When I discovered that planning permission had been granted to build townhouses immediately next door to me, I was not pleased. I live in the conservation area in Syston and was used to open space – admittedly an overgrown garden – immediately next door.

However, when I met Ian Brown, Projects Director of UCR Construction and Development Ltd., I was reassured. As a company, they deal with small building projects – in my case – three townhouses. From the plans and my discussions with Ian, I could see that the design and materials used met all the specifications of being in a conservation area.

I found the actual process of the build was not the traumatic experience that I had expected. The workmen on site were very considerate of the neighbours; they were local people, were very professional in their dealings and kept me informed of what was going on. Now, some 18 months later, I am left with three townhouses which are in keeping with the area, as well as pleasant new neighbours. I would have no hesitation in recommending UCR Construction and Development.

Firstly I would like to thank Ian and his team. The project came in on budget.
We were kept informed on progress all the way through. The site was kept clean and tidy at all times, even friends and neighbours couldn’t believe we had builders on site.
We would highly recommend them and thank you, Ian, for the extension we wanted doing quickly and professionally with a high standard of workmanship.

We first approached Ian in mid-2017 as we need some structural work doing in our garden. Right from the beginning, we were filled with confidence due to the professional communications we had with them.
We received out quote promptly which was easy to understand and included all of the works we requested.
The project commenced on the date agreed and the site was always kept clean and tidy. We received regular updates and were delighted when the project was finished on time.
The team were an absolute delight to work with, always professional and accommodating. I would thoroughly recommend ICR Construction and Development
