LSP Builders is a trusted building contractor operating in Market Harborough, Corby and the surrounding areas. Our experienced house builders work on an extensive range of new build projects. We work alongside your architect at all stages of the job but also offer a full design-and-build service should you require it. If you need help with a development or an addition to your property portfolio, we are the reliable contractors who bring your concept to completion.
We arrange an initial meeting, either with your own project manager or with LSP Builders as your assigned sole contractor. This gives us the chance to see the full scale of the job, where we need to comply with current building regulations and how we’ll deal with planning permission. Our services include support with your planning approval application and full liaison with local authorities in Market Harborough, Corby or the rest of the Midlands.
There a five key stages to building a new home.
STAGE 1 – STRUCTURAL WORK
Our house builders begin with the structural elements of your new home. We excavate the land and install foundations before laying the floor slab. Next, we complete brickwork up to the first storey of the property. Our building contractors put the floors into place, complete the remaining brickwork and finish the roofing structure.
Before completing this phase, LSP Builders examines the work so far to ensure the build is sturdy and 100% watertight.
STAGE 2 – FIRST FIX
The first-fix stage takes care of the initial plumbing, electrical and joinery work. We remove the need for secondary main contractors by using our own network of reputable subcontractors, all of whom come from Market Harborough, Corby and the surrounding areas. Our subcontractors uphold the same high standards as our house builders. This ensures their work complies with building, Gas Safe and Part P regulations.
This stage also sees the construction of staircases, internal ceilings and the formation of rooms using plasterboard partitioning systems.
STAGE 3 – SECOND FIX
During the second-fix stage, the site starts to look more like a home. Our subcontractors fit taps and sanitary ware into the appropriate parts of the build and an electrician fits sockets and switches. The first and second-fix stages require careful management of our own personnel and subcontractors to ensure completion of building, plumbing and electrical work at exactly the right time.
Our house builders then apply framing around the doors and windows before the plasterers and decorators come in to finish the cosmetic side of the new build.
STAGED 4 – EXTERNAL WORKS
Our tradesmen apply external rendering finishes to complete the outside of the build to the architect’s specification. Where required, LSP Builders offers homeowners in Market Harborough, Corby and the surrounding Northamptonshire and South Leicestershire areas a full hard landscaping service. This includes the construction of external brickwork, driveways, patios and permanent outdoor features.
Based on the agreed specification, our hard landscaping work may also include the construction of garden fencing.
STAGE 5 – THE FINAL TOUCHES
The final stages of the project include the fitting of the kitchen should the specification require it. LSP Builders supplies experienced kitchen fitters to the project for specialist work, such as the installation of natural stone worktops. Subject to project specification, LSP Builders also liaises with approved tradesmen to fit wall tiles, lay flooring and complete any further agreed cosmetic work.
The project manager completes a final run-through to ensure you are happy with our workmanship. Our house builders remain onsite to rectify snags where required and only leave once you are satisfied with the overall standard of the project.
LSP Builders continues working with building control during the official inspection stage to ensure everything complies with trade, industry and local authority regulations.
