Here at Berkley Build, we’re consistently able to deliver high-quality results in a timely manner. This success comes about thanks to the well-established process we employ, which sees a project move from a few sketches in pencil to a finished, real building. Naturally, among the most crucial stages of this process is the construction work itself – where a small army of skilled labourers carry out what’s been agreed upon during the design and architecture phases.
As you might imagine, the construction phase is among the most important of all, as it’s where all of the extensive planning goes into action. We’re able to consistently ensure that this phase proceeds smoothly and effectively.
Who Carries Out the Work?
The quality of a construction project is always going to be determined by the talents of those carrying out the work. We achieve great results by maintaining high standards when it comes to the builders we employ – each is qualified in their chosen specialisation, and has demonstrated an ability to produce exceptional results. By maintaining a sizeable list of trusted tradespeople, we’re able to quickly draft in some of the highest-quality labour that the capital has to offer in order to meet the demands of a given project.
The Importance of Management
As well as the labourers themselves, we should consider the supervising staff who help to direct them in the appropriate direction, and ensure that standards are maintained throughout the project. Our project managers can draw on a sizeable reservoir of knowledge and experience, and they’re able to co-ordinate the workforce, direct labour appropriately and ensure that our consistently high standards of craftsmanship are met. Even the best bricklayer, electrician or plumber can cause more harm than good without proper direction – and our team will ensure that they receive it.
During the planning phase, our architects will compose a detailed design of how the building should ultimately look. This will include millimetre-accurate dimensions and material choices. The quality of these plans will make the construction work much easier. Moreover, our architects will be on hand to address queries and direct labour, reducing the chance of costly error to virtually nil.
Through careful planning, we’re able to bring in labourers and materials in time for them to carry out their role in the construction process, but not so early that they impede other work. This helps to eliminate unnecessary storage costs, and ensures that each phase of the construction work is able to transition smoothly into the next: no-one, in other words, will be left standing around waiting for the opportunity to get started!
Will the Property Be Habitable During Construction?
Each construction project is different – and this is especially so in the case of bespoke developments. Depending on the sort of work being carried out, it might be possible for staff members to remain onsite and continue working – and you might even decide that you’d like to continue living in your home while it’s being altered (or even built from scratch).
In projects where the exterior of the building is being extensively modified, it might be necessary for residents to stay elsewhere while construction is underway. For more minor projects, however, onsite living might still be possible. If this is a concern, we’ll be able to account for it at the design phase and plan the project in order to minimise disruption.
How Long Will the Project Take?
The scope of the project will have an influence over the length of time it takes – but the relationship between the two isn’t always straightforward. Work can take place over large areas of a building simultaneously, but extensive work concentrated in a smaller area might be more protracted. We’ll give you an estimate of how long the project will take during the earliest phases of design. Thanks to our extensive experience with a range of building works, our predictions are almost always accurate.
Why Use Berkeley Build?
We prefer to take care of entire projects, all the way from design to turnkey. By offering everything as part of a single service, you’ll be able to neatly sidestep a great deal of inefficiency and waste. For example, many architects will insist on being present onsite to oversee the building. Bringing in two separate companies to deal with architecture and construction will therefore lead to extra expenditure.
By working with us, you’ll eliminate these costs, as well as a host of others that come about thanks to a lack of streamlining and central control. We’ve an experienced team of project managers and architects who’ll design a building that’ll meet your requirements, and devise a plan that’ll ensure that it’s constructed on-time, on-budget, and to the high standards we’ve long-maintained. If you’ve a construction project in London that needs the best possible developer, then be sure to get in touch!
