New Build Properties

L Spencer’s have constructed numerous new-build properties throughout Lancashire, from one bedroom bungalows to seven bedroom mansions.  The benefit of a new build property, is that VAT can be reclaimed on building materials, and in most cases, we don’t have to charge VAT on our labour.

We can help from the initial planning stages, and can recommend quality architects, structural engineers, and ecological surveyors to get plans drawn up.  Once these are in place, we can offer the complete managed build package including groundworks, building, roofing, plumb & heat, and building control, or you are welcome to use our services as required as part of your construction team.

Meresands – Rufford

Client: Mr & Mrs Street

Location: Rufford

Set in a beautiful woodland area, this family home was built next to the owners kennels & cattery business. The imposing red-brick building spans three storeys, and provides a huge floor plan which is separated internally with decorative brick walls, and a brick fireplace.

To the rear of the property, we installed hardwood double-glazed bi-fold doors to provide extra light to the ground floor, and a large apex window making use of the full height of the building. A balcony was also added to the first floor which looks out over the mature woodland.

We took a long time planning our new build and looked around at several buildings, studying the brickwork, mortar and the different types of bond and pointing etc. Having worked in the construction industry building Hospitals and the like for over 30 years, I am fully aware of the value of quality tradesmen.

Word of mouth is the best gauge of a good tradesman, especially when recommended by others whom you trust. When choosing Lee, he was the only one that we felt could deliver the standard we wanted, in our time scale and would not be aggrieved when we made a last minute change (the nature of self-building!) and on reflection we made the right choice. Lee Spencer produced one standard at all the previous jobs he had shown us – excellent. His estimated cost was fair and the final cost came in on budget.

The working environment while the lads were here was happy and productive. Lee took in all our requests (however difficult) and also gave helpful suggestions and options around problems that arose.

We love our new house and get endless comments about how well the brickwork looks and we would not hesitate to use Lee Spencer and his team again, if we were ever to build another house

Gravel Farm – Banks

Client: Jayne & Jeff

Location: Banks

We love this six-bedroom new-build property we constructed for Jayne & Jeff. It features three dormers to make use of the high roofline, 3 velux windows, four bay windows, stone heads & cills, three chimneys, and a decorative brick fireplace. Mullioned sash windows were also fitted. To the side, we constructed a double garage with large utility area.

The whole build was done by our team, including initial consultation, foundations, building work, and building control.

We would like to take this opportunity to express our appreciation for the excellent work you carried out, building our lovely house. We have been delighted with the quality of the work and with the reliability of your team. You have done an excellent job.

On site, you and your team worked extremely hard; you arrived first thing every morning, worked hard all day and cleared up at the end. We were impressed with the thoroughness of your work –you all did an excellent job. It was reassuring that we were kept fully informed of progress each day.

Inevitably, with every build project, a few unforeseen issues and changes arose, and these were dealt with promptly and professionally. We appreciated the good advice you gave us on a couple of decisions that we needed to make.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Lee and his team ,fantastic job a pleasure to have on site! Jayne and Jeff

Royal Umpire – Ulnes Walton

Client: George Harrison Senior

Location: Ulnes Walton

Built within the grounds of a large caravan site for the owner, this new-build bungalow has three bedrooms and a large floorplan.  The exterior features a grand entrance with stone pillars to match the stone heads & cills, and stone mullions.

The property was developed by our team from the foundations up, using block and Furness brick.  Full-fill cavity wall insulation and hardwood double-glazing was installed to keep environmental impact low.

I would like to thank Lee for all of his hard work during the building of my home. I could not have asked for a more professional job or quality of workmanship.

I would definitely recommend his company L.Spencer Building Contractors to anyone looking for an efficient and high quality service.
