The loft conversion authority

We know you will be carrying out quite a bit of research on which company you want to work with – and so you should. It’s important to get the right team when it comes to having major building work carried out on your property. As well as our enviable track record, most of the tradesmen and women who work with us have done so for fifteen years or more, in fact they are almost part of the family! We are also members of the Federation of Master Builders, The Fair Trades Association and Trustmark and all our work is guaranteed for 10 years.

In our time we have we have been instrumental in the development of loft conversions within Building Control, specialising in the use of The Building Notice Procedure introduced in 1985. We were also part of a panel advising on the radical changes in the Planning System where the permitted development rights for dwellings were much revised. In addition, we pioneered the use of Space Saving Staircases, leading to their introduction within the approved document Part K for staircases.

In our 40 years we have built thousands of loft conversions in properties large and small, old and new across the country. We have considerable experience of working with local authorities where planning permission is needed and we have also worked with several bodies when working on homes in conservation areas.


Most properties are suitable for a loft conversion and even when your property is a bit quirky – we will find a way to develop the space you want without compromising on quality. 


That’s why we are proud to describe ourselves as ‘The Loft Conversion Authority’.
