Building, renovations and alterations

3f2 Carpentry offers a range of services from minor internal alterations such as removing or adding a wall to full-scale renovations, extensions/building and loft conversions. We can supply and manage all necessary trades including electricians, plumbers, plasterers, tilers and roofers.

We also have experience in the sympathetic preservation, repair and restoration of period property and listed buildings. We are able to re-instate period joinery and other features based on photographs or other local evidence. We have a good track record in communicating effectively with listed building and conservation officers, which is supported by our understanding of their objectives and principles when dealing with listed buildings.

 

Regulations and professional services

We recognise the importance of ensuring that all necessary regulations and standards are adhered to. This not only ensures appropriate standards of workmanship and safety, but also avoids complications when buying and selling property.

We are happy to advise on building regulations and planning requirements where appropriate. We can also liaise directly with the relevant authorities, and where needed can assist in the drawing up and submission of any drawings and plans.

3f2 Carpentry has full public liability.

 

Environmental awareness and special projects

We recognise that the building industry makes a very significant contribution to global warming and climate change. The materials used often cause pollution and use high levels of energy in their extraction, manufacture, transportation and use. High levels of waste are also often commonplace at many of these stages. Furthermore, it is important to carefully consider the final atmosphere and health of the home once a project is completed.

To this end, we source our materials carefully and install them to be ensure fitness for purpose, a healthy and safe environment and longevity. We try to minimise waste through careful ordering, and dispose of what waste cannot be re-used or recycled as responsibly as we reasonably can. Our timber is almost always sourced from sustainably managed forests.

This approach is applied to all our conventional and standard everyday work. However, we can happily go much further should customers require. For example, we can advise on non-standard green eco-friendly building materials and practises, which are becoming increasingly comparable in price to traditional materials. We are happy to consider re-use and recycling of materials. We can also modify our building methods, including finishes and decoration, to ensure they are as environmentally friendly as possible. We would be happy to provide any advice to interested clients.

On a wider level, we have over the years undertaken a range of interesting and unusual projects, including architectural joinery, and are always happy to hear of new challenges. We are resourceful, creative and good at problem solving, so please do let us know if you have any such projects or ideas, and we may be able to help make them a reality.
