Case Studies

Demolition of existing outbuildings and the construction of a new 2 storey extension – Sheffield

We have recently completed another high profile bespoke project for a client in Sheffield and are currently working on several commercial projects in the Sheffield area. The quality of our workmanship is supported by our CHAS accreditation and membership of Constructionline which included the demolition of existing outbuildings and the construction of a new 2 storey extension in keeping with the existing house which includes new master bedroom with dressing and en suite facility, new reception room, new office, garage and galleried landing.

All external hard landscaping was re-cobbled to maintain the character and charm of the location.

1st Floor extension and alterations works – Sheffield

By building over and altering the existing garage we have increased the number of bedrooms and substantially increased the living space downstairs. Our clients are delighted with the results and have given the following recommendation.

“Their quotation was very competitive compared to others. They have planned the works and kept to the original programme. The quality of work is very good and the service offered has been excellent. The workmen are considerate and always tidy up at the end of each day. I can recommend Hillside to any person looking for a local builder.”

Two storey extension and refurbishments – Sheffield

After building a ground floor extension to the rear of the house we completely refurbished the downstairs creating an open plan kitchen and dining area with high spec kitchen units and appliances.

“We received fantastic customer service from Hillside – any issues were dealt with promptly and to our satisfaction. The whole team were friendly approachable and courteous and really did go the extra mile. We have no hesitation at all in recommending Hillside.”

Meadowhall Shopping Centre – Sheffield

We have recently completed another high profile job, the removal and relocation of the bronze statues at Meadowhall Shopping Centre.

We have completed numerous projects for Meadowhall, including the highly sensitive task of re-siting the iconic bronze statues of the Steelworkers to their new external home outside the Next Retail Store in the Orange Car Park.

The project involved the difficult task of breaking out the reinforced concrete base supporting the statues which had unexpectedly been cast with the Shopping Mall foundation. The works were undertaken outside normal working hours when the Shopping Mall was closed to the public.

We designed and constructed a new granite covered concrete base, carefully transported the statues to their new location and securely fixed them to the base and finished with uplighters to provide an illuminated centrepiece.

The original internal location in the Mall was made good and reinstated to match the surrounding area.

Stone and Glass Property Extension – Peak District

Our project brief was to convert an existing outbuilding and build a stone and glass extension to link to the existing house.

The project consisted of stripping out the old kitchen area and installing a new contemporary kitchen with new downstairs WC. We remodeled the existing walls to form a glazed link sunroom with wood burning stove which formed access to a new dining room, utility room and garden WC. We also damp proofed an old cellar in the former outbuilding and fitted a bespoke glazed door which gave access down an English Oak staircase crafted in our own workshop, to a superb wine cellar.

Externally we remodeled the areas locally around the extension forming a natural stone patio and stone retaining walls with sculptured circular stone steps to the garden area.
