Kitchen extension project: Living on site
Wellbeing management during your kitchen extension project
When we are planning the logistics of any kitchen extension project, our priority and considerations are for those residing at their property during building works if this is going to be the case. We occasionally work on projects where the property is unoccupied, however most of the time individuals and families are onsite during the build life cycle. It is paramount to us at Planning & Build that residents on site during a build are as comfortable as possible and indeed this is top of the list of daily checks for our Project Managers. It is part of our core competency to deliver kitchen extension projects as smoothly as possible and to this respect the requirements and comfort of those at home as we build is constantly reviewed.
A temporary kitchen and amenities during your kitchen extensions project
Professional building contractors will ensure that there are always facilities for cooking, food heating, refrigeration, clothes washing and drying. Our first option is to reinstate existing kitchen appliances (like cookers and fridges) in a temporary kitchen space where possible. We also provide electrical cookers where need be. Your designated Project Manager will also be available after office hours and they have no concerns answering any queries, addressing any issues, or meeting any requirements during evening and weekends. Indeed he or she will take an active interest as to the level of comfort of residents to ensure that everything is continually being done to keep disruptions to a minimum whilst you undergo your kitchen extension project.
Isolating the building works and logistical management
In the case of a kitchen extension project where the works are usually on the ground floor, the rest of the property will be protected on that floor and dust sheets put up to keep the dust from going to above floors. Handling the logistics of the build process so as to minimise the disruptions for residents is a standard part of our works.
A carefully managed kitchen extensions project will ensure that the 10 – 12 weeks it takes to complete your kitchen extension passes as smoothly as possible. In cases where we are installing underfloor heating on most of the ground floor we are still able to find amenity solutions for every property.
If there are any particular and specific requirements that you would like to know about prior to the commencement of your kitchen extensions project, please let us know. Contact our office on 0203 397 7077.
