Building Remodelling

Remodel existing rooms.

Knocking down internal walls.

Dividing rooms with partition walls.

Installing en-suite bathroom or downstairs cloakroom.

Remodelling is often the best solution if you need different living accommodation rather than extra living space.

In normal circumstances, planning permission is not needed for this work. However, the work must usually comply with the Building Regulations if it involves alterations to the structure of the building or the drainage, for example removing a load-bearing wall.

Building Extensions

Extending your property.

Single storey, two storey extension or conservatory extensions.

If you are running out of space at home you have two choices, moving or extending your building.

A single storey rear extension or a loft conversion is a popular choice for terraced homes, but if space allows, semi-detached houses may benefit more from a two storey extension or loft conversion.

New Build Design Services

If you are looking to build a new house, garage or outdoor building, we can assist you to design your dream build.

Building Converting

Converting unused space within the house or a garage conversion.

Conversions offer a convenient way to add an extra bedroom, bathroom or home office to your building.

If your garage is only used as a junk store, ask yourself if it would be better used as habitable space, we can help.

You will have to upgrade the buildings structure to meet current Building Regulations covering energy efficiency, damp-proofing and ventilation.

Planning and Building Regulations

Planning and Building Control are two separate departments within a local authority. Depending on your building proposals, it may be necessary to submit separate applications to both the planning regulations and the building regulations department.

Building Regulations

Building Regulations are a set of national standards that are in place relating to all aspects of a building’s construction.

Building Regulations make sure that buildings are safe, energy efficient and accessible to all people, including those with disabilities.

In most cases, any construction work will require Building Regulation approval.

Call us for questions and answers on Building Regulations on 07980 799827.

Planning Permission

When new buildings are constructed, major changes to existing buildings are made or significant changes are made to the local environment, it is often necessary to obtain consent from the local council. This is known as Planning Permission. This ensures that buildings are not constructed in an inappropriate manner and that consideration is given to the needs of the people who live and work in the area.

The Planning Department of your local council is responsible for deciding whether any new property development or changes to existing buildings can go ahead.

It is not always necessary to obtain Planning Permission for domestic extensions as some works are classed as Permitted Development.

We contacted AFAD to obtain drawings for a garage with office space above. He listened to our needs and supported us throughout the process ensuring the building mirrored or existing property. AFAD have always got back to our queries within the same day or at latest the next day and have explained each step so we’re fully able to follow the process. We are now looking at adding an extension to another property and will without hesitation use AFAD to carry out the planning process. Many thanks

N. Austin, Sale, Manchester

What our Building Architecture Clients have said

“We have not undertaken a large extension before, so my partner and I were relatively in the dark when it came to correct procedures in applying for planning permission. Alun was really understanding to our needs and provided us with advice during the whole process, which took the pressure out of what could have been a stressful procedure. Nothing was too much trouble and Alun has offered to provide advice, not only to ourselves, but also to the contractor once we engage.
We found that Alun’s costs were very competitive and his friendly, helpful manner made it easy for us to choose his services. If in the future we decide to have any further work done we will definitely go with Alun”.
