How can someone tell if their Garage is suitable for conversion?
Check the foundations for new potential loadings and whether it is single leaf brickwork walls or solid brickwork walls.
If it is single leaf then a cavity wall will need to be constructed.
How can someone tell if their loft is suitable for conversion?
Minimum clearance for head height with building control is 2.10m to underside of ridge beam.
What do you love most about your job?
Calculations and optimisation.
We enjoy our designing lean structures which saves the client material costs, contractor costs and it helps reduce CO2 emissions for lighter steels, timber and concrete elements.
What inspired you to start your own business?
Being more direct with the clients.
By which means cutting out the middle man and politics was a huge inspiration.
Working for a large consultancy makes you aware of how much pencil pushing there is and how much money a client can lose from the middle men in consultancies.
Why should our clients choose you?
We are all or nothing and by that we want to survey and design as quick as possible to minimise any lost momentum in your construction as we know it can drag out for ages with other services and delays.
