This high value project involved extensive structural basement works in order to create a new kitchen / diner opening out into lovely courtyard rear garden area. In addition, significant structural re-development of existing basement area to create: luxurious master bathroom with sauna, new utility room housing new heating (megaflow) system and new bedroom. New bespoke joinery and heating system throughout the property in addition to installing new re-claimed flooring on all floors. The project finally included replacement of many external windows doors and full re-decoration both internally and externally. Extensive renovation of existing stairs / handrails (French Polishing etc.) etc was also undertaken.
JK have done extensive works for me previously and have proved to be efficient, cost effective and able to bring projects home on time and within budget. So it has proven with this project. From the outset, they offered a clear program of works at an acceptable and realistic cost. Works commenced and followed our agreed timescales and were all carried out to a high standard. Whether works involved heavy basement construction or final decorative finishes, JK demonstrated their ability as a ‘one-stop-shop’, able to maintain a quality approach at all stages of the job. The job was finished in advance of the approved schedule and I am again happy to have worked with them.
CYMK Architects, London.
We have had the opportunity to work with JK Construction on a number of projects and found them to provide a very professional service. They combine the rare skill of competitive tendering with an exceptional and genuine commitment to the project quality. It is rare to fine honest contractors who don’t cut corners and hide problems away. JK Construction work with an open book policy, highlighting problems and suggesting proper, long term solutions.
This project combined extensive structural basement works in an area of London renowned for access problems and complicated Party Wall issues. JK, as usual, maintained good neighbour relations while at the same time progressing the works on schedule. At all stages communication with ourselves and indeed the client was excellent. They managed the range of specialist sub-contractors, from heating contractors through to bespoke joinery suppliers with tact and clarity meaning we had very few problems. Those that did occur (and they always do!) were dealt with professionally and without cost to the client. In short, we would happy recommend JK to other professionals and look forward to working with them again.
