Loft conversion is a great way to improve your home and living area. If you need an extra room or would like some additional space then a loft conversion is an affordable way of expanding your home without the upheaval and expense of moving.
We have cost effective solutions to help you maximise your available space without the hassle of a full-scale extension whilst at the same time increasing your property value. Sound good?
A fully qualified structural engineer will establish the suitability of your loft space and create a design for your home. The designs will cover all aspects of the loft conversion such as:
Roof alterations or rebuilds.
Considerations for planning permission, party wall and building regulation requirements.
Glazing for the conversion.
Any necessary structural alterations to allow circulation with the room.
Considerations for layout, fire escapes and safety measures.
New floor structures to support the new weight loads.
Minimum headroom requirements above the staircase.
We need the following information to design a loft conversion:
Plans of the floors below the level of the loft conversion showing the position of the load-bearing walls.
The ridge height of the roof above ceiling joist level.
The size, number and positions of the existing purlins.
The size and spacing of the existing rafters.
The type of roof covering (concrete or clay tiles, slates etc).
The approximate location of the building.
