Refurbishment

“In an emergency situation Hamilton Associates were fantastic. Professional and focused on quality of work, with regular updates on status, it took all the stress out of getting urgent repairs done – I want to do a full renovation just to use them properly!” EK, Brook Green
South Kensington kitchen“Hamilton Associates was one of three companies recommended to me to co-ordinate and undertake a major refurbishment of my newly acquired flat. I selected Hamilton Associates as I was impressed by Ed’s professionalism, constructive advice from the outset and enthusiasm for the job and I was confident that I could rely on him to deliver what I was looking for.”

“He did not disappoint – Ed and his team were a delight to work and the end result far exceeded my expectations, and the quality of the workmanship has been complimented by visitors to the flat. Furthermore, there were no nasty surprises on costs, with detailed estimates provided in advance for approval, or delays in timing. I have no hesitation in recommending Hamilton Associates.” SI, South Kensington

Richmond bathroom“I heard of your company and its achievements through a trusted friend and their recommendation wasn’t misplaced. The service prior to the work commencing was open and complete. The work was undertaken by a team of very competent and fun individuals.”

“The finished product is excellent and even after four years there are still no deterioration to the finish. All in all I would highly recommend Hamilton Associates.” SPM, Richmond

Fulham kitchen“We regularly recommend Hamilton Associates to others, having used them three times ourselves. Workmanship has been excellent and offered with thoughtful solutions. Projects were very efficiently managed, based on realistic costs/budgets that were met each time. Good, honest businesses like this are hard to find in London.” JC, Fulham

“I was recommended Hamilton Associates by a friend and would not hesitate to do the same. From the start they were helpful and professional. The work was finished on budget and only ran late as Edward was adamant the finish had to be perfect. We were not disappointed! We will definitely use them again.” SM, Fulham
South Kensington rooftop garden“Hamilton Associates came highly recommended to me through a highly regarded professional source in the property industry. I was not disappointed! Now I have recommended HA to others with full confidence, and now Ed and his team have been my first choice for my other projects as they have come up. I like using HA because I’m confident that the work is going to be of a high quality, the cost is going to be managed properly with no shocks after the fact and that the project is handled with intelligent expertise. When building work is involved it can get pretty fraught and even stressful, but Ed knows what he’s doing because he has a lot of experience: he’s on top of the project and I have found his guidance invaluable, so it keeps that stress to a minimum.”

“The people working on the team have always been very polite and helpful, and very diligent about cleaning up properly, even after each day’s work. Call me old fashioned, but I think that’s a sign of a real professional – someone who takes pride in his work, his work environment and how he conducts himself. That’s all part of the Hamilton Associates experience.” AZ, South Kensington

Fulham living rooms“Recently Hamilton Associates have carried out two separate pieces of work for us: Firstly, a new bathroom. The estimate was competitively priced and completed on schedule. They were most helpful in recommending layout and fittings and accompanied us in choosing and buying all the various units. The bathroom was finished to a very high standard and the overall workmanship was very good. During periods of waiting for plaster/paint to dry etc the team carried out a number of ‘odd jobs’ around the house some of which some were given free of charge. Edward kept a close eye on all proceedings and visited daily and also on request.“

”Secondly, on the strength of the work done to the bathroom we asked Hamilton Associates to quote for building 3 sets of fitted cupboards in our sitting room. Again the quote was very competitive, and we were thrilled with the outcome. We ran into a few unexpected problems, in this case damp, however Edward arranged for a specialist to resolve the problem. Overall – very impressed.”

“We would highly recommend Hamilton Associates and would not hesitate to use them again in the future.” LF, Fulham

“I have seen many townhouse conversions in London, but can quite honestly say that I have never seen such a beautiful refurbishment. The house is absolutely magnificent and I would give it a 10/10 and that is in every room. It has the wow factor throughout… and the quality of finish is unrivalled.” PC, Hammersmith
“I have recently used the services of Edward Hamilton to completely strip and re-waterproof the flat roof of our Mews house, Kensington SW7. I could not be more pleased with the work he has undertaken and the whole attitude of both he and his top class workmen. Punctuality, friendliness, attention to detail and reasonable pricing all persuade me unhesitatingly to recommend him as a first class builder.” LV, Kensington
“Hamilton Associates recently completed works to our Victorian terraced house, and we couldn’t be happier with the result. Their inventive design has opened up our ground floor and added much needed extra space in the loft.

“While we were guided thought the planning system without hiccup, the build process wasn’t all plain sailing; we discovered some serious structural faults with the property which demanded on site solutions. Thankfully Hamilton Associates’ experience enabled them to manage these issues as they arose, and deliver the project with real professionalism.”

“The team on site were punctual, friendly and achieved a high quality finish throughout the house. On top of all this Edward worked around our schedule and was able to meet late in the evenings to keep us updated on progress.”

“Hamilton Associates’ superior level of service exceeded all our expectations; we’d have no hesitation in recommending them to our friends and neighbours…indeed we already have on a number of occasions.” NSI, Hammersmith

“Ed and his team have completely transformed our London home, from an unloved ex commercial property into a bright, airy and functional townhouse.”

“The square footage has almost doubled through a series of clever extensions in the loft, to the rear of the property and a substantial lower ground floor. We have also gained a tastefully landscaped garden complete with garden studio that serves as a home office and guest suite.”

“Hamilton Associates designed, project managed and delivered the build with minimal fuss and maximum capability, negotiating a difficult planning process and complex build with apparent ease. We thoroughly enjoyed the process, and the end product that we now live in and love is testament to their skill, care and commitment.”

“We would highly recommend Hamilton Associates for any design and refurbishment works you are considering.” WSH, Shepherd’s Bush

Project Management

Richmond kitchen“I had put off redesigning the ground floor for donkeys years, if only because I was scared of getting the builders in. But then I came across Hamilton Associates. He patiently listened to me trying to explain what I wanted, offered sound advice and, after 3 months of hard work, turned my dreams into a reality! I am thrilled with the design and level of build and would not hesitate to recommend you to my friends and colleagues” LC, Richmond

House in Pimlico“My wife and I approached the complete refurbishment of a house in Pimlico with a certain amount of trepidation having had our fill of horror stories from friends and relatives.”

“Thankfully our sixteen month project passed almost without incident and what could have been a stressful process turned out to be as near enjoyable as it possibly could be. This was thanks 100% to Edward who managed the project in a professional, transparent and completely client centred fashion from day one. Edward is ever enthusiastic, but also a realist and helped manage our expectations as to timing and cost throughout. He proved very able from start to finish. Despite this being a Grade 2 listed house Edward succeeded in negotiating a number of complicated quid pro quos with the planners, which enabled us to make some substantive changes to the internal structure. He helped us with the vetting of the contractors and managed the day to day relationship with them and various subcontractors to our complete satisfaction. Crucially he met with us regularly, giving us a running itemised breakdown of the costs, showing where we were going over and where we were saving money.“

“He also helped us with the endless and at times tedious process of visiting and revisiting suppliers of bathrooms, wallpaper, floors, fireplaces, cornices, sound systems, paints and so forth, mostly on weekends, until we were satisfied with what we had chosen. Since the official handover Edward has ensured a thorough review of all the ‘snags’ that needed attending to and pursued the people responsible for making good.”

“All in all I have no hesitation in recommending Edward, competent, honest and one of life’s good guys.” CR, Pimlico

“…we were really impressed, as compared to “better known” designers we have worked with over the last year, your design is simply head and shoulders above. Seriously, congratulations.” Sheer Contractors
Chelsea home“Hamilton Associates handled the comprehensive refurbishment and renovation of our apartment.”

“From liaising with the landlords, freeholders and other regulatory bodies to the actual construction work and follow up, Edward was proactive at every turn and his efforts ensured that the project commenced on schedule and was completed smoothly.”

“What is often a fraught and anxious experience turned out not to be so and we unhesitatingly recommend Hamilton Associates.” WZ, Chelsea
