Side and rear extension with piled beams in Crawley
This project was a side extension, with alterations to the existing rear conservatory to suit the extension. The property is situated adjacent to 5 oak trees, all with preservation orders as well as being situated above to the public sewer feeding the neighbouring houses and main fresh water storm drain. We were approached by the client to manage the works and oversee the site complexities which included a piled and beamed raft to protect the trees and not affect the public drainage
The project was managed on a predominantly self build basis, though we advised on water board requirement as well as future proofing the layout (can be converted into a single house easily)
Included within the scope was also all the setting out of the works, including the foundations and brick work and roof, dealing with building control and structural requirements as well as value engineering the structural elements to speed up the build and reduce costs.
“Abbo dealt with the piling and water board for us, and then stayed on to help out with the management of the builders including incorporating our ideas to allow future alterations. We were really pleased with his efforts” A.D.
