New Build House Project

Full demolition of existing property and construction of new build house
Elburton - Plymouth

After tendering against four other building companies, Serivan Developments were awarded the contract by loss adjusters Cunningham Lindsey (on behalf of Aviva Insurance Group) to undertake the full reconstruction of a property on Elburton Road, Plymouth. The 1960s house had been built over a filled quarry, and was suffering from severe subsidence and structural damage due to the increasingly unstable ground beneath it.

This project consisted of; the complete demolition of the existing property, clearing of the site ready for pilling & ground beams, and the complete design & rebuild of a new house. The new dwelling was fully designed and planned throughout, and constructed using block and beam flooring and concrete block shell. Internal features such as; under floor heating, dormer roof conversion a Juliet balcony and a hydro bath were also fitted as part of the build.

As well as the new property, Servian Developments also undertook the rebuild of the swimming pool to the rear of the dwelling, which had also failed due to the subsidence. This included; extensive excavation of the area around the pool and refilling the area with Type 1 Hard Core, the fitting of a flexible pool liner, and the laying of paving slabs around the entire pool exterior.

The project was fully managed from start to the finish, and completed within the 11-month time scale we had originally estimated. Both the customer and insurance assessors were extremely pleased with the finished product, saying that Servian Developments exceeded all expectations, and agreeing that the outcome was simply stunning.
