The clients of this project live in close proximity to our RIBA award-winning Max Fordham House. They followed the progress of the build and were impressed by how clean and tidy we kept the site and how we managed relationships with neighbours. We were the natural choice to build a replacement house for them on an equally challenging site on a one way mews with no outside storage space.
The existing house to be demolished is very cold in winter and hot in summer with a poor layout that does not make the most of the site. The clients approached Bow Tie Construction with planning permission for a house that had not been designed with thermal comfort and energy performance in mind. The construction cost was also outside their budget. We improved and value-engineered the design, retaining many of the key features of the home while also designing out certain defects and reducing the build price. As part of this enhancement we will install the Tribus 4Walls system as an insulated airtight structure that takes up very little space.
As is standard in all our new-build projects, we are designing the entire in house in 3D using Autodesk Inventorprior to going on site. This saves considerable time and reduces project risk as many key components and high value items can be sized from the model prior to breaking ground. The M&E design can be checked for any clashes. The house is due for completion in early 2020.
“We’re really lucky to have Bow Tie Construction working on our project. Thanks for all your fantastic work so far.”
“I did get the benefit of regular updates and involvement in the project so I could see the quality of the work.”
“We found Rafael polite and enthusiastic, and very quick to grasp what we wanted from the build – he has great communication skills.”
“Not only was the work done to exactingly high standards but Rafael made many excellent suggestions which resulted in a build which made more sense.”
“Hi all, just wanted to say, we are really impressed with your team in Bounds Green, they are doing such a brilliant job, and are a credit to your company.”
