Expansion Builds

Expansion builds can be more challenging than a new build as you can be governed by the structures already in place, or the legal implications of further development. Metalwork Solutions UK have vast experience in this area and have carried out many expansion builds over the years for well known businesses.  Working closely with clients is essential to ensure any challenges are dealt with quickly and all projects can be completed successfully, on time and on budget.

Expansion builds require a full appraisal of the current structure before additional work can commence.  Structural issues such as subsidence, uneven walls or cracks can be common problems that need addressed.  If space is limited or at a premium, Metalwork Solutions UK will work with clients to consider the best use of the construction area to gain the best value options for the client.  For example, suggesting a spiral staircase to save space, or building upwards rather than outwards by adding a steel-framed second floor to a property in the heart of London.

Listed buildings can also raise issues of their own, including working closely with organisations such as English Heritage as all work and materials must be authorised as suitable before work begins.  Metalwork Solutions UK is also experienced in working with these organisations and working on sites where legal implications must be considered.

Metalwork Solutions UK has strict quality standards in place, which gives clients peace of mind that their expansion build project will be produced to the highest specifications.  Metalwork Solutions UK have the CE Marking standard at Execution Class 4, ISO 9001:2008 quality management system as well as Contractors Health & Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS) and Constructionline quality accreditations.
