Lovelace Rd, SE21

This project required the construction of a basement in order to create a two-story ‘Granny Flat’. Initial works included fully supporting the existing detached residential property, then excavation with full temporary works propping. Difficult access presented an additional challenge for soil removal. Major structural support was required throughout as all sections of the new ‘floor’ were located in the main support walls of the existing property. Fit-out included completely new services throughout including underfloor heating. The addition of a bespoke balcony (where the original rear door had been!) added a finishing touch to the project.



Client Testimonial

JK Construction’s team completely re-built the internals of an existing 1 story flat and added a full-floor additional 1 storey basement extension for us in early 2012. As I am a little elderly my requirements were for many ‘non-standard’ elements (stairs / openings). Throughout the project I found JK’s helpful ideas and suggestions really helped me get the solutions I wanted. The final design was a real team effort.

The builders were efficient, conscientious and professional and I am very pleased with the quality of the completed work. Problems were corrected without even having to bring them to their attention.

I have no hesitation in recommending JK Construction Ltd. to our friends and family. I would be pleased to employ them again should the opportunity arise. A very satisfied customer.
