From Edinburgh Property Renovations to Home Extensions

Since we were established in 1994, we’ve completed many domestic and commercial projects yet no two have been exactly the same. We therefore have a great deal of experience in all aspects of restoration and renovation work which is sympathetic to the type of property you own. For example, you may have recently bought a neglected Georgian town house, or former office, in the New Town and wish to restore it to its original splendour. Mackenzie Hughes can take care of this for you. We will use authentic building materials in keeping with your property’s age and listed building status, but add modern touches to make it suitable for 21st century living.

As well as property conversions, restoration and high end preservation work, we’re passionate about the possibilities for creating extra living space. This may mean suggesting ways in which we can make the best use of your home by removing the barriers to open-plan living; or adding more rooms with a bespoke extension for a high specification dining kitchen, a guest bedroom with ensuite bathroom, or even a design studio or home office. Whatever building project you have in mind, contact Mackenzie Hughes first.

Our Process

We don’t believe in a ‘one size fits all’ approach as every one of our clients is unique. As a guide however, we’ll usually take you through the following process:

  • Organise an initial meeting to fully understand your requirements, so that we advise which architect to use and why.
  • Organise and liaise with the architect and structural engineer where necessary to ensure that any and all necessary design and building warrant drawings are approved.
  • Outline the cost of the job based on materials, labour and contingencies, so that we can calculate an estimate for the overall project.
  • Produce a detailed Description of Work. It’s at this stage that we analyse the risk for any potential hidden costs to make sure that they won’t rise unexpectedly at a later stage.
  • Produce a project plan.
  • Commence work.
