This is the key stage where your project starts to take shape. Whether it’s a new build and your roof trusses and wall frames are being assembled or you’re adding an extension or renovating an existing home, the external parts of the project come to life.

This also includes plenty of external features such as your roof, fascia, gutters, windows, brickwork, external cladding and external doors added.

Essentially, you’ll have a home or extension that can be locked up which is then followed by painting, flooring, door fixtures, shower screens, mirrors and other fit-offs for all the internals of the project.


Congratulations, your project is completed and ready to be handed over. The Building Surveyor will undertake the final inspection to ensure quality assurance and issue a Certificate of Occupancy ready for handover.

But the relationship doesn’t end at handover. We understand that houses, renovations and extensions need to be tested by people and the elements so we’ll be available to address any issues or defects for the following 3 months after project handover in addition to a 10 year structural warranty.
