“We contacted RENOVA in November 2015 to renovate our new house. We had an accurate indication cost for the works within 48 hours, and a detailed proposal within a week. RENOVA took control of the whole process and handled everything from the initial strip out right through to completion, including a final clean. They took care of the technical retrofit specification as well as the interior design. An otherwise stressful undertaking was made easy and enjoyable by the RENOVA team.”

PROJECT DETAILS

Brief

This house was suffering from neglect. It had been rented out for most of its life and had all the hallmarks of a house that no one had loved. RENOVA was asked by the new owner to transform it into a modern home. Effectively, they wanted us to rebuild the house completely. They wanted a new home in the old shell. The house needed to be comfortable and energy-efficient. It also needed new fixtures, fittings and decoration. The brief also extended to the driveway and back garden.

Retrofit

The clients agreed to a full package of retrofit works; dry-lining, new windows and doors, attic insulation, air-tightness and ventilation. A modern heating system was also installed, along with new electrics and low energy lighting. This was all agreed upon within one week of the initial consultation.

Finish

Naturally it took a little longer to select the finishes. A full package of finishes was required. Penny and our client selected all the finishes in the 6 week design phase before the works commenced.

End result 

The finished product is a brand new house. It has gone from being the worst house on the street to being the best. It is certainly one of the most energy-efficient and comfortable houses in the neighbourhood.
