The project comprised conversion of an undeveloped basement (concrete slab, minimal electrical and plumbing) into an independent, integrated and self-contained basement apartment (
-compliant). Initially, a dig-out was not anticipated. When it became clear that would be essential for the project, I was very glad we had
(BC) on the job. After
electrical clean-up, BC cracked the slab around the perimeter and, in five sets of sequenced excavations of 3' sections of the foundation, fitted molds and poured reinforced underpinning blocks to a depth of 3' below the existing shallow foundations. (The house is 100 years old, with very shallow foundations beneath the existing basement floor.) I've attached a few photos of the before and during work phases.
This sort of work -- a full basement dig-down to 3' -- is very messy. We expected the significant disruptions to our back yard, from where all the mechanized equipment worked; plan to set aside large outside areas for the staging of materials and the movement of mechanized equipment -- this simply goes with the project. The disciplined effort that BC put into the project kept everything moving. The foundation work, especially, was unlike anything I've observed a contractor undertake before -- top notch work, done purposefully, but not in a rush or cutting corners. And the new double sump system will take any deluge that nature might ever throw at this house: it is redundant and high capacity.
The finishing work, after the new slab was poured, went as most such framing and finishing projects go. No surprises. Getting everything just right at this point becomes a BC fetish: the finishing work may initially appear rough, but the final go-through renders everything highly polished and satisfactory, while saving significant time on the construction process.
We had regular meeting (usually on a Saturday or Sunday) with the owner and his colleagues, and the workers were on site most Saturdays and some Sundays. The work crews on site were the right size for the work and the confined space; it is hard to imagine the project proceeding quicker than it did (although it didn't feel that way sometimes). Communications with the company were optimal.

We independently interviewed several contractors to have the repairs done in the back, and consulted with a structural engineer for a paid evaluation.
was the one who seemed the most knowledgeable about the structural issues, recognized the need for a consult with a structural engineer, and agreed with all the recommendations of the engineer. They came in higher than most of the quotes, but several were recommending alternative types of repairs that sounded like shortcuts and concerned us.
For work execution, it couldn't have been better. They used quality paints, and other parts from what we could tell. We got the sense they were very concerned about doing good work and making sure we were happy. They were extremely quick, efficient, and clean. They left everything really tidy both during the work and after. They were also always around when they said they would be, and would call to ensure we were happy with the progress. They were really willing to work with us before and during the job, providing several estimates and letting us choose only the parts of the job that we wanted done. Finally, the end result was quite nice too, and we were generally happy.
They finished the job cleanly, very quickly, at the cost they estimated, and did exactly what we asked for. In short, I wouldn't have any concern about the dependability or quality of the work. The only issue was that the price as a bit higher, but in our case it was worth it for the convenience and confidence in the end product.
