OWNERS & PRE-PURCHASE
We are available to advise on your own property or a proposed purchase and provide full site investigation, budget costings of expected restoration and refurbishment works with specifications and to assist with ideas for alterations and extending.
Here at JH Building Restoration & Refurbishment we can produce drawings and take any project through planning, building regulations and Listed Building consents to approval.
We have a sympathetic and extensive understanding of Listed Building requirements and this has resulted in a good working relationship with heritage building conservation officers throughout the counties of Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire and Hertfordshire.
We recommend having an initial meeting together with a Listed Building officer. This is helpful as all parties are then aware of one another's requirements and it is this information exchange and ongoing contact that enables us to produce the schedules for a successful project.
Fees are based on each individual project and clients requirements and are negotiated prior to commencement.
We have a varied client base and would be pleased to provide references that demonstrate the quality of our work and our commitment to clients and their projects.
