We are the only Midlands based loft conversion company to work in partnership with Birmingham city council building control.
What does this mean?
Where ever you live in the midlands we submit all our architectural drawing to Birmingham city council building control for initial plan approval. Once this approval has been granted which is normally within 7 days the plans and approval are handed over to the relevant council authority for site inspections.
How does this help you?
This enables us to obtain your approvals in a quicker time than others state, guaranteed to be inspected and passed by a local authority and not by an approved inspector and at a cost efficient price.
How does this help us?
This allows us to have a single point of contact with Birmingham city council building control, this allows us to keep up to date all the current regulations through continual updates from thereselves enabling us to know what is required on all our structural drawings, and what is required during the construction process.
What approvals are required?
Due to planning laws being relaxed in 2008 the majority of loft conversions/garage conversions do not fall under the scope of planning laws anymore. They are classed as’ permitted development’ enabling 99% of these to be carried out solely under building regulations even when there are dormer roof extensions are added. Some extensions fall under this permitted development right providing certain criteria is met.
Building regulations are required for all types of extensions, loft and garage conversions. These are carried out by the relevant local authority who inspect the works at various stages to ensure the works are being constructed to the correct specification and accordance with building regulations.
For a completely project managed service that allows you to carry on with day to day life whilst your home is transformed we are here to help.
