A selection of our recent building projects
Residential refurbishment project in Kidsgrove, Staffordshire
This project, which took three weeks to complete and was created in line with a set of building regulations, involved creating an open plan kitchen and living area.
The two existing rooms were stripped back and made into one single space. The removal of an old steel lintel was required and the installation a new one. Structural work such as this is a major undertaking and also involved reinforcing the floor above at the same time.
Due to a previous extension, examples of old plumbing and electrical work were found to be inadequate for the new building improvements so a complete rewire of the electrics was required and extensive plumbing work involving the replacement of pipes and relocation of the soil pipe. These issues had to be resolved before moving forward to the next stages of the project.
The old kitchen and dividing wall were completely removed and due to the issues arising from the plumbing and electrical work, the brickwork and staircase needed replacing in a number of areas. After taking the room back to basics, the plastering could be then be completed before the floor could be levelled and tiled and the kitchen fitted to a specific design.
On completion of the project the client was very happy and left a review on our Facebook page which can be found here.

Residential kitchen design and installation in Mow Cop, Staffordshire
This bespoke kitchen was designed and installed by Wayne. The quality and craftsmanship of the finish is from his many years experience in the building trade.

Old brickwork and cement were also replaced where required.
After the initial building work was completed, the plaster boarding and plastering could be done. The plumbing work required for the new kitchen was undertaken and a Belfast sink fitted with a new waste pipe. To do this a core was drilled through the wall. The solid oak worktop, floor, architrave and skirting boards were then fitted. The team finished the job by decorating throughout.
