Oxon Builders Ltd. are highly experienced refurbishment contractors in Oxfordshire from large-scale transformations to small specialist projects and listed buildings.
Everyone, both homeowners and commercial investors want to get the maximum investment potential from their property and refurbishment may seem like the most straightforward option. However, there are some complexities involved in refurbishment that can prove costly both in time and budget if not carefully considered.
Clients may not have considered the benefits of a new build such as VAT relief, more flexible space planning and greater energy efficiency. A refurbishment solution may prove to be the only, or best alternative, but it is important to consider all the aspects and complexities.
Commercial Refurbishments in Oxford
Oxon Builders Ltd. are aware of the common pitfalls associated with refurbishments in Oxford due to the history of the buildings and their locations. Clients may find that accurate building records may not exist, so unexpected issues such as asbestos removal may occur or general structural stability and often drainage (underground services) are not always apparent until works are underway.
We have the experience and capacity to deal with these issues and can advise clients throughout the project. We never pull teams off site once a job is started and with our plumbing and electric teams on hand to support us we are able to run the entire project with a dedicated project manager.
Occupied refurbishments in the Oxford area
To avoid disruption to business and day to day life, many refurbishments are undertaken whilst the buildings still remain in use which carries certain potential risks to individuals and equipment. Our dedicated project manager will get a clear understanding of how the building is used and tackle any health & safety issues for occupants and contractors ensuring risk and disruption are kept to a minim. Throughout the entire process we understand that good communication between all parties is vital.
Refurbishing Listed Buildings in Oxford
Often our clients will be carrying out alterations to a listed building. Whether inside or out, this is a little more complicated than non-listed buildings however English Heritage states: “Listed buildings can be altered, extended and sometimes even demolished within Government planning guidance.” We can recommend architects to help you with the planning and ensure your refurbishment is completed on time and on budget and with the all due diligence and respect your building requires from the initial stages through to the electrics, plumbing, painting and decorating.
Whether you are embarking on a domestic or commercial refurbishment, we never pull our teams off a job once it’s started so you can be sure of a continuous and professional build.
