Alma Avenue, Highams Park

Highams Park

Scope of works:

  • Rear extension
  • Ground floor refurb
  • New kitchen

This simple rear extension added a huge amount of space to this mid terrace property and with the refurb of the ground floor completed too brought to it a new lease of life.

Being a terraced property meant access was through the house so we fully protected the areas and screened off the stairwell which meant our clients could still retire upstairs undisrupted. Following the build of the extension, all the existing timber floors were lifted, insulated and underfloor heating installed before new floor coverings being re-laid.

Large roof windows were fitted along with a new kitchen and bespoke cabinetry was created. Aluminium bi-fold doors and a new patio area further still increase the amount of value added.

Absolutely outstanding. Brilliant job done with excellent ideas. Very efficient, clean and very tidy. Respectful and friendly team. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

We had an extension and full refurb carried out and Innovate certainly didn’t disappoint! Tony, Ross and their team were professional and reliable from the beginning and as we had to live in the house during the works, they managed to keep our home clean and completed the project to the highest of standards with minimal disruption to our daily lives.

We would definitely use them again in the future and would highly recommend them without hesitation.

Absolutely incredible! This is the second time we have used this team and I am literally their number 1 fan.

We bought an old Victorian house last year that needed everything doing to it – an extension, a dormer, walls being knocked down, change all electrics and plumbing and I can honestly say it was very plain sailing all because of Innovate!  I have only praise for them. 

Firstly they promised to start in August (which they did) then they promised to be completed by Xmas (which they did after a million people told me there is no chance a builder will stick to their word) and they even helped me with the renovation including the minor detail like picking a fridge!! (Which I feel is not a Builder’s duty but they believe the client needs to be happy throughout)

They went above and beyond at every part of the journey and completely took the stress away. Even when I agreed to not having water in the island in the kitchen (and they had already cemented the floor) I changed my mind and they just simply dealt with it. They didn’t complain because they knew that’s what we wanted. 

They are incredible builders with incredible contractors and I cannot fault them in the slightest!!

Would highly highly recommend!

“I used Ross and Tony in 2018 for a complete ground floor refurbishment and single storey extension.  They came highly recommended and lived up to everything I was told.  The works included new foundations, structural steels, underfloor heating, rewiring, replumbing, plus installing a new kitchen and all the plastering and decoration.  They project managed all the various trades brilliantly, as well as liaising with external third parties such as building regs.  Throughout the project they gave me invaluable advice and came up with innovative suggestions for any problems encountered.  At every stage of the work they kept me informed and updated and were very respectful of our home – ensuring we could still use it for cooking, washing, etc.  From the initial quote, through the works and post build snagging, their service has been impeccable and I am happy to recommend them to anyone.”

How It Works

Download Brochure


We will meet with you personally to discuss and understand your requirements and explore your property potential. We want to build a clear picture of how you envisage your space so that we can better translate this to your dream solution.

If architectural drawings are available at this stage, we will then offer a detailed, competitive quotation with no hidden costs.


Space Design

If you don’t have drawings ready at this stage, we are happy to guide you through this process and connect you with our highly recommended architect firm. We believe in trust and transparency, leading us to build a strong and long-lasting relationship by working side by side with them.

Over the years, our collaboration has matured on the common understanding that good design, aesthetics and practicality are paramount to every one of our projects. Our number one priority is to ensure the final design reflects your desired outcome.



After site set-up, including security, protection and welfare, we will oversee the entire project whilst carrying out elements of the work too. Our clients are guided through every stage of the plan and kept up to date about its progress by means of regular meetings and a mobile messenger service which will provide live status updates.

Transparency throughout every step of the project also means everyone is always up to speed on any alterations.



All clients benefit from a 6 month ‘health check’ after project completion. During our visit, we will perform an inspection of the build during which we will ensure everything is in order. We will also carry out any maintenance that may be required.

As we believe in delivering outstanding value to our customers, after the 6-month period, we are happy to offer further advice and answer any questions that may arise. We want our clients to benefit from and enjoy in full what we have created, for the years to come.
