Basement Conversions and New Builds

The typical internal layout of the UK housing stock does not always lend itself to the requirements of modern living. The options are to sell and move or to alter your house and correct the poor layout providing a better space that all the family can enjoy and use.

The trend now is to look down towards basement conversions in London, rather than up as families are demanding more from there internal living space and looking to change to suit their life style. 

 We can help with the planning process particularly in  the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and Hammersmith and Fulham where the borough subtereanan developement guidelines require the planning application to be accompanied by a construction method statement. This has to be signed off by a chartered structural engineer, proving that the below ground development would not have a negative impact on adjoining properties. Should you require architectural services we can recommend firms in your area that we have successfully worked with in the past and can help in realising your aspirations.

Once you are successful with the planning application we can carry out the structural engineering design of the basement and provide full detailed drawings and calculations enabling you get building control approval.

Fees for the construction method statement and structural design of the basement vary depending on the complexity of the work, the structural input required and the size of your project.
