When undertaking any major work around the home it is always a good idea to have the work professionally project managed. This will include Architectural work, such as drawing and submitting plans, dealing with building regulations, the supply of materials and the overseeing of all work carried out. The project manager will also be your point of contact throughout the build. The way this critical task is handled will determine the success of any project.
There are many factors considered prior to a decision being reached by the local planning authority regarding development of a property. Therefore getting the necessary consent for any alterations that involve structural work should always be sought well in advance. At Clydewide part of our service is to help you to navigate this process and ensure that you have the correct planning permissions. We will make sure you are aware of the processes involved in completing conversions and extensions with the minimum of delay and expense.

So what should you expect when proceeding with work of this kind? While we endeavor to keep intrusion into your life to an absolute minimum there will be some unavoidable inconvenience.
Like any builders we will require access to water and electricity, we may also require some space to store tools or plant equipment. Additionally materials being delivered and skips for the removal of building refuse will need somewhere to be left. A certain amount of mess is inevitable however we will always leave you with a fairly tidy site at the end of each working day and we ensure that any work in progress is left with no wiring or plumbing in an unsafe state. We will put down coverings on any flooring which we require to walk on and you will not be left with dirt or debris in your living area.
We pride ourselves on keeping our customers informed of how work is proceeding, you will always have a point of contact who can tell you of any issues or changes to the schedule.
