Laying the Foundations for the Ideal New Build


Surveys, Permissions and More


Before your building contractor can break ground, you must have the necessary planning approval and building permits that will likely pertain to your project. Ahead of attaining these two variables, you will also probably need to have your parcel of land surveyed.


As a local house builder, we have considerable insight into the responsibilities you will need to meet ahead of construction. If you’re at the start of your new build journey, we are more than happy to sit down with you and discuss exactly what you need to do regarding your specific project.


Like any reputable house builder in Melton Mowbray or Oakham, Milton Construction can apply for planning permission and more on your behalf.


Temporal Concerns


Like any other construction project, new house builds follow a set timescale for works. Our house builders draw this up carefully as it’s vital to find the right balance between swift, efficient work and optimal, safe results. Of course, the primary concern for most clients remains unexpected setbacks that can soon make a dent in the budget.


During the planning and design phase, our building contractors outline approximately how long the project will take. Our team shares more than 20 years of industry experience, allowing us to set a realistic timeframe capable of absorbing unexpected issues.


Expect the Unexpected


Speaking of unexpected issues – we always give ourselves a slight buffer zone in the event of unexpected circumstances beyond our control. No matter how diligent and dedicated a house builder may be, it’s impossible to control everything. For example, inclement weather conditions can halt progress in Melton Mowbray, while unforeseen delays in securing permits and permissions can arise in Oakham.


With a flexible timeframe, we can adjust and adapt to anything. Like all reputable house builders, we prepare for every scenario. This allows us to hope for the best while being ready for the worst.
