Small Works Service Detail

Small works


We’re big on small projects!

Our Small Works Division specialises in delivering projects up to £100k.

The division caters for all types of work regardless of trade type, and particularly specialises in disabled facilities adaptation works.

A personal approach

We appreciate that not all of our clients have experience of the building industry, and although they know what their requirements are, they are not always entirely sure how to achieve them.

In many cases the value of a small works project does not justify the engagement of an architect to assist with the plans. That's why our experienced multi-disciplined surveyors are always on hand to help, advise, scope and specify any small works projects required.

In addition we can advise clients whether there are any specialist considerations that need to be made for their project such as Structural Calculations, or Planning or Building Regulation Approval.

The small works team

Our team that deliver small works projects have been specially selected for their ability to deliver works of various types to very exacting standards. Our project managers are typically from a trade background, so are never short of innovative solutions that produce the most cost-effective results.

Delivering the works

To ensure a consistent approach for all works that we deliver, our small works teams fall under the same management structure as our Construction Services Division. This ensures not only that we provide our customers with a specialist team that can deliver their works for them, but also that all works are carried out to the highest of standards with the backup and support of a professional infrastructure.

The majority of our small works projects are delivered using our own directly employed trade operatives, and we cover all trade types, including mechanical and electrical. All of our trade operatives are highly qualified and receive regular training, with a particular emphasis on working with vulnerable people and within occupied properties.

After care service

As our company offers a diverse range of services, our customers can rest assured that we’ll be there to assist them long after their small works project has been completed. Our maintenance teams are always on hand 24/7, 365 days a year to provide a reactive service, and we also offer planned preventative maintenance packages.

  • What are small works?

    Small works are projects in your business that need completing that are too large for a handyman and too small for a full fit out team. They typically range anywhere from £500 to £100,000. The extent of the works depends on the businesses requirements, but typical small works completed by Fishbone include office reconfiguration, room re-decoration and installing air conditioning. It really can be anything that concerns building or refurbishment in your premises.

  • When should I consider getting small works projects completed?

    The thing with small works is that unless it is urgent, you can fit the works in and around your business. It is best to choose a time that is not too busy for your business and if this proves to be too difficult our team can always come in and work out of hours to ensure minimum disruption to your work.

  • Do I need permission for small works?

    Permission is dependent upon what works you are completing and if you have a lease, what is in the lease to allow you to alter the building. It may also be dependent upon building regulations if the changes affect the structure of the building or planning permissions may be required if the building is listed or if external changes are required, for example changing the main signage of a retail outlet or changing the shopfront.

  • What type of works fall into a small works category?

    The list of small works is almost endless, but good examples of recent small works that we have completed include: reconfiguring an office, installing a tea point, painting an office, re configuring the lights in an office, repairing the ceiling in an office, several floor box moves, moving office furniture, repainting a shopfront, flooring repairs, suspended ceiling changes, installing CCTV, fitting TV's or projectors in several rooms and building a new bar.

  • How do I get a quote for my small works project?

    That's the easy part...Just give us a call on 01442 244117 or use this form to drop us a line and we will come out and meet with you to discuss all of your small works requirements.

  • How long does a small works project take?

    Of course that is dependent on the project that we are completing, we will sit with our clients and discuss their requirements in terms of timing both in relation to dates and hours to ensure that business downtime is kept to a minimum and that the works are completed as soon as possible to allow you to continue with what you do best.
