basement conversion


''We decided to construct a basement at our  property in January 2011 and approached several, established, companies for  initial feasibility. We found Mr Nagy by chance on the Internet, and were  interested because he had many years of experience in the field of basement construction. He visited the property and I and my wife were both struck with his  straight forward approach and detailed, practical knowledge of the construction  methods and project timelines. We decided to hold an RFP process and invited six companies to  tender. Mr Nagy's response was not the cheapest, although it was  detailed and met all the requirements, including the costing breakdown criteria  that we requested in the RFP. We conducted site visits to each of the six  bidders and spoke to previous clients of each. We were impressed with the  quality of fit-out for Basements 4 You which exceeded the standards of the other  shortlisted bidders, therefore we decided to go with Mr Nagy. The work commenced on July 7th 2011 and the  construction phase was completed ahead of schedule. The onsite team was  lead by a foreman, Bartek. Bartek was unfailingly polite, kept us  informed of progress of the job at every stage and showed consideration to the  neighbours. He ensured that the site was kept clean, noise was kept to a  minimum (on Saturday mornings!) and was very effective in managing the  construction team. A site supervisor, Andrew visited the site every few  days to check that work was proceeding to plan and provided the interface to  the Architect and building regulations. The guys handled some very tricky  manoeuvring of extremely heavy steels (7m spans) with aplomb. I am very happy with the outcome; a 130 sq m basement with  finished head height of 3m at a very competitive price.''

Basements 4 you has constructed a retro-fit basement for us including a full fit-out. During this project all the staff have shown a very professional attitude to the whole basement construction project. The works started and finished on time and budget. In our experience, all of the members of the team were approachable, friendly, trustworthy, hard working and they all knew their trade. A very well-organised team. They come highly recommended. Thank you to everyone involved.

We employed Basements4You to do our basement construction project.  We choose them because they were the best value for money, but it was clear that they also had extensive experience of doing basement works, and that we would be in safe hands.  We started at the end of September 2011 and were finished at the beginning of March 2012.  Before our basement construction project, we had done two other reasonably significant building projects and both suffered from a number of days of non-attendance of builders.  This is extremely frustrating when you are living in a building site and just keen for the building work to be finished.  This was not the case with Basements4You.  There were always at least 2 people on the job, and in many cases a lot more, 6 days a week.  The builders were very personable and friendly, and the disruption was less than expected.  The project went very smoothly and the quality of the finished work was to a very high standard.  The snagging list was minimal.  We are extremely happy with the final result and all our friends have been very impressed with our basement.

Mr. Simon Robson

There is no denying that a cellar conversion project is a major undertaking and has the potential to become a lengthy and very expensive process.

Embarking on a major project such as this can be daunting and like many, we received quotes from a number of different companies dealing with basement construction and cellar conversion. We were particularly impressed with the straight forward approach Jan and Basements 4 you adopted. The process was explained clearly and many concerns were ironed out in the very early stages. From start to finish the construction and fit out teams were punctual, courteous and hard working. Our fears of hidden extras were unfounded and the project completed within 4 weeks of the estimated finish date. We would certainly use Basements 4 you again.
