In 1989 the only viable option to getting your loft converted was to use a small builder with very little expertise in maximising the full potential of the roof space or a couple of national loft specialists that would design your dream loft conversion only to sub contract out the crucial construction side of the project.
In over 20 years there has been only one very important change “Allied Welsh”.
Right from day one Allied Welsh were going to be different, the whole project would be carried out with in house expertise and “No Loft conversion would ever be sub contracted out”.
Now 20 years on they are the company’s site operation managers having developed massive knowledge and expertise in all aspects of Loft conversions and gaining qualifications in all areas of site safety so our customers know their home is in safe hands.
Health and Safety become a critical part of our loft conversion process during this period and after several discussions with the health and safety executive, Allied Welsh developed a unique scaffolding system with high level loading bay and heavy duty hoist that meant all heavy materials could be stored and then brought through the roof of the property minimising damage and disruption to the house during construction.
We are proud of Allied Welsh and that is why our vans are always fully sign written and all our staff will always be wearing fully labelled work wear so you know who your dealing with at all times from Mike Dobbs the site manager through the whole site staff including Lee, Nathan, Marc, Martin, Gerald, Matthew, Dewi, Corey, Keith, Karl, Dale, Matthew and Alex.
We will not do work without planning permission or building regulation approval, we will not do work for “ No Vat” (unless you are disabled or your house is listed) and we will not give your loft to Sub contractors , if you want any of these things Allied Welsh would have to kindly say no.
With a specialist Joinery the first major financial commitment, a unique staircase solution was developed. This was swiftly followed by a steel fabrication unit producing the unique steel foundation that supports 99% of our loft conversions and thus squeezing out every useable inch of the loft space safely and independent of the existing ceiling joists.
With the engineering background of director Lloyd James and the site expertise of the contracts director David Edgecombe the tone was set for fully qualified workforce carrying out their unique roles and not jack of all trades normally associated with a small Builder or subcontracted out workforce. With fully employed staff there was a pride in the end result not a ” that will do” culture, and with this in mind shortly came the introduction of Richard Lewis and Dean Evans fresh out of their apprenticeship and keen to make their own mark in the company.
Through the years all of our staff have been fully trained through to certification in every discipline relevant to the role they carry out in the company. This commitment to quality and qualification of its workforce was recognised in 2005 with the nationally recognised “Investors in people” award.
It is our belief that Allied Welsh are the only company in the construction industry ever to achieve this.
If on the other hand you want a company proud of its reputation, with its own trade premises where you can come and see your unique 3D drawings, steel structure and staircase take shape visit Mathew, Lee and Gerwyn at our bespoke premises developed over 21 years, and they will be glad to show you around and are available 5 days a week to show you all this or give us a call and either David Adams, Keith Howard or Lloyd will be happy to call to your house to help design the loft of your dreams.
