Loft conversions

We prepare the designs for over 80 Loft Conversions every year, both directly for householders, as well as for Loft Conversion companies. Architectural drawings might sound fancy, but they’re an essential part of achieving a quality loft conversion. We work with our clients to help bring their visions to life and take the first step in creating their perfect space.

Loft conversion designs speed up the building process and maximise the potential living space of your loft. We would always recommend getting an architect on board. That’s because loft conversions require additions to your roof, often, increasing space and head height. Projects that change the exterior appearance of your home come under stricter planning, so you’ll need someone to design your space who has an understanding of both planning and experience in creating approved structures in the past.

Lofts can be challenging to design, but the benefits to the end user are huge. We will be able to advise you on potential designs, what you will need to have in place to comply with the Building Regulations, or if you will require planning permission. To be on the safe side, check with your local planning authority before starting any work.

Our services have helped homeowners in Cambridge, Essex and the surrounding counties, to unlock the full potential of their loft space.
