Step 1. Planning & Design
An initial consultation
Greenlife Contractors offer a free site visit and consultation for our clients, either at your home or at our office in Parsons Green (Studio 2, South Park Studios, 88 Peterborough Road, SW6 3HH). This initial meeting will allow us to understand your goals and ideas, 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 property 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 team are available to support you each step of the way. 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 and designers 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. Greenlife Contractors provides the structural designs and calculations to create a practical blueprint for your new living space. When these detailed designs have been approved the job of construction can begin.
Not all plans are simple but our schedule of works gives a detailed and itemised list plus costings for key features and phases. Successful project management is all about communication. Greenlife 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.
