Brackenbury 2018 Build Cost: <£600k contractor: BuildVision ltd, Darius A full basement excavation, ground floor extension and re-design, first floor extension and loft interventions brought this house up to date for many more years to come as a family home and workspace. “Oliver supported us right from the early planning stage through to project completion. He made our vague plans precisely possible by working closely with us to understand what we wanted and applying his excellent technical skills to the task. He worked extremely well with our builders, and with us, to deliver a complicated basement and full house refurbishment project on time and on budget. He has helped us transform our house, and we would highly recommend Oliver as an architect.”
