How Can We Help You?

Making that drawing a reality takes a lot of decisions. The benefits of self-build are that you get exactly what you want in the location of your choice with considerable savings on the price of a similar spec, size and quality ready-built property.

To achieve a successful building project you must plan meticulously and develop a high level of trust between yourself and your contractors. This requires excellent teamwork, collaboration, communication, and patience. We are here to help you achieve this.

A Tale of Two Houses

Melvin Construction Ltd has a wealth of experience in tackling complex projects, including those with difficult access issues. Despite the challenges presented by such projects, our team has consistently risen to the occasion, delivering exceptional results and exceeding our client’s expectations.

One of our most recent builds involved the construction of two large houses in the quiet village of Carharrack. The project was a concurrent one, which can make things a lot easier and faster when allocating trades for sequential projects. Our team was tasked with building two properties on land owned by two family members, overlooking the valley.

The properties themselves were extremely generous, with enormous vaulted ceilings and large living and dining areas that offered stunning views of the valley. Our team approached the project with a commitment to quality and attention to detail that is second to none and worked closely with the clients to ensure that their vision was fully realized.

The access issues presented by the site were significant, with limited space for vehicles and equipment. Our team had to carefully plan and execute each stage of the project to ensure that we minimized disruption. We had to coordinate with the trades on site to ensure that both houses were constructed and completed in a timely manner.

Metal pilings were also needed to support the side of the lane running parallel to one of the houses. This added a layer of complexity to the project, but our team was up to the task and the wall was completed with the same level of excellence that we bring to all of our projects.

The results of the project have been truly successful and are a testament to our team’s dedication to excellence. We are proud to have been a part of this project, which has added two exceptional properties to the picturesque village of Carharrack. We look forward to continuing to take on complex projects and delivering exceptional results for our clients.
