Basements

Basement Construction – Design and Build

Over the last few years due to the rises in property prices basements have become very popular as a means for creating additional living spaces for personal living or for investment.  As part of our management works we are able to provide a complete project basement construction design service, from planning, detailed design, engineering solutions, specialist survey reports and the cost plans.  For more information please Contact Us  – We work across London and the home counties.

Our structural basement works are coupled with our other groundworks, foundation, underpinning, piling, demolition, structural steel, basement drainage, waterproofing and structural works.

There are various options where you can construct your basement –

Under your house basement construction:

We are able to excavate below your existing house to create a single level or a multi level (sub) basement to provide you with the space you need.  This can be done whilst the client remains in the property and the work is done surgically to minimise any disruption to the client whilst they are in residence.

We have a team of engineers who can design your basement together with the required temporary works and are also able to provide the expertise to help to formulate party wall agreements.  These are important since the work to extend the walls into the ground may involve an underpinning process to create the basement and this may require the underpinning to extend into your neighbour’s property.

 

 

Open Excavation – Under the Garden Basement:

We are able to offer the construction of your basement in your garden.  This can be done as an open excavation where the basement is extended beyond the boundary of the house and well into the garden.

The method of construction would be based on access to the site, the ground conditions and the residential area.  All these factors will determine the cost of construction and we will be able to advise you on the costs prior to commencement of any works.  We also advise that prior to the start of any construction that the boundary lines are clearly agreed with neighbours so as to avoid any difficult situations upon start of the works.
