Project Details:
HBS were selected by L B Havering’s Homes in Havering partnership to construct a complicated extension project at Royal Jubilee Court in Romford.

The programme for completion was only 12 weeks, to meet the clients end of year, and the whole process took place amid particularly challenging weather conditions. The project consisted of constructing an extension to the existing sheltered housing project encompassing a lift from the ground to first floor. The extension also included access areas and lobby in addition to a patio and landscaping to blend in with the surrounding grounds. Particular attention was paid to outlining possible problems prior to start on site in view of the very tight programme and nature of the dwellings. HBS called upon their tried and trusted network of partners with particular attention to the structural engineers and lift manufacturers. The attention to detail in programming and design was paramount in meeting the deadlines and the HBS project team were able to call upon well established contacts to meet the challenge. Despite an extensive survey and pre-planning the groundworks team made a number of ’discoveries’ consisting of a series of uncharted below ground services. These were all identified and diverted around the new foundations with a minimum of fuss or delay. In spite of these discoveries and the worst of the British winter, HBS completed the Design & Build project within the 12 weeks and came in under budget. A challenging project of this nature could well have ended very differently however the HBS team showed the benefit in choosing a contractor who had done it all before.
