This project was carried out for old clients of ours. In the very early days of RENOVA we met these clients at The Ideal Home Show and we carried out some modest improvements to their home. We were very glad of the opportunity at the time, and they were pleased with the works then too.
Almost 8 years later, we were pleased to be contacted again, this time for a full deep retrofit renovation.
Our clients loved their home and anyone would have said that it was gorgeous, but it was cold and everything was beginning to get dated and would need replacing in the near future. They were keen that their home would be as energy efficient as possible too.
So, they decided to engage us again and to bring their home up to modern standards with all new fittings and finishes, in one go. We were delighted to get the call and the process began.
The budget was agreed within a month and the design stage started. The design process took three months, followed by contracts. Our stages 4 and 5 took two months to complete, so we were on site approximately 6 months after first engaging. Construction took a little over 6 months to complete.
The job was handed over on the very day that was proposed when we started on site.
