Case study

Clumber Road

Job date - 12/2018

The details

This was a major project; the client’s brief was to transform their home and for us to make it become one of the best bungalows in Ranmoor. Using nothing but the best materials and quality craftsmanship, we did just that!

What was involved

Using a digger craned in the back we added:

  • New walls
  • Extensions
  • Patios
  • Loft conversion
  • New roof
  • Guttering
  • New windows & doors
  • Rebuilt the entire outer skin of brickwork
  • Re-rendered
  • 3 new bathrooms
  • Underfloor heating throughout
  • New front wall gate and drive
  • New heating system re-wiring
  • New kitchen
  • The list goes on. It was a brilliant job, but don’t just take our word for it…

More information / Review from the property owner

Hi Mark

As you are aware we are so pleased with all your work at Clumber Road that we are happy for you to record in terms of commentary anything that you consider appropriate.
My comments would include the following –
The initial valued advice on how to convert our old 1960’s Bungalow into a large imposing modern property.
Starting with the design and construction of the front boundary natural stone wall
The design skill that Rabjohn Construction put into the construction of our property and challenging some of the flawed design work of our architect both inside and outside.
Your words “ that’s not going to work “ in terms of design and practicality were never more true.
Your encouragement and support and confidence in getting the job done right.
Your vision in terms of knowing what the eventual building was going to look like and look right.
The valuable practical changes that were necessary to carry out to ensure the house and room and corridor sizes and proportions were right.
You’re expertise and flair in ensuring that the final building looked really top drawer .
The quality of all the construction personnel  ie stonework, brick laying, the design of the roof and extension , electrical, joinery and plastering .
They technical know how and planning of all the lighting inside and out and the security systems that were installed
The outstanding quality of your heating, plumbing and underfloor heating installation
The friendliness of all the Rabjohn Construction staff.
At the end of the day we never had a cross word on any matter concerning this major project
Everything costs money but  we were satisfied with the amount of the total cost that this project cost. There was never any argument or disagreement on any of the costs submitted by Rabjohn Construction throughout the whole of the project.
Finally, the way in which Rabjohn Construction were always planning ahead so that they knew exactly what materials and subcontractors they would need and when in order to avoid and delays or inefficiencies of labour costs.
All the Rabjohn staff always worked hard solid from beginning to the end of the day come rain or sunshine
Rabjohn Construction are a good small sized construction company which enables them to be flexible and competitive .
I would recommend Rabjohn Construction strongly to always carry out a top quality competitive building project with the very skilled building team that they have.
