Not All Basements Are Constructed Equally
A trustworthy, professional, financially stable basement contractor is imperative if you’re planning a basement, shell and core project…but not all contractors are created equally.
A basement, shell and core construction firm worth their salt will provide the solid advice and experience that could only come from an expert in this highly specialised field. Knowles is one of the most trusted basement firms in London, and for good reason…
Experience Is Essential
Robin Knowles, Managing Director of Knowles, shifted his focus to retrofit basement and shell & core construction over 20 years ago. As one of the original trend-setters of the time; building basements in London with his family business, ‘The London Basement Company’, he quickly went on to become London’s leading basement design and construction company.
Since then, Knowles has been fully involved in countless basement, shell and core projects in London (and the surrounding areas), working alongside some of the largest and most renowned architectural firms and property developers in the capital.
Knowles operates a ‘Value Engineering’ motto, meaning that the end user gets the most out of their investment.
Some less experienced basement companies can go overboard with frivolous features, leading to a loss of both space and budget. One common example of this is using underpinning plus a reinforced wall – basically two walls when one would suffice. Extra walls may seem safer, but when space costs up to £1,000 per square foot, if the walls aren’t necessary, you’re looking at a mammoth waste of space and funds. Knowles’ superior skill and specialised knowledge allows the team to provide high- quality of value-engineered solutions, tailored to specific requirements, without any unnecessary extras.
Knowles team approach every task and interaction with the utmost professionalism. From initial planning permission stages, to regular and in-depth safety training onsite, and even community awareness and support on and off site, Knowles is competent and efficient at every juncture.
