This work included taking out, widening and installing new DDA compliant doors. An existing bathroom was converted to provide for an easy access shower unit. A single storey full width extension was constructed to the rear of the property to provide increased living area and to create a large dining kitchen. Intelligent FS managed the entire scheme from client brief to handover of the commissioned works. The client is delighted with the works undertaken and is available to provide references upon request.

Intelligent FS have undertaken a variety of residential projects in recent years, each of which pose their own set of unique challenges.

We pride ourselves on our ability to listen closely to our clients’ needs and understand their vision. Our vast knowledge and experience in this sector enable us to provide a cost-effective solution to deliver their dream home.

Intelligent FS use a turnkey solution including surveying, design, building approvals and construction of the project.

At the beginning of spring 2021 we planned to have a single storey kitchen and dining room extension as well as some internal changes to the bathroom. We had seen work carried out by Intelligent FS the previous year and were impressed by the standard and by the helpfulness of the staff and tradesmen. We were not disappointed. At the planning stage Rob spent time with us to ensure we got the build we wanted and they advised us on the possibilities of extending our house. They managed the whole project from start to finish. 

Throughout the late spring and summer of 2021 the work was carried out. Our dedicated Project Manager ensured that the tradesmen were available and equipment and building materials were delivered. This was not an easy task when materials were on occasions in short supply. All the work carried out was of a high standard. It was evident that the Engineers took pride in their work. Where other tradesmen were employed this was arranged by Intelligent FS and the work was overseen by the Project Manager to ensure quality. 

Our extension is now completed and we are delighted with it. It gives us the extra space we wanted, a shower in the bathroom and ramp access to accommodate the needs of our grandson who is a wheelchair user. It has been a pleasure working with the Intelligent FS staff and tradesmen who have always been courteous and helpful to ensure we got the work done to suit our plans and needs. We would certainly use this company again.
