We at The Builders SW know that building your own house can be a daunting prospect. There are so many different professionals and tradesmen involved that you may not know which way to turn at any given time. The types of tradesmen that are likely to be involved in any house building project include the architects and/or designers who have been involved in designing the building itself and any other designers, such as interior designers and landscape designers. You will also have had the involvement of a surveyor and a quantity surveyor. Planning consultants, the local planning office and building control officer and structural engineers may also have been involved. You may even heed to employ a tree surgeon to clear the site. And all this is likely to have taken place before the actual work on the house has even started!
When it is time to start the construction you will need to send in the ground workers. They will probably be part of the team of the main building contractor. As well as the ground workers, there will be bricklayers, stonemasons, roofing contractors, carpenters, plasterers and renderers, electrical contractors, plumbers, central heating engineers, painters and decorators, concreting contractors, kitchen fitters, tilers, painters and decorators and tiling specialists. You may even need to engage a landscape gardener to make sure that the new house’s surroundings don’t detract from its appeal. Involved on the outside will be the various suppliers of materials and good needed to equip the tradesmen and the house itself.
The planning and building control inspectors will maintain their involvement through to satisfactory completion.
Keeping all the balls in the air will be the project manager. He will coordinate the various stages of the job, from beginning to end, liaising with all the different tradesmen involved in the project. He is a vital cog to successfully completing the construction of your new house.
