Extension and conversions to existing dwellings are often a very testing exercise for the residents of an existing building

Costs can increase rapidly if the front end planning is not carried out. Usually the most expensive portion of the project is ground work and the foundation. Often clients can experience a vast increase in costs due to none confirmed depths which can alter quantities of material and labour also professional fees.

Handle carry out thorough surveys and spend a lot of time preparing all quotations. We liaise closely with the design team and client/occupant to ensure expectations are clear and met from inception through to submission of tender. We understand that budget and time is as important as high quality finishes. Our experienced management team provide a personal service to underpin these matters.

For those that truly understand that best value is not always the cheapest price and quality of service backed by stringent procedure is paramount to any build, Handle Construction want to quote for your project.

All Estimates are free and include:

  • Fully itemized breakdowns
  • Comprehensive presentation pack
  • Draft Programming
  • C.V.s of site senior team
  • Detailed prelim costs
Case Study


We were instructed to carry out a conversion of an existing stable block into a residential bungalow

Contract Period 13 weeks
Completion Date August 2016

Having gone through a very tight tender process the client selected Handle Construction on the basis of our pre planning and technical understanding of their needs. The brief was to be highly energy efficient without impacting on the main residence (a lovely large Victorian town house).

The project was closely monitored by the clients due to a restrictive budget and the demand for high quality finishes. The project was completed one week ahead of programme and came within the agreed budget. This was due to our comprehensive management controls and the excellence of our site team together with the vision of our design team.
