Of 11 requests for quotations, 6 Building companies listed under Check a Trade came to the site, result only 4 quotations received. The job was given to the company with a quotation that reflected the sheet given at the time of the visit, some had missed items off the final quotation. Phil Lavender started on my new garage on the 27th March 2013, He even sorted out the Building Notice for me with the local council. He was a bit optimistic with the time that it would take to complete (he quoted 4 weeks) the building was done in 6 signed off by the council in 8. Phil is a very pleasant hard working guy started at 8am every morning, I will not fault his work most done by hand even digging the drains and footings. He organised the other trades, Skip, Bricklayer, Roofer and Electrician. He invoiced me at the agreed stages with the final payment on council sign off on the 23rd May 2013. (Only problem I was never quoted for the cable from the house to the garage, I had no Idea of this cost until the final invoice). He produced a good quality Building that looks good alongside my house. I would recommend Phil to anyone needing a builder.

The building regulation certificate is still to be issued by the Council but the inspector has concerns with the drains that the fall is too shallow. I initially contacted the trader in October 2012 to request he arrange the drains test but did not hear back. After some months of trying, I finally arranged the test myself with the inspector at the end of March 2013 where he raised his concerns with the fall. Another drains test is required with the Council and written evidence maybe required of the gradients of the drains. Following letters from the Council and myself, and e-mails and phone calls to the trader, the matter is still unresolved with no indication yet of how this will happen.
Customer in Ringwood, 5 July 2011  
Response from Phil Lavender Building Contractor:
This customer opted to carry out a lot of the work to his extension himself. The building inspector inspected all works, (including drains) prior to us leaving site in 2011. The works carried out by the customer since then are not relevant to the work done by us. A letter from building control was recently passed to me from the customer and I have replied and am awaiting a response. If anything has changed in the 2 years since completion of the work. I will return to make any remedial works required.
