houseUP works as a building contractor in London. We created a streamlined tested process to use the best approach for each specific project. We assign the optimal tradespeople, teams and managers. We define the best plans, schedule, site management to each unique construction project in London.
We assign one of our in-house structural engineers to each project. This allows us to ensure higher standards in the construction, with a particular attention to the structural work. Especially when altering an old building with structural modifications, we can dynamically prevent, detect and sort out structural issues. With our structural onsite optimisation, the findings after the strip out or during the construction don’t cause delays or additional costs to our clients.
Professional indemnity and other insurances
As professional building contractors, houseUP is covered with all the professional insurances needed to carry out all types of construction projects, including professional indemnity insurance for structural optimisation.
Building regs and other requirements
houseUP takes care of building regs and other legal requirements for construction works, including for example H&S documentation and compliance, planning conditions, party wall agreements etc.
houseUP has in-house project managers who studied and worked in the UK for several years. They are all university educated in engineering or architecture. They have worked on building sites since the very start or their career and joined houseUP for its innovative and modern approach to construction.
Finishing and materials
Finishing is the most visible aspect of a house renovation and makes a big difference in the overall happiness after a big refurbishment project. houseUP has a special attention to finishing details, both in choosing materials and in installation. We provide high quality finishing and materials at extremely competitive prices. In particular, we have direct access to the top Italian manufacturers of porcelain tiles and kitchens. This means getting higher spec finishes for budget, or lower costs for the finishes in the specs.
As building contractors, we are constantly researching and keeping up to date with the latest construction technology. Attention to the environment impact, materials life cycle, energy efficiency are the focus of our innovation roadmap.
We specialise in structurally challenging projects and we partner with off-site construction companies and specialised architects and designers, to build with a low impact on the environment and the existing built areas. Off-site construction can often allow lower budgets and more flexible design and planning options.
We use digital tools in our daily activities, for project management and direct communication of all the parties involved in our projects. For each project we create a dedicated instance on houseUP communication platform, to share files, pictures, comments and to exchange immediate feedback on anything regarding the project. The platform allows us to keep a sleek and transparent decision process and tracking of all the conversations in one place.
