An Eco refurbishment from start to finish

We have recently completed an Eco-refurbishment on a substantial domestic property in Tooting London. The request was for a Hi-Tech & Hi-Spec  Eco refurbishment using unsusual and innovative insulatiing techniques for an architectural practice. Our contract was for a plastered finish  for our client to then fit out. This was a challenging and interesting project brought to a successful conclusion.

Eco Refurbishment

“Cannon Construction were employed by our client as the main contractor on an extensive whole house refurbishment with an energy saving brief using specialist materials and construction processes.

They were required to consider the implications of the latest best practice guidelines on strategies such as air – tightness, thermal bridge reduction, moisture in heritage buildings, natural buildings materials and M&E coordination.

The need to collaborate with additional specialist contractors required by the client meant that they had a responsibility to program their demolition and remedial work, as well as the new construction, around other companies installing insulations and air – tightness products.

This required both project and site manager to have a good understanding of the eco-initiatives being undertaken by the client to ensure that other products and processes were well organised.

This was successfully completed and the work was well managed and executed, with quality inspections having no requirement for remedial work to be instructed during the contract.”

“I engaged Cannon Construction Croydon Ltd. to undertake a significant amount of work on my house which amounted to a six figure sum. They saved me money in not having to pay a professional to administer the works as they had offered a project management service. The project ran very smoothly from beginning to end, I found their staff, friendly, professional and helpful. The management are well organised and attentive and their site staff amenable, responsive and respectful for my home. I was extremely satisfied with the outcome and particularly the quality of their workmanship. There was always someone on site from beginning to end and the work was completed within a reasonable timetable. I would have no hesitation in recommending the company to other prospective clients”
