First step – Planning & Design
An initial consultation
We’ll come to your home or you can drop into our office at (Studio 2, South Park Studios, 88 Peterborough Road, SW6 3HH). This initial meeting will allow us to understand your goal, listen to your requirements and design the space you want. Our surveyor will then assess your property and discuss your needs briefly and the practicalities of the project. Within days of this initial consultation we will provide a detailed proposal with an estimated budget.
Design and schematics
This is where your ideas start taking shape. The architectural designs and schematics will give you an accurate picture of how your basement will look. When you’re happy with the plans and have approved the budget, we can apply for the necessary permissions.
These are important documents for you. We will always appreciate that this is your home and endeavour to minimise the impact the construction has on your life. Our schedule of works gives you detailed and itemised list and costings of key features of your project.We then produce an accurate timetable of what to expect and when that will enable you to accurately monitor progress. Finally we will estimate the amount of each valuation and give you predictions of when these are to fall due.
Planning and structural designs
Our team of Project managers, builders will manage this whole process: structural designs and calculations are drawn up to create a practical blueprint for your new living space and planning consents obtained so the construction can begin. This is the point your ideas take shape. Green Life Contractors provides the structural designs and calculations to create a practical blue print for your new living space. When these detailed designs have been approved the job of construction can begin.
Planned time frames
Our schedule of works gives a detailed and itemised list plus costings for key features and phases. Successful project management is all about communication. Green Life is a tight knit and efficient team and while we’re in your home we make sure that you are kept up to date and happy with our progress. Efficient communication avoids problems and delays and is the best way to keep to budget and schedule.
