2017 - HESWALL EXTENSION PROJECT

2017 – HESWALL EXTENSION AND REFURBISHMENT PROJECT

On behalf of private clients, we Project Managed the design and procurement of extensions and significant refurbishment works to a former Georgian cottage in Lower Heswall. 

Much of the repair works were triggered by the findings of a Building Survey we had prepared early on in the process.  This underscores the importance of having the correct survey undertaken prior to purchase.  In close collaboration with the clients, we prepared detailed designs and specifications for the works, secured Planning and Building Control Approvals before managing a competitive tender process.  The works were successfully undertaken by JFW Construction LTD based in New Ferry.

The project involved forming 2 extensions and carrying out significant roofing and structural works.  The complex process is set out in detail below.

1.  In consultation with the clients, select wall for new extension.

2.  Knock large hole through wall, ensuring it is big enough to receive new building. Put some metal bits above hole so wall doesn’t collapse, etc.

3. Stick new structure over hole, ensuring it is the correct building and appropriately sized for hole.HILLSIDE EXTENSION
