Trust us to start the project off right!
This site was on soft sand which made for a quick dig and pour of concrete for foundations. Opting for a traditional concrete oversite to save cost on this large home. Additional support foundations for the concrete slab pour was necessary to support the oversite on this soft ground, with plenty of good access a traditional oversite didn't take much longer but saved a chunk of budget.
This is the second time we have used Absolute Armour and Sons for a house project, great work and fabulous team to work with.
We returned to this property after finishing the foundations and concrete oversite to the extension to a typical building site mess. Simple in-expensive solutions with dwarf timber sleeper walling, Natural stone paving and new lawns transformed this space.
Very easy to deal with and a good can do attitude.
This inexpensive new home was on a very tight site with limited storage. A relatively easy foundations dig and pour was complete with a traditional concrete oversite due to lack of material storage space. We installed all underground services including a 2.5 metre drop, Saddle pit and trench to the main sewer pipe.
1st class all round service.
This site consisted of a small new semi-detached at the end of an existing terrace row, New build and a small elevated 2nd plot. Built on an old landfill site both plots needed to be piled due to unstable ground and had gas membrane to the oversite. We completed the builds to block and beam membrane oversites and all underground services, returning after the build to complete landscaping and surfacing.
Absolute Armour are Absolutely fabulous. Hardest bunch of workers by a long stretch and it shows in the finish and time scale.
The Foundation dig and pour for the large Orangery on this site was a relatively simple one due to the elevation and the integrity of the York Stone Slabs to support the plant weight. In comparison due to the high-water table the septic tanks, soakaway and all other services running from a new pavilion were a difficult installation due to the ground conditions.
Absolutely fantastic. Excellent work ethic, can do attitude nothing was too much trouble. Punctual, full hardy days work, energetic, polite and friendly.
