Built in Solutions
Bespoke Bookcases in Calne, Wiltshire
Average rating: 5 out of 5 stars1 June 2016
“After a couple of false starts with other companies that were charging extortionate amounts for their built in bookcases and fireplace surrounds we found Built In Solutions of Oxfordshire through the Houzz website. We contacted them in February 2016 and arranged an appointment during which they took measurements and attentively listened to exactly what is was that we needed. After those discussions, during which we received much useful and helpful advice about styles and designs, we agreed about what was required and, in the next few days, a very sensible quotation was duly received and agreed. The work was scheduled for the middle of May and on the agreed date 3 chaps turned up with all their equipment and proceeded to build exactly what we had asked for. They were courteous, polite and professional in their approach and demeanor, and worked non stop throughout the day. When they were finished we were thrilled with the outcome and couldn't recommend them highly enough. They had built a fireplace and integrated it with bookshelves on either side with a space for a 60" TV (with all the wires concealed) above the fire, on a 25' wall AND installed a made to measure, floor to ceiling bookcase on a 15' wall and it looked superb. Although I have no pictures currently I believe they are returning to photograph the room in it's fully renovated state, i.e. new carpets, curtains, furniture etc. in the next few weeks. This is an extremely competent company with highly skilled workmen and a very professional work ethic that delivered high quality results at a very competitive price. I will be asking them to do more work for us in the future and would highly recommend that you speak to them. I will happily provide a verbal testimonial if required.”

Oliver Hazael Bespoke Carpentry and Plastering

“I was probably amongst the few remaining homeowners in the City of Bath who had not yet used Oliver Hazael Bespoke Carpentry and Plastering for works in my family home! The upside of that is we were able to see a number of examples of Oliver Hazael's work and choose the style we preferred. We also knew a number of referees. Oliver himself attended site on a Saturday to take measurements, draw some design sketches, and leave us with a quote to consider. Once we agreed a date, Oliver and his colleague arrived bright and early to set up. I’ve never seen contractors of any description set up such a comprehensive and immaculately maintained tool chain! Bear in mind it is necessary to vacate a suitably sized room to accommodate this setup, but it pays dividends in the end in terms of the quality of manufacture and fitting of units. Matthew was on site for two weeks during which he produced and fitted two substantial built-in wardrobe units, one for a bedroom cum office, and one for our kitchen. He was a delight to have on site, and we told him so. He was personable, immaculately turned out, obsessed with perfection, and tireless. He left each evening with no trace of his industry other than the temporary workshop where every tool was returned to its own box, and neatly placed under the workbench out of reach of children and pets. Again, we have never experienced professionalism of this standard. Needless to say, my wife and I are delighted with the bespoke units which we are now painstakingly finishing in white! The simple Shaker style doors, made to size, and the internal shelving are all cut and fitted to a high degree of precision. Even where Matthew had to accommodate a very wonky Victorian back-wall, the shelves are contoured to fit - not filled as one might expect from most "ordinary" carpenters. But, we're not surprised, Oliver Hazael Bespoke Carpentry and Plastering is no "ordinary" service. On cost, these sorts of bespoke fittings are not a small investment for most homeowners, but they most certainly add value to the property. Using best-quality materials and fittings, we expect ours to outlive us, and that makes for excellent value for money. We would recommend Oliver Hazael Bespoke Carpentry and Plastering unreservedly, but do your own research before choosing the right contractor for your needs.”

“I cannot rave enough about Sean Symington Design, his passion shines through his creative ability and professionalism. Sean was a delight to work with from the moment I contacted him, he is very hands from the initial concept all the way through to installing the last coffee table book. Sean takes the time to source one-of-a-kind aspects, such as lighting, décor and fabrics for each room. His talent to mix old century pieces with modern elements, transformed my home into a colorful, eccentric representation of my life. I highly recommend hiring Sean Symington to redesign your home, office, or restaurant as he will bring it to life in a very personable way.”

“We shortlisted Nick after reading his reviews, and gave him the job as he was the only one who really listened and was prepared to make what we wanted. What a nice chap and, more importantly, what an excellent craftsman! Building and fitting wardrobes in a bedroom where the walls and ceiling have never seen eye to eye presented some challenges, all of which were successfully met. Nick patiently guided us through the process, gave advice on design features and delivered bespoke furniture that is both practical and aesthetically pleasing. We were impressed by his care and attention to detail, and the obvious enthusiasm he has for his work. I wholeheartedly recommend Nick and will be asking him back to help with our next project.”

“For some years, we had planned to extend our 3 bedroom, end-of-terrace property and already had plans drawn up and approved. However, with the passage of time, we wanted to be sure that these plans continued to suit our purposes. We invited Nick to review the proposals and he made a number of very useful observations. Importantly, he helped us to see that we could reconfigure the space and change our way of living to enjoy an improved view of the garden and across the valley in a light-filled, open-plan kitchen-diner with separate seating area. He also identified some simple changes to the layout to maximise functionality of the various new spaces, creating a separate utility room that we had always wanted, and an area for our pets. He also spotted a design simplification that would facilitate installation of a new kitchen. The proposed renovation would affect many of the spaces in the house, so Nick produced several 3D models of the whole property to help us to envisage optional layouts. His advice, supported by the different models and estimated costs, also identified elements that were not worth pursuing, releasing funds for other aspects that were more important to us. With the basic layout agreed, Nick worked with the architect, structural engineer, and Council planning officers to ensure that the agreed re-design would be approved. In parallel, he produced a very detailed specification with electrical and lighting layout and schematic for the TV, music and IT installation; this, together with architect’s drawings, formed the tender package against which 3 contractors bid a fixed price. We came to realise that this detailed document with specific references was critical to containing the price within defined limits; through the specification, the contractor was given very clear instructions on specific building works, plumbing and heating, joinery, lighting, flooring and other aspects of the project. Nick ran a competitive tender working closely with us and the 3 bidders. Together, we then selected the winning contractor and work started. In essence, whilst we lived with the building work, Nick was on site almost every day to keep an eye on developments and make decisions where required. Largely, we sat back and made cups of tea for the builders. If we spotted anything of concern, we generally raised this with Nick in the first instance and he would either explain the issue to us or, if some action was required, would address it with the contractor. Having established the principal price for the works, Nick was also keen to show us the total cost of the project including carpets, window dressings, audio equipment etc. He had also designed a number of bespoke storage units some of which were eventually fabricated and fitted. Early in the planning process we met to review decorative schemes with samples to show how each room would look and feel, along with the associated prices. He maintained a detailed spreadsheet, so that we could budget for furnishings over a timescale that suited us. The spreadsheet included a risk budget for identified risks, to help us understand the level of caution required as the project progressed. The value of the main contractor’s work was £120k + VAT (including kitchen) and the total project budgeted price was £150k + VAT (including furnishings etc). Nick oversaw the contractor’s implementation of the design. He also managed any interfaces between the contractor and other suppliers, and organised purchase of additional items such as the kitchen, carpets, blinds, and audio kit. He took us to view kitchens and appliances so that we could confirm our requirement. He then negotiated a good price for us which saved several £ks. This was another feature of working with Nick; not only did he negotiate good prices on our behalf, he also passed on elements of his trade discounts to us, and identified cost effective solutions which more than paid for his fees. We were particularly fascinated by Nick’s attention to detail and came to realise and appreciate its importance. For example, his insistence on the apparently small detail of aligning the floor level at the threshold to the French doors was simple to implement, but the contractors would have proceeded to fit a step over the threshold (because it was easy and what they always do) without Nick insisting otherwise. We now have no such trip-hazards. As the project proceeded, Nick spent more time with us and our teenagers, confirming styles and tastes, bringing samples and putting together schemes, before sourcing carpets and other fixtures and fittings. He introduced us to a number of new ideas: all of our friends marvel at our purple glass splashback and resin-worktop; the walk-in rain shower is fabulous; the music distribution system is fantastic, the wide floorboards are a real feature, and the look of our spacious, contemporary kitchen-diner is very special. He also future-proofed the property with an ethernet network in all key areas of the home. To manage cash-flow, the project was split into 2 phases. In planning for this, Nick ensured that all foundations, cabling, and pipes for phase 2 were installed during phase 1, negating the need for re-work or additional work later. In fact, during the 6 month break between phases, the contractor failed to record works already completed and paid for, and were preparing to escalate the ongoing price significantly (by approximately £8k, or 30% of the price remaining). However, Nick’s dogged determination and scrupulous record-keeping allowed us to maintain the project largely within the original price (allowing only for a legitimate inflationary increase in materials and labour). Throughout the project, we had every confidence that Nick would address any issue with the work. He produced a detailed snagging list at the end of each phase and ensured that all items were closed before the project was signed off. We are delighted with our “new” home and, having lived with it now for over a year, we find it practical as well as stylish, with plenty of functionality, space and light. Nick is a pleasure to work with. He offers fresh ideas and has opened our eyes to opportunities that we would otherwise have missed. Equally, he accepts respectfully that a client may not always be able to follow a particular recommendation. He is extraordinarily diligent and reliable and his involvement saved us money overall (to the tune of many £ks). We will certainly continue to use his services for future developments of our home and it gives us great pleasure to recommend him to others.”
