Domestic "Project Recovery". 
Project Recovery Contract, for 2/3rd's Built "New Build" Domestic House in North Essex. 
The original Main Contractor for this project started the building in December 2011 and progressed the building & site to only approximately two thirds complete in nearly eleven months! 
He was removed in October 2012, when Thyme were appointed as Employers representatives & contract administrators and the building completion has now leapt forward with the appointment of a new contractor. 
At the time of writing this article in October 2012, the new contractors have been on site for just two weeks and the building & site have been completely transformed, with the landscaping & external works nearing completion and the upper floor also nearly complete. 
This Client is now once again looking forward to celebrating Christmas in her new home! 
* Update in early December 2012 : - this building is now fully completed and will be occupied before Christmas! - Congratulations to the whole team for a fantastic recovery project!

Bespoke New Build House in North London. 
Update Summer 2013 - One of our bespoke house designs being built on a new plot in Ilford, Essex.  
- due for completion at the end of 2014.  
This was a highly personalised new house design, provided specifically to suit both the plot restrictions and the requirements of a young family who wanted to live close to their family in Ilford. 
The builder says "These are the best drawings that I have ever had to work from" and he wants to cuddle the designer! 
Update: - This family home is now complete and the Client has written to us (in September 2014) saying "The house is everything that we hoped for and more"! - Plus they have asked us to complete another design. 
Another satisfied and ongoing customer!

We designed the building, obtained the planning & Building regulation consent's, recommended the successful builder and supervised the the construction works on site - I true cradle to grave service!
