Technical Information

Our Process 

Following your initial query, we will visit you to determine whether a loft conversion is suitable for your property, and the options that are available to you. The majority of lofts are able to be converted.

Shortly after the consultation you will receive a quote for the planned work. The quote will be for the complete package to include the architect, planning permissions, building regulations, plumbing, electrics, materials and all labour. 

The quote will be valid for 30 days. If you decide to use our services after this time, simply call us again to confirm whether it will need to be revised.

Planning Your Loft Conversion

The initial consultations will give you a clear idea about what is possible and will be incorporated into a quote.

When the quote has been accepted and the project begins, the plans will be drawn up by our esteemed architect. At this point you'll have a clear picture of what your new room will look like.

When you are happy with our architect's plans, we will ask you to formally approve them.

We will then submit the paperwork to the relevant planning department. Approval will usually be granted in 2 - 3 months.

Some properties may not require planning permission, provided the loft conversion is the first extension and does not exceed 40 cubic metres on a terraced property, and 50 cubic metres on semi-detached and detached properties. This condition does not apply if the property is located in a Conservation Area, where planning is always required.

Once planning has been approved we will prepare Building and Fire Regulation plans and submit them to the Local Authority Building Control department for design appraisal and structural calculations.  These will be checked and approved by the Structural Engineering department.  (This takes approximately 4 - 6 weeks for approval.)

Upon approval, we will submit a Statutory Commencement Notice to the Local Authority Building Control Department.

We will then obtain the necessary permits for skips and waste from the Local Authority.

Once these steps are completed, work will commence.

Loft Conversions

If the work involves any new accommodation in the roof space (bedroom, spare bedroom, study, occasional playroom, etc.,) or any structural alterations such as adding or removing joists, installing a roof light, or trimming the rafters, then you will need to make a Building Regulations application.

If it involves any alteration to the size or external appearance of the building, then Planning Permission may be required.

What  do I need to consider?

The following guidance applies to a loft conversion of no more than two rooms and a floor area of no more than 50m² in an existing one or two storey single-family dwelling house. For advice on any other type of building, please contact the Building Control section. The information in the following pages is meant for guidance only.
