France Solutions work exclusively side by side with several French builders situated in the heart of the Charente region.
All are very established building companies based close to Angouleme, the capital of the Charente. Having built over 700 houses in the Charente and surrounding departments they pride themselves on being one of the leading building companies in the South West.
All of their teams are French qualified. The builders and architect design team are salaried staff, giving them full control over the quality, finish and time span of your build.
Our engineer can visit the plot you have selected and determine its suitability and location of services before you commit yourself to visiting the plot. Once we establish this is the plot for you we can liaise with the notaire to ensure that your purchase is subject to the 'Permis de Construire' to enable you to build your dream home and not just CU (outline planning permission).
We work very closely with EDF and Gaz de France and with our levels of insulation values currently at 110% of EDF's required level, we can actually work out your energy consumption and thus your annual bills; so very useful when planning for the future. This is certainly a consideration when we are subjected to carbon taxes etc. We are happy to discuss and plan into your build use of eco materials and products such as natural wool insulation, solar panels and ground source heat pumps, wood pellet burners and other methods of heating your property.
Homes are fully insured for both workmanship and materials for ten years and also carry a full 'Garantie de Livraison', a separate insurance to ensure that we will deliver your house when specified in the contract.
Offering a wide range of finishing materials and using some of the best quality products available, we also offer a wide choice of tiles, floor finishings, bathrooms etc. During the course of the build we help you through the various stages, tailor the electrical layout to your exact requirements and guide you through our various showrooms where you can chose everything for your new home.
We have our show house and offices open to view, as well as several other show houses. There are also approximately 20 other 'Chantiers' houses under construction for you to view during their various stages of construction. Whilst a lot of new build companies are struggling in these harder times we are still very busy and have continued to expand our offices during 2011.
Hundreds of plans are available which we can send to you but nearly all of our builds are individual and customised to our clients' requirements
Send us your criteria and requirements, then we can send you through a selection of plans by email and then by post once we have got closer to the type of design that suits you. One thing that’s for sure, its certainly very advantageous to build new. Once we have with your ideas, designed your property, you can of course choose your plot, the area that you really like, situate the house well within the grounds with the view and the orientation that suits you
We do also work with local estate agents who can show you a selection of building plots for sale that you can visit when you are in the area and of course we are very used to liaising with local councils and planning, to discuss your requirements and style of property that you wish to build.
