Residential construction projects are at the heart of this business. Having developed from the first generation of Hawkers providing bricklaying services for many years, Mike decided he wanted to provide a dedicated service that would deliver all aspects of a client’s project. On top of that we would work with the client to provide advice, keep on top of budget and ensure the project was delivered within programme.
Over the years we have successfully delivered every type of project a residential client could require. This includes, Barn Conversions, New builds, Extensions, refurbishments, insurance works, remodelling and restoration works.
We will work with your architects or we can advise you of architects we have worked with before. We are also able to offer our services on a design and build basis should the project lend itself to this approach.
We provide a fixed price quotation on all projects and itemise clearly what is (or is not) included within that price. Before commencing a project we will insist on a pre start meeting where we will go through the quote in detail with yourselves and your allocated project manager. We find this starts the project with a clear understanding of all parties responsibilities.
Where a contract is not proposed by the client (or client’s architect) we would work to the JCT homeowners contract. This is a very simple contract written in layman’s terms so that it is very easy to understand and is written very much with the homeowners’ interests in mind.
