We can also take on any scale of work, whether it be a complete new-build, the addition of an extension, or the renovation, remodelling or refreshing of an existing space.

INTERIOR DESIGN

One of the joys of working with our team of designers is the opportunity for you to witness the way in which we at Design & Build London painstakingly realise your design vision. We continually help you to visualise how your project is developing, using computer-generated images, ‘mood boards’ and drawings. We can even show you accurate representations of how your furniture and lighting configurations will look. Needless to say, with our vast experience in the trade, we are able to design your living space in a variety of styles.

DESIGN BRIEF – The process begins with us helping you to visualise how your renovated home will look, and to imagine how you will live in it. From this initial conversation, we will develop a design brief in the form of a three-dimensional representation of your new living space. This will enable you to finalise your needs and aspirations.

DETAILED SPECIFICATIONSubsequent design work will produce a more formal specification, embodying the unique details of your specific requirements. You can be sure that this detailed spec will be highly personalised to your needs and aspirations.

MATERIALS AND FINISHES – The final stage of the process is to finalise decisions as to the materials and finishes that will be used. We can help you to select the look and the textures that blend perfectly with your living space, and we can also advise you on solutions that meet sustainability objectives. We believe that the look of your living space should complement and enhance your lifestyle, and not dominate it.

With a meticulous eye for detail and finishes, we offer outstanding, professional services:
  • ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN & PLANNING
  • FULL HOUSE REFURBISHMENT AND RENOVATION

WE CAN TRULY BUILD EXCEPTIONAL HOMES

*****
Having the full set of highly skilled builders and trades in-house enables us to fully control the entire build process, from the initial discussion of your requirements, to the final sign-off of the completed build. Rather like a Michelin-starred restaurant that likes to inspect every ingredient on its menu before it reaches the customer’s table, we jealously guard the quality of every detail of the service that we provide for our customers.

WE CREATE TRULY EXCEPTIONAL HOMES
The desire to bring all of our disciplines in-house was born out of a vision to help our clients create truly exceptional homes. Not unlike the finest restaurants in the world that control every element of preparation from field to fork. Sourcing the most delectable and rare ingredients and combining this with hugely dedicated and experienced teams, to produce unforgettable gastronomic experiences. These are precisely the service levels that our clients receive and have come to expect whilst working with us.

A FULLY QUALIFIED TEAM OF BUILDERS

Before entrusting any tradesman to undertake work in our company’s name, we go to great lengths to make sure that he or she can meet our very high standards. This includes a requirement to produce documentary evidence of certificates and accreditations.

We insist on every member of our team having at least 24 months’ experience, and that they are fully paid-up members of a relevant trade association. This is why you can have complete faith in our ability to deliver a good service.

We take seriously the fact that every member of our team is a company representative, and this enables us to maintain such high levels of workmanship and customer satisfaction.

QUALITY ASSURANCE

We have a Quality Assurance system whereby our clients rate each one of our employees on a scale consisting of 1 to 5 stars. We do this for a total of 6 performance indicators, which include workmanship, value for money and cleanliness. We also ask our clients for a written testimonial on the good points, as well as any points for improvement, arising from our service.

In the unlikely event that a client is not completely happy with any aspect of our work, we have a procedure in place to review the issue so that the matter can be resolved to the satisfaction of both parties.

If the conclusion from this process is that a member of our team has been found wanting in any way, then that person will cease to be involved in delivering a service on our behalf. This is how we ensure that our clients can have complete confidence in us as a company.

INSURANCE COVER

To provide our customers with complete peace of mind, we maintain all of the necessary public liability and building trade insurance covers. This added protection comes at no additional cost to you, so why not contact us today for a free, no-obligation quotation?

PLANNING PERMISSION & BUILDING REGULATIONS

Before a building project can commence, it is necessary to obtain any necessary Planning Permission to do so. This mainly subjective process will also determine the detail of what the project will finally look like.

The Building Control process, on the other hand, is more objective in that it relates to specific structural and technical standards contained within the Building Regulations. (In Scotland, it is a ‘Building Warrant’ that is required). Generally, a building either adheres to the regulations or it does not, although Building Inspectors do sometimes have some freedom to use their discretion.

PROJECT SIGN-OFF

The final act in a build is for a Building Inspector to visit the property and, if all complies with the required regulations, to issue a ‘Completion Certificate’. This is a certificate that must be kept in a safe place, so that it can be produced, on request, along with all planning consent documentation, in the event of any change of ownership. A Completion Certificate might also be required by a lender before a final payment is made, and might also be needed for warranty certification or for reclaiming VAT.
