Hawthorn Ashfield Extension – Ashfield Borough Council submitted this project on one of the public tender portals for the improvement and adaptation of an existing house to accommodate people with disabilities and our team took an interest in the project and the pricing team calculated the amount for the project and submitted it for consideration. 

The project involved building an extension to an existing house, which included the replacement of all major surfaces and made a new (ceiling, walls, floor), replacement of internal doors, windows and the installation of new first fixed sanitary waring in the extension, which was built into bathroom, that also had drainage work carried out to connect of a new pipeline to the city sewer.

Our team was able to win the project by giving Ashfield council with the reduced price estimate (To assist housing handicapped individuals at reasonable price) and by completing all of the tender’s requirements.


Our team of quantity surveyors originally analysed the Hawthorn Ashfield extension project. Svyat, our senior project manager, was assigned to the project when it was chosen as the winner of the contract and she oversaw it personally from the beginning to the end. Our contract manager spoke with the clients and the project manager on the job site throughout the project’s duration. The project manager successfully handled customer expectations and relayed all information to our personnel.
The project manager was assisted by our operations manager, Adam Walker, who made decisions in the best interests of the project to improve productivity and also ensured all of the staff daily work compliance. As for the materials and their deliveries, this was handled by the supply chain manager,George Hunter, in our team, who bought all the material lists and delivered them to the location for safe storage, and hired all the equipment for the duration of the project.

Our operations manager aided the project manager by making decisions that were in the best interests of the project to increase productivity and guarantee daily work compliance for the entire crew. The Supply Chain manager of our team, George Hunter, was in charge of the goods and their deliveries. He purchased all the material lists and transported them to the place for secure storage. and rented all the necessary tools for the project’s length. After our firm secured the contract, our price team first assessed the project. The project was given to a project manager who was assigned to it and who oversaw it personally from beginning to end. But first, the contract manager, who utilized the scopes of work/drawings to generate the tasks in the project system according to deadlines, extracted the rules for the list for each work/phase. The project manager spoke with the clients and the employees on the construction site throughout the duration of the project. During this time, the project manager took requests and comments from the client and relayed them to the workers.


Before the start of all the Hawthorn extension works, the existing furniture, doors, finishing coatings of the main surfaces were dismantled, i.e. the site was prepared for construction works.

The Hawthorn Ashfield extension project began with the installation of new pipes, thus all pipes and components had to be checked for defects and loose joints before installation. Trenches were dug in order to lay these pipes, and their width and depth were then measured in accordance with the requirements. The trench was backfilled and the installed pipes were checked after the installation was successfully completed. All necessary pipes were laid at the correct angle by our workers, who also made all required connections.

In order to dig the trenches, a concrete pump was employed, and the formwork system was implemented in accordance with the calculations’ authorized requirements. The formwork was set up by our personnel using plywood, and a concrete pump was utilized to pour the concrete. Sand materials that were appropriate were used for the backfilling process.

The site manager verified the availability of all materials in the right quality and quantity required for the execution of the construction before beginning work on the external brickworks. The brick wall where the extension was built was manually torn down, and the destroyed materials were removed using branded hand tools fit for the task. Additionally, the workers had access to the proper scaffolding in order to complete the brickwork to a high standard. In order to prevent the formation of thermal bridges, the edges of the insulation boards were released of adhesive after the brick layers had been laid, the layers in between the brick layers had been cleaned, and the insulation had been put. With waterproofing solution, the spaces between the exterior walls and window openings were entirely sealed.

For a secure fastening of the internal partitions, the ceiling, floor plate, and all nails were hammered in. The height of the space is taken into consideration when measuring and cutting vertical studs; intervals are marked to ensure proper installation. We fastened the drywall to one side after putting in the support structure, placed insulation on the inside, and then did the same for the opposite side. After the workmen had finished repairing all the items, they covered the plasterboard with a coat of plaster and painted it with the client’s preferred paint.

Scaffolding was deployed for the roof’s layout, and the required materials were loaded onto it. To achieve the best internal coating and minimise end joints, plasterboard sheets were laid, tiles were laid in even rows, and plasterboard sheets were laid. The margins of the plasterboard joints were also plastered, and the joints were skimmed with a special joint compound. The staff then made sure the interior surfaces were spotless.

Before installing windows in the proper locations, large strips of moisture-insulating material were used to line the openings. Windows were then installed appropriately.

Prior to installing the new inside doors, our team measured the openings where they would fit, secured the door frames with specific bolts, and then verified that each door operated smoothly and freely.

The new drainage pipes were tested before being put into service in the plumbing installation area, along with the other essential sanitary-ware appliances. Additionally, the surfaces of the floors and walls were prepared, and new tiles were installed with the proper apertures for appliances. A fresh set of kitchen cabinets was also fitted.
Before doing a full property re-wiring and installing a new consumer unit, the power had previously been disconnected and made safe by a competent electrician. The electrical work installation was done in accordance with the authorised designs and the most recent rules. We called National-Grid, who built an isolation switch and performed an isolation breaking test. Our electrician completed a complete rewiring of the property, installed a new consumer unit with new RCD breakers, dug holes into the walls where necessary, and correctly positioned all of the sockets and switches along the vertical and vertical edges. The switches were then directly connected to the circuit, and the consumer unit box was then covered with the necessary safety signs.
Before installing the new equipment, power was turned off, holes were bored where necessary, and all accessories were appropriately aligned along the vertical and vertical borders. The electrical installation was completed in accordance with the authorised shop drawings. The switch box was cleaned after which the switches were directly attached to the circuit.
At the end of all works, a general cleaning was carried out on the entire building site.



The Hawthorn Ashfield extension project was completed to high quality and by budget.
