Extension and Refurbishment
Shoreham, West Sussex

Fenice Design + Build worked with James and Emma as their design and build contractor to design a double storey extension to their four-bedroom home. The new extension will add a snug, utility room, walk-in-wardrobe and more space in the master bedroom. Using our in-house pre-construction professionals, we worked with James and Emma on the concept design, technical design and planning process.

Working with the client as a design and build contractor we were about to offer them cost-certainty through a fixed price. James and Emma found the concept and technical design process extremely helpful as it allowed them to ensure their ambitions for their home were realised.

The project includes:

  • Concept design and drawings
  • Management of planning consent
  • Technical design and cost planning
  • Demolition of existing garage
  • Construction of a two-storey side extension
  • Complete re-roof in Hawkins Staffordshire blue smooth clay tiles
  • Construction of a deck at the rear of the property to accommodate a hot tub
  • New UPVC windows and a set of aluminium French doors leading onto the decking
  • Plastering and decoration throughout the extension
  • New en-suite bathroom and walk in wardrobe carpentry

Fenice Design + Build service meant once we decided on what we wanted to build, we had one point of contact throughout the process. This made communication, decision making and therefore the speed of the programme a lot of more efficient and expedient, reducing the inconvenience of managing a construction project the traditional way.

Early engagement also gave us a detailed understanding of the work required to achieve our ambitions and most importantly an accurate cost.

The result of the Fenice Design + Build process is a finished project that I am sure we would still be talking about in the design stages if we went down the traditional route. When we complete other projects in the future, Design & Build is the only way we will look to manage our construction works.
