Groundworks are the first step in preparing a site for construction. Levels are set and locations for drainage and foundations are determined so that earth can be removed in order to build out of the ground.
Once the groundworks are completed and drainage laid, concrete is used to form the foundations upon which bricklayers can build the sub-structure and super-structure of the building. This role requires physical strength, an eye for detail and creative flair.
Once the brick and block work is complete, roofing contractors are able to construct the roof in accordance with the architectural drawings. In order to ensure the stability of the structure, the correct materials are to be used from steel to bespoke trusses, topped off by a covering to suit the design.
Once the walls and roof are complete, the windows and doors need to be installed in order to seal the house. They come in a wide variety of styles and dimensions and are a really visible enhancement to the finished project.
Joinery covers all aspects of woodworking within the project from the heavy duty functional trusses to support the roof to the intricate decorative carvings within the final finish. Doors, skirting board, internal walls and timber cladding are just a few of the tasks which a joiner must complete.
Plastering provides the walls and ceilings with a small finish for the decorators to paint or wallpaper upon.
Tiling creates an asthetically pleasing waterproof finish to areas such as bathrooms and kitchens.
Painting and Decorating is the final job and can make or break a project and depends a great deal on the quality of the work of all the trades prior to it.
