about

Mayfield Road Derby

This Client came to me off the back of a recommendation from a previous client. They had purchased a bungalow on Mayfield Road in Derby specifically as a project to develop and move into.

The brief was to start from scratch and come up with a concept to enlarge and modernise the existing Kitchen and Lounge, and to replace the current out-dated Porch with a new, larger and more thermally efficient design. The wow-factor in this project was the scale of the vaulted ceilings across the full width of the building, which required specialist trusses be incorporated to achieve such a large span. The end result was well worth the effort, as the vaulted ceilings made the rooms so spacious, and allowed for the installation of overhead roof-lights, to maximise the natural light into the new rooms.

The project was taken through the stages of obtaining planning approval, building regulations approval, and from there coordinated with the structural design to a point at which the drawings were sufficient to price and build from.

This was my first project with this particular Client, and it was an absolute pleasure to have been involved. I felt we had a great working relationship from start to finish. I made sure he was kept in the loop for all decisions and queries. The result was a successful build and I look forward to any future projects the Client may wish to start.

The Client kindly left the following testimonial following the work:

Andy provided professional support from initial concept, through detailed design, to obtaining all required approvals for my bungalow internal reconfiguration and extension. In the course of doing so he came up with innovative suggestions that improved both the design and reduced costs. He acted as my agent with the Local Planning Authorities, Building Control, and Structural Engineers, dealing with them directly on my account. I would definitely use Andy again if the need arose and would recommend him without hesitation for the services he provided.
