Ground Floor Extension

Open plan living space

Our client based in Ashwell near Baldock, Hertfordshire wanted to create more of an open plan living space within their home.

Gilbert & Gregson Construction Ltd were contracted to build a ground floor side extension. This would be an extension for a kitchen diner that opened out onto a solid core composite decking area. This gave the client more inside and outside space for the family to enjoy.

The client came to us with an image in their head of what they would like to achieve. We took our client through the initial planning drawings stage, filed their planning application and after planning was agreed created construction drawings. All through our in house architectural designer. 

We were then contracted to undertake the build this included:

  • All groundwork preparation including services for water, waste and electrics.
  • Foundations, blockwork and brickwork.
  • Extensive steelwork, installing large structural steel beams to create a six-meter high vaulted ceiling.
  • Hand-cut roof. Felt, battened and tiled.
  • Complete interior fit-out, including kitchen with island and all appliances; also designated area with work stations for the children’s homework.
  • Installation of all windows, doors and sliding doors.
  • Complete new central heating system.
  • Electrics with bespoke lighting design.
  • Decoration throughout the extension including floor tiling and wall tiling.
  • Outside solid core composite decking.

Our advice is free and we'd be happy to discuss your building project. Please don't hesitate to get in touch.
