We employed Red Star to remodel the ground floor of our late Victorian terraced house, and cannot recommend them highly enough. The build took around 6 months to complete and from the outset Red Star were a real pleasure to work with. The quality of their work and attention to detail were second to none, and we especially appreciated their excellent communication both face-to-face and by email/'phone, transparency and friendliness - it made the whole process very smooth. The project was on time and on budget, with Daniel always available to answer any questions that came up. Our existing designs were enhanced by Daniel suggesting previously unthought of details, and reused traditional materials, especially stonework, in a way that complimented the new features of the house. We are thrilled with the results and the way that Red Star have enhanced our home. Huge thanks to Daniel and the team at Red Star.
Red Star completed a total renovation of our Georgian New Town home. This was an extensive project of our ground and lower ground apartment which hadn’t been modified in any way since the late 1950’s and had stood empty for a couple of years! Not only was this an exciting and full on renovation it was an interior designer’s dream, which we embraced fully … from 6000 miles away in Hong Kong where we had been living for the last twenty years. Dan and his team quickly earned our total trust with their ability to turn our personal ideas and designs into reality for our retirement forever home.
We simply cannot speak highly enough of Dan and his tradesmen whom we found to be conscientious, cheerful, highly professional and with an attention to detail and flexible ‘can do’ attitude rarely found in the building trade these days!
A project of this size and nature cannot be without surprises. However, when they did arise, they were dealt with speedily by an immediate phone call, What’s App message and a photo from Dan which enabled us all to discuss, decide and then carry on!
We would not hesitate to recommend or use Red Star for any future projects.
We have worked with Daniel on a number of projects involving the conversion or alterations to Listed and historic buildings. A recent project includes the conversion of an A-listed townhouse in Edinburgh’s prestigious New Town into 5 luxury apartments. This townhouse included the sensitive refurbishment and preservation of the existing features alongside the insertion of new alterations to create these contemporary and luxurious apartments. Daniel follows the drawing packages and our instructions diligently and intelligently, communicating to his team the high standards that are expected and consistently provided. He keeps the lines of communication open at all times between all parties, resolving any issues that arise quickly and professionally. He deals effectively with all challenges thrown at him and we would have no hesitation in working with him again and would highly recommend him and his team.
Daniel has been a pleasure to work with and his team are equally attentive and careful. They achieved a very high standard of finish on a recent project that saw them remodel the rear of a traditional Victorian terraced house in the Trinity area. Daniel’s communication was always professional and reliable, which meant it was easy to develop a trusting relationship. Coupled with that was his care and attention to detail which shows in the final project, everything was thought through and nothing was too much to ask. We hope to be able to find more opportunities to collaborate with the Red Star team in the near future.
We worked with Daniel on the conversion of two existing Grade B listed townhouses from a single office to 9no flats. From the beginning it was evident that Daniel understood and appreciated our design and was eager to ensure that it was realised without compromise. He effectively communicated the design principles to his team on site which ensured that all were aware of the required level of attention and execution. His ability to foresee and be proactive in resolving problems that might affect either the design or the programme was invaluable. Daniel’s excellent attention to detail is clearly evident in all nine completed flats and we would be keen to work with him in future projects.
Red Star did a great job on the refurbishment of my property in the West End. Dan and his team are very diligent and worked hard to deliver a project with a fantastic high quality finish. The attention to detail was great and we were also able to bring in some much needed insulation and damp proofing which Dan suggested. I was really pleased with how the project progressed, and the communication was clear and reliable. I would recommend Red Star to anyone looking for a trustworthy contractor you can rely on to get a great job done.
Red Star provided a very professional and conscientious service for our recent renovation. Daniel had strategic oversight of an impressive array of skilled trades: liaising with suppliers, trades, architects and ensuring as smooth a process as possible. We were delighted with the end result when we could finally enjoy all their hard work in our fabulous refreshed home.
Red Star completed a full overhaul of my entire flat. The flat was completely gutted from traditional format and rebuilt with a completely different floor plan. I found Daniel and his team incredibly professional, trustworthy, reliable, and personable. The workmanship was outstanding, and the work was completed on time and on budget. As and when minor hiccups arose, as they always do (or my request for changes), they were dealt with immediately and with professionalism, and always a sense of humour and a smile. The Red Star Team were respectful to all the neighbours with regards to noise, movement of equipment and cleanliness of the common entry hall and stair throughout the entire works. I would not hesitate to use Red Star for my next project.
