The design phase is one of the most exciting aspects of a loft conversion. You may have spent years studying and collecting various ideas for your ideal loft conversion, and now you find yourself in a position to move through with your plans and make your dream a reality. What occurs, on the other hand, throughout the formal design process? Who will create your ideal loft conversion?
A site survey with one of our expert surveyors is the first stage in the design process. They will come to your home and take accurate measurements of your loft space before discussing the best sort of loft conversion for your property and how many rooms you can accommodate within. You may discuss all of your design ideas and requirements that led to your decision to have a loft conversion. Our surveyors will then generate the first preliminary set of plans, complete with realistic costings and a variety of options for you to choose from.
Following that, you’ll have some time to think about the cost of your loft conversion, any modifications you want to make to the original designs, and how long your project will take to complete. Our surveyors will be able to discuss various glazing solutions with you, including VELUX skylights and balcony alternatives – you may find there are a lot more alternatives than you initially anticipated! While our surveyors will design the blueprints, you will ultimately be in charge, and they will work with you to develop blueprints that meet your needs and tastes.
After you sign your contract and one of our architects receives the surveyor’s blueprints, the next part of the design process begins. Your architect will double-check the surveyor’s measurements and draw up a set of architectural designs. Because this is the last step of the design process where you may make modifications, it’s critical that you’re entirely satisfied with your designs at this point. Once the architectural plans are finalised, a structural engineer will convert them into building codes that will be used by builders to execute your loft conversion.
As a result, when the building is underway, there is the possibility to make last-minute alterations, known as variants. These, however, will alter the overall cost of your project and lengthen the time it takes to accomplish it. Your project manager from your construction team will go through these changes with you and explain how they will affect the cost and timeline of your project. Once your loft conversion is complete, you should inspect it and make a snagging list of any minor repairs or changes you find.
You’re ready to start planning the interior of your loft conversion at this point! If you need our construction crews to tile your bathroom or instal any bathroom fixtures, we may do it as long as you discuss it with your surveyor at the start of the design phase. Your loft conversion will be finished with a plastered finish, allowing you to paint and decorate it as you choose. You may go through our case studies for ideas on how to decorate the inside of your loft conversion.
