Chalet Construction & Renovation – Courchevel, Val d’Isere & Lake Annecy

Our project portfolio shows a range of our chalet construction & renovation projects over recent years.  Simon Jones undertakes building & chalet construction & renovation projects across the Savoie region, including Courchevel, Meribel, Val d’Isere, Ste Foy Tarentaise, St Martin de Belleville and Lake Annecy in the haute Savoie.  A selection of some of our completed projects, (construction, build and renovation) can be viewed here.  We undertake build projects of varying complexity and size: from the construction of new build chalets, to structural alterations and chalet extensions, to simple internal and external chalet renovations.  The majority of our work, but not all, is architect-driven.  We are often involved in projects a year or two in advance of site works commencing.

Most of the projects undertaken by Simon Jones are classed as large scale, major building works: they usually incorporate at least some degree of construction and structural alterations.  They invariably require the involvement of architects, structural engineers, ground surveyors and thermal studies.
