Alterations, conversions and refurbishment
For commercial, private or public concerns Bramber have rightly a strong reputation as a company that excels in altering, converting and refurbishing existing properties. More often than not in an occupied environment many companies decline this type of works as being less straight forward. At Bramber we are not deterred from carrying out adaptations or the fact that clients are adjacent to the areas of work, we just plan very well and work safely.
Bramber will create the best design team to build your home, to your bespoke requirements – whether traditional or contemporary. Each home is designed and constructed with attention to detail and craftsmanship. Contact us to discuss your specific requirements.
Competitive tendering remains an aspect of our services from planned maintenance to large scale projects across all sectors and services. Our estimating team have a wealth of specialists within our supply chain to draw upon in the construction of our competitive tenders for your proposed projects. Please do not hesitate to contact us.
Working with English Heritage on many occasions to listed properties, and frequently adopting traditional methods of conservation & restoration, Bramber have a wide range of skills in this specialist sector from roof replacements to chalk block and flint walls.
Demolition on either large scale industrial to small domestic projects is as important as building new. Treated with the same considered care, planning and preparation as we would the construction of something new, demolition features in nearly all our projects to make way for the construction phase.
Design and build
Either for our own developments or for our clients, design and build packages using local designers have always proved mutually successful. With focus more recently on a desire by registered social landlords to participate in the development sector our expertise has offered each client great opportunity. Bramber continue to recognise the cost / time equation so essential for this type of works is paramount but always aim to provide the best components they can, and not just fulfil criteria from an employer’s requirements.
Whatever your project is, Bramber offers a complete design and build service, with price certainty across all sectors and building types.
Energy efficiency works
Bramber have always built sustainably, offering the best materials for the price the client can afford to significantly improve insulation and drive down energy bills. Recent works within the green initiative had us fitting solar panel systems, and replacing heating systems supported by subsidised grants. We have also participated in simple initiatives to ensure when working on existing properties, particularly homes, that where opportunity arose we made a difference. This could include insulating the space under the bath, or using thermal imaging equipment to recognise failures and simply adjusting doors and windows to fit – simple fixes making significant savings!
Extensions are often considered to be only an extension of the family home – not at Bramber. We have extended factories, schools, hospitals, libraries, sports facilities, museums, shops, pubs, hotels, surgeries, to name just a few. Of course, we have also extended quite a few houses as well!
Not sure on which direction to take or if Bramber can be involved, then we would welcome opportunity to discuss your proposals to see if we can participate in any way. This could be that we point you in the direction of a design team that our experience tells us would suit your requirements or provide sound advice to a projects direction. We enjoy what we do and would happily discuss your proposals for free, many who have taken this direction have gone on to contract with Bramber.
Complete rebuilds of major industrial units following a devastating fire, to domestic floods following burst pipes, and pulling cars out of shop fronts, Bramber have literally seen and rebuilt them all. With insurance companies often approaching us direct or clients sometimes with a professional team contacting us we understand the need to work closely with the insured to overcome what is frequently the catastrophe that has led to the work.
Frequently part of a larger construction package but also independent of any other works Bramber are equipped to carry out all aspects of landscaping. From the hard landscaping of patios, fencing, driveways and decking to the soft landscaping of lawns and planted trees & plants we can carry out all aspects.
Maintenance: planned, preventative and reactive
Carrying out emergency or reactive maintenance for partnering clients Bramber call upon its in-house management and technical staff to complete these works offering a wealth of practical experience to find the on-site solution and keep costs for the client to the minimum. Pre-agreed rates for each trade and a practical method of reporting faults has allowed our teams to deliver this service for our clients for many years, featuring in some cases 24-hour cover when economically viable for our clients.
Featuring heavily in our portfolio of works, either for our clients or as part of a Bramber venture, we have built many beautiful new build homes. From townhouses, flats, and small family homes, to vast detached luxury properties they have all figured over the years. Frequently backed by NHBC or similar and to the highest standards Bramber are known locally for the quality of their “Bramber Homes”.
A large proportion our work is frequently partnering with clients both existing and new to deliver their vision in a truly collaborative arena. Open-book policies and trust are key to the spirit of partnering with our clients, and by doing so removes the need to price for the unknown construction costs placed on building proposals at concept stage. This ensures clients only pay for what they wanted and get, offering Bramber and its supply chain a pre-agreed margin of overhead & profit for the project delivery.
