This very much depends on what your project is and where you live e.g. if in a conservation area. These days many house extension fall within what's called permitted development and you may not need planning permission. Talk to us early in the process and we can give you some guidance. If your project or extension does need permission we have a team of architects and consultants whom you can call on to get planning applications submitted and approved.
Building regulations approval is not the same as planning permission and you will usually need building regulations approval if you are put up a new building, building a house extension or altering an existing building, (eg. a loft conversion for habitation), if you are installing services or fittings in a building, e.g. washing and sanitary facilities, hot water cylinders, foul water and rainwater drainage or replacement windows. Don't worry we will advise you and get all the necessary approvals done for you.
Again this depends on what your project is but the answer for 95 % of house extensions or conversion projects the answer is YES! We will plan the works to incur the minimum inconvenience or disruption for you. We will cover & protect from dust and debris and and will only take down utilities when absolutely necessary. All our operatives are trained to clean as they go and to remove waste materials as they arise.
