From loft conversion to whole house re-model
Bow Tie Construction
The client was initially looking to do a loft conversion and have planning permission and plans drawn by an architect. After we were approved to do the works we discovered that the initial architectural drawings were measured incorrectly and the proposed layouts were not possible as the loft was much smaller than originally thought. At this point the client disengaged the architect and engaged us on a design & build contract. We designed and drew out a new layout for the entire property using revit 3D modelling and instead of adding space in the loft we created a spacious living / dining / kitchen extension with very large glazing and underfloor heating. We re-modelled the entire property including moving walls, fitting new timber floors, painting, wallpapering and working closely with an Italian kitchen designer and supplier. We also did all external works including new patio, terrace, steps and front driveway.
Hi all, just wanted to say, we are really impressed with your team in Bounds Green, they are doing such a brilliant job, and are a credit to your company. We’re really lucky to have them working on our project. Thanks for all your fantastic work so far too.

"Rafael Delimata project managed an extension and new kitchen to our Victorian house in 2010. (...) We found him polite and enthusiastic, and very quick to grasp what we wanted from the build - he has great communication skills. He was involved from the beginning and contributed useful ideas and suggestions throughout the project. He is particularly knowledgeable about green issues and we now have a kitchen/breakfast room which is easy and cheap to heat in the winter and cool in the summer. Our previous experiences with builders have not been good - we are demanding clients with backgrounds in interior design, so we are probably not the easiest of customers, but we would have no hesitation in working with Rafael Delimata again and would recommend him to others."

“The house definitely meets expectations and exceeds them in some areas, the heat comfort is very big, the noise is much less than it was, overall very happy with it.”
