Build 2016 Architecture Awards 54 Company: Dab Den Ltd Name: Kat Byers Email: [email protected] Web Address: Address: Units 6&7, Brathens Eco Business Park, Hill of Brathens, Banchory, AB31 4BW Telephone: Aberdeen: 01330 833861 / Glasgow: 0141 2129571 ab Den offers a unique experience that makes designing, and building a dream home enjoyable. Kat explains how the firm achieves this by working closely with clients to ensure that their vision is properly fulfilled. “Here at Dab Den we provide a specialist, professional service throughout the project, with regular progress updates. The customer is dealing with one architect that sees them through the entire project from initial brief to the final coat of paint so that they have one point of contact and they know that their ultimate vision for their home will be realised, with no details missed. “Therefore, whether it is a new build house, house extension or garden room our architects are experienced in preparing bespoke, award winning designs and our highly skilled tradesmen then build your dab den product with high quality materials to ensure the best standard of finish.” Extensions are a key part of the firm’s service, and as such Kat is keen to highlight the firm’s focus on quality. “Dab Den Extensions are designed to give you open plan living, and the uniquely designed spaces will improve your quality of life by adapting your home to the needs of a modern lifestyle. With large expanses of glazing, and improved insulation the Dab Extension benefits from solar gains and reduced air leakage, making your building more energy efficient. In addi- tional the internal spaces are flooded with light and open out to the garden, creating a synergy between outside and in, which subsequently creates a healthier living environment.” Moving forward, Kat was opportunistic about the future despite the challeng- es the UK housing market faces following Brexit. “With Britain preparing to leave the EU, we face unsettled and challenging times ahead however we believe this is a time people are focusing on im- proving the homes they are in rather than moving, making the extension side of the business strong for Dab Den Ltd. Earlier this year we launched Dab Den Glasgow to complement the work we also do in Aberdeenshire, so that we can provide the Dab Den products more easily to the central belt. “At the end of the year Dab Den will launch their new product, Dab Dwell- ing, a contemporary style house that will be available with the full design and build service.” Dab Den Ltd Best Sustainable Building Company - Aberdeenshire Dab Den design and build contemporary new build houses, extensions, and luxury garden rooms in Aberdeen, Glasgow and Edinburgh. We invited Kat Byers to talk us through the company and how it strives to achieve the very best outcome for every project. D AR160041
