Gravitas Build Ltd

Hello and welcome to our page here on Bark. We are a Birmingham based construction company covering the whole of the West Midlands. Our background is in the commercial/industrial sector where we have worked on a variety of projects, including Schools, NHS Surgeries Care Homes and Housing. Our current projects include a community centre in Dudley and Funeral Parlour in Birmingham. The level of our expertise means that you are unlikely to want us to build your single-storey kitchen extension or refurbish your bathroom. That type of work is better suited to the smaller builder. Our skillset is more tuned to large extensions or house builds, the sort of project that requires the next level of planning and attention to detail. How do we work Over many years, we have pulled together a team of dedicated construction professionals intent on delivering projects on time and on budget. We use the latest technology to produce fully itemised tenders which give a breakdown of every element of a build. This allows you to know exactly where your money is being spent. We also use state of the art project planning tools enabling you to see precisely where we are in the building program. Why do we do this? Well, we've learned over the years that communication is key to the success of any construction project. We also know that some builders don't always provide the information customers want. So, by developing an open, transparent service, with regular updates based on structured, clear to understand information, we can easily keep you in the loop. This will give you the peace of mind of knowing exactly where we are in the build process, and where you stand with your budget. Like the idea of appointing a building company with a wealth of commercial building experience? As a team, we have worked together for many years, and we'd love to hear from you. Feel free to get in touch.

How long have you been in business?

The team have worked together for many years, though Gravitas Build Limited was officially set up last year 2020.

What guarantee does your work come with?

All suppliers provide some kind of guarantee or warranty associated with the products supplied. Depending on the nature of the project, a retention is sometimes used to cover breakdowns, bad workmanship (rare), or things that for one reason or another are not fit for purpose. This might amount to a 2% retention based on the value of the build. Basically the contract would allow you to hold onto 2% of our money to cover the cost of putting work right where you had to appoint another builder to correct defective work. This is all allowed for via a JCT Contract.

What do you love most about your job?

Construction is a very challenging occupation but also one of the most creative too. Because we get involved with the process at all levels, conception, planning and construction, we have the benefit of seeing something developed on a drawing board (computer these days), become a reality; a legacy for future generations to use and benefit from, we wouldn't do anything else.

What inspired you to start your own business?

At some point or other, the team have all worked for other employers and I suppose its the dissatisfaction of having to work to someone else's low standards, particularly when they are trying to cut corners just to save a £pound here and there that eventually wears a bit thin. We believe in "team", in "quality", and in delivering a project that not only we can be proud of, but one that you can be proud of. We can only do that by being in control of our own company and having a say.

Why should our clients choose you?

They say that a property is most people's biggest investment and that may be true. But home is where you live, where you bring up your family, where memories are made. Your home provides you with a lifestyle born out of the dreams gleaned from watching property programs and house improvement magazines and why not. Our dedicated team of professionals are passionate about helping you fulfil your property dreams and we bring with us a wealth of experience gained from years of working in the commercial world where high standards of workmanship, time planning, and communication are not just expected, they are demanded.

Trusted building tradespeople belong to The Federation of Master Builders, which is a well-regarded building industry association.

Make sure you do your research before hiring a builder, no matter how big or small your project is. Don’t be afraid to ask for examples of previous projects, references from past clients, and any professional accreditations that you’d like to review.

Always make sure you agree on a contract before you begin the project. This should include a detailed quote for the work that will be carried out, a full breakdown of the project, timelines, insurance, pricing, and a payment schedule.

You should also check if the builder will carry out the work themselves, or if they will use subcontractors. Make sure you agree on the deposit (generally about 20% of the total project cost) and if the builder offers any guarantees on the work, and for how long. Make sure you have this agreed and documented, in case you need to make a claim further down the line.
