This project was based on a clear design-led premise: To allow the maximum possible light into a lower-ground / partial basement flat. The aim was to create a spacious, modern design, combining openness with privacy.
Challenges included: Major structural / Basement works with close surrounding residents in a quiet residential area and keeping good relations with neighbours during the works.
We were able to work closely with both the clients and their Architect: Ben Smith, to deliver a beautiful new flat to a demanding specification.
Principal works included:
I was recommended to JK by two of my friends who had previously used them. They said that JK were reliable and friendly and I saw and very much liked the work JK had done to their house.
I liked both John and Kris when we first met them and their quote was the best value of those we received. It was also very clear. We decided to choose them as a recommendation from friends and a positive connection on first meeting went a long way to convincing me.
The site was always kept very clean and they even managed to keep the neighbours smiling, which was no mean feat! Generally, the standard of works was heaven! What I particularly liked about working with JK were the smiley faces and friendly support.
By the end of the job, I most valued JK’s ability to stay friends, generally be supportive through a difficult process and feel like we’re all working together towards a common goal – and on all of that – JK get top marks!
Would definitely use again.
We have very much enjoyed working with JK Construction Ltd and, together, we have realised two ambitious projects we are extremely proud of. The JK Construction team has been problem-solving orientated at every opportunity and taken great pride in their work. They were extremely organised and very competent at identifying issues and overcoming difficult construction details whether it be waterproofing or contemporary timber cladding. We have two happy clients and look forward to working together again soon.
