Project Brief

Our client planned to upgrade their property’s profile by extending their loft and creating two new front dormers. This makeover would completely transform the external aesthetics of their home and maximise the space internally. While the project was valued at around £149k, this type of construction could dramatically boost the property’s value.

  • Location: Barnes, London
  • Property Type: Semi-detached home
  • Project Value: £149k
  • Service(s) Used: Measured survey, planning drawings and detailed building regulation drawings

Our Solution

To begin this extensive project, our team of architectural technicians conducted a comprehensive measured survey to produce existing and proposed floor plans and elevations. These clear documents allowed our clients to confidently communicate with contractors and effectively plan their loft conversion.

Using the information we had previously gathered, we helped our client submit accurate drawings to obtain planning permission. Planning applications are never as straightforward as they seem, and that was definitely the case for this project, as the local authority refused our initial application.

As always, we took this setback in our stride and recruited the Pure Town Planning team to help us appeal this decision. After a structured rebuttal, we overcame the decision and could move forward with the project.

Following the successful appeal, we created detailed building regulation drawings for our client’s contractors. With our help, our client completed their dream conversion and completely transformed their home.

“So glad we trusted Amico.”

"So glad we trusted Amico. We thought we might need to give up on the conversion after our planning application was refused, but with Amico’s help, we were able to get the project back on track. Can’t thank them enough!"

Great service
