Loft Conversions

Whether you are looking to create additional space for your home, or add a bit of value, allow Design & Development Associates to guide you through the process in a simple and hassle free manner.

Why choose a loft conversion?

A loft conversion is becoming an increasingly popular way of adding additional habitable space to a property. Since the increase in stamp duty, many people are opting to undertake a loft conversion to add an additional bedroom/en-suite, office or play area as a cost-effective alternative to moving.

There are many types of loft conversions available, depending on how much space is required.

A simple velux loft conversion will allow a new habitable space to be created within the existing loft void which would be suitable as an additional bedroom or office.

If more floor space is required, a gable or dormer can be utilised to increase floor area. Larger proposals can create two additional bedrooms with a bathroom/en-suite which is ideal for an expanding family.

What Design and Development Associates Offer

Initially Design & Development Associates offer a free consultation to establish the following;

  • The practicality & buildability of a loft conversion on your property,
  • Design ideas to ensure the maximum potential is achieved,
  • If the proposal would require planning or fall under permitted development,
  • Likely build costs for your proposal,
  • The process of moving forward from the initial meeting right up until completion.

From this consultation, we can then set out a formal quotation to obtain any necessary permissions and ensure all paperwork is in place prior to the commencement of works.

  • We manage the entire process from concept to commencement of works as part of our standard service. This includes liaising with planners, structural & building control to ensure the correct profession is instructed at the correct time.
