This first stage was a mix of survey meetings and design to get the project’s job-pack created.
This project was to remodel the downstairs kitchen, utility and dining room into one generous living space, decorate the hall, stairs, landing and build a new habitable porch.
The internal works required structural walls to be taken out and designed steel beams calculated by our structural engineer.
The council was involved for both parts of the project: the porch required a certificate of lawful development plus building regs, and the kitchen required building regs for the structural beams.
RCM used our BIMx software on survey meetings to discuss the project, while gathering all the information required. This provided our client with a model to consider prior to further meetings.
Our architect took the BIMx model which we created with the client and turned it into the relevant applications and drawings for the council.
While this work was going to be carried out the clients also wished to have their boiler changed by our plumbing and heating engineers. They were able to take advantage of the warranties that we can provide (please see our manufacturer’s area for more details).
The kitchen was designed to be a mixture of items from different merchants: Howdens were to be used for the units; Brian Jackman’s with their Minerva solid work top and Stellisons for the appliances.
The floor was to be installed by Andy Watson using Karndean, and for the decorating we used Dulux trade paint.
A glass splash back was chosen and colour matched with the walls to look seamless.
The clients had decided to take on finishing the landscaping to the front themselves and would look at doing this after the project by RCM was finished.
With all the above information gathered, we had everything we needed to be able to proceed with the job.
