A beautiful extension brings families and friends together as well as making life a lot more comfortable. Did you know that you might not need planning permission to have an extension? Part of our work includes helping you with bringing your dream to life and making things work. Once we have an idea of what you would like we will discuss this with our qualified and experienced architect to do things properly and provide their recommendations.
This approach can save you thousands in unnecessary fees and let’s be honest why should you pay to discuss ideas?
Extensions are used to house new:
Free project check list – Here are a few things to think about when dreaming about extensions..
Planning Permission Planning permission for extensions is not always a requirement if you work within the confines of the permitted development rules. Check the rules here:
Building regulation/control for extensions There are certain extensions that are excempt from building control however nearly all developments larger or more complicated than a porch require building control sign off and approval.
Discuss Ideas and dreams for your extensions. This is the stage that we want to learn everything about you and your dream. What would you like to happen? Where will the work be carried out? What is the outline of the proposed construction? How do you want it to look? Who will use it ? Have you had any drawings made by an architect? If we secure some of the basic facts about your dreams it will make the Architect check and pre-planning work more of an easy process keeping costs to a minimum.
You don’t have to work with our architect… We are geared to work with any architect organisation that adopts modern day practices so please put us in touch with them as soon as possible so can work together.
At this stage we can provide a good idea on costings for your extension.
Obtaining planning permission can be a lengthy process and its important that we have as much information in the previous steps as possible, so the architect can get the application right and in as quickly as possible.
Full costings estimate When the planning consent is granted for your extension we will have a firm set of instructions to finalise a price for you and will submit a complete estimate/quotation.
Our team are hired for their talents and their willingness to please our customers. We take health and safety extremely seriously and take every step to minimise accidents. To date we have not had any reported or un reported site accidents.
Client checks/Time for additions When your extension project nears completion, we will arrange to walk you around the development and discuss everything and ensure you are happy. This is the point that we will invite you to suggest changes for extras as well as discuss how closely we are meeting your dreams.
