The advantages of Design & Build

The advantages of design and build include the following:

  • Design and build provides one point of accountability
  • One organisation procures your building project
  • This approach often reduces the overall project duration, because project planning can begin earlier
  • The budget is discussed openly at the design stage, which helps keep the project within budget. The cost implications of design decisions are also discussed openly. Once the scope of work has been finalised, the project costs are clear and controlled by the design and build company
  • The communication benefits from combining design and construction help to avoid mistakes and keep everything moving forward
  • Ambiguities are removed, because designer, engineer and builder are from the same organisation and the focus is on adding value for the client.

We’re sure you’ll appreciate how our services add value to your project and how our understanding of the business and financial aspects of projects, as well as a thorough grounding in construction technology, contracts and legislation, make us ideal leaders of the design and build process.

New Builds

Your project, your vision. It is our job to translate your architects drawing to an actual building with perfect symmetry. Built with high quality craftsmanship backed by professional management. We create a detailed week by week programme which is provided to our clients at the very start of the project. Any deviations are communicated and discussed with our clients. Any variations to the contract are discussed with clients, informing them of any cost or time implications.

Whether a modern, contemporary or a more traditional build, we have the broad range of skills required to deliver exactly whatever you need.

Our aim is to make the construction process an enjoyable one. As a company our focus is not just the quality of the finished building, but also the quality of service whilst getting there. We create a photographic documentary of each project – our Project Album - which we share with our client and architect, celebrating the successful completion of the project.

Lofts

Planning regulations in London have been simplified and as a result we are seeing day by day a lot of customers opting to convert there loft, with some households no longer requiring planning permission. TXR Building & Maintenance help establish the relevant requirements for your property, as it may be possible to convert your loft conversion under Permitted Development regulations. If you would like to add extra living space, increase the value of your home and avoid the stress of moving, we offer loft conversions that are of the highest quality in terms of design, craftsmanship and sustainability. Our work will not only give you additional space but will enhance both your property and your lifestyle.

There are several types of loft conversions:

  • Dormer and L-shaped dormer loft conversion,
  • Double mansard loft conversion,
  • Velux loft conversion,
  • Hip-to-gable and L-shaped hip-to-gable loft conversion,
  • Loft conversion with full back addition, loft conversion with pod room
  • Loft conversion with roof terrace
  • Mansard and L-shaped mansard loft conversion

The type we recommend for your property will depend on a number of factors – property style, roof height, available space, conservation area, local planning regulations, your budget and needs.

Kitchens & Extenstions

What’s your dream kitchen? Whatever your style or budget, we can help to make it happen.

Extending your kitchen? There are different types of extension for example the type we recommend for your property will depend on a number of factors – property style, available space, conservation area, local planning regulations, your budget and needs.

Below are a few examples for kitchen extensions.

Kitchen side extension

Sometimes called a side return extension, this is the most common kitchen extension in London. A side return generally involves building out to the side of the property and finishing flush at the back of the main part of the house. Clients can then choose to have either a pitched or flat roof over the extended section.

Kitchen rear extension

A rear extension is where only the end of the property is extended. This often gives a room approximately 5m x 3m (STPP) and can have huge roof windows to allow maximum natural light into the newly created space. Rear extensions can have either a:

  1. Monopitch roof
  2. Centre pitched roof
  3. Flat roof

L-shaped/wrap around kitchen extension

An l-shaped, or wrap around, kitchen extension is where the extension not only goes into the side addition but also wraps around the back extending sometimes three or four meters into the garden which can provide a huge kitchen living area looking out onto the garden. Usually side returns apply a maximum of around 2m wide in London so the additional space to the rear allows a much more sympathetic space conducive with the way most families want to live, allowing cooking whilst keeping an eye on the children watching tv or playing in the garden through folding sliding doors. There are two roofing options - either a flat or a pitched roof. Our favorite is the flat roof, which enables the same ceiling height in both the old part of the space but also the new, giving you a seamless sleek look.

Extending your home is becoming an increasingly popular choice with homeowners who are looking for more space, experiencing a change of circumstance or even just wanting to ‘spruce up’ a tired property. Home extensions can take many forms and can be used for any purpose that the client wishes, from a simple porch extension or conservatory to a complex multi-storey extension used for a garage, utility, kitchen, living & dining room. TXR Building & Maintenance are here to help you through the process to make sure you are fully happy and satisfied with your extension with over 200 projects successfully completed from kitchen extensions to that perfect conservatory you always wished for.
