Building Services FAQs

Building Services FAQs

How long does it take for budget costs to arrive? 

We prefer to make sure everything is in order from the beginning, which is why the first meeting is so crucial. After the site visit, we try to give budget costs within 7 working days.

I don't have any drawings and don't know an architect who can help me? 

Please contact us first so that we can arrange for an architect to visit your property and discuss your needs. They can provide guidance on any necessary permissions and clarify current legislation. They can produce a basic scheme drawing that will help you decide what will work best for you in terms of room sizes, layouts, and door and window placement, among other things. This gives you complete control right from the start. We can then visit the location and provide budget figures using this scheme drawing.

I already have a set of drawings, can I use these? 

Great! You're one step ahead of the game. Before making any further commitments, we can come to your site, examine your designs, and provide a budget estimate. After the site visit, we try to give budget costs within 7 working days.

How long does it take to put together a quotation? 

We aim to deliver a detailed price within three weeks of the site visit. This is contingent on the customer supplying particular details.

Is it possible for me to hire my own plumber, electrician, or other types of the subcontractor? 

We handle all components of the task since we've learned in the past that project management can be difficult to handle and can cause delays when working with other subcontractors. This may reveal the project's working schedule and timelines, which we will have defined when we gave the budget expenditures. With everyone's busy lives these days, we've found that it's best to place all components of the project under one company's control.
