houseUP is a construction company in London, specialised in high end residential and commercial projects.
Our construction experience in London includes adding storeys to Victorian blocks of flats in conservation areas, new builds for private homes and small blocks of flats, extensions, loft conversions, basements in listed buildings, conversions from office to residential and more.
Our projects are managed following a successfully tested process, designed to assign the perfect team for each construction project.
We work with highly specialised sub-contractors and tradespeople, to use the construction team with the right experience. For basements, loft conversions, extensions, renovations, fittings, you will always get the right team for you.
We partner with architecture firms to provide planning and design services, so that you will work with the right professional, from a straightforward planning permission to more complex planning applications.
For the construction, each project is assigned a dedicated project manager plus a structural engineer, fully covered by professional indemnity insurance, to make sure the structural design is implemented correctly.
Our structural engineers can also optimise the structure in progress, when changes are required during the works, at no additional cost.
houseUP did a 4 month complete renovation of our flat in South Kensington. We were very pleased with their work. Vincenzo put together a great team led by a very capable site manager. They used high quality subcontractors for plumbing and electricity. They communicated well and in a timely manner with our project manager regarding issues and problems. They also worked well with the 3rd party MEP engineer and they handled minor issues with neighbours professionally. Works were completed on time (critical due to Covid restrictions) and on budget. All three tenders were similar in price, but houseUP’s was the most comprehensive/detailed which made it easy to evaluate.Harald E. South Kensington, November 2020
I used houseUP to renovate a flat in Shoreditch whilst I was overseas. I would certainly recommend them as, whilst expensive, they provide an excellent service and undertook to make the process as pain free as possible for me. They also worked well with my designer.Kate V. Shoreditch, September 2020
I would absolutely recommend Vincenzo and the houseUP team. They completed an 8 month full refurbishment/extension of our house at the end of 2019. They managed every detail of the project and did so with such a high level of care - often it felt like they were carrying out works to their own house! They were always available to discuss when needed and kept us in the loop as required (but didn't over burden us with issues they could easily resolve themselves). We are delighted with our new family home and I feel like the process was made so much less stressful by using houseUP.Sarah G Willesden, April 2020
Vincenzo and the team were enthusiastic, creative and engaged. They brought the project in on budget and I'm happy to recommend them. Their approach of having in-house structural engineering really helped make savings by integrating the disciplines involved with design and construction.Andrew W. Chiswick, November 2019
Team, that is an absolute pleasure to deal with. Professional, helpful and responsive, with a direct approach to projects. Look forward to continue working together in the future.Vita Architecture April 2019
We highly recommend houseUP. As architects, it is always difficult to find good contractors and houseUP and the team are very professional and have great communication skills. Looking forward to working with them in the future.White Red Architects December 2018
I hired houseUP after meeting with Vinz and the team - I found them down to earth, easy to deal with and very flexible and fair with me, unlike many other companies we asked to quote our project. They completed a double storey side extension and rear extension for me, plus complete renovation of my house. We have recently moved back into our house after completion of the project, and could not be more happy. Even if there are any issues at this stage, they are always on hand to help and put things right. It was daunting having to think about a company to do such major works for us, however Vinz was great all throughout the project and helped us achieve what we wanted. He was always available to speak to, and is knowledgable and friendly. The transparency is something I do not think we could have got with most other companies, and for this I am grateful. Thank you guys!Junaid C. Gants Hill, September 2018
The houseUP team came to the rescue to renovate our penthouse in Shoreditch, London, after our first builders did a runner. They are great guys and trustworthy, they're real construction professionals and manage their subcontractors well to ensure a good quality of finish.Jamie and Lulu Shoreditch, SEPTEMBER 2017
Vincenzo, Mike and their teams of subcontractors are a breath of fresh air to the construction market. They are extremely well organised and professional, providing a high end service, with clear and constant communication to clients throughout their projects, not matter how big or small. Alison's rear extension was the first the we completed with the houseUp team and we never stopped working together since our first construction project. We enjoy working with houseUP as the projects are realised with ease, on time and on budget. We highly recommend these guys to all of our clients for construction projects of all sizes in London and beyond!MODEL PROJECTS (DESIGNERS) AUGUST 2017
houseUP managed works in our new flat in London, including new kitchen, new bathroom, new tiles, walls paint, sliding doors, installation of wood floors, you name it! all finished in time, always available to give ideas and suggestions and most importantly, very reliable, such a rare find in the construction industry! Thank you!!Arianna M. Richmond, February 2017
We hired houseUP for a two storey side extension and a single storey rear extension, in addition to completely refurbishing our house in London. The team was very efficient and completed the project ahead of schedule. During the work they were incredibly supportive. They also helped us choose finishes, colours and materials. The porcelain tiles, wooden flooring and quartz worktop installed really make our home special. They got a beautiful Italian kitchen imported to my specification, and through their direct channels I got top quality at a very competitive price. They are truly a construction team you can fully trust and are highly recommended.Alec P. Croydon, July 2017
