Key issues

Great care had to be taken due to building close to both public foul and storm sewers at the rear of the building. Furthermore the foul sewer at the side of the ex- house had to be diverted has it was conflicting with the new house foundation footprint. There were concerns from residents that the building would have a detrimental effect on the street scene, but the design and quality of build proved this was not the case as stated by the client: 'There were objections submitted against the planning permission but since it has been built I have had a number of people comment about how impressed they are with the finished build and how well it fits in'.

What our customers said

Mr M. Sprostson, "I had a number of meetings with them before the build started they offered advice and pointed me in the right direction when I needed to contact the local authorities and utilities suppliers. I was kept updated on the progress and chatted to them most days when they would tell me what had been done and what was planned over the next few days. I am very impressed with my new home and the standard of work that was carried out. Should I want any other work doing I would have no hesitation in using the same company and have already recommended them to others."

What our team thinks

John Egginton – Building Control Surveyor , "M&S Taylor completed the works to a high standard. Building regulation inspections revealed very high standard of workmanship and Steve Taylor was always on hand to answer any questions that building control had. Steve is always keen to know that we are satisfied with the standard of workmanship and that building regulation requirements had been met."
