Your new build will begin to take shape vertically with the construction and erection of all framework. Roof trusses and door frames are also installed.

Enclosed Stage

Enclosed stage focuses on all elements that form the external structure of your home. This includes brickwork, roofing, window frames, windows, external doors and gutters. Rough-ins also occur where plumbing and electrical conduits are fixed.

Fixing Stage

Inside your home starts to come together at fixing stage as all internal details are fitted. This stage involves plasterboard, skirtings, architraves, internal doors, tiling and all cabinetry installation. Waterproofing is also applied to all wet areas inside the home.

Practical Completion
