Whitehall Construction has the expertise to take any project from design to completion
Sophie and Daniel May recently completed a rebuilding project on their new home. When they moved in, she was pregnant – the couple already had two young children – and they needed everything finished before the birth. Here Sophie recalls the experience of working with Jason Wilkinson of West London company, Whitehall Construction.
‘It was a major undertaking as nothing had been done to the property for 30 years. We wanted a kitchen extension, a side return, a basement utility room and an extra loft bedroom. The decor was dated, so it also made sense to redecorate the whole house in one go. In the end, no room was left untouched.
Given that Daniel and I were working full-time, micro-managing was out of the question. It was essential that we could trust Jason to work on his own initiative. That’s where I really appreciated the communication process. He was on our wavelength, always available and very hands-on. The site team was equally accommodating. To start with we lived in the house and they were friendly and caused minimum fuss.
Jason also proved helpful with practical design decisions and ensured we had no nasty surprises. One potential problem arose with the basement. When we dug down to get a good head height, the Structural Engineer said that it required underpinning. We hadn’t expected that. Jason just got on with it and absorbed the costs. I’m sure other issues arose, but he found solutions without ever making it a problem for us.
The job took six months and, amazingly, it was finished two weeks early and on budget. I can’t recommend Jason and Whitehall Construction highly enough.’
