A basement conversion is the perfect way to extend your home to meet your needs. Whether you’re looking to add a guest room, a gym or even a swimming pool to your home, converting an existing basement is a great solution. In addition, extending your living space by moving downwards is a lot cheaper than moving house to find the extra space.
We have a team of basement specialists, from structural engineers, to architects and designers, and between us we can help you convert a basement into a space which the whole family can enjoy.
As with our basement constructions the initial stage of the basement conversion process involves carrying out feasibility surveys and creating comprehensive plans.
These plans may need to be supported with a basement impact assessment and a structural engineer’s report.
These plans are then submitted to the local authority for approval; once the basement conversion plans are approved we can then set to work on the basement conversion process.
The extent of the structural work required for the conversion will depend upon the current condition of the basement in terms of:
- The level of the water table surrounding the basement
- The stability of the foundations
- Current basement height
- The structure of the floor above the basement
Although there is a lot to consider when looking at converting a basement, we will always offer professional advice which will help you to understand all of the options.
