From conceptual design to completion
Approved Trades Management build high quality bespoke homes, which are both architecturally and aesthetically pleasing, designed to blend in with the local environment. They are extremely efficient in terms of energy and running costs and adhere to current building legislation through the use of the latest renewable technologies.
Assistance can be provided through all stages from conceptual design to completion. Holding excellent relationships with a myriad of Local Authority Planning and Building Control Departments helps with the complexities of planning procedures. At the time of writing, we currently hold a 100% success rate of application to approval, including appeals.
The philosophy has always been based on delivering quality, environmentally friendly properties on time, within budget and to a finish that exceeds customers’ expectations. The quality of the new build projects undertaken can be attributed to the employed workforce. We are highly skilled, fully qualified and through years of experience have encountered all aspects of a construction project and are therefore fully able to avoid the pitfalls that a lesser experienced building company would see.
Health and Safety is paramount and is not achieved by coincidence, it is compulsory. Approved Trades Management achieves exemplary Health and Safety standards through awareness and comprehensive training of staff. Legislation is rigorously adhered to throughout the projects, keeping the works on schedule, in a safe environment. We employ specialist Health and Safety Consultants to regularly train staff and update our Health and Safety Policies in line with consistently changing regulations. Providing design and access statements, along with method statements and risk assessments for all types of work undertaken, is standard procedure.
Clients can choose to utilise the comprehensive design and build service. This option allows the entire project management of the build and will ensure that the project runs smoothly and within budget. Alternatively, we can work with existing plans. With years of experience we are well versed in working alongside surveyors, architects and project managers directly appointed by the client.
A very important aspect of our business is the acquisition of development land and properties for future redevelopment. We offer a generous remuneration package for any such sites acquired through a referral.
Approved Trades Management has the specialist knowledge and experience to identify land suitable for development. This land can be purchased either outright or via an option agreement. Alternatively, we can work with clients to obtain planning permission for property they currently own.
