Case Study 1

Bartellas - Restaurant Extension, Toilet Refurbishment and Private Fuction Room



Brief: Contruct a new restaurant extension to the side of the existing building and refurbish the new extension area. Convert the inhabited upstairs area to a function room, toilet and office. This project was designed by the architect, client and publican. 


Challenges: Timescales - priced 2 weeks prior to commencement and in advance of full planning and building control. The final price was agreed 3 days before work began on site and completed just 5weeks later.


"I've been heavily involved in some 300 restaurant openings over the last 30 years. I have never come across such a capable, co-operative, well organised, quality team who actually work with the end user and gets the job done on time, on budget yet in a professional and fun manner".

Case Study 2

Eco House Building


Brief: To build a bespoke eco-friendly luxury house using the latest specialist materials and make the property air tight to prevent the loss of heat. To supply and install a full heat recovery heating system.


Challenges: Due to the bespoke design and high end specification of this project many of the materials were sourced from specialist suppliers abroad with long lead times. All materials had to be preordered to arrive at the right time so as not to affect the programme.


Results: A spectacular eco-friendly new build house completed within programme that was featured on Channel 4’s Grand Designs.

The professionalism of the company is evident at all stages of the project and their skills ensure superior workmanship throughout.
