Looking for a quality and competitive construction company for you next project?
WHO ARE WE?
Here at Astrum Construction we provide a wide range of building and maintenance services. From garage & loft conversions and stone extensions to barn conversions, conservation and restoration work, to list just a few. We can assist with the whole construction process from planning, approval & design of your project, right down to finer details that make your house a home such as lighting controls and smart home solutions.
With over twenty years’ experience we pride ourselves on our professional, personal and quality service. We can make your house the home you dreamed of, make your garage and loft the extra space you always wanted. We can build you your bespoke new house from start to finish or, with our more specialised area, restore and refurbish your period property. We can convert your old tired barn into an extension, or home, keeping the traditional look or putting a more modern twist on it. With a traditional barn conversion, we can create a beautifully large space with high ceilings for you to live in. Alternatively, if you require more bedrooms for a growing family, we can create separate living spaces through a barn loft conversion.
As a Client, you can be assured of a service that is of the highest standard, tailored to your specific needs. Quality workmanship is guaranteed from our highly experienced team and, as members of the largest trade association in the building sector, Federation of Master Builders, you can be reassured you won't be let down.
When you choose Astrum Construction our goal is to offer quality conversions and building works, from concept through to completion, for the wide spectrum of client needs, tastes and budget. We pride ourselves on our quality workmanship and an excellent, friendly and reliable service. We are customer orientated and throughout each building process we ensure our clients are kept up to date on progress and, more importantly, are happy with the end result.
WHAT DO WE OFFER?
At Astrum we hold a wealth of experience in understanding all the planning conditions and constraints involved in the construction of barn conversions. We can assist with the whole construction process from planning & approval of your conversion and design right down to lighting controls and smart home solutions.
The positive of converting existing barn buildings is that they, like new builds, are largely exempt from VAT, which you are currently able to reclaim via HMRC Notice 431C. Also, the strict planning constraints involved in the building of new dwellings in the Countryside are timely and expensive to overcome. Recent changes in planning ‘Permitted Development (PD) rights introduced in early April 2014 have transformed the landscape for anyone wishing to undertake a barn conversion in England (not applicable to the rest of the United Kingdom as it currently stands).
Barn conversions are the perfect build for those wishing to embrace original design features and character while utilising living space. The beauty of a barn conversion is that they allow for generous room proportions and high ceilings.
At Astrum one of the elements of construction that we specialise in is building/extending homes with natural stone, not just because of its inherent characteristics of quality and durability but also due to the fact that it lends itself perfectly to landscapes of rural locations.
Natural stone is a sustainable building material, the process of extracting natural stone from local quarries or reclaimed from nearby demolished buildings is far more ecological that the processes used to create standard building bricks.
Natural stone is:
- Highly durable
- Low maintenance
- Comes in many shapes and sizes
- Retains thermal mass
We can work with you to create the perfect home from the planning stages through to interior design and smart home solutions. We can assist with the design, and work through complications that may arise to ensure you get the exact home you have always dreamed of. We can also provide labour only teams to larger construction projects if required.
We are constantly updating our skills & knowledge of the building industry, we use sustainable materials wherever possible lessening impact on the environment & making your home as energy efficient as possible. We also work with the latest technology in smart home solutions, lighting controls, and security systems.
GARAGE & LOFT CONVERSIONS
Here at Astrum Construction we can create the extra space you need with a garage or loft conversion.
Garages and lofts are an ideal area to convert for that much-needed living space.
