conversion is different, but they all go thorough the same basic stages. From
your initial enquiry, our consultant will visit you to determined the potential
of your loft for a conversion, and to discuss the feasibility of the scheme. The
minimum height in your loft space has to be no less than 2.3m for a loft
Detailed measurements will be taken, and your requirements for the proposed loft
room will be discussed with you. We will advise on the most suitable loft
conversion for your property. Shortly after this you will receive a fully
itemized quotation that is valid for 30 days.
Once our quotation has been successfully accepted we will ask you to place a
non-returnable deposit. Our architects will then survey your house and prepare
draft plans which will be submitted to you for your approval.
Once approved, detailed drawings for your loft conversion will be prepared for
submission (if required) to the Local Planning Authority, for approval. This
process normally takes between 4 & 8 weeks.
Consent is received (if applicable) we will then prepare plans for Building
Regulation Approval and submit them to Building Control for design appraisal,
and structural calculations for any proposed steel joists.
We now write to your neighbours informing them of activity to any joining party
walls, and if there are any concerns to contact us.
Now all the paper work is sorted out we are ready to start, we will sit down
with you and discuss a start date!!
We start by erecting scaffolding and delivering materials to site, all materials
will be transferred to the loft via an external scaffold, only breaking through
into the house to fit the new staircase. Depending on the size of conversion,
you should allow 8 – 12 weeks for the works to be completed. There will be an
appointed person on every project, who will manage any concerns or issues that
may arise, keeping the project on course and completing it to our usual high
A final inspection from Building Control will be arranged and final completion
certificate will be issued.
