Compliant with Building Regulations
We plan your build in advance and submit construction drawings to South Tyneside Councils building inspectors. The process helps you get exactly what you want from your new space and avoids costly mistakes during the build phase.
Typically garage conversions do not require planning permission and are covered by permitted development rights. However, there are some instances where planning is required such as in conservation areas and new estates which may have had their permitted development rights removed. Part of our process is to check with the local authority if permission is required and obtain a certificate of lawful development. This certificate can come in useful if you wish to sell your home as it proves without doubt that your garage conversion is compliant.
A minimum set of standards that govern the design and construction of buildings, they are concerned with safety and health of the buildings users and aim to provide a comfortable sage environment. It is worth noting that the standards set by the Building Act are the minimum and higher standards are available and would be encouraged by our team who are happy to talk about upgrading the quality of the materials used. Building regulations for garage conversions are typically concerned with insulation levels and damp proofing. The reason is that the original garage construction was not designed to be habitable and requires insulation to be installed during the build.
The short answer is yes as anything is possible if the budget is large enough. Altering the layout may require structural work such as the installation of a steel beam. Our surveyor Michael will be able to advise on this and produce a measured survey which the structural engineer will use to specify the size of the beam and produce the calculations for the local building control department approval.
This does depend on many factors and it is not possible to give even a rough quote without first discussing the project. A garage to kitchen conversion including the removal of a structural wall will be considerable more than a garage to dining room conversion without structural works. It is also worth remembering that a well thought out quality conversion will add value to your home.
Yes, part conversions are actually one of our most popular requests. For example we can use some of the space to create a W.C or utility room while retaining the front of the garage including the door to access a smaller storage space.
