Planning permission may be required for your loft conversion. We are able to deal with the planning application and have a 100% success rate in achieving planning permission with our designs.
The process normally takes 8 weeks from when the plans are submitted to the local authority.
All loft conversions will require a building regulations approval. We are able to deal with this application on your behalf. We have a 100% success rate in achieving a full building regulations approvals.
The building regulations covers many items on a loft conversion, such as:
Party Wall Act
We are able to deal with the Party Wall Act where a loft conversion uses the Party Wall during construction. In most loft conversions a Party Wall Act agreement will be required between you and your neighbours.
The Party Wall Act covers your neighbours for any damage that occurs when your loft conversion is built. The contractor building the loft conversion will have to put right any any damage to your neighbours property. We send your neighbours the Party Wall Act agreements paperwork and are able to bring in our own Surveyor to deal with any issues that arise.
Types of loft conversion:
We provide a full architectural design service for the following loft conversion types:
Full Rear Dormer Loft Conversion Plans
A dormer loft conversion is an extension to the existing roof that projects vertically from a sloping roof, creating additional floor space and headroom within the property. Internally, a dormer has vertical walls and a horizontal ceiling. It is the most common type of loft conversion, as the flat roof dormers often add the maximum amount of additional space.
Pitched Roof Dormer Loft Conversion Plans
Pitched Roof Dormer conversions lend themselves to large footprint or high pitched roofs. They are sometimes a requirement as apposed to full rear dormers if you live in a conservation area. A pitched roof dormer makes an attractive feature and depending on your property you could add various pitched roof dormers. Any dormers on the front of a property would require planning permission, but they can be added at the rear under permitted development in most cases.
Velux Conversion Loft Conversion Plans
Velux Loft Conversions are also known as rooflight loft conversions. Velux is the leading manufacturer of roof windows, hence the name.
With this type of project, the roof line is unaltered because the Velux windows are installed fitting flush to the existing roof line. A Velux type loft conversion works very well for lofts where there is a good amount of headroom or if there are constraints on planning,
L-shaped Dormer Loft Conversion Plans
The L-shaped dormer loft conversion is also very popular and is often considered the best way to extend a mid-terrace period property to maximise space. By opting for an L-shaped conversion you can normally comfortably add 2 bedrooms and a Bathroom / En-Suite.
Hip To Gable Loft Conversion Plans
Hip To Gable loft conversions add a considerable amount of headroom to a loft, as well as functional floor space. This type of conversion requires the roof to be stripped back to the top of the hip ends, the flank wall built into a gable, and extending the ridge to meet the gable. This type of conversion requires reconstruction of some of the front roof.
Mansard Roof Loft Conversion Plans
A mansard loft conversion, named after the 17th-century French Architect Francois Mansard, is situated to the rear of the property. This type of conversion has a flat roof with the back wall sloping inwards at an angle of 72 degrees. Windows are usually housed within small dormers. Mansard loft conversions normally require planning permissions due to large changes to the roof shape and structure.
