We will design and build your project ensuring that the correct planning consents are obtained and there is minimal disruption to you and your neighbours.

Our Specialist Building Services Include:

Internal Structural Improvements and Alterations

Big wide span open spaces are becoming more fashionable these days. Structural alterations and structural steel work is required if load bearing walls are to be removed to create open and light space.

Often it is necessary to preload the beams and columns to avoid movement cracks at a later date. We use hydraulic flat jacks to transfer load from the temporary works onto the permanent structure.

All this work is undertaken with the greatest care to ensure that no damage is caused to floors above and below.

Historic Building Restoration and Conservation Work using Lime Render

Abbeymead Building Contractors have a wealth of knowledge in the field of conservation and the renovation of listed buildings.

Environmentally friendly lime products allow buildings to breathe better and are rapidly becoming the first choice for many architects and discerning clients, offering lower embodied CO2 emissions than the traditional cement based alternatives.

Working with traditional lime render and lime plaster requires a very special skill and our craftsmen have spent many years perfecting the task.

We can repair lathe and plaster ceilings, reproduce mouldings and replicate the delicate, original features of your property giving you a quality finish to reflect your investment.

Data and Audio Visual Cabling

Modern “Residential Technology” is continually becoming more complex and many require a data cabling system installed to specific standards and professionalism.
These systems will run your Internet, phone, Television and audio systems as well as your controlled lighting systems all from one location in your property.

Basement Waterproofing, Damp Proof Membrane and Tanking Systems

All basement habitable rooms are required to be designed to BS 8102 Grade 3. There are a number of different construction methods to achieve this which included Cavity drainage systems and waterproof renders.

Abbeymead Building Ltd are able to undertake and install both types of specialist building systems and provide guarantees for the works as part of a complete basement package.

Solid Surface floor and wall finishes

Contemporary interior design calls for an endless range of solid surface finishes to both walls and floors.

We can fit Natural Stone Glass Large format porcelain tiles to your property and even clad joinery items in the same material for that seamless look.

We have installed Kerlite Glass and marble to Vanity units and dressing room joinery.

These hard surfaces are easy to maintain and develop a superior feel to any room.

Underpinning and Additional Foundations

To support the walls of your property whilst a basement is formed the existing walls may require underpinning.

Underpins are installed sequentially around the property to lower the depth of the foundation bearing level.

These works quite often required Party wall notices to be served to neighbouring properties.

Abbeymead Building Ltd can install the underpins and temporary works required and assist in serving party wall notices. This will enable the project to progress more quickly.

We will advise you on the most cost effective ventilation methods available and ensure your ventilation design is compliant.
