The opportunity to create more space

Client brief: Create a simple, rooflight loft conversion. Although there was no dormer there was still a significant number of trades and professionals involved in this conversion.

How we can achieve a conversion like this for your home

A simple loft conversion with no dormer will still add significant value to your home.

The general schedule of works was as follows:

  • Architect produced detailed drawings for client approval.
  • Once approved, drawings were sent to planning for a letter of lawful development (takes around eight weeks).
  • Meanwhile, structural engineer prepared detailed plans ready for the construction team.
  • The scaffolding was erected and materials (including steels) were delivered onto the scaffold directly.
  • Steel and floor structure constructed.
  • Insulation and stairs fitted.
  • Plumbing and electrical first fixing completed.
  • Plaster-boarding complete followed by the plastering team.
  • Second fix electrical, plumbing and carpentry completed.
  • Snagging and decoration completes the project.

Our customer was delighted with the final loft conversion – a building regulation compliant loft conversion which had an internal head height of two metres.
