Village Street - Update #1

This article give an insight into the works that we udertake in a project such as Village Street and keeps investors up-to-date on the project itself.

The Village Street project has been well underway for some time now and we think this is a great opportunity to tell you more about the works being undertaken. Doing a property development is something many people want to do but never get the chance.

This project was undertaken whilst the building was empty but many landlords looking to improve a house currently in their portfolio would choose to do work such as this whilst the house is vacant.

Having a list of trusted builders, managing their time on site and the order of work is key to the smooth running of a project such as this. Otherwise, it is very easy to have the project drag out and run over budget.
