Summary

At Create we offer the following range of services.

  • Architectural Design
  • Party Wall Surveying
  • Project Management
  • Full Building Service

     Please find below a summary of each service we provide. If you would like further information or to arrange a free initial consultation, please contact us.

 

Architectural Design

At Create we believe the true value of a design process is to ensure that your needs, wants and desires are brought to life and captured in a project of real integrity. We believe it’s important for our clients to maintain control of the process, therefore how we provide our services is centred around that principle.

Working with clients in Hither Green, Lee, Blackheath and Greenwich over the past 10 years we have developed extensive experience with planning departments from both our local Boroughs of Lewisham and Greenwich. Our many years’ experience designing schemes in these boroughs, including both Lee Manor and Ashburnham Triangle conservation areas, means we know what will satisfy Council planning requirements in order to achieve approval for your planning submissions.

Our knowledge of local property, coupled with our desire for exceptional aesthetic, as well as functional details, means we are uniquely placed to develop designs that incorporate contemporary materials, products and styles, whilst maintaining and enhancing the period details that are a feature of many homes in these areas. 

Our architectural design service will guide and support you, up to and beyond when your building work commences, regardless of whether you appoint us to deliver your building project.

 

Party Wall Surveying

In the event that you or your neighbours wish carry to out building works The Party Wall etc. Act 1996 provides for a formal process between parties that facilitate these works and protects both parties equally.

It is a legal requirement for building owners to advise the owners of adjoining properties, in writing, by quoting the appropriate parts of the Act if they propose to carry out works covered by this legislation.

The process is designed to minimise any potential for disagreement or conflict in relation to your works and ensures that your neighbours cannot unreasonably prevent you carrying out these works.

Our experienced Party Wall Surveyor will ensure that you have an agreement that gives both you and your neighbours peace of mind throughout your building project, whether you are the person carrying out the works or a neighbour who has received a party wall notice.

We also offer a Condition Survey and Report Service, where the condition of the neighbouring properties can be determined prior to commencement of works. This is an enhancement of the Party Wall process and serves to reduce potential conflict with your neighbours during the project.

 

Project Management

Having a professional to manage your project on your behalf may not be something you have considered and yet could be one of the best investments you make. Having someone alongside you who understands the project at a technical level can be a great help in ensuring a successful outcome to your project.

A good project manager will be able to help you with making key decisions during the build, monitor implementation of high cost and technically challenging build items while also keeping contractors working to agreed timescales.

The scope of a Project Manager could also include things like the administration of any agreements (Party Wall Agreements) you might have in place with neighbours, as well as, what, as a householder, you are now required to provide in terms of health and safety for all who might be affected by your works.

At Create, through our professional Project Management and Contract Administration services you are guaranteed peace of mind in fulfilling all regulatory and contractual aspects and obligations within the scope of your work.

When using Create as your main contractor these services are included as part of our standard agreement. If you have employed your own contractor, our service provides you a third party professional to ensure both the interests and expectations of you, and your builder, are prioritised and met.

 

Full Building Service

As Master Builders, we know that a beautiful design needs skilled craftsmen to successfully deliver it.

With a management team with over 100 years of combined experience delivering high end construction projects you can be confident that our unique blend of expertise and experience means we deliver schemes to the exacting level of detail demanded by our clients.

At Create, we are not driven by price, rather we always seek to deliver a quality building service that ensures real value for money.

We believe that our work speaks for itself so feel free to browse some of our recently completed projects (in our case studies) to get an idea of exacting standards that we work to.

If you do feel that Create would be the right fit for building your scheme, then we can arrange for you to visit projects past and present to view our work and meet our clients.

Extension & Whole House Renovation

07/08/2019

We found Create’s details on FMB's website wanting guidance on an extension rebuild. We contracted Create Consulting to draw up plans and then took them to the council for a pre-planning meeting where they were pretty much approved there and then.  A great start!  Next we needed to serve party wall notices, we asked Create to do this on our behalf - it was the most stressful part of the project, and only a paper exercise between us and our neighbours! Create Developments couldn’t start work immediately so we got our own contractors to start refurbishment works. We soon realised this was going to be a big, time consuming project that could quickly get out of hand, financially and technically. You need one company to take overall responsibility for a project of this size. We ended up contracting Create Developments to help us with a complete renovation and extension, future proofing it for a loft conversion. Create delivered a detailed specification (32 pages!) with exact materials and costs, broken down into phases.  Once agreed, a project plan was drawn up and works started. We met with the team on a weekly and ad-hoc basis to go through works and where we were financially. Create was happy to work with a few of our own contractors – they provided technical oversight and managed them on our behalf. It turned out to be a blessing: who knew windows could be so involved! Building Control didn’t find a single issue on their inspections and when it came to our snagging list at the end, we could hardly find five things to put on it. Create’s builders were professional, neat and respectful of neighbours (we received compliments from neighbours – had scaffolding up and pavement blocked for almost a year!) and very accommodating with various requests we had. This was a big and expensive project. We are super pleased we engaged Create to help us realise our dream home. We will most certainly call on them in the future

Complete renovation, extension and garden landscaping

31/07/2019

testimonial - I moved into my house in July 2017 knowing that I wanted to do extensive work on it – a complete renovation alongside changes and additions to the internal and external spaces. As a single woman it was important to me that I found a builder that I could trust, who would listen and who was open and honest not only about the finances but also about the build options available to me – basically a builder who would have my best interests at heart and who would be as committed as I was to making the house into a home for my daughter and myself. The main challenge was getting planning permission to move the bathroom upstairs, which was not a given as we are in a Conservation area. Through Create’s expertise and experience we were able to achieve this relatively quickly and with only minor adjustments being made to the original plans and with neighbours being on-board with what would be happening. Create have been true partners in enabling my vision for what the house could be to become a reality. I would recommend Create to others because they care about their work, which is exceptional, but just as importantly, they care about people. They know that ultimately they are making homes for people to be and live their lives and they work hard to achieve this. For me, they have created a home that makes us feel secure, calm and happy – just thinking about it makes me smile.

Whole house renovation, loft & extension

10/07/2019

I employed Create to basically rebuild my house from top to ground and they worked hard to create a beautiful new house. Despite the length of time it took, I was always delighted with their workmanship and skills and their efforts to achieve what I wanted. They aspire to high standards in their work and were always unfailingly polite and pleasant to have around. They have also been excellent at dealing with any after care that needed fixing. I couldn’t have hoped for a better result.

EXTENSION, LOFT AND FULL REFURBISHMENT

23/05/2019

The team from Create were excellent, striking just the right balance between experienced advice and helping us to implement our own ideas for our home. Throughout the whole project we were kept informed of progress and consulted on important decisions. We always felt in safe and professional hands.

VICTORIAN FLAT REFURBISHMENT

23/05/2019

We’re delighted with the work Create did on our home refurbishment – an ambitious renovation of a Victorian conversion flat, conducted whilst we were in residence. We provided the design and left them to solve all the tricky details of implementing it. They are real problem solvers and carry out their work with precision and ingenuity. The level of service is very high – when the unexpected happens (as it often does when working on older buildings) their ‘can-do’ approach will save the day! Create are thoroughly professional in every aspect of their work and their business. There’s no question of hidden costs or jobs left unfinished. Most importantly, they are a nice bunch and very easy to work with. If you value good workmanship, an eye for design detail, and the certainty that your project will be carried out to the highest professional standard then look no further than Create.

Extension, Loft & Refurbishment

14/05/2019

You get what you pay for with Create, the attention to detail and quality of the finish are of the highest standard. Our project was challenging from the onset because the properly is in a conservation area and despite numerous planning submissions and appeals I was ultimately not permitted to do what I wanted to the loft space (through no fault of Create) and so I was left with a very awkward space with limited head height. Create came up with a brilliant solution for the space and created a beautiful spare room and en-suite that I am very happy with. The project management throughout the build was streamlined and efficient, I always felt Create were on top of things, the communication was great. The budget was transparent and all costs were signed off by us ahead of any work being carried out, there were no surprises. The wider team and all Creates contractors were courteous, professional and friendly.

Extension & Refurbishment

14/05/2019

Create managed the replacement and extension of our kitchen, a complex job including the introduction of new structural steel work, the installation of a roof-light plus bi-fold doors and a wet under-floor heating system. They also built a feature brick wall using re-cycled bricks from demolition and installed a new limestone floor, kitchen cupboards, granite works surfaces, plumbing and electrical appliances. Andre and the team managed the project from inception through to installation and snagging and their scrupulous attention to detail throughout was exceptional. Their willingness to meet on site to discuss matters as the project progressed was also extremely helpful. Create’s team were friendly, accessible, supplied clear and accurate cost estimates, tightly managed the project and were meticulous in ensuring perfect finishes.

Testimonial from client:

We found Create’s details on the FMB's website and initially contracted their Consulting arm to assist us. It was a great start! Their Developments team couldn’t start work on our project immediately so we decided to get some contractors of our own in to start refurbishment works.  We soon realised that this was going to be a very big and expensive project and we are super pleased that we changed our mind and decide to engage Create to help us realise our dream home.   

 

Create’s builders were very professional, neat and respectful of neighbours (we received compliments from neighbours – had scaffolding up and pavement blocked for almost a year!) and very accommodating with various requests we had. We will most certainly call on them in the near future to complete our loft conversion.
