Based in Woodbridge, we offer a range of services including general building, structural works, conversions and extensions, renovations and restorations, kitchens, bathrooms and landscaping. More than just general builders, we have a team of highly skilled trades and craftsmen to get your project finished to the highest standards.
We believe that time spent in planning and scoping projects pays dividends later. With a thorough understanding of what you need from your building project, we can advise you on the best approach, how much it is likely to cost and how long it will take. We pride ourselves on our attention to detail – it can cut costs and avoid issues during the build stage.
We bring your vision to life by using the latest design technology to visualise how your project will look when it’s complete. Once designs are finalised we’ll apply for planning permission and organise building regulations on your behalf. We know local planning officers, so we’re well versed in what is likely to pass first time. Once we get the green light, we’ll schedule all the specialist tradespeople involved. from plumbers and electricians to painters and decorators.
All too often builders are criticised for not communicating. Not us! We keep you informed and involved from initial consultation to follow-up care. There's always a foreman present each day at each of our projects, who acts as your first point of contact for any issues or questions.
A well thought out extension adds value to your home. But creating results you’ll love all comes down to the details. Floor levels and the location of lighting and electrics, windows, roof-lights and doors all needs careful planning if your extension is to blend seamlessly with the rest of your home.
Whether you’re considering a single storey, two-storey, loft conversion or over-garage extension, Samuel David Construction provides a ‘turn key’ solution. That means our team takes care of every aspect, from sourcing architects and structural engineers, to ensuring every light and fixture is exactly where you want it. We can even suggest interior designers if you’re not sure where to start.
New build works can take a little longer through the planning process, but our expertise in this area – and our relationships with local planning departments – will ensure your project moves smoothly, gaining permission first time around. We believe in keeping you up-to-date with developments, however, we’ll be guided by you about how much you want us to involve you. It all comes down to what suits you the best.
As a county, Suffolk is full of fantastic old buildings and, being a Suffolk construction company, we’ve been lucky to work on many on them, enhancing their features and bringing them in line with twenty first century lifestyles. Some of Samuel David Construction’s most stunning projects have combined the character of an old building with the functionality and form of modern design.
Many of the Samuel David Construction team have specialist skills that are recognised by construction and heritage bodies that enable them to work on old buildings. So, whether the job entails painstakingly restoring original features, sourcing reclaimed materials or using specialist skills and craftsmanship from a bygone era to protect or enhance plaster, wood or brickwork, we can help.
Every old building has the potential to reveal some surprises: it’s common to find things like a long-forgotten cellar. With that in mind, we’ll give you as precise an idea as we can about the timings and costs involved on your project, but we’re also happy to charge a fixed day rate for the team members working on your project to help you stay in control of costs.
Effective management is the secret to any successful building project, and that comes from an in-depth knowledge and mastery of the elements involved. All our projects are planned and priced down to the minutest detail to keep projects running to time and budget.
Everything is focused on getting the right people with the right skills to the right places at the right time, along with the materials and products needed. An expert quantity surveyor prices every job, and the larger of our projects will each be overseen by a foreman. They’re on-site most of the time and are ably supported by a contracts manager who oversees multiple jobs and supports the foremen with larger issues. A health and safety consultant ensures we’re working safely across all our jobs.
Every member of the team understands the role they play, and we’ll introduce you to the key people working on your project. We’re reliable, tidy and courteous and completely professional, always striving to minimise disruption to you, your family and your neighbours.
