Before any work is carried out nu: will do a site visit and make an honest appraisal of the viability of the job and we can also give you a rough indication of the costs involved.

Is my house suitable for basement or extension?

Any work to a boundary wall requires you to comply with the requirements of the Party Wall Act 1996. The Act gives you rights to and duties over the works to a shared wall. Nu’s conscientious approach to any job means that we advise you not only of your legal obligations with respect to your neighbours, but also the best way to keep them onside during the building process.

Do I need a formal agreement with the neighbours?

This depends on the individual job, but nu: will be able to tell you whether they are required and will provide an experienced engineer when necessary

Do I need the services of a Structural Engineer?

This depends on a number of factors, from whether the property is in a conservation area or if the works come under permitted development. Most will almost certainly need to be inspected by Building Control. nu: will advise you on what is required and do our best to ensure that it is handled as smoothly as possible.

What Local Authority consents do I need?

Subject to specification, A nu:extension will take approximately 8-12 weeks for a typical standard size project. A nu: conversion will take 8-12 weeks and a nu:basement conversion will take 16-24 weeks.

Testimonials:

“Richard and Nick from NU builds (who seem to be taking over Fulham slowly with the amount of projects they have) are in charge of the project and have become close friends. When people see the extent of the project, they almost look in shock, however the laughter and banter we have virtually every day is making the project painless and hugely enjoyable” -Supermodel and good friend David Gandy

“I have worked with nu: on a project in Chelsea. The project encompassed a loft conversion, kitchen side extension and a total refurbishment to a high standard. The works took six months from start to finish, impressed”

“We have worked with nu:on numerous projects and they have always delivered on time and within budget. The best West London builders by a long shot”
