Our design-led philosophy demands a thoughtful approach to construction. We specialise in combining authentic crafts with cutting edge technologies, using our extensive expertise and hands-on style to ensure the client is always happy. We believe in perfectly functional homes made for modern living.
As construction specialists, we’re able to take a practical approach from the outset, so conceptual ideas can become tangible reality without delay or compromise. Our collaborative relationship with clients, architects and interior designers lets us pinpoint creative opportunities and introduce innovative solutions at every stage of the build.
We believe the potential for improving efficiency in the construction industry is huge, with good design and good planning leading to higher productivity, better efficiency and reduced wastage. This in turn produces higher quality for less, a more sustainable process and a safer environment to work in.
Clients that work with us appreciate that we care about their project – from concept design down to every finishing detail. We put all our energy into creating a beautiful place to live, so that you can enjoy your dream home.
Engaging with Beam from the start will maximise what we can offer, enabling us to realise the best potential of your project. But we specialise in supporting clients through the whole process, and even if you’re project is already underway, we can get involved at any stage and add real value. We want our clients to get the best from their projects and our experience is always available to make that happen.
Let us know about your big ideas and what you want to achieve. We can help to shape your project from the early stages so we can grow it together. From our years of experience we now position ourselves between design and construction, allowing each to interact with the other in harmony. The product is high quality, well considered design – realised into beautiful homes.
To achieve this we must be joining the dots from the start. We put the team together that fits the project and the client. At Beam we work with a selection of architects, designers, engineers and other specialists whose values and principles are aligned with ours. From this and from your introductions Beam can create the ideal team for that specific project.
We are always building strong relationships for the future. This is the key to the round table concept delivering. Everyone involved, everyone engaged, everyone has a stake.
We believe the design process has the biggest single impact on the success of the project, and we’re keen for clients to understand its value. Time spent well in a rigorous design phase will pay back over and over again as problems are solved long before the builders are on site.
At Beam we call this “Design in Time” and we know it gives us the tools we need to deliver the quality we promise. When design is not considered in time, opportunities can be missed, and construction problems may arise that cannot be undone without delay and cost.
Scope of works – a full descriptive breakdown of on-site activity from demolition to finishing including costed data with quantities. This will be the administrative backbone of the construction phase and forms part of the contract. This must be complete and signed off in agreement before work starts.
Specification (spec) – a comprehensive document of details relating to all aspects of the building from foundations to door handles. Knowing specific details like tile format from the start means we can avoid unsightly tile cuts and position brassware perfectly. We prepare for the finishing touches from the start.
Program of works – a detailed Gantt chart plan for the project. This is a live and updateable project management tool.
Full set of drawings – from every relevant specialist including architect, engineer, interior designer and landscaper.
CDM – Health and Safety regulations and requirements specific to your project.
Each site has a dedicated Site Manager and core team to make the site safe and commence construction. Beam’s bespoke software enables detailed weekly planning while capturing data for key metrics such as budget, spend and progress. This helps improve productivity on site through financial control and communication.
Everyone on a Beam site is driven by a passion for quality. We use the best people in their field to help us deliver our promises. Regular site meetings and organised communication means that nothing is allowed to slip.
When every t is crossed and every I dotted, our build team sign off your new home. The work that goes into every project is significant, but the results are worth it. The next chapter begins as you live in and enjoy it.
“We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us”.
