Residential property rear & side extension, garage conversion,landscaping & pool area
MGS Construction carried out works to this property utilising the existing garage to create a loft conversion complete with a hidden room & bespoke furniture. The construction of a connecting building allowed for easy access to and from the existing property complete with its own kitchenette and WC. To the rear of the property, a single storey extension was erected to create a larger living area which also connected on the newly remodelled landscape & pool area.
Fire damaged affordable housing property refurbishment
MGS Construction working in conjunction with Whiteford CBS Building Surveyors, carried out refurbishment works to this affordable housing property following significant fire damage. Works included stripping the building back to the existing brickwork shell in order to remove any traces of fire & smoke damage. Extensive structural works were then carried out to allow for a complete refurbishment of the property.

To whom it may concern,
After a major fire at the above addresses our loss adjustors engaged Alex Whiteford Chartered Building Surveyors and MGS Construction to survey, project manage and complete a complete internal refit on 2 x 1 bedroom flats gutted by fire.
Being the Estate Inspector who manages these properties I was involved from the night of the fire up to completion. During this time I have inspected the flat at stages throughout the build to ensure The Association specification was maintained and managed the site as we had tenants continuing to live in the block while works went on.
My experience of the surveying, project management and building works has been totally painless. The communication throughout the works has been excellent with access to all the timelines and paperwork readily available. The quality of the works completed are of a very high standard with no snagging required or completion delays. The teams attention to detail, cleanliness and consideration to neighbours has been exceptional.
Overall it has been a pleasure to work with these companies.

Period home restoration following fire damage
Following substantial fire damage, this period home's unique design and history were almost lost forever. MGS Construction in conjunction with an open minded client with a traditional view, took on the challenge to bring the property back to life and restore it to its former glory whilst retaining its original heritage & charm.
For various works
I first met Sam from MGS over 4 years ago when we bought a house that needed EVERYTHING doing to it following a huge fire; new roof, new floors, new joists, rewiring and new central heating, a lift system, new bathrooms, cupboards, complete decoration etc. MGS Construction took on the job, and for 8 or so months we lived alongside the builders. Later we added a veranda and conservatory. Sam has always been unfailingly helpful, polite, friendly and efficient. He has overseen many workmen at once, always ensuring work is left clean and tidy, and made sure that we’ve been as little inconvenienced as possible and keeping me fully informed of progress throughout. The quality of the work done has been very high. So when my elderly aunt took the brave decision to take down a badly built and badly thought through conservatory and build an extension, I suggested MGS Construction. Being elderly she found the process of making so many decisions difficult – but Sam gently led her through the process, came up with useful suggestions, helped her find fittings etc, and gave her the beautifully built extension complete with hand rails to get down steps into the garden. She was utterly delighted, and charmed by Sam all the way through.
We then bought a flat in London for my husband to use as an office. Again, it needed rewiring, re-flooring and redecorating, all in a very tight timetable. It had very narrow communal access, and a difficult neighbor to negotiate with. Sam took pictures, before and after, everything they did – which was extremely useful in proving that NO mess had been made in the communal areas. He gently and politely talked to and calmed down this neighbor. To be confident that your builder will not make unnecessary mess, will clean up beautifully, and will remain extraordinarily polite to rather irrational neighbors, takes the stress out of a building project. Sam has been very good at listening to the brief, making really good, thought through suggestions, and delivering exactly what I needed even when I hadn’t thought of everything, because Sam had anticipated and worked out what I may have neglected to think through.
I cannot recommend Sam highly enough.
