Keeping it Simple with our DTC Renovation Service

This month sees the official launch of the StuartBarrCDR Direct to Client Renovation service.

StuartBarrCDR want to make sure that all clients are catered for whether they are having an historic heritage building restored or a porch extension built.

The essence of the DTC renovation service is to offer a specific and high quality process to projects that do not require a third party to project manage and do not need planning permission. The process has been perfected over time to guarantee the best results, making sure timelines and budgets are achieved. 

The DTC renovation service will be lead by Chris Noonan, who has been working in the construction industry for 20 years. Chris has worked for StuartBarrCDR for 8 years, managing jobs such as Chequers, Le Manor aux Quatre Saisons and Basildon Park. His ability to run projects like clockwork meant he was the ideal candidate to take the lead on the new DTC service.

Chris states: “I believe in keeping it simple. There are easy and hard ways to do everything in construction and often projects can be over specified and end up costing the client way more than they need to spend.”

“By sitting round the table with clients and talking through their needs, we are quickly able to identify the build requirements and put together a schedule of works based on the most logical ways to make it happen. The key is identifying which projects need detailed third party plans and specifications and which are simple straightforward works.”

A recent project in Waddesdon was a great example of how fast and simple it can be. Tim and Valerie Philips wanted to maximise the space and light in their period cottage with a knock through and new external openings. Structural work was required but no plans or planning permission, so there was no third party requirements.

'We sat down with Chris and told him what we wanted; he listened and made it happen. We are very pleased with the results. All workers were prompt, courteous and tidy. The job completed on time and within budget, and we have already recommended StuartBarrCDR to two of our friends’ said the couple, who are delighted with their new space”
