1. When was Insides established – and who’s behind it?

Insides was established in 2005, and has grown steadily in size and expertise since that time. Insides is owned and run by Robert Brown and Richard Harrison.

2. What’s the average duration of an Insides project, from the initial consultation through to the post-construction stage?

The average duration of an Insides project depends on the size and scope of a project.

A small domestic project can be completed in a couple of months, but a large commercial project may be on site for over a year. We will produce a bespoke programme for each project outlining key dates and indicating the overall project duration.

If planning is required for a project, a statutory 8 week planning period is also factored into the total project duration.

3. What kind of projects do you normally work on?

Our work is varied and, as such, there is no such thing as a typical project. Our work regularly ranges from small flats and studios to large houses and commercial projects.

4. Is Insides regulated by any trade bodies?

Yes; Insides in a member of the Federation of Master Builders.

5. What’s your insurance policy? Do you have Public Liability and Contract Works Insurance?

Insides has full contractors contract works insurance. All of our employees and subcontractors are fully insured and we carry public liability to a value of ten million pounds.

6. Do you have an environmental policy – and do you use any recyclable or renewable materials in your construction work?

Insides is aware that the construction process and building use not only consume the most energy of all sectors in the UK and create the most CO2 emissions, they also create the most waste, use most non-energy related resources, and are responsible for the most pollution. Because of this, we take our responsibility toward the environment extremely seriously and have a written environmental policy. We take care to recycle or reuse as much material as possible and refuse to use any timber other than that accredited by the FSC.

7. What’s your Health & Safety policy?

We have a written health and safety policy. We are members of the Construction Skills Certification Scheme and abide by the construction design and management regulations. We also believe in taking a hands-on, common sense approach to health and safety and try to engender a sense of personal responsibility to health and safety in all our staff.
