Spaces Building specializes in new builds, extensions, kitchens and bathrooms, and is well known for the sympathetic refurbishment and conversion of traditional and listed buildings and the design and implementation of energy efficiency improvements.  Spaces were one of the first businesses qualified to design and install renewable forms of power through the micro-generation scheme.

Building and Property Maintenance

Andrew and Sarah formed a property renovation and letting company in 1994. It was very quickly apparent that finding trades people to fix repairs on time and on budget was going to be a big task. Spaces Building was formed initially to cope with this demand and then grew! All of our staff are trained carefully to respect your home (or your tenants' home). If we say we are calling at 8am, we will, and we will make sure to clean up any mess afterwards.

Renewable energy Solutions

Spaces have always had a strong environmental ethos, and offer many building solutions that have a low environmental impact such as green (turf) roofing, air and ground source heat pumps, mechanical heat recovery, rainwater harvesting, timber frame construction and very high levels of insulation. One of our flagship projects was the design and construction of a four storey block of eight flats in Sherwood, Nottingham. The design concept was to construct the building from renewable sources and to conserve as much energy as possible during occupation. The brick clad timber frame build was completed in 2005 and considerably exceeds even current standards of insulation. "In theory at least this building is so energy efficient that it does not require heating, in reality only token heating is provided for occupier comfort" said Sarah Godfrey who was the principal designer of this project.

We are accredited to fit solar panels and have installed several systems in Nottinghamshire and Norfolk.

Plumbing and Heating

We have all the badges! Oftec for oil, Gas Safe for gas, MCS for renewable energy. Plus we have years of experience. Andrew's engineering experience comes in handy for the very tricky problems.
