Pavels and his team did a great job on completing an internal re-configuration for us and for a reasonable price.

The job involved knocking through a load bearing wall and replacing with a steel frame, re-plastering several walls and ceilings, screeding a concrete slab, significant electrical changes and new plumbing for a future kitchen. We also had them change an external window, and repair a parapet wall on our roof. The work to the bearing wall was a bit tricky as our structural engineer designed a 4 sided frame and had another beam "Tee-ing" onto it. This required some consideration as to the method and sequence of propping and demolition. To Pavels' credit the process went smoothly and quickly. and the space now looks great.

Of course with any building works, and especially on old Victorian property like ours, some inevitable unforeseen problems arose (nothing major). Pavels was very proactive towards finding a solution and involved us in any decisions to tackle the various issues.

Communication with Pavels is really good and he always seems to be available on the phone.

We are very happy with the work they carried out and would not hesitate in recommending them.
