Building and Refurbishment Works for a Regeneration Project in Handsworth and Aston
This project was awarded to Mansell Construction services Ltd – A Balfour Beatty Company. After securing the contract, Mansell Construction Services Ltd approached us to complete the building and refurbishment works on number 2 St Peters Road.
Handsworth and Aston are part of a large regeneration project which has already seen improved safety, environmental and social activities.
As part of this regeneration Midland Heart has brought to life a range of traditional Victorian homes, many of which for the first time in 20 years are being brought back into use as family homes. Our involvement in the project was to complete all carpentry works, structural works, ceramic floor and wall tiling, underground drainage, boundary walls and all landscaping.
A new floor was then constructed, followed by scaffolding, which was erected to allow the completion of the brickwork up to roof level.
The next step was to break into the existing roof and build the new traditional roof structure, which would form the new bedroom and extension to the existing to the existing bedroom, giving Mrs. and Mrs Smelt the extra room they so needed.
In addition to the structural work, we also extended the central heating system to accommodate three extra radiators, updated the electrics including new lighting and sockets, completed all the carpentry work such as skirting boards, internal boards, internal doors, hand rail balustrade and an extension to the staircase and landing area so as to conform to building regulations.
The existing space underneath the stars was then opened up to allow for the creation of a cloakroom/WC as well as some valuable space used to house the washing machine and tumble dryer.
In addition to the structural work, we also took care of the additional heating, electric, carpentry, plastering and final finishing touches so that the clients had nothing to do other than decorate and then start enjoying the extra.
Projects manager of Mansell Construction Service Ltd told us
After a first initial meeting with John and he’s management team he advised us that they would be able to complete the works on time and in budget and to a high standard, having used John in the past on three other contracts, we were convinced he would complete the work and not let us down.
Once John’s team started work everything went quickly, smoothly and most importantly, without any hassle or major disruption, most of all on time.
Now the property has been completed to a high standard, and has been handed over to the client on time, we can safely say we would be using John and he’s team again in the near future.
