company that merely project manage unknown sub-contractors.
How can I be assured you will carry out a
We pride ourselves on the standard of our work and have carried out hundreds of projects over the last 12 years. It is our aim that every job we complete will be a future referral. We are happy to give new clients details of recent jobs, enabling them to speak directly to our previous clients. All our electricians are NICEIC domestic installers (part P) and all heating and gas works are undertaken by gas safe engineers.
Can you guarantee the cost of the works?
We take a great deal of time pricing works we undertake to ensure we have an accurate costing. Our quotes do not include any hidden extras and any further work that clients decide they require as the project progresses would be discussed and priced accordingly.
Where can I get advice on the planning process?
We are happy to help with any questions you may have, however its advisable to contact your local planning department to speak to a planning officer. Alternatively, the website linked below can help with general advice on regulations, restrictions and planning.
