Case Studies

Upper Basildon, Berkshire.


The Project:

Conversion of a simple bungalow into a substantial family residence. The works comprised of the removal of the existing roof structure and extending 'sky-wards' to create a large master suite whilst ground floor remodelling works created two new suites, extended living area, counter current spa pool, office, double garage and car port.


The project involved extensive structural alterations to accommodate the first and extended ground floors. The roof cladding is a standing seam zinc roof covering, with the timber cladding being from Douglas Fir and renderutilising 'through coloured' STO render. All windows and bi-fold door sets are of aluminium construction.

Some unique features of the property include heating via air source heat pumps, inclusion of counter current spa pool and gymnasium area, cantilevered 'open tread' feature staircase, electrically operated 'north light' windows and glass room dividing partitioning.

We are proud to confirm that this project won D`Urberville Ltd the Southern Counties 'Large renovation projects' award in the Federation of Matser Builders 2012 competition for this project.

Old Basing, Hampshire.


The Project:

Construction of a two bedroomed master suite, extended living area, side utility and terracing.


The construction process in this building involved the piled foundations for the curved wall extension, living area extension and the utility side extension. The reinforced concrete ring beams, (some curved), were then cast with beam and block slab above.

The unique element of this build was the use of a ground source heat pump with the heat collector coils placed within an adjacent stream, (therefore making this heat pump a 'water source' heat pump). This provided the hot water and under floor heating to the new areas on both ground and first floor levels.

The two frameless glazed screens were clear floor-to-ceiling screens offering uninterupted views from both the new master suite and the new garden room under.

Other aspects of the build include vertical zinc cladding, single ply roofing membrane on cut-to-falls insulation, VELFAC ultra high performance windows and wet under floor heating to both levels.

We are proud to confirm that this project won D`Urberville Ltd a 'Highly Commended' award in the Federation of Matser Builders 2010 competition for this project.
