Extension and Refurbishment in Rutland

Project Overview

The client, Hanri van Wyk, approached us looking for a relatively small but high specification new build extension with associated refurbishment works to her existing home. The extension was to be used as an ancillary downstairs WC + utility room, with a full renovation and redecoration of her new open plan lounge and snug area overlooking the garden.

Given the extremely tight external access our modular construction system suited her needs perfectly.

Through an extensive design consultation and pricing process we were able to produce a design and specification that met the clients exacting requirements.

The project was complete in just over 3 weeks from start to finish and within the clients original budget.

Thincoat Silicon Render

The project involved installing a total of 12nr ground screw foundations to support our modular steel frame that was assembled on-site with pre-insulated wall panels.

The client opted for a contrasting thincoat silicon render finish to the exterior of her extension, two elevations were finished in a jet-black silicon render with the courtyard overlooking the hallway window in a more reflective bright white silicon render.

We used a slimline ALUK profiled Aluminium windows and two pane sliding door in jet black frames to give a stunning appearance and co-ordinate with the black render.

The extension was finished at ground and roof level with bespoke matching pressed aluminium trims and rainwater goods to give a seamless finish.

Plumbing and heating for WC and utility room

+ Foul + rainwater drainage works
+ Internal decorations and floor finishes.

Delighted with our extension! We wanted to move our utility room so that we could open the back of the house to the garden, and were let down by an architect and numerous traditional builders (frankly we think our project was just too "small" to keep their interest) . Subsequently we started searching for alternative methods and modular builds, and feel like we struck gold with Vita Modular. The team remained enthusiastic from start to finish, and worked with us creatively to make the build happen on a tight budget. The budget was meticulously calculated and kept track of, so that once we started we knew exactly where we stood with costs. We're still amazed how quickly the extension went up! As a bonus, without the need for concrete lorries and brick deliveries, the restricted access to the back of our house was never an issue. The team helped us with the structural changes required in the existing rooms and installed a new large picture window and sliding doors that open onto the garden (beautiful quality aluminium frame double glazing). We're still currently decorating and landscaping, but the extension has already made a huge difference to our enjoyment of the house and garden. Our only regret is that we didn't find Vita Modular sooner.
