Case Study

When a mixed special needs school in Kempston that caters for children with physical disabilities needed a major renovation, we were delighted to get involved. This project was very important to them because the extra space created was going to be used to house a new class in the new academic year.  With a long waiting list, the school was already at its maximum capacity. This was then further compounded by Covid regulations requiring extra space per pupil, so it was vital that the work was completed within a tight timeframe.

The work consisted of merging a small soft play area and a large storage room in to one large classroom. We took out an interior wall, installed vinyl flooring throughout and extended an existing bathroom. The needs of the children required that every classroom was fitted with a full disabled toilet area and a small, plumbed in kitchenette.

A garage conversion is straightforward and great way to add space and value to your home without adding to your home’s footprint.

Whether you are looking for a traditional or a contemporary feel, count on our experts to complete the fitting to your existing plans

CASE STUDY

Whilst the inside of classroom was being renovated, on the outside of the now joint classroom we built a new ramp onto the playground. This included cutting out and installing a new set of fire doors and building a double brick wall around the ramp area. We also installed safety railings and finished the ramp off with a resin bound gravel finish for grip and strength.

It was very important to the school that any work that created noise, dust or potential risks were completed in the two-week Easter holiday. With this in mind we briefed our team on the need for speed and efficiency and we successfully completed the vast majority of the project within those two weeks. Only light decorating and finishing needed to be carried out whilst the children were back at school.

The school where and continue to be very happy with the progress, so much so that they have decided to take us on as their ‘go-to’ builders for the future -which we are delighted about.

Testimonials

“Very friendly guys. Arrived on time everyday. Even worked on a Saturday and Sunday to get the work completed on time. They did check that this would be okay first. Due to lockdown someone was usually at home for the duration of the work. Even being at home didn’t seem stressful as the guys just got on and did what needed to be done without effecting us. Surpraisingly every day they seemed to leave the area cleaner then they found it. I would highly recommend.”

Tanya Moffett

“Use on a regular basis- very trustworthy and reliable.”

M Lankshear-Vola

“I regularly use Birch & Son Ltd. They have done everything from replacing an oven, replacing flooring, installing a kitchen to building a new 2 storey extension. I use them for all jobs that need doing at my house & my place of work too. They are very reliable, trustworthy & pleasant. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.”

Michelle Lankshear

“Had an outside light fitted, really pleased with the work it looks neat and tidy, and was a good price”

Sophie Addis

“Stephen and his team have done wonders at my new property. They came and installed some outdoor power sockets to the front of my house, along with supplying my external garage with mains power as well as fitting a set of lights and a number of power sockets to allow me to utilise the space as a workshop. Although I’m an Aerospace Engineer by trade, I had no idea what work was required, to satisfy my needs so I was rather nervous. This quickly turned into great confidence when Stephen’s team arrived to survey the required work, at which time they put my mind to rest. Stephen’s team took the time to run through my initial thoughts, and clearly outline what was possible and likewise what was not possible, as well as running through the finite details of exactly what work was required. This was greatly appreciated, as I’ve had bad past experiences with builder who have been rather rude when I quizzed them around the specific steps of the required work. Top team, thank you.”

Nat Oxenbury

“I cannot recommend Stephen Birch Ltd highly enough. They did some work for my wife and I in the autumn of 2020, renovating a bedroom, landing, stairwell, and part of the kitchen. From the outset, I was impressed with Steve and George. They went to great lengths to be considerate and avoid any damage to the property during the period of the work. They were polite, friendly, and did the work on schedule and to a high quality. Where additional tasks arose, they provided a fair quote in advance, and they always looked to find good solutions. We have immediately re-contracted them to do some further work renovating our front yard.”

Rod Latham

“Last year Solar Easy installed LED lights into my garden decking. They were punctual, polite and very professional, ensuring to complete the job to a very high standard. Installing the lights required more work than initially expected but they never complained and adjusted the price fairly.”

Isabelle Osborn

“Steve was an absolute pleasure to work with in building our extension. He and his team were utterly professional from the moment they quoted for the work through to the very last touches. They handled all aspects of the work quickly and with the minimum of disruption to me and the family, and everything was finished to a high standard. Even when lockdown caused a long delay in the works, Steve made sure to keep in touch and returned to finish the job as soon as he could. Utterly brilliant and have already recommended to friends and neighbours.”

Tom Holman

“Stephen and his team were always polite, work was always carried out to a high standard and the site was always left clean and tidy. They made every effort to complete work in a timely manner. I have no qualms about recomending Stephen Birch as a tradesman and the quality of his work speaks for itself.”
