Dutch term or phrase: Grote werken aan de woning
Unfortunately, I have no context at all. It's one of the many titles on a powerpoint slide. There's no additional information, just:

Kadaster & grote werken aan de woning

The other titles are about other subjects, not related to this.

How would a native say this in English?

When we carry out major refurbishment, the following works are usually included:
