Summary

Welcome to Halo, if you’re considering having any work done to your home, work or rental property, from an extension or refurbishment to a new build, our approach could well save you a considerable amount of money.

 

Halo was established in 2012 and has devised an alternative way of pricing a building project which is extremely detailed, a lot fairer, offers greater transparency and at the end of the project, our clients are provided with a full set of accounts showing exactly what was spent and who it was spent with, to the penny.

 

Most builders work on a quote and build basis or go through a lengthy tender process. Whilst this approach is considered the norm, it has many financial pitfalls and additional costs can be claimed by the builder for unforeseen extras because there is often insufficient information on the drawings to be able to provide an accurate cost. For example, a power and lighting specification or unknown drainage and foundation work. As the project progresses further and decisions/changes are made, your budget could spiral out of control if it’s not checked, managed and monitored properly. By working on your behalf to a pre-determined budget, we look to see how far we can make your money stretch without compromising on quality rather than hoping that whatever you want built can be done for the money you have available. To achieve this, not only could we manage the design process to make sure the project can be built to suit your budget, but we also manage the construction process, organize the trades and purchase the materials, help to manage your health and safety obligations, and actively look for ways to save costs and using any underspend from some elements of your project and applying those savings to any overspend on items that can’t be foreseen.

 

We do this by applying several cost saving strategies so by working to a pre-determined budget and keeping our clients updated throughout the process, we are able to advise if additional costs are likely to affect the overall budget.

New Self Build Detached House

05/12/2018

Using HALO Building Services took the strain out of project managing and organising multiple trades for my self-build house and allowed me the time to focus on cashflow, interior design and landscaping. HALO transformed a daunting task into a pleasurable experience. HALO were recommended to me by my timber frame supplier and soon proved they had local knowledge and contacts in all areas of the building industry and Building Control. They initiated design solutions, forged new relationships with 3rd party suppliers, liaised with the land developers, civil contractors, local Council and Utility Suppliers to ensure the works were carried out smoothly and efficiently. HALO progressed the works on site far quicker than I imagined, the only hold-up’s being insufficient design details (not part of HALO’s scope) and the wintery weather. I would highly recommend HALO Building Services because the whole team have high professional standards which are reflected in their conduct, safe working environment on site and workmanship of the building trades, plumbing and electrical installation. I would add that, HALO have integrity and initiative and I trusted them to make on-site decisions and keep me informed at each stage of progress as necessary and I found the excellent communication between us was a key to the success of delivering the project.
