Case Studies

Bespoke Extension


The extension below was very unusual as part of the weight bearing roof sits on a 100mm x 100mm corner post. The steel work involved within the roof space was very complex to achieve the look of glass flowing right through the new extension. The structural engineer designed the roof to canter leaver in to the main building to take the weight off the corner of the building. The extension was very complex and interesting to work on.We also constructed the patio and walling to the side of the extension.

wet room and single storey extension


The top picture was carried out for the local authority, the wet room was designed for a child with disabilities but also had to function for the whole family. In order to achieve this the existing bathroom was removed and replaced with the level dec system, this system has no step which allows the shower area floor to be the same level as the rest of the flooring area. This is achieved by gradient so no shower water escapes from the shower area. The second picture is a single story extension which was carried out for the police benevolent fund. The planning, architects drawings and construction was all carried out to an exceptionally high standard. The build went really smooth and was a pleasure to complete.
