SJP Builders are able to take on the full responsibility for all aspects of house building, refurbishment and extension.
This process starts with having the plans for the building work drawn up. SJP Builders has a connection with a very competent architect who will draw up the plans for the building work you require. We will visit you and discuss the objective of the work, whether it is new build, house extension, garage conversion, barn conversion etc.
We will listen to what you want to achieve and advise on the design options available to you. You can then select the option that suits you best. You will need to take into account issues such as your budget as well as your personal taste in the look you require for your house.
SJP Builders then work with the architect to draw up the plans for the building work required. We will go through the architect’s plans with you and when you are happy to proceed we will submit them to the local council for approval. Depending upon the nature of the building work involved, we may need to bring in a structural engineer to advise on the technical and practical aspects of the proposed building work.
SJP Builders will liaise with the local council planning officer to cover any queries and to incorporate any of the planning officer’s requirements into the plans in order to get them passed. We maintain liaison with the council, arranging onsite visits and meetings with the building inspector to ensure compliance with building regs as the building work progresses.
When planning consent is granted, SJP Builders will set out the building plan, organising all material, tradesmen and equipment for the building project. We manage all aspects of the building project including groundworks, drainage, brickwork, plumbing, electrical work, joinery, glazing, kitchen installation, bedroom fitting, plastering and roofing.
We also deal with all utilities – gas, water and electric. We organise all utilities installation or modification by registered contractors and take care of all the certification of work as is now required by building regs. Certificates are required for gas, electric, windows and doors.
Finally, we can complete your building project with decoration, landscaping, decking, patios, conservatories, driveways and other external detail that you require to complete the effect you are looking for.
