HM Construction undertook our new build in September 2019. Work included demolition of an existing 60s house, making good all footings and foundations and construction on site of a stick built timber frame structure. The house was built to near Passive House levels. This involved using technologies such as Air Source Heat Pump, MVHR, Triple glazed passive house certified glazing and Solar PV with Batteries. Extensive insulation was incorporated at every stage. HM Construction worked well with the designer to try out new technologies and building techniques to achieve air tightness of 1.0 and the As Built SAP gave the house an A - 98% rating.
Throughout the Build HM Construction provided an exceptional level of service. Using on line project management tools they provided us with weekly updates on progress and a clear timetable. When unforeseeable issues arose with the build they were quick to offer practical and affordable solutions. They were mindful of the budget and worked with the designer to find approaches that provided value for money. They were ahead of schedule for the first 6 months of the build and generally assured that supplies were on site in a timely manner. This meant that when the COVID 19 lockdown came they were able to keep working on site.
Site management was first class with good health and safety procedures which were adapted to ensure a COVID safe working environment. Their staff and contractors are all delightful and highly motivated and committed workers. They are proud of their work and want to deliver to the highest standards. This is a testament to the management and work ethic culture established by HM Construction.
HM Construction have delivered us a wonderful home, within budget and in a remarkable time scale, particularly considering the impact of COVID 19 on operating procedures. Their excellent communication and approach has meant the build has been a very enjoyable journey for us from start to finish. They are exceptional builders that I have no hesitation in recommending for any job.
