Project Brief – Loft Conversion | Size – 27m2 | Approximate Cost – £45k (2018) |
Services Provided – Design, Building Regulations
Here we have an example of how to make best use of General Permitted Development Legislation (http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2015/596/contents/made).
This clients owned a 1930’s semi detached house in Wadebridge and wanted to add an additional bedroom and ensuite if space would allow. The most logical space to utilised was the loft.
With the existing roof featuring a hip end the client was unsure as to what was possible and at what price point. Our expertise in the development of loft spaces was invaluable in determining the best design for their requirements.
At a minimum a dormer to the side elevation would have been essential to provide adequate head height for access to the loft. On seeing this option the client felt that they could benefit from further space and as such a hip to gable conversion with rear dormer was proposed.
Carful design considerations were made that ensured this development could be completed under Permitted Development Legislation negating the need for planning permission and saving the client from unnecessary costs.
We provided a detailed building regulation package including a structural specification and worked with the contractor as required to complete the development.
