The triple conversion: basement, loft and extension
We don’t just do basements. Simply Basement is part of the Simply Construction Group, which includes Simply Loft for loft conversions and Simply Extend for home and kitchen extensions. If you are considering an extension, loft and basement conversion then we can carry out a combination of any or all three together! By doing all of this at the same time you can make savings and reduce the complexity of the job.
What are the benefits of doing a triple conversion in London?
- Save money: by employing the Simply Construction Group to do a triple conversion there will be no need to duplicate work and similar tradesmen can be used across all of the projects.
- Faster planning process: As all the conversions will be put in one planning application getting approval will be quicker than if they were put in
- Save time: by opting for a triple conversion, construction work will take less time than doing it all separately.
- Reduced complexity: you will only have to deal with one company and one project manager and less co-ordination will be needed.
Will I need planning permission?
A triple conversion is a major undertaking and will most likely need planning permission – especially if you live in a conservation or heritage area. Sometimes planning permission is not needed, but this depends on which London Borough you live in and whether you have already built within permitted development. Simply have an in-house architecture team who will help guide you through the planning process and building work required.
How much will a triple conversion cost?
This is hard to answer as it depends on what you the client wants and the complexity and size of the build. A highly experienced Simply Construction surveyor will need to visit your home and discuss your requirements in detail before providing an accurate quotation and timing estimate of the works.
How long will a triple conversion take?
A triple conversion could take anything up to 40 weeks to complete. This is mainly due to the basement work as none of the work above ground can begin until the dig out and structurals are in place for the basement, which takes approximately 15 weeks to carry out.
