Project Manager Basement Extension W London

Project Manager Basement Extension

Project managers for basement extensions are key to experiencing a successful build. 

This basement extension and refurbishment project came about when our clients bought a 19th century three storey end of terrace townhouse in West London, together with some adjacent land. Creating extra space in your home in London increasingly means digging, and this stunning basement extension and refurbishment project is no exception.

A new basement was created with a bedroom suite and a single storey family room over it. The house layout was reconfigured to create an open-plan kitchen/family area. Sliding, folding doors were added to the kitchen creating flow into the paved and decked garden area. A pixelated south facing brick wall was a beautiful design feature. The green roof of the new extension was then planted with meadow wildflowers and a new roof terrace from the rear first floor bedroom was added.

Whilst most of the build progressed relatively smoothly, the main contractor suffered from financial difficulties meaning he could no longer trade towards the end of the project. One of our key roles was to liaise with the administrators to ensure that our clients’ best interests were being met. Without a project manager (link to Building project management page) on board this could have caused our clients a great deal of extra expense, time delays and stress however we were able to ensure the project stayed on track. CLPM (link to Who we are page) were instructed to fully project manage the build and found alternative individual tradespeople to use to finish the build. We got new quotes, worked out a detailed programme and project managed the building works to completion.

CLPM Services used by our clients:

Design Review, Budget, Tender Process, Monthly Cost Reporting. Contract Administration role with main contractor with site inspection then full Project Management using individual trades.

I definitely couldn’t have done this project without a project manager. To have someone to take away the burden of chasing builders, it was much easier to have a project manager worry about it.
