The Vincent, Bristol

It is vital to us that any companies we work with are able to replicate the high standards synonymous with the Lifestory brand. So, to have found a local company who can respond as Alabas do and offer the level of quality they do is fantastic. Not only that but the Alabas team have been able to build trust and respect amongst the property owners, who are not only happy to welcome them into their homes but on occasions have actually requested that we use Alabas when building work is being planned. I would have no hesitation recommending Alabas to other businesses looking for a high quality, trustworthy building company to work with.


Following an internal flood caused by a damaged waterpipe, Alabas was asked to submit a competitive tender for the reinstatement of 9 flooded apartments in Lifestory’s high end retirement development ‘The Vincent’ in Clifton, Bristol.

Project Details

Having won the tender, Alabas commenced the reinstatement of the apartments including replacing the underfloor heating as well as fully decorating the apartments and installing new floor finishings.

The project was logistically challenging as all works were taking place within an occupied development, necessitating restricted working hours. Additionally, it was very important that great care was taken when liaising with the people living there. In fact, the team really enjoyed chatting with the residents, and built up such a good relationship that they started receiving homemade cakes regularly on a Friday afternoon – a huge bonus for our cake loving team!

Standards needed to be really high given the upscale nature of the apartments and we were delighted to receive great feedback from Lifestory and the request to undertake additional works which we were happy to carry out.

The Alabas team are always a pleasure to work with . They have undertaken a number of office remodelling projects for us, and each time we have been really pleased with the work they've completed. They just get on with the job in hand, whilst being consistently approachable and friendly.
