Many people are surprised at the amount of work required to convert a garage to the standard that we – and Building Control – are happy with. A well converted garage can add significantly to the value of your property.

Council Liaison, Approval & Certification

Regarding permissions and approvals, we had plans drawn up and we sent them into Building Control. We put a building notice in and dealt with any issues raised, so all the customer had to do was install the furniture.

The garage conversion was passed off and a certificate from the council was issued.

Minimal Council Involvement with a Garage Conversion

The conversion of your garage does not involve an increase in the footprint of your house, and the whole project is simpler, so permissions for a conversion are much simpler to obtain.
