Case Studies

Queens Avenue, Maldon

Stage 1 

The first stage involves meeting the client to discuss the project in-depth. The clients wanted to create a wrap around extension to increase their downstairs living space, with a dining table and utility room.

We created the design on BIMx with the client and architect to show them ideas and different layouts. Once the layout and design were agreed RCM then worked with Maldon District Council and building control to gain planning consent.

Stage 2

We started by blocking off the existing part of the house, so the clients were able to use their kitchen with minimal disruption.

We then prepared the grounds and foundations for the new extension, this included altering the existing drainage to incorporate the new utility waste. Once the groundworks and foundations were ready, we were able to start building the extension around the rear of the house, we used replica London bricks for the extension.

When the new walls were finished, we were able to fit the new engineered lintel above the bifold doors and prepare for the roof.

The extension was then fitted with a new EDPM flat roof, with 2 roof lantern and aluminum roof capping, and bifold doors opening up on to the garden.

Once water tight we were able to screed the floors to create one level floor throughout, to match the existing level in the kitchen, this was in preparation for the plumbed underfloor heating.

Stage 3

This stage was to 2nd fix the job.

All walls were plastered, 2nd fix electrics completed. Floor tiled, utility room units; worktop and appliances all fitted.

Wall papering and painting were the last jobs to be completed.

Stage 4

At the finishing stage, all paperwork was completed and any remedial works carried out. The whole site was then cleared and a cleaning company employed to finish off to a high, professional standard.

Stage 5

On completion of the job all necessary warranties came into play and the RCM team were on hand for any queries or issues.
