Case Studies


3 Storey Victorian Renovation project


This prominent property within the 'The Hastings Conservation Area' involved extensive structural repairs, including replacing many of the ornate mouldings and detail work. 

The existing concrete roof tiles were removed, insulation was fitted within the roof space to meet current building regs. Spanish slates were used to cover the new roof whch are in keeping with the Victorian era. Remedial work was carried out to the chimney and firewalls and painted to finish.

The existing windows were replaced with bespoke Aluminium powder coated replacements, meeting the requirements of the Conservation Officer.

The fascade was rendered using a lime render, allowing for a more natural finish but more importantly allowing the property to breathe. Once cured, a breathable paint system was applied for a bit of colour!

Premium metal guttering and rainwater pipe were fitted for style and longevity.

Key Features:

Structural repairs 

New slate roof & leadwork 

Bespoke windows

Breathable lime render & paint

Premium metal rainwater goods.



Extensions with internal alterations


The overall objective was to create, modern, contemporary additions to this stunning detached property.

To the rear and sides elevations, a single storey extensive was constructed to accomodate a 50+ metre open plan kitchen with adjoining utility.

To the front elevation, a further single storey extension was constructed to make way for a grand entrance with a balcony above. 

The exterior, including the existing structure was finished with a coloured render.

A mixture of fixed glazed panels, sliding and bi fold doors, including a roof lanntern were installed, to allow for additional natural light giving easy access to the outside entertaining spaces.

A special feature of the build was the design of the external lighting, which certainly sets it off.

Internally, the property was subject to complete rewire, new underfloor heating, with many structural allterations and was fully renovated.

The clients vision and design should be congratulated for a truly outstanding end result.


Farm outbuilding


We were asked by our client to design and build a new outbuilding for secure storage, to replace the old run down cow shed.

The site of the proposed outbuilding was cleared, footings excavated and new power supply run internally.

Ready mixed concrete was pumped to footings, including a 150mm slab. Concrete blocks were laid incorporating a dpc with an opening for the door and frame. The new cut and pitched roof was fitted and tiled to match existing buildings on the farm.

New power and lighting were installed along with a new door and frame and guttering to finish.






To remove the existing kitchen and make way for a stunning open plan kitchen/ dining entertaining space designed by our clients.


The existing areas were fully stripped back to brick with ceilings removed.

To rejig the windows and doors to the rear elevation to new design.

New power and lighting was installed, including zoned primary underfloor heating.

The floor was levelled and tiled using a natural stone to compliment the new kitchen.

The vaulted ceilings were insulated and plastered as were the walls.

A handmade kitchen was fitted along with cream stone quarz worktops.


A truly stunning entertaining space, which works well for our clients.









Period restoration project



To restore this beatiful, yet neglected period property in Battle.


To remove the old fireplaces, flooring, joists, studwalls and plaster finishes. 

Structural repairs were caried out to all affected brickwork with new lintels fitted.

New ventilation was introduced and floor joists fitted. The client was able to source reclaimed floorboards which we fitted over the insulated floor.

The old openings for the fireplaces were made bigger to make way for two new log burners complete with liners. The chimney was restored and pots fitted.

The walls were treated for damp and fully replastered with lime render applied to the inside of the fireplaces.

The reclaimed floorboards were sanded and finished in oil.

New joinery was fitted throughout and the property which was then fully redecorated.


A stunning property, fully restored and tastefully furnished by our clients.


Good repair work on a Victorian house that had been cheaply renovated about 16 years previously. This included removing the ground floor to place joists, lintels and new floorboards, work on chimneys and solving various problems that were not obvious, such as installing air bricks, moving a gas boiler and creating plaster work to match the original mouldings. This required taking the initiative to investigate hidden problems as well as solving them.”








To create a sizable dining room and extend the existing box room into the garage, with access to the remainder of garage and utilities from within the home. Our clients were having to access the washing machine etc through the front of the garage which was becoming a chore! 


The existing dividing wall was demolished and rebuilt with new floor joists fitted. A new door and frame and window fitted. Services extended with new insulation, plastering. New laminate floor and joinery fitted with decorating to finish. 


A goodsize dining room with an eight seater dining table with  access to the garage from the home. 

Having worked with hundreds of builders these guys were totally professional they gave advise and far surpassed the normal levels of workmanship normally seen in this sort of job. Turned up on time every day, cleaning up behind them again every day. If you’re having work done, you must give these a chance to quote. I guarantee you won't regret it.




Modern refurbishment



To modernise this large detached property in Westfield, East Sussex.


To remove all the artex finishes to the walls and ceiling and full stripout the interior.

The property was fully rewired with a new heating system fitted. 

The original staircase was removed to make way for a stunning glass and oak replacement. The property was fully insulated, plastered with new joinery fitted throughout. The parquet floors were revitalised with the property subject to a full redecoration. The heating and lighting had been installed with smart technology controlled via the clients i-phone.


A truly stunning property, fully transformed with all the lastest building and technical advances of modern day living. Our clients were delighted with the end result and have received positive reviews from their friends and family.



Alan Norton of Equilibrium quickly understood what we were looking for in the renovation of our house and Alan and Simon surpassed our expectations in delivering our project on time.


Having been told that renovations can be stressful, we found that working with Alan and Simon was an enjoyable time.


Alan had a very good working relationship with all the other trades and they were all very well informed of that was required of them and time coordinated very effectively so that the project was completed on time.


Alan consulted us on every decision and nothing was a problem even when changes were made.  We found Alan to be sound and cost effective and both he and Simon brought flair and experience to the project


It is obvious that Alan and his team take pride in their work and genuinely enjoys refurbishing houses and satisfying their clients.


Loft extension



To extend the current loft space within this Victorian property.


To reconfigure the supporting roof timbers, creating a large open plan living space. Adding velux roof lights for natural light. The whole loft area was insulated with services extended to create a comfortable, modern space, sympathetically designed in keeping with the rest of the property.


We were able to create a stunning well proportioned living space, with views over the townscape. Adding style and value to this stunning period property.


Really happy with the work, which was of a high standard. Alan organised drawings and building control as part of the project. Really efficient and professional service received from all the team at Equilibrium.
