How could an architectural partnership achieve the best renovation results?

Selecting the right team of architects and builders is critical to the success of your project. 

That's a lot of pressure!

We partner with like-minded, award-winning architects, giving you a cohesive design & build team to complete your plans.

Clients often tell us:

"It's tough to find the dream team of architects and builders, especially when they often feel like two separate worlds to deal with."

How can Alpha 1 make the process easier for you?

We've thought long and hard about making the experience of working with architects and builders together as a team better, and easier for you.

The result?

We've come up with our Align Design Renovate experience, and we're proud of the results it's producing.

How does our Align, Design, Renovate experience work?

We've successfully completed character renovations, like yours, with each of these architects.

We are your point of contact from the very beginning, making the process much less daunting and more straightforward. Who doesn't want that?

Below you'll find some of our architectural partners, the projects we have worked on together, and see why they enjoy working with Alpha 1 Builders.

Paul is very proactive, always thinking ahead to ensure details are resolved and holdups are avoided. Any detail that needs to be adjusted is worked through with the best options given.

"We've really enjoyed working with Alpha 1 Builders. Paul and his experienced team keep a very clean & organised site and run well-structured meetings.

We've found their communications with us and our clients to be clear and concise and they proffer up solutions rather than problems throughout the build. The finished quality of their work is excellent and we would happily work with them again".
