Why Choose Us?

Get in Touch

First things first, YOU get in touch with us – we do not cold call. We will be more than happy to have a NO PRESSURE sit-down meeting with you to discuss how James Alan Construction can help build your Dream Home or Kitchen Extension. 

When working with us, we start with a call over the phone with our Director, Alan. He will walk you through our process, work out if and how we can help, and then find a time for you, our team and your family to meet up on site. 

Meet On Site

Before we go too far down the process, we want to make sure WE are the best builder for YOU.
This is why we meet on-site to establish the following:
  • A clear scope of works
  • Your must-haves and nice to haves from our client selections checklist
  • Our next steps of obtaining drawings with one of our preferred partners or from your own architect
  • A clear budget and timeline

Preliminary Services

Once we have a clear idea of how we can help, we aim to give a well established preliminary service. Usually, these include…
  • Budget
  • Timeline
  • 3D Render of the build
  • Proposal Drawings
  • Timeline Checklist

Working Drawings

We’ll work with your architect or our preferred partners to produce the working drawings.

At this stage, the drawings will be advanced enough to submit for Planning Permission and Building Standards Approval or both if required. 


Project Begins

Before we begin, we will introduce you to our whole team and get you set up with our weekly communications process. This is so you can be kept up-to-date on the project as it unfolds, and if the Project is remote to you, the process is in place so that you don’t disrupt the working teams onsite with unexpected visits. Remember, we want you and your family to be safe and we want you to move into a high-quality build on time.

Fixed Pricing

This is where the details are ironed out and we sign the contract and get a deposit to secure you a place in the calendar.
Changes can be made to the plans from here…. it’s called a Variation. Getting a really accurate starting point means there are no nasty surprises and you can get or move into your New House or Extension sooner.

Major Milestones

We love celebrations so, at major milestones, we’ll get you onsite with the team and witnessing the moment. This may be anything from the luxury kitchen you have chosen going in, the roof going on, walls coming up or finishings being installed. 

Move In day

Once the team completes our very specific quality control checklist, we can then say that we are complete! We are now able to welcome you into your newly completed Project.
We include a professional commercial clean so you can begin entertaining immediately after we hand over the keys and pop the bubbles with you.
