Mark and Laura Spavin had a somewhat unusual project in mind for their bungalow. That is to say, they wanted to convert it into a house. Not exactly a straightforward proposal, but this was their dream. It involved keeping the ground floor, removing the roof and adding another floor.

First came the homework; Mark said: "The project involved months of planning and research, even before planning permission. Having looked at a number of alternative building systems, we finally chose Kingspan TEK. What clinched it was the product’s quality, the speed of construction, value for money and excellent thermal performance.”

Taking time to consider which Kingspan partner to work with before choosing Point1, Mark and Laura were offered help and advice from first contact. "Garry and his team were thorough in the preparation detail. From our initial enquiry, we knew Point1 could help us build our dream home."


A slight complication was that the Spavins were living in their bungalow while things went on ‘upstairs’. This required the installation team to be particularly careful with the surroundings. It certainly made things a little more challenging than with a new build or extension.

However, the end result was worth it. “We have been able to design a home to be exactly how we wanted it to be. Not only did we choose the right product, but also a delivery partner whom we would wholeheartedly recommend. Point1 did everything we expected. The frame was up and built within nine days of starting and there was great communication throughout.”


“We had excellent help, support and advice from Point1 from the first contact. Everything arrived on time, the installers were highly competent and knowledgeable. From the initial onsite meeting to completion, Point1 did everything we expected and more. We would certainly use the company again and have already recommended them." - Mark and Laura Spavin, Greater Manchester, March 2017
