Mansan built a three storey extension on the ground floor, first floor and loft also for a detached family home in Solihull, West Midlands. The ground floor was designed to be a cinema room, first floor was 2 bedrooms and on the second floor a bedroom was also constructed.


Project Type Residential Property
Client Solihull
Completion Date January 2019
Project Size 60 Square Metres
Time Taken 20 Weeks


The clients were living in the house while the extension work was going on so extra care was taken to ensure the safety of them while working was going on. Also measures were taken to ensure that minimal disruption was caused to the family. The key points we identified were:

  • Carry out thorough risk assessment
  • Maintain health and safety checks throughout project
  • Install temporary toilets for builders use
  • Install storage container to keep work space tidy

We had to liaise with a building regulations officer throughout the whole project to make sure the correct safety standards were met. The 20 week project entailed a lot of work but some key points were:

  • Excavate site for ground work, preparation for underfloor heating
  • Install underfloor heating throughout extension
  • Install steel beams and install bifold doors
  • Install two bathrooms, heating, underfloor heating, soil pipe runs, bar showers, tiling, toilets
  • Construct two staircases and install new electrics
  • Construct fibreglass roof
