Example of work 1
Project – Basement excavation, double storey extension and complete house renovation including rear garden landscaping. What was a small two-bedroom character cottage in the heart of St Alban’s Old Conservation Area has now been sympathetically transformed into a four-bedroom, three-bathroom family home. In a space restricted area where every inch of room matters, our brief was to maximise and modernise the living space without compromising the character of the property to create a beautiful family home. We excavated beneath the original property and added a double storey rear extension, the project has created an additional 1000 sq ft. creating a four-bedroom, 3-bathroom property with a rear full depth light-well. Our client has the benefit of living in a dynamic period property with the advantages of a modern-day specification including cinema room, bespoke wine storage, underfloor heating, a wet room.
Example of work 2
Project – New build basement shell, waterproofed, ready for next phase construction. An experienced St Albans builder appointed us to provide the basement shell to a new build house. The builder required St Albans Basement’s technical expertise to deliver the substructure and handover ready for the follow-on works. The basement was waterproofed by a drain cavity membrane system combined with Sika waterproof concrete, both fully guaranteed. We provided the builder with peace of mind and delivered the expertise required from below ground. We de-risked the project for the builder enabling them to progress with the new house construction, which is what they do best!
Example of work 3
Project - Basement construction comprising: office space, bathroom, media room, playroom, utility room, guest bedroom and storage area. This family home has doubled in size, thanks to the addition of a light, bright and spacious subterranean floor. The use of, lightwells and ceiling windows has transformed this period property into a large modern home. Hidden under ground is an amazing 100 sq. m (1076 sq. feet) of additional living space. With a ceiling height of 2.6m (28 feet), the floor to ceiling windows ensure natural light floods in. It is hard to believe that this area has been created underneath the original property. St Albans Basement was appointed to create a new living area to include an office space, family bathroom, media room, playroom, utility room, a guest bedroom and a storage area to house additional utilities.
