Refurbishment Advice Services in London
The business of building refurbishment is a complicated process that starts with a well-thought-out concept, and is pursued in a systematic way until its completion.
Engineers who do this type of job anywhere on a regular basis will tell you that it would be easier to build a new building from the ground up, than to repair and refurbish an old one and give it a fresh new look.
But either way, refurbishing a building should not be too stressful on the part of the owner, as long as he plans the project well and talks to the right people.
Weathering and Deterioration
First of all, there has to be a clear direction that the refurbishment project will take. Building owners may want a restoration of the same old features in a building that have started showing signs of weathering and deterioration, in which case the expected result is a fresh-looking structure that does not lose the features of old.
On the other hand, the owner may want to entirely remodel the building, demolish old features, and impart a modern look that would be more attuned to the times.
Whatever is the owner’s direction in this regard, that has to be made clear from the start. In most cases, the owner may have to start dealing with the property renovator even at the conceptualization stage of the building refurbishment project.
Bigness Construction can assist you in this regard, providing you detailed plans once you have decided what your director should be, and continuing on the renovation work until completion.
The property renovator
Now, you may ask whether a full restoration to a building’s original appearance may be more expensive than a full modernization package. Well, that all depends on the extent of the work, and on the number of features that will need to be changed, replaced, or simply removed out of the equation.
Some of the original lighting fixtures, for example, may be harder to find today than are more modern fixtures. If you could find them, these old fixtures may either be more expensive, or cheaper than the original that you wanted to replace.
That will be a major consideration, too, when you have to look for wood patterns similar to the original, or door knobs and handles that may be as hard to find.
In other words, before proceeding with the building refurbishment, it would be wise to make a checklist of the items of work and materials needed, before you decide on whether to do a restoration, or entirely remodel the building.
