Working with

architects

Our primary aim is to protect your interests.

Project walk-through

PROTECTING YOUR INTERESTS

We are very used to working with Architects and have a deep understanding of the building process, including working with most commonly used contracts. That said, we are very flexible and used to working on smaller less formal projects where a contract may not necessarily be appropriate.

In our thirty-seven-year history, there isn’t much we haven’t done on buildings of all types, on projects from £10,000 – £2m.

We invite you to browse images of our most recently completed project. This scheme involved converting an office building into eight high-end apartments in Peterborough City Centre for a private property investor client.

INTRODUCTION TO CARMELCREST

Carmelcrest is a professionally run, third-generation building company which has operated in the commercial sector for thirty-seven years and has a very good reputation in the industry. You can take a deeper look into the business at www.carmelcrestgroup.com.

The residential construction sector if often less regulated when compared to commercial projects in the public eye. This has led to a reduction in standards, service and quality delivered by residential contractors. It’s no wonder the majority of homeowners are nervous when undergoing major refurbishment in their homes.

That’s why in  2019 we decided to reach out to the residential market. Bringing our commercial ethos for quality and service to the market.

So what can you expect when working with Carmelcrest?  Read on to find out.

STRONG RESCOURCE

Carmelcrest are able to carry out many projects simultaneously. It is not unusual for us to have over twenty projects on at one time. This level of organisation has evolved as the company has grown over the years.

We employ site managers who are dedicated to each project; supported by a project manager who manage several projects, all supported by a strong office  team enabling us to give a high-quality service.

We have offices in Bishops Stortford, and branch offices in Cambridge and Peterborough.

QUALITY SERVICE

We offer fully itemised free quotations and are willing to attend site during the design phase to offer support and advice where we can. Our management team are very experienced and professionally qualified, the chairman being MCIOB and MRICS. Our service is friendly and professional, with an obsession for customer service. We understand that building works can be stressful for homeowners, so we go the extra mile to ensure peace of mind.

RESPECTING HOMES

Our staff are trained to respect clients homes and will go the extra mile to make the experience as stress-free as possible. Specifically:

• To be respectful at all times.
• To protect the health and safety of all parties.
• Protect existing finishes inside and out of clients homes.
• Minimise dust by sheeting up and using extraction.
• Book deliveries at times which does not cause disruption.
• Minimise noisy operations when inconvenient.
• Clean up after ourselves.
• Confine themselves to the work area.

AFTERCARE SERVICE

Our aftercare service is second to none. On completion of the work, homeowners will be given an operations and maintenance manual, which will include a dedicated office contact who will arrange for an operative to visit within 2 days or the same day in the unlikely event of an emergency, to inspect the work. Then arrange a convenient time to rectify the work. This service remains in place for 12 months after the completion of work.

COMMUNICATION

Frequent communication is important to us. The Site Manager is tasked with day-to-day liaison with the architect and with the homeowner when appropriate. Regular site meetings with our Project Managers are also useful to keep all parties informed. We have also found that a pre-start meeting with all interested parties to discuss the forthcoming work is very useful and leads to a smooth-running project.
