In mid-March 2020, Primrose Projects faced a dilemma; how can we keep our teams busy without sending people into London on public transport? Before the pandemic, a typical project for Primrose would be a six month residential refurbishment in London – even longer for retrofit basement projects. Our London sites often have fifteen people on site at one time making the idea of social distancing a fantasy.
Our solution was to diversify. Primrose have constructed many garden rooms in the past but usually part of a wider building project. With an increase in people working from home and a need for us all to social distance, the idea that Primrose could offer garden room construction as a stand-alone service was born.
The garden room shown below is the first project undertaken in Abbots Langley as part of our ‘10% offer’. We promise to beat the national garden room companies by 10%. In addition, we can do any associated building or landscaping works using local tradespeople.
Primrose is still very much a high-end residential contractor, but now with the added benefit of offering market-beating garden rooms. This one cost less than £20k and was completed in three weeks with only a one week mobilisation period from placing of order.
