The same reliable team

The same team that handled the planning process for you will be on hand throughout the build phase to act as a liaison between you and the builders. They know your project inside and out, having been there with you from the very start and contributing to the design and planning phases, making them the perfect go-between for you and the various tradespeople involved in the build.

End-to-end project management

We know that you’re busy, which is why we take the running of the build phase off your hands. You can rely on us to provide the builders with everything they need to complete your project to the letter, whether it’s a new kitchen, more bedrooms, or house extensions to deliver more space. We field any questions from the construction team while also keeping you up-to-date with the latest progress. You can also track the current position of the build through our custom portal.

All trades included

While we may talk about builders and the build phase of your project, that is a catch-all term. Whatever the project requires—be it groundwork, brickwork, plumbing, heating, carpentry, roofing, flooring, painting and decorating, electrics, or anything else—we know the right people for the job. We only instruct tradespeople that meet our high standards of workmanship and who share our commitment to customer service. Your Plans 2 Extend team will run the entire site, including health and safety, CDM regulations, and building control.

Everything priced up front

We’ve already costed your proposed extension, since the building work will be based on our own technical drawings. This ensures accurate quotes from the very start, with no nasty surprises later down the road. You get to know up front exactly where your money is going.

A change of plan

Even while the project is being built, your original design team is still here to help you in any way we can. If you have a last-minute addition or revision you want to incorporate into the project, let us know. We can make revisions on the fly, re-pricing the work and re-briefing all the trades involved in the build.

Accreditations

We hand-pick all the tradespeople that we work with and personally inspect their various certifications and accreditations. All workers on our build team will be accredited by their appropriate industry bodies, including CABE, CIAT, Gas Safe, Part P, and whichever other organisations are relevant. We also ensure that all trades carry suitable public liability insurance for your added peace of mind.

How it Works

Once your Planning journey with us has ended, simply let us know that you want us to handle the build phase. We get a Bill of Quantities from our Quantity Surveyor, and price everything with our trade partners before returning to you to present the Build Phase quotation . We will then set up your site, brief all trades on what we need them to do, and book them in for the work. Once everything is confirmed, we can break ground on the project, you can then sit back and watch your dreams become a reality with Plans 2 Extend.

No more self-management

While it can be tempting to manage the project yourself, things inevitably go wrong. After all, you hire builders, joiners, and other tradespeople because they are experts at their job. This doesn’t always mean that they are experts at communication, particularly with people outside of the trade. It’s the same reason people hire Plans 2 Extend – we are experts at liasing between our clients and our trade partners, making sure you get the information you need, when you need it. We also make sure that all key parts of the process (including building control inspections, the appropriate documentation, on-site logistics, and more) go off without a hitch.

A clear plan

By hiring us to handle your build, you get an easy-to-follow timetable of deadlines, payment dates, and completion dates. All of this information is replicated on our custom portal, where you can check progress at any time. This portal is the central hub for our planning team, our builders, and you, so everybody gets the same information.

Let Us Handle The Heavy Work

With our build phase solutions, you can sit back and watch your new space take shape without any fuss or worry. Our team will deal with every aspect of your build for you – from vetting and hiring tradespeople you can trust, to ensuring they keep to the timeframe and budget, to acting as a liaison point between you and the workers, so information, queries, and updates are passed accurately and with no misunderstandings. This leaves you free to relax and enjoy the more important things in life while you leave the nut and bolts of your extension build to the professionals.
