Let us provide the blank canvas…

Our “shell & core” package is an increasingly popular option for clients who require the shell of their basement to be completed prior to commencing interiors and fit out.

A completed shell and core project will include excavation of the basement (or expansion) together with installation of structural steelwork, waterproofing, drainage pumping equipment, and a screeded floor, after which the project would be ready for the client’s appointed fitting out contractor to complete their works.

High standards, seamless integration

Working seamlessly with other industry professionals, we guide you through the building process — regularly liaising with client architects, building control inspectors, party wall surveyors and other specialist consultants throughout the project delivery stages.

Our clients say…

“Life in a small terrace open-plan house with two growing children had become challenging due to the lack of separate space away from the main family noise and commotion! St Albans Basement filled us with confidence as to what we could achieve and what was possible.”
