I couldn't be more pleased with the work carried out by Build Team. From start to finish, Dan, Mark and the team ensured that we were kept informed of what was going to happen and when so I could organise my family around the works. I would say Build Team made it as easy and hassle-free as humanly possible. I felt like they really put themselves in my shoes to suggest ideas and solutions that would work for our house and needs. We're so pleased with our new extension and our dream open plan kitchen-family room.
Design Team were professional and informative right from the initial consultation through to helping us prepare our application for a loft and rear extension. David was constantly updating us on the progress and always had time to answer our questions. Pricing and lead-times are all clearly relayed back to us before any decisions needed to be made. Would definitely recommend Design Team for any future works.
My wife and I selected Build Team to manage the design and planning permission of our ground floor flat side return extension in SW London. Our architect, David, was excellent - extremely knowledgeable and always took the time to answer our questions in detail. Together, we landed a great design and were granted planning permission in February 2018. We are now using Build Team to help us manage the Party Wall process and will seriously consider using them for the construction stage, which we are now tendering. So, a very good experience overall and I would not hesitate to recommend their services. One thing worth mentioning is the house tours they offer - a great way to kick the tires on the quality of their work and meet the team.
We hired Build Team to develop the designs for a new extension on our ground floor flat. Their design advice was very helpful and professional throughout, and we have a design that we're very happy with. The planning process went smoothly and successfully, and so did the detailed design stage.
We hired the Build Team the undertake the first phase of our project (design) and have been very happy with the results and level of service. After shopping around for a couple of weeks and meeting with various companies we decided to engage the Design Team as it enabled us to complete the first phase of our project without commiting from the offset with that one company.
The architect we were assigned was very amiable and took on board all of our wants and needs. The team also helped ensure that our planning application was approved in record time, helping us push the boundaries when it came to gaining approval from the local authority.
We'd happily recommend the Design Team, who are capable in taking on a variety of projects from simple house extension designs to more complex and time intensive work (which ours proved to be in parts).
Loft Conversion - this was a our second project with the guys. A better team this time - and the quality was great and we have achieved exactly what we set out to do. They didn't do the decorating and finishing, but gave us a really well finished "box" to paint/tile bathrooms.
We've just used Build Team to undertake a large Mansard Loft conversion and complete renovation of a Victorian period property in London. We originally commissioned Build Team as they offered a one stop shop design, build and project management service which met our needs as we were based overseas when we initially started works. From initial design concepts, through to planning, the process was well managed and we achieved planning permission first time around. The build phase concerning the loft was completed on time and on budget. Renovating the old parts of the house posed a much bigger challenge and we quickly learnt that bringing old buildings up to spec takes time and comes with unforeseen costs. That said Build Team were able to solve all of the challenges they were presented with during the renovation and we are very pleased with the end result. Marta was a superb project manager keeping us informed on timings and progress throughout the build, she's also been extremely quick to help correct any snags which have shown up. We'd definitely use Build Team again. Top job guys well done.
Fantastic company, highly recommended.
Very professional and delivered on everything that they promised. A five star service from beginning to end. Never leaves you in the dark, always felt that they explained things to me in a clear and concise way.
I heard about Build Team through one of their house tours. They had made the most of a compact living space. The team on site were helpful when discussing my own project which is a two storey side extension with ground floor kitchen extension. They are experts in side returns and lofts but have easily adjusted to the larger scope of our project. David, our architectural designer, has listened and responded to requests and changes - it's such a detailed process - he has been patient, insightful and always available to answer questions or refine ideas. We are now in planning! We went for the entire design service, drawings, planning apps/prior approval, interiors, landscaping, Party Wall - and will invite them to tender for the build. We are excited about seeing our home transformed.
Can’t recommend Design Team (and particularly Steven) more highly. They worked very closely with us to design our project. Really impressed by the time given to answer our questions and meet with us to discuss the design. Steven was always happy to answer questions and rework parts of the project. We are very happy with our final design and they made the planning process completely seamless. Many thanks!
We asked Build Team to manage our design, party wall and the basic build for a side return extension on our Victorian terrace. In the design phase Steven was excellent – very clear and knowledgeable and provided a number of useful suggestions.
We had quite specific requirements since our house is on a slope and Build Team managed these excellently. The build phase was also an extremely positive experience. Marta, the project manager was clear and efficient and knew every detail of the build. We would definitely work with her again. Even where there were unforeseen issues, she was quick to offer solutions with a range of options and gave us flexibility to choose whether we asked Build Team to do the work or if we preferred to find our own contractor. She was very prompt at responding to queries and the after care has been of an extremely high standard.
The builders were all very trustworthy and did a great job. Ben in particular was a pleasure to work with. The builders installed a temporary kitchen and protections for our hallway, including a temporary door and frame to minimise the dust which got into the rest of the house. This was essential and really made living in the house during the build manageable and helped protect the house from damage during the build.
It's the second time we've used Build Team. Straightforward design phase. David, our architectural designer, was helpful and knowledgeable. He responded quickly to requests for changes and refinements of the plans. Ben's building team were great: courteous, tidy and thorough. Excellent quality of workmanship. We were unlucky with our project manager as she didn't have sufficient knowledge of the building process, but Build Team recognised and rectified the situation. We are delighted with our new kitchen extension.
Build team did our house top to bottom, and were very professional throughout. Marta did a great job at project managing, and was always organised and on top of things. A lot of things I wanted were not easy and they managed to deliver a really high end product.
Thank you, I love my house!
Build Team was professional and efficient. I was looking for a quick way to add space and light to my home, and I found a great solution here. Build team made it happen. Thank you!
The team have been responsive, flexible and accommodating throughout the process - and when I compared prices they were also good value too!
Excellent and efficient service, very friendly and with great ideas. Does exactly what it says on the tin!
We are absolutely thrilled with how fantastic everything looks and how light and bright our new kitchen is!
The whole process has been fun and painless. Build Team have been great and I have and will continue to tell my friends and colleagues what a great experience we have had with them. I would be happy to offer any potential clients the opportunity to visit my property or speak to me about the process. Myself and my partner want to thank Build Team for designing and building a great new space for us in record time! Thanks again for all your support, help and making the process fun.
We used Build Team for the design phase of our project. From the start, they stood out by being proactive, efficient and reliable. Planning permission was obtained relatively quickly despite some last minute amendments. We were kept updated on the progress of our application. Meetings to discuss the next phase were arranged automatically. We never felt we had to chase and they were always ready to answer any queries and provide advice. We cannot fault them.
I chose Build Team for my loft conversion after having been recommended to them by a friend. With it being my first conversion it was a little intimidating at first but they were extremely helpful and guided me through the planning process. They were very professional on site and I particularly liked the comfort of having them project manage the work as I was so busy with my job. I was delighted with the end results and would definitely use them again.
We are delighted with the new side return extension that Build Team produced for us. The work was of high quality and delivered on time. They were able to give us useful and relevant advice on the design both at the outset and during the build. We now have a beautiful, light-filled and spacious designer kitchen which everybody admires.
We live in Balham and following completion of our Loft Conversion, wanted to extend the kitchen and infill the side return. Our engagement with Build Team was professional and efficient from start to finish and we would definitely recommend them to other homeowners who are considering undertaking a kitchen extension.
The work was very professionally done, and it was a great pleasure working with Build Team. We will definitely recommend them to others!
I’d had discussions with various architects before this, but decided to opt for a specialist firm which offered a one-stop shop and which had a lot of expertise in side returns. I’ve been impressed with Build Team’s service. Staff tend to be super-efficient and keen to sort out queries fast. They advised me to go for full planning permission and the process was entirely problem-free. I’m sure this was in part because of their expertise in handling these kinds of applications, and knowing what Islington Council required of them in advance.
We have had such a delightful time since we talked on the phone at the beginning, throughout the design, the planning permission, the digging and the putting up of joists, to the putting in of bi-folds, to the end. Our builders were superb, their ethos was "if we wouldn't live with it, we wouldn't do it." So they have been perfectionists throughout and good company to boot! Yes, it has been dusty, as you would expect that, but the builders have been tidy, punctual and cleaning up as much as possible at the end of each day. I adore what they have done, absolutely no regrets at all!
We used Build Team for the side return extension of our flat. We're really happy with the end product and the space it has added to our living area. The tradesmen onsite were professional, hard-working and reliable.
The work was done quickly, professionally and they kept to the (very reasonable) price quoted
I was looking for a London based company who could oversee our kitchen extension from design and planning through to build. Build Team offers this continuity which was extremely appealing. We have only gone through the first stages of design and planning but have been extremely impressed by their swift communication, time keeping at site meetings and great design of our kitchen extension.
It was great working with Build Team. Thank you for your help - you and your team have been excellent! The whole family are over the moon.
Build Team were expert in their approach from start to finish, and stayed until the job was done to my complete satisfaction. I would recommend them to anyone else looking to undertake a side return kitchen extension
I chose Build Team as I wanted a reliable company that I could offer a one stop shop solution to getting my side return built. Build Team successfully obtained planning permission and also took care of Party Wall matters. When all the permissions were in place we met with Mark and he was able to offer a start date which flitted with our schedule. The build has run smoothly without any issues, and I have already recommended them to others.
I have been using Build Team to undertake various construction projects at my home in Notting Hill for the past year and am very happy with the fast response time, quality of work, and range of expertise the project manager and tradesmen have shown.
I simply couldn't recommend Build Team highly enough. They were highly professional with expert knowledge. They were also extremely approachable and friendly with excellent communication skills. The project architectural designer, was an amazing help.
After having plans for our kitchen extension and side infill rejected twice with a different company, we decide to use Build Team and have not been disappointed. I was very happy with the design phase and the attention to detail offered by our design consultant. He was courteous and professional at all times. He kept me informed from the beginning with updates from the council case officer until planning permission was granted.
The team have been excellent in terms of advising us of our options. Every time we have called with a query the team have responded quickly and have been very helpful.
We instructed Design Team for our double mansard loft extension and roof terrace conversion. We found everyone we worked with extremely professional and understanding of our needs. Communication was fast and efficient throughout the process. As this was the first time we had undertaken a major building project we had many questions about the process which was explained thoroughly to us at every stage by our Architectural Designer. He was a pleasure to work with and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend their services.
Design Team prepared designs for a loft conversion. Their Architectural Designers worked very well in understanding the vision of the project, prepared lots of options to deliver it, and also provided pragmatic advice on compromises required; Design Team also did their best through the planning permission process, which has now been secured. The client service has been consistently very good. Emails have been dealt with in a timely fashion and deadlines have been met.
We used Build Team for the design, planning and construction of our side return extension. We fully recommend them. Having done numerous projects this was by far the easiest and most stress free (especially as we lived in the house whilst the works were happening). Both the project manger and main builder were exceptional, and dealt with any problems or changes efficiently.
Highly recommend for design/planning. Very professional and ensured we obtained planning even with queries from the council. We were kept in the loop throughout the process.
Build Team have the best builders. They were some of the most polite and hardworking people I've met. I cannot say enough good things about them, and nor unbelievably, can my neighbors! They are passionate about what they do and their attention to detail is faultless. As someone who works crazy hours in the city, I have little time to dedicate to a build and was concerned about this. With Build Team you have an hour slot a week and discuss everything on site with the project manager and head builder. When challenges arise, and they of course did, the team can guide you through the different options. Every day I walk into my dream flat I am completely overwhelmed at what Build Team has achieved and the ridiculous attention to detail that you get. I could not recommend Build Team enough.
I have been thoroughly impressed with the Build Team since first coming into contact. Professional, responsive and creative are all words which spring to mind in describing their navigation of my wife and I through the design and successful application stages. Now onto the build!
Have used Build Team for the design phase of our kitchen extension. They have been completely professional throughout, and have done exactly what they described, to a very high standard. Would recommend.
We're really really happy with our end result (side return and loft extension) and on the whole the process was very well managed. We were completely on time in terms of our anticipated end date and the team worked really hard to ensure this was the case after a couple of unforeseen set backs. We would absolutely recommend Build Team given our own positive experience. They were always quick/immediate to respond to any queries. Thanks Build Team - we are VERY happy in our new home!
Our experience with Build Team has been a good one, everything was completed within budget, to the specification and even finished before the estimated date of completion! The on site team were good at communicating how the project was progressing, keeping a clean and tidy work space (which was very much appreciated as we lived through it!). They really made the process very easy. We now have a wonderful new kitchen and the process was so easy we have instructed Build Team to start on our loft this spring.
We engaged with Build Team for the design phase and application for planning permission for our side return and rear extension. We found them to listen to our wishes and they included these in our drawings. During the design process we were provided with alternatives based on their experience which we thought was particularly useful to finalise our plans. They have also dealt with the council and provided helpful comments which ensured we got planning permission. All in all, we greatly appreciated their help and expertise during this design phase.
We used Build Team for the design and planning phase of our ground floor rear extension and have had a good experience. The correspondance with the design team was good and drawings for planning were shared and submitted on time.
Very efficient, prompt design service from Build Team.
We commissioned Build Team for the design phase of a side extension and found them very professional. They listen to your requirements and work with you to design the home you have envisioned. They provided a number of examples to allow you to piece together a solution that works for you. We will be using them for the build phase as we like that there are dedicated project managers and while they are not the cheapest, we feel confident that we have worked through things to prevent a long list of extras.
Efficient, friendly and informative service from Build Team, who never grumbled from the relentless amount of requests and questions from my side. Any hiccups were swiftly and professionally dealt with. Build Team were a pleasure to work with on my side return extension.
Build Team did a great job in drawing up the application for planning permission and then dealing with the Council. They listened carefully to what we were wanting and made a number of helpful suggestions on the design that greatly improved it; they then dealt with a last minute difficulty with the Council to ensure we got permission. All in all, an easy experience that gave me confidence in their expertise.
Build Team were exceptional from start to finish - they provided a professional, friendly and responsive service that exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend them to anyone considering a side-return extension in London. They were particularly good with regards to technical knowledge, quality and when it came to submitting the plans to the local council. Across the team they demonstrated commitment and professionalism throughout.
We have used Build Team for our side return extension. They were professional, timely, helpful and courteous. When we encountered a handful of issues during the build they were able to make suggestions to remedy without altering the overall design or quality. We have been delighted with the outcome and would recommend them to anyone looking to do a similar project.
We decided to go with the Build Team following the easy to use online quote and an initial visit by one of their architectural designer's in which we felt confident with their design ideas. The design phase has been a smooth process fully including our own ideas with architectural designs and couldn't have been more straightforward in terms of communication. We are looking forward to going into the build phase and seeing the plans come to life!
I cannot recommend Build Team highly enough. They are extremely professional and very respectful. They have a great team at head office so if you need help in other areas (party wall, architectural/planning etc) they can help you. And the builders I have had on my project have been truly fantastic - the finish is amazing (they are total perfectionists) and any time we've come across a stumbling block they've always advised and managed me through it. All in all I'm delighted with the builders, the build, the very high spec and talent, and I've enjoyed the process.
Just coming to the end of the design phase and about to enter the building phase, and so far have had excellent support throughout. All of my ideas were listened to by the architectural designer, with additional plans thrown in so all possibilities were considered. All emails have been responded to quickly and looking forward to entering the build phase in the next month. Also recommend going to an open day at one of the existing builds, which helped visualise the final result.
We have just used Build Team for the Design Phase and found every step of the process to be efficient and professional. The drawings came back to us quickly and adjustments were made when requested. All of the planning advice and process was also flawless. I cannot fault the design phase from build team.
We used Build Team to build our side return at the end of 2015. There were a number of issues that arose during the project (which you would expect from any building project of this nature), but to Build Team’s credit they were dealt with in an honest and efficient manner by Mark and his team. There hard work and dedication meant that we never had to worry about any issue or problem that arose. He took all of the stress out of our build and managed the project such that our build was completed on time (and budget!).
Build Team kept to the prices they quoted, produced excellent plans and were very accommodating over changes we wanted to make, kept to the timescales and most importantly produced a planning application that was successful. They were available to answer any queries and provide advice and we now move on to the next phase of actually building out the scheme. We look forward to working with Build Team on the next stage of the project. A very good company to work with.
I recently used Build Team for a loft conversion - adding 2 bedrooms and a (2nd) bathroom plus a full upgrade of the existing flat including a totally new kitchen, bathroom and extended lounge. The initial stages of design, planning permission and party wall issues were all sorted as quickly as possible. Throughout the actual build, our Project Manager was most efficient and always helpful. Throughout, he was very friendly, courteous and paid attention to our thoughts. This has resulted in an excellent job and we are so grateful to Build Team. My survey of local property prices suggests we have added more than £100,000 in value to the flat in addition to what the job cost!
