How We Work

Initial Inquiry

We are happy to discuss with you the plans for your project. We will ask you some basic yet fundamental questions to ensure that the project is suitable. We will provide plenty of good, sound and practical advice – it’s our pleasure.

Personal Visit

We will then arrange to survey your property and discuss your needs in detail. At this point, we will be more than happy to provide a free estimate and give an indication of timescale to complete your project.


We are more than happy to provide a list of customers who are willing to give us a reference. We can even arrange for visits to previous projects so that you can see the quality of our work.

Extension, Conversion, New Build

We work with local Architects and Structural Engineers, who can prepare a set of computer-aided design drawings for your approval. You will be advised if planning permission is required, and if so, plans will be submitted to the Council for their approval. Detailed working drawings are then prepared and submitted for Building Regulations approval. If you already have a set of plans with Building Regulations approval, a detailed fixed-price Quotation will be calculated. A complete schedule of work will be provided, listing all items included.

Project Management

All major Havian Contractors’ projects are assigned a supervisor from the initial survey through to project completion. A project will not be started until labour can be programmed to complete it. Our business is based on the core value of customer satisfaction and the timely completion of the jobs entrusted to us. We will work on projects daily and ensure that all tradesmen are fully aware of the customer’s requirements.

Agree a Date to Start

Once the relevant approval has been granted, we will agree upon a date with you to begin the project and will not leave the site until the project is finished.
