Middle Barton Pre-School

The completed childrens' centre at Middle Barton

An all timber building is still relatively unusual in the UK and is often frowned upon by planners who seem to think that such structures will be out of place. I believe that this project proves the lie of that argument. I ran this site from breaking ground in late September 2009 through to completion at the beginning of April 2010.



The secret to running a site successfully is communication and co-ordination. The different trades involved will always want precedence and often fail to see the bigger picture, being more interested in the completion of their segment of the project than in the project overall. The key is to slot all of these elements together ensuring that they work with and not against each other and of course there are other things to contend with which are beyond your control, such as the weather.Snow

What they say:

Carol Denley Trustee

Andy co-ordinated everyone on site, ensuring that every trade worked efficiently and safely. With Andy in charge the building of our children's centre progressed at an incredible rate.  Any problems that arose were dealt with professionally and efficiently, construction became the easiest stage of the project.

Andy built our large conservatory to a rather complex one-off architectural design, unfortunately there were errors in the design of the roof and Andy had to change the details in order to remedy the problem. The result is a conservatory which is a great success and has become the centre of our home life. We are very grateful to Andy for all the care and hard work he put into the project.
