Period Property Renovation

We can manage every aspect of your project for you so that you can stay focused on what you do best. We have been helping clients with top to toe renovations for a decade and a half, so there isn’t much that we haven’t seen. More importantly, we get a real kick out of remodelling tired old dames back to their former ‘Belle of the Ball’ status, and this is important because this fuels the stamina required for this style of project. We are well versed at updating within the original character of the home so that the final result delivers contemporary living, but doesn’t feel out of touch with the ‘roots’ of the house. There’s an art to getting this right, and a lot more to it than meets the eye, first off. Of course it’s critically important to understand the vernacular that you are working with from the start, whether it’s Victorian, Georgian, English Baroque, Tudor, Modern or other. With a full house renovation there are so many different strands to the project that need to be woven together seamlessly to create winning results. We have the supplier base to source effectively, the project know-how to affect the correct sequencing of trades and the project management expertise to orchestrate it all on your behalf. The piece de resistance is that we know intuitively what needs to be done at every stage to maximise real estate value. There are many key junctures in a project of this nature and if you can be sure that you are making the right decision at every turn then your efforts will be rewarded.

Best time to involve us?

With any character property renovation it’s best to involve us as soon as possible, so that with some insight into your project we can advise on best point of engagement. Usually the earlier the better, but every project will have its own requirements which we will be able to advise on. For example, a little internal remodelling can go a long way to making the most of your home re-design and it’s better to get this planned in up front. There is very little point on spending good budget on a home that doesn’t flow, so we need to make sure that the structure and the flow is right first. To do this effectively we will also need to know about you and your families lifestyles so that we can ensure layouts support your everyday needs. We can guide you on best approach and save you from some of the pitfalls, and a lot of the stresses and strains that can accompany a project of this nature.

Why work with us?

If you have a busy life and a big project then you need us. Through our front end workshopping process we work hard to understand your objectives for the project and your style affinities. You may have a vision of where you want to get too, but it may not be crystal clear yet. We help our clients find that focus, so that when the project work starts it’s straight sailing. This saves everyone time in the long run and precious budget, too. We are our clients greatest support through difficult projects.
