This project consisted of a major basement development (over 2,500 sq ft) adding a complete new basement floor to a large residential house. Disruption to neighbours was kept to a minimum during extensive excavation works. All walls to the detached house were underpinned and a complete new floor added to the property. The new basement was waterproofed using the Delta membrane system with dual pumps. Underfloor heating was installed with full zone controlling and home automation links.
Structural Works included: Major re-modelling of existing roof to allow a full-length loft conversion; significant structural alteration to existing layout; Large-scale beam and column construction to allow opening between kitchen and conservatory.
We bought a new 4 bed house in Edenbridge and obtained planning permission to build a basement across the whole of the property. This allowed us to create a large Kitchen / Conservatory area with full views out onto the garden via a new lowered patio.
We were always concerned about any risk to our house and we also needed re-assurance that once the job started we wouldn’t be left with a job not completed. (We needed to live above the project). JK were recommended by my Architect as he had used them numerous times and they had always produced a really high quality job, on time and on budget.
The Directors of JK, John and Kris and their team were superb in their execution of the work and the key to their success lies in both their management of the site and the team. Everything was done exactly to plan and as agreed and Kris is the smartest and best turned out builder that I’ve ever come across! John and Kris are both very amenable and positive, always coming up with solutions when an issue arose. We were constantly kept up to date and they continued on site every day and there were no lapses in the program of works.
