Whether you are adding to your property a ground floor space to house a family room, kitchen & dining space, study, utility or bathroom and upstairs a new bedroom with ensuite there are lots of elements to consider. We can help from first concept ideas through to assisting you in finding a contractor and having your project ready to start on site. Here's some helpful points when considering a two storey extension.

  • What is your budget? Aside from our architectural fees you will require planning approval, building consent and structural calculations.
  • Is your property listed or do you live in a conservation area?
  • How does the drainage work where you'd like to extend? An Anglian Water agreement may be required. This is also a service that we can provide you if it is something that your project needs.
  • Depending on what your extension is for design possibilities may include: roof lanterns, ceiling windows or bi fold doors. This will be an additional cost that will need to be considered at design stage.
  • Does your vision for your extension include excessive glazing? Our in house SAP assessor will be able to provide all the necessary calculations in readiness for your technical working drawings.
  • How may the extension impact on your home? Consider if you can live on site whilst the work is being carried out.

My build will require local authority applications/ other agreements, can you help?
