Houghton ConstructionHoughton Construction is a well-established building and renovation company with a first-class reputation in the construction industry for delivering high-quality projects. We specialise in period property renovation and in sympathetic house extensions and loft conversions, mainly across Oxfordshire and the surrounding counties. We also have considerable experience in new build projects and in commercial works
We never forget that we are working on our clients’ homes. These are not just buildings but active environments where lives are lived, families are brought up, businesses are born, life journeys are made and precious memories are created. The results of our work will be enjoyed for many years after we have finished the project and, therefore, delivering a high quality project that fully addresses our clients’ requirements is of paramount importance to us.
Clarity and transparency are also important to ensure that our clients know the full scope of their project. We produce full specification documents and a schedule of works with all associated costs, dates and times, presented as a fixed price contract. This ensures that there are no hidden surprises and the client knows exactly what their project will cost and when each stage of the project will be delivered. Where a client wishes to make modifications to the plans during the project, we have a rigorous Change Control amendment process. The client can see exactly how their changes might impact the costs before deciding whether to proceed
Sustainability And Environmental Impact
There are clearly areas for improvement in sustainability across the construction industry as a whole. However, at Houghton Construction, we are constantly striving to improve the sustainable nature of our construction projects and to minimise the potential impact that our services may have on the environment. Where practicable, we are looking at reducing our carbon footprint, our energy usage and our water consumption. We source our raw materials responsibly and look at all opportunities to improve our recycling and waste management to help protect the environment.
