Is finding a good builder as hard as it used to be…

It always seemed there were never any guarantees when it came to employing a builder to undertake work on your home, but have things changed in recent years making it easier to decide who to employ?

Clever Build and Design think it has. The building and design company has taken a fresh approach to the industry by developing a transparent work ethic and quotation system that puts the customer in full control of their building projects.

Simon Smith, Managing Director at Clever Build and Design, strongly believes people must have a clear understanding of all and any work that might be involved in a new building or design project before they sign the dotted line on the builders’ contract.

“The team at Clever Build and Design really do think smart, our vast experience is complemented with the passion to achieve outstanding results for our customers. We offer design and consultancy right through to the build and after care of your project. The complete life cycle of your building is important to us along with minimising the impact on the environment and ensuring we deliver you your ideal home in a fully transparent way.”

When asked what he meant by transparency, Smith was very clear in how the company works: “We really believe in making sure our customers fully understand the cost and complexities of the project work we are about to undertake for them. All our material and labour costs are mapped out down to the number of bricks and man hours, we obviously build in a contingency for weather, material cost fluctuations and possible complications, but include that in the pricing of the work. If these costs are stable and there are no complications, then the overall project price is reduced.”

But does the company really do what they ‘say on the tin’? According to Mr Moor from Southampton, yes they do. “I appointed Clever Build and Design and the work agreed was completed on time and on budget. I was kept informed throughout the process, there were no issues or complications along the way and I’m happy with the completed project. I would recommend Clever Build and Design to anyone looking to improve their home.”

Another customer, Mr Singh from Chandlers Ford, said: “Clever Build and Design were exceptionally good throughout the entire process. Simon Smith was very easy to get along with and the project was very well managed. Everything was completed on time and on budget, what I found exceptionally good was the materials used were of the highest quality. All the team went above and beyond to meet my requirements, including introducing trusted professionals for my specific needs.”

Clever Build and Designs really do build and design in the cleverest way, taking the stress and perceived burden out of any project by managing the entire process and ensuring the customer has the best tradesmen working on the project.

They work to the highest standards and at a price which works for the customer’s budget. Where possible, Clever Build and Design will use the most innovative sustainable technologies available to ensure the materials are as planet friendly as they can be.

The company works with its customers to create their dream homes and know each project is as special as each of the customers it works with. The team try their utmost to guarantee and provide satisfaction whatever the size of the project. From refurbishments to new builds, and green homes to graded buildings, they have the skills and right tools in place make this happen.

Smith said, “Our friendly approach is unrivalled and we build our relationships on trust and excellent craftsmanship. You can put your trust in Clever Build and Design to deliver on any project. Our dedicated and experienced team of trade professionals are always on hand to offer their expertise and guidance on any size project.”

Adding, “Our team will always listen to your needs, never assume and cater for any situation. Registered with the top industry bodies, we not only offer the highest standards, we offer the best advice and service you need.”
